Your thoughts form a voice in your head, constantly jabbering on about whatever is going on in life. Yet you are not this voice – you are the one who hears the voice. Your mind creates false mental constructs, and it creates blockages that clog up your energy channels when you repress your emotions or avoid situations. This book will teach you what ”you” truly are, will show you how to face all pain head-on instead of skirting around it, and will teach you how to rise up to higher levels of consciousness.
“If you are in there experiencing the peace that occurs when your thoughts stop, then obviously your existence is not dependent upon the act of thinking.”
Meditation is daunting, right? It’s boring and only for monks, right? This book brings the practice of meditation to anybody, no matter where they are on their journey. It describes specific techniques, benefits, and how you should properly play with your mind. Meditation is noticing all sensations (thoughts, feelings, experiences, memories, plans, hopes, desires, etc.) as temporary. You will learn to separate yourself from temporary sensations and be an objective observer of raw reality, no longer at the whim of its ebbs & flows.

In the modern marketing landscape, entitled consumers demand more attention and transparency than ever before from companies. Now that people are becoming aware of the vast amounts of data these companies are gathering on them, consumers are starting to demand that it be used effectively to make their experiences better and easier. The more entitled the consumer, the more they expect. Any reasonable amount of wiggle room for mistakes is slimming quickly; consumers are happy to run to the nearest competitor for a better customer experience. The only way to compete in the modern times of ever-changing opinions and social media “cancel culture” (campaigns to boycott brands) is to adopt a consumer-first marketing strategy.
“Today’s consumers are like the best coaches – they’re not interested in your excuses. And like the best coaches, if you don’t improve, they’ll replace you.”
