Description

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

When you think like a monk, you’ll understand: 

  • How to overcome negativity
  • How to stop overthinking 
  • Why comparison kills love 
  • How to use your fear 
  • Why you can’t find happiness by looking for it 
  • How to learn from everyone you meet 
  • Why you are not your thoughts 
  • How to find your purpose 
  • Why kindness is crucial to success 
  • And much more

Shetty grew up in a family where you could become one of three things - a doctor, a lawyer, or a failure. His family was convinced he had chosen option three: Instead of attending his college graduation ceremony, he headed to India to become a monk, to meditate every day for four to eight hours, and devote his life to helping others. 

After three years, one of his teachers told him that he would have more impact on the world if he left the monk’s path to share his experience and wisdom with others. Heavily in debt, and with no recognizable skills on his résumé, he moved back home in North London with his parents. Shetty reconnected with old school friends - many working for some of the world’s largest corporations - who were experiencing tremendous stress, pressure, and unhappiness, and they invited Shetty to coach them on well-being, purpose, and mindfulness. 

Since then, Shetty has become one of the world’s most popular influencers. In 2017, he was named in the Forbes magazine 30-under-30 for being a game-changer in the world of media. In 2018, he had the number one video on Facebook with more than 360 million views. His social media following totals more than 38 million, he has produced more than 400 viral videos that have amassed more than eight billion views, and his podcast, On Purpose, is consistently ranked the world’s number one health and wellness podcast.  

In this inspiring, empowering book, Shetty draws on his time as a monk to show us how we can clear the roadblocks to our potential and power. Combining 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. He transforms abstract lessons into advice and exercises we can all apply to reduce stress, improve relationships, and give the gifts we find in ourselves to the world. Shetty proves that everyone can - and should - think like a monk.

i couldn't stop listening

I love Jay to begin with. But this book summarizes how we can achieve eternal happiness. It made me cry. Made me realize how I am more negative than positive, I am mean than kind. It made me feel bad to be honest but also made me more aware of my actions and words. That I can exude positivity. I can be more grateful. Thank you Jay for laying it all out.

It is ok

The Audiobook is stretched beyond the content it contains. A little too abstract for my liking. Would have been easier to follow if it was more concise and practical.

Well written book but some home truths must notice

Books is well written and easy to listen. But problem is the ideology author trying to adulate. Author quoting many times and glorifying Manusmriti which is infamous for its misogyny stands and derogatory position of woman and glorifying four varnas – which is the caste system categorizing Hindus and forced to labor based on caste you are born in and practicing untouchability same like racism. Apparently author tried to implement Varna Characteristics as personality test, the underlying principle is the same; Guide (Brahmin – you are top of the hierarchy and just guide Kshtriya and do rituals), Leader (Kshtriya – Born to Lead), Creator (Vaishyas to do Trading) and Maker (Shudras the untouchables - to do all dirty works and server above 3 Castes). Even though author reiterated he’s not endorsing caste system, somehow, he’s glorifying the same which is underlying in the Indian Hindu community!

Captivating from the start

Within the first few sentences of this book I was intrigued and excited to learn more. I have been following Jay for over a year and his book is as eloquently written as I expected it to be. I’m excited to delve deeper in this teaching and learn some of the practices in the text!

A book to live by

Just that ONE book humanity needs in 2020. Every sentence has a wisdom, so many applicable actionable steps in the book. This is not an ordinary inspirational or motivational self-help book, instead it is a book that will force us to take the action. I would highly recommend to invest in this book. I am loving some beautiful wisdom full stories of Jay’s monk life. Thank you for writing this beautiful book Jay!

Interesting concept with good execution

What caught my eye about this one was its unique subject matter — applying monk-like principles to the ups and downs of everyday life. Though I’m sure someone’s written a book like this one in the past, I’ve never read such a work myself. This is both what I think helps this one stand out and what makes it an interesting read once you pick it up. It’s chock-full of ancient wisdom. It discusses everything from the true laws of happiness to the notion that life is ever-changing to the fact that contentment is an inside job — not an external one. Underlying all of these notions, as well as the theme of the book itself, is the idea that the happiest people on earth are monks, and, as such, we should learn from the actions and habits of such people in order to become happier ourselves. Though the content is fairly straightforward for most of the book, it’s the packaging of it that I think helps make this book a winner. Shetty is wise and tactful in his approach, and it makes for a well-crafted narrative in the end. Will it change your life? I’m not totally sure. But it'll definitely be a good refresher course, at the very least. -Brian Sachetta Author of “Get Out of Your Head”

A must read!

I absolutely loved this book. It's like having a conversation with Jay. At times you laugh and cry at the same time. Each chapter is replete with stories and easy to use exercises that you can implement right away into your life. It's by no means easy, but it's worth it.
