There are many things I have learned about the nature of success; from the library of books I have read and collected, I came to familiarize myself about the principles of achieving what we want in life. Still I find something lacking. Though I made an effort in implementing the principles I have learned, there are forces within me that blocks my success in life. I would always end up finding myself mired in fear, laziness, bitterness and procrastination.
With all my effort I have tried to dissect the reason why I have failed in the pursuance of my aspirations. But then that I found that I am being manipulated by a system within me that is resisting success. Such is the reason I have written this book. I want to share with you the things that are holding us back from succeeding. It is right before us but we are too blind to see it. Because of our tendency to restrict ourselves to the safety of the familiar, we have denied ourselves of the opportunity of reaping the rewards that awaits us.
The book is short, brief and simple. It portrays some aspect of our mentality that prohibits us from achieving our dreams. A simple truth has opened my eyes: No matter how much we acquire the knowledge of gaining success in any field, if we don’t have the knowing of our own selves and seek awareness, there will be no triumph of any form.
See yourself before your mind does; it is only then that you will gain complete control of your self. It will take time to break your self from the habits of the mind, but with awareness, effort and commitment, you will gain mastery.
