The Art of Fully Living by Tal Gur–Review-4 stars

The Art of Fully Living:::::.jpg 850.jpg

A True Story of One Man’s Incredible Journey!

The Art of Living Fully is an insightful and thought-provoking memoir. 

Tal Gur had all the perks of being a successful businessman when he decided that the corporate life was not for him. He wasn’t happy. So he decided to give it all up. Tal Gur made a list of goals that he wanted to achieve in his life and started fulfilling them, one by one. This book is his story. 

I like how the author outlines exactly how he went about reaching his goals while traveling around the world. Tal Gur doesn’t only include his successes but also his discouraging moments. Many of the inspirational points that he makes in this memoir are exceptional and good reminders about believing in oneself. 

While reading this book, I couldn’t help but think about the goals that I’ve met, and the ones that I still have on my list. Tal Gur encourages the reader to plot out their goals and follow their dreams. In a nutshell, this book is a wealth of knowledge in an easy to follow format about living life to the fullest, being true to yourself and finding happiness.

Thank you, Tal Gur, for my complimentary copy, of your inspirational memoir, The Art of Fully Living.

What if the payback for acts of kindness was an increase in your happiness? What if it also increased happiness for the person you were kind to? And what if you were both more likely to be kind to someone else, because of it? Amazing but true, it seems. It could be said that acts of kindness are contagious. All we need to do is start.

Slow down. Notice what’s going on around you. Consciously look for opportunities to be kind. Maybe it’s a smile, holding the door, buying a writer’s book, wishing someone a nice day, or helping someone in need. It doesn’t matter what you do…but do as much as you can, as often as you can.

Here’s a great article explaining the positive feedback loop between kindness and happiness. Leave a comment on any cool examples you discover. Also, check out my Ultimate Quick Guide to…

*Happy Days*:) The 23 Secrets To Happiness by Deanna Williams

Happy Days 23 Secrets to Happiness

Happy Days, is an excellent reference, filled with important tidbits of wisdom, on how to live a positive, happier and more carefree life.

Happiness is a choice, and although genetics plays a significant part in a person’s inner happiness scale, there are still things that they can do to boost their mood, and eventually their own happiness.

Each chapter in this book discusses one of the 23 secrets to happiness. Within each chapter, the author gives the reader ideas on how to utilize each secret and make them part of their everyday life.

Making a commitment to choose happiness every day is the very first and the most vital step a person can take. This book is all about fine tuning the mind, body and spirit to focus on what’s good in life, fix what’s not, and let go of the rest.

I won’t list the secrets to a happier life in this review. You’ll just have to read the book to get that information.

I fully enjoyed reading this well-researched book. And I will most definitely be seeking out more books written by this author.

I highly recommend reading and re-reading this superbly organized and well-written inspirational book.
