The author, Marga Macias , uses her past personal failures as a bless in disguise to encourage the readers to fight against the apathy. She suggests us FIVE SECRETS that could harness the greatness we were born with.
- Engage with fearless honestly
- Own your worth
- Create the off-beaten path
- Sink or swim tenacity
- Invest in a mentor
One of the secrets that moves me is to create the off-beaten path. Marga uses a quote from the book “Not Everyone Will Understand Your Journey” to describe the courage and perseverance that everyone needs toward the destination. “One’s unique road to success is often revealed by the lessons learned from failed attempts to navigate without a path.”
The style of this book is simple and elegant. The depiction of misfortune is perceptible but doesn’t deeply overpower my sensibilities. At a first glimpse of the book title, the five secrets sound like a little exaggerated, but in reality the secrets apply to me and don’t overshadow the fundamental principle. Should you feel you have no purpose or meaning in life, you could read this book.
