Do you regret not recognizing your limitations that one time when you should have? Don’t you wish you knew how to make the right decision at the right time? If only we were born with a manual, life would have been less hurtful, less painful, and less scary. Life goals would have been clear and precise. We wouldn’t have floundered deciphering basic human emotions as we do now. Every word would mean the same for everyone. If only... Gurudev Sri Sri Ravi Shankar is well aware of the stress the technology-driven life is gifting humanity. He knows the effort that people are putting in to keep their self-confidence afloat, to think positively, to be healthy, enthusiastic and generous. His aim of creating a violence-free society, a confusion-free mind, and a sorrow-free soul prompted him to put together this practical guide to putting the zing back in life.
