“Here is a test to find whether your mission on earth is finished. If you’re alive, it isn’t.”
Richard Bach, ‘Illusions’
“I didn’t set out to be rich. The fun and the challenge in life were what I wanted- and still do, but I have found that, if I have fun, the money will come.”
Richard Branson, Entrepreneur/Business Magnate
“I learned more from the one restaurant that didn’t work than from all the ones that were successes.”
Wolfgang Puck, Restaurateur and Businessman.
The world changing project that was initiated by the book, ‘The Secret’, followed by ‘The Power’ and ‘The Magic’ returned with the latest work ‘Hero’ (2013), another enlightening book from the same author.
This book continues the legacy of the previous books by Rhonda Byrne, which emphasize on the ability of the human mind to create its own reality. The focus is on the metaphysical aspects that believe in the power of thoughts, in generating the experiences in life. Positive thinking, finding purpose, positive self talk and visualizations are the inherent message of the series.
The book ‘Hero’ is a compilation of twelve every day heroes from all over the world, who overcame tremendous odds to obtain enormous success. The books contains their insights, wisdom and their story of hard work and determination. All of them are recognized authors, investors, inventors, sports people, business people, actors and entrepreneurs. The book is basically divided into four parts:
- The Dream
- The Hero
- The Quest
Each part signifies the Hero’s journey which starts with “a call to adventure” and further explains the consequences of refusing your call. This part also teaches how to find your dream by following your bliss. It is followed by the second part which deals with the vision, the mind and heart; the way and the commitment of a hero undertaking the journey towards the dream. ‘The Quest’ is everything about the obstacles, disappointments, failures, trials and miracles that lead to the supreme ordeal. And the final part talks about the reward of completing the journey and how it unveils the hero in you and makes life worth living.
Though the book lacks coherence and is a bit contradictory in itself and also to the ideas presented in ‘The Secret’, the reason why this book is recommended is that open this book at any page and you’ll find something that will boost you. It has sections dedicated to every factor of success.
