Most people, for a variety of reasons, have been schooled away from listening to their "inner voice," which is there to guide us in the discovery of our inate talents and interests. This is the basis upon which we should be engaging in our "Right Livlihood," a Buddhist term to describe the work that we were destined to do, which is more than just earning a paycheck, but is fulfilling in a Maslow "self-actualization sense," and is in service to humankind.
Ms. Sinetar's masterpiece is written from the perspective of someone who has looked within themselves and has asked themselves the tough questions about the quality of life they are living. She posits that to ignore that inner longing is to basically live in denial, and untrue to yourself. This incongruity, she argues, is the root of a great deal of dissatisfaction that people have with their lives. Hence the admonition, "to thine own self be true," which is the antithesis of the quote from Thoreau.
This book was instrumental for me during a period of major depression that I was experiencing, that I credit it completely in helping me "find my way back," onto my unique path. Space prohibits me from sharing any details, but I will happily correspond anyone who feels that they are in the middle of a midlife, or carerr crisis.
But first, buy this book, heed its admonitions, and prepare for a major change in your life!
This book will help, but by no means should one consider this book or ANY book a "cure all". It will help lead you on to a path to a healthier, independent, and confident life.
As for the title being "misleading": The choice of title is addressed in this book by the author. It is true that the book has no focus whatsoever on directing you to financial happiness. The idea is that by becoming happy with your life choices and your work, the money will eventually follow.
I recommend this book to those that are unhappy with their work, social life, and hobbies. If you are depressed because there is no harmony, and you are looking for the courage to change yourself, then go ahead and read this book.
Why I took off One Star: There are a few spots in the second chapter that I didn't agree with about parents loving their children. However, it's only mentioned in one spot so I recommend just reading over it.
I'm happy to report less than a year later that I make a living in my dream industry. The book is certainly not a magic pill, but it does open your eyes to the necessity of doing what you love and the possibility that it can pay your bills eventually.
