That Little Voice in Your Head by Mo Gawdat review – Green Life In Dublin reads
Welcome back! And welcome if You are new here xoxo
How are all of You, I hope You are all doing well? Today is time for a book review as part of Green Life In Dublin reads. I feel like everyone has to know about this book, whether You like reading or not.
Reading is one of my favourite things to do. Some books leave more of a lasting impressions than others and this is one of those books. I must confess I didn’t know about the author before, but I knew I need to research him and his possible other books after reading first twenty pages. This book had me crying, laughing, thinking and all took me on a journey.
Mo Gawdat is a serial entrepreneur, the former chief business officer of Google [X] and author of Solve for Happy, Scary Smart, and now That Little Voice in Your Head. Mo has cofounded more than 20 businesses in fields such as health and fitness, food and beverage and real estate. He served as a board member in several technology, health and fitness and consumer goods companies as well as several government technology and innovation boards in the Middle East and Eastern Europe. He mentors tens of start-ups at any point in time. Outside of work, when he’s not writing or reading up on business and the latest technology innovations and trends, Mo spends his time drawing charcoal portraits, creating mosaics, carpentry and indulging in his passion for restoration of classic cars. Oh, and he has a podcast too.
This book was inspired by his late son, something moved me deeply at the very start of the book – I know how crushing and soul destroying it can be, so I can only admire the fact he took it as an inspiration to make other people happy. In fact, his mission is One Billion Happy. This book is part of that plan. In it You and me are given tools to train Your brain towards happy You. This book provides readers with exercises to help reshape their mental processes. Drawing on his expertise in programming, his extensive study of neuroscience and of different spiritual teachings, Mo explains how – despite their incredible complexity – our brains behave in ways that are largely predictable. Mo reveals how by beating negative self-talk, we can change our thought processes, turning our greed into generosity, our apathy into compassion and investing in our own happiness.
It is definitely no woo woo book, it will blow Your mind multiple time, I can promise You that. I have read dozens upon dozens self/ help self/development books in my time and I can honestly say this is better than most of them.
