Poet Rumi once said: "When you are dead, seek for your resting place, not in the earth, but in the hearts of men."

Aren't these wise words from a very wise man? Well, we all have our own challenging moments in life. Challenges come n go. Calamities too, come n go. We too, sail the boat of our life so as not to sink in deep circling waters. All top performers have developed ability of keeping their setbacks in a proper perspective, learning from them and then advancing confidently in the direction of their dreams. It's never losing sight of the fact that the work you and your team is doing impacts on people's lives and you can make a difference.

So, when one of my friend just rang me up and said, hey why do you keep working all the time when people who get highly paid call it 'peanuts' - Well, I guess 'Work is a force that keeps one getting wiser, otherwise what's a life for? Just a question that pops up 'Who will cry when you die?' Robin Sharma's book has all the answers I presume!

Robin Sharma,the Author says: "When you live your truth, your dreams beat a path toward your doorstep". A practical solution to create a sound Life and strikingly balance life filling in the gaps with humility. Robin refers to his father's words that a tree that has most fruits is that which bends to the ground. And though there are some exceptions he have found in his own experience that it is true-the people who know the most, who have achieved the most, and have lived the most, are also the people closest to the ground. In a word, they are humble.

The book is indepth wisdom with absolute life changing solutions to cope with life's trials, challenges, frustrations and so on.
