The best way to reach your set goals, adding achievements and striking off things from your bucket lists, is to start enjoying life. To understand the joy of life, one has to go through the tedious process of understanding who they are. What it means to be “ME” — including why we think, feel and act the way we do. The best way to learn about yourself is to understand psychology and then apply it to your own life.
Most human experiences take place unconsciously, meaning we aren’t aware of WHY we feel or act the way we do. By learning how the human mind functions, we become CONSCIOUS of what is taking place INSIDE of us and how this influences how we tackle the quests of life. Once you understand the power of your mind, and how it works, you can use it to consciously create the life you desire, as well as to help those around you.
For Vishal Jacob, the Vice-President, Digital Media and Marketing, Wavemaker India, the journey of self-discovery and realization began four years ago. In his experience of working with extremely competent individuals he gathered that all the problems that they were facing was just people related. And that’s when he decided to write his book, Connecting With Yourself – Why We Think, Feel & Act The Way We do.
The book reflects upon all his learning over years, here, he looks into the most relatable issues of daily life, such as Perceptions, the reason behind many professional and personal conflicts, Growth, Decision Making, Habits & Willpower, Happiness and most importantly, the idea of the self.
