Come Alive: Live a Life with More Meaning and Joy Kindle Edition
Do you feel trapped in your work and life?
Do you feel empty and unfulfilled?
Do you see happiness as something you will achieve “one day”?
The sad truth is, achieving society’s definition of success – an impressive career, status and wealth – can be a hollow victory.
Yu Dan Shi knows this all too well. A lifetime spent chasing endless goals and the appearance of success came at a huge personal cost: a punishing workload while raising a family, a daily battle devoid of meaning, failing health and misery.
Facing the truth was a painful yet life-changing experience. It had been a long, difficult journey from her underprivileged beginning in remote China. But the void Yu Dan felt at the height of her corporate career was a gift. With a new vision of success and clarity about what truly mattered to her, she transitioned to a path of passion, joy and meaning. Her book will show you how you can do the same.
Change doesn’t have to be daunting. You don’t have to upend your life and throw away everything you have achieved. In this transformative book, Yu Dan explores the conflict faced by the high achievers and guides you through her four proven and research-based principles, giving you the practical steps to make real, sustainable changes to your life.
You can be happy now. You can transform your life. You already have everything you need to get started, right now.
So, are you ready to come alive?

Come Alive, written by Yu Dan Shi, delves straight into the heart of chasing hollow victories for self-validation and the pressures of society on what it deems to be the definition of success. It challenges the thinking around what meaningful goals really are to us as individuals and how to minimise doing the unimportant things we chase for unnecessary glory. I found myself thinking about the priorities that are truly important, something sadly done too little. By the end of the book, I was inspired to deeply consider what brings true joy, passion, and wellbeing into a day, week, month jammed with time spent on far too many other trivial, unimportant things.
Beautifully told, this book merges insights from Yu Dan Shi’s own upbringing and journey through life with transformational tips. A great read for anyone hoping to make the necessary adjustments to achieve a more balanced life.
I kept nodding as I was reading, feeling like I could relate to many of the issues Yu Dan went through herself. I will go back to the practical lessons for sure!

It comes at a time when I questioned my abilities, career, and life path. Now I have renewed courage to forge forward. A different courage - one that is tied to my own ideas of happiness rather than outside forces perceive I should have.
Not too long either, so can digest without struggling.
