Srikumar S. Rao presents a broad, philosophical context you can use to contemplate the notion of success. Though he covers complex ideas that derive from global traditions of ancient wisdom, the book is accessible and maybe not quite as deep as it might be, given the topic. If changing your personal “reality” were really as easy as these exercises suggest, the world might be an easier place. Rao includes exercises designed to help you open your mind and confront your preconceptions, as well as a reading list designed to jar loose and challenge the daily “realities” you may take for granted. getAbstract recommends this to those who are new to the genre of self-awareness literature, and who want to find success through contemplating or rediscovering joy and purpose.
In this summary, you will learn
- Why you react the way you do to events in your life;
- What you can do to change your perceptions; and
- How to live in greater harmony with the universe.

Comment on this summary
5 years agoChanging your personal reality is not easy, and neither does this book suggest that it is. It's a lot of hardwork. Rao's main point is that it's worth the effort.
