Summary

The Sunday Times number one best seller

Jay Shetty, social media superstar and host of the number one podcast ‘On Purpose’, distils the timeless wisdom he learned as a practising monk into practical steps anyone can take every day to live a less anxious, more meaningful life.

Over the past three years, Jay Shetty has become a favourite in the hearts and minds of millions of people worldwide. One of his clips was the most watched video on Facebook last year, with over 360 million views. His social media following totals over 32 million, he has produced over 400 viral videos, which have amassed more than 5 billion views, and his podcast, ‘On Purpose’, is consistently ranked the world’s #1 health-related podcast.

In this inspiring, empowering book, Shetty draws on his time as a monk in the Vedic tradition to show us how we can clear the roadblocks to our potential and power. Drawing on ancient wisdom and his own rich experiences in the ashram, Think Like a Monk reveals how to overcome negative thoughts and habits, and access the calm and purpose that lie within all of us.

The lessons monks learn are profound but often abstract. Shetty transforms them into advice and exercises we can all apply to reduce stress, improve focus, improve relationships, identify our hidden abilities, increase self-discipline and give the gifts we find in ourselves to the world. Shetty proves that everyone can – and should – think like a monk

This book will transform your life!

Simple. Practical. Authentic. This audible version of Jay reading his book can only be described as the best ever narrated by author book on audible i have ever heard Positive, eloquent and high energy from start to finish - i can only describe this to be a 10 hr podcast by Jay that you just don’t want to turn off or even miss a word spoken. Completed this 10 hr narration in a single day - yes. It is THAT good! Ancient wisdom articulated in how to apply in this modern world in a useful and practical way will surely only have one outcome. And that is Jay succeeding in his vision of making wisdom go viral. Jay - when is book #2 coming out!!
