Hero

Hero - Rhonda Byrne This is the story about why you are here on planet Earth. There is something special about everyone. The life we live and the life we always want to live is different but how can you fulfill your dreams shows in this book. This book is about the journey of twelve most successful people living in the world today. They share their stories and reveal everything one's need to live their dream. The book consists of four parts with the struggle faced by the heroes of this story.

Part One - The Dream

Whatever circumstances you were born into, whatever family life and education you had or didn't have, you came here to make your dreams come true, and no matter where you are now, you are fully equipped with everything you need to do it. It's not the conditions of the outside world that determine whether or not your dreams will be fulfilled. By realizing your dreams, you will realize the greatness in you. The author described that every single person born with some unique talent or ability and no matter how impossible that dream seems to be, you are being called to follow it. When you refuse the call from life to follow your dreams, you run the risk of living an unfulfilled and unhappy life & you will feel regret it in future.
Even if you don't know yet what your dream is, there's something you can do right now that will accelerate your dream materializing: give your best to whatever you're currently doing. Follow your bliss and follow it with all of your heart. Although you can't see the whole way ahead, your bliss is the thread that will lead you to all of your dreams.

"Take a job that you love. I think you are out of your mind if you keep taking jobs that you don't like because you think it will look good on your resume. Isn't that a little like saving up sex for your old age?" - Warren Buffett

Part Two - The Hero

To believe in yourself is perhaps the most powerful ability you have available to you. Your belief will carry you through every difficult situation or circumstances. If you don't believe in yourself today it just means that in your life you have accepted thoughts about yourself that other people put upon you and you believed them to be true. Remind yourself that you have incredibly powerful abilities and all you need to do is take one step at a time. People think you are a liar when you're visualizing your dreams because they think, that's not happening. That's not here. But it's absolutely here because if you can think it. It can happen. There are always going to be both positive and negative experiences. But if you consistently look for the good and maintain a positive attitude you will triumph. If you have a burning desire for your dream, then you will have all the determination you need to make it a reality.

"Success is achieved twice. Once in the mind and the second time in the real world." - Azim Premji

Part Three - The Quest

Many people give up on their dreams or don't even begin to pursue them because from where they are standing they can't see the whole path of their dream. No successful person has ever known how his or her dream would happen. They simply believed that it would happen, and didn't give up until it had. Your dream will never end up being smaller than what you thought. It will only become greater, in ways you could never have imagined. Every obstacle or challenge you encounter on the Hero's journey transforms you as you acquire strength of character and the qualities you need to overcome the challenge.

"Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great." - Mark Twain

Part Four - Victory

The ultimate reward for the success of your dream does not mark the end of the journey, but the beginning of another. Experiencing the rewards from realizing a dream is glorious, and every person who fulfills their dream deserves each and every one of those rewards. You can help others with your time or resources. At the end of the Hero's journey, you will discover that the eternal happiness you've been looking for is in the discovery of who you really are.

This book is very inspiring and motivating. This book tells us that nothing is impossible. The author uses quotes from others to inspire. All you need to believe in your instinct. The book focuses on motivating people. I would highly recommend this book and it's worth of your time and money.
