Introduction

The purpose of writing this book is to create a manual for those who are looking forward to a resource to transform themselves. Most of the time we know about the right actions but we are so hard pressed with time that initiation is not taken. The power to create that meaningful change is inside all of us and we need a tender support and guidance to have meaningful and prosperous life. This resource would help all those who are seeking this transformation and desire to have a lasting positive change in life. This is a journey of 52 weeks, which is exactly one year. We will take each step every weekend, understand the concept for the week and identify the ways to implement it in your life.

  • 7. Introduction The purpose of writing this book is to create a manual for those who are lookingforward to a resource to transform themselves. Most of the time we know about theright actions but we are so hard pressed with time that initiation is not taken. Thepower to create that meaningful change is inside all of us and we need a tendersupport and guidance to have meaningful and prosperous life. This resource wouldhelp all those who are seeking this transformation and desire to have a lasting positivechange in life. The process of true transformation is gradual and slow, it cannot be doneinstantly. Any immediate change cannot be true and durable. Transformation is not aone-step process but a series of steps understood and experienced within a propertime frame. The way of implementing these transformative ideas would be different foreach individual and can only be understood and designed with experience. Readingcan only help you to appreciate it but to bring an enduring positive change you needto execute and experience its power in your life. Real change would come from theoutput you will get by the end of each week. All ideas presented in this work will not have equal effect on all readers; someideas may work well on some individuals in comparison to others, certain ideas maynot be applicable for few readers who may redesign it in their own context. Acomplete sincerity towards this transformation process would be the most importanttool to gain the true benefits of this journey. By taking it casually you would onlyimprove your knowledge about the success principles of your life, which if shared,could improve the life of someone else. This is not a magic pill which can make youa star in a day or even in a month, rather it is a gradual process to take thecomplete control of your life by making small positive changes every week and createa complete new you.
  • 8. This is a journey of 52 weeks, which is exactly one year. We will take each stepevery weekend, understand the concept for the week and identify the ways toimplement it in your life. You will implement the idea for the whole week i.e. Mondayto Saturday (Week 1) and move on to the next idea again on Sunday and implementit on Week 2. It will not affect your daily life but will give you a strong but simple toolto excel your life both at work and in personal life. Once you complete a week youwill be able to understand the concept in proper way and even experience it. Youwould be able to find ideas to integrate it in your life. It would be helpful if you couldkeep reminding yourself, regularly, about all the learning of previous weeks for each ofremaining weeks. All 52 steps are designed in such a way that it would gel easilywith your life, body, mind, emotions and soul. It would be great if you can givecomplete sincerity to these steps without any break as each would give strength toother. It is like a medicine course which would be effective if done according toprescription plan. The ideas are simple and most of them would be known to readers, but somehowthey were not implemented in their life for one reason or other. Readers canimplement it according to the ways specified in the book or design their own methods,the purpose is to experience the power of the idea and try to make it a part of yourlife. All these ideas would cover almost every aspect in your life and would be enoughto transform your life to give you more happiness, satisfaction, success and prosperity. It is suggested that you should ease the intensity of implementation of an idea oraltogether drop that particular method, if you feel uncomfortable in execution. You cancome back to it later. The objective is to add value in your life not to make youuncomfortable.
  • 9. WEEK ONE - Learn to say ‘No’ ‘No’ is one of the mantra for clarity and happiness. Many times we get engagedwith those tasks and actions which should have never been started, which lead topain, suffering and failure. This happens when we are not clear about ourselves, hashesitation, shyness or hitch. If we could learn to say ‘No’ to things which we do notwant to do, that would save us from unnecessary suffering. ‘No’ should be a clear anddecent rejection of unwanted offer, proposal or idea proposed to you. This does notmean to insult, appall or harm the other person, but plainly refusing your involvementin the task. This also does not mean to say ‘No’ to anything & everything and becomea ‘no person’, but to be clear about the things which emotionally and logically do notsuit you and would give you pain and discomfort. There are several nice ways to say no. People sometimes use humor to rejectsomething or cite some simple reasons for non-involvement or simply but firmly saying‘No’ with a smiling face. It would be great to have more clarity and self-belief in life to be a person withfirm decisions.Action Step This week, learn to say ‘No’. Commit not to take any task or do anything whichwill bother you or put you at discomfort. Be very clear about the things which youwould never do and would be refused. Write them down now.
  • 10. WEEK TWO - Look in the eye of your fears Every human being has fears, which resist them to do certain tasks. Fears givepain, therefore, we refuse to face them or even think about them. With time, thesefears get more and more strength and their interference in our life increases. They willnot go until faced and killed. If you face your fears, it would weaken their intensityand ultimately eliminate them from your life. This does not mean to do any illogical,illegal or immoral tasks, like if someone is afraid of water then she should not jumpinto deep water without learning swimming or if someone is afraid of snakes she goesto jungle and catch a poisonous snake without precautions. You need to prepareyourself to face your fears. If done the right way this fear will vanish from your life. Ifyou are afraid of public speaking then you must practice well and find smalleropportunities to present and improve then move on to bigger challenges. Facing the fear makes our heart beat faster making uncomfortable. This is also anice way to know about your fears, anything giving you unease maybe one of yourfear. You can eliminate your fear by taking it head-on with thorough preparation. If youhave fear of driving, then learn it well from an expert and drive on crowded roads,daily. Fears are the major obstacle to happiness and fulfillment in our lives, more theylose strength happier we become. This would be clearly visible to you by the end ofthe week.Action Step This week we will face two of our fears. Identify two of them, maybe small ones,and write them down. Plan for the steps to be taken to face them safely, take supportof an expert or a trusted person. Dedicate half week to face each fear, soon theywould lose their strength.
