Review this product
Top international reviews
It touches on themes of leadership, inner strength, relates to challenges and provides a guiding light on how to cut through it all and come out a victor. I thought that I would read through it much before year's end... but the book itself seems to say, "why rush it? Let me be your daily companion," and so it is. I cannot think of a single demographic, age or socioeconomic status of person that wouldn't benefit greatly from keeping this year-long companion.
Many blessings to you Orly Wahba, may God continue to bless and greatly prosper your work... the mission of taking genuine kindness and clemency all over the globe.
- Luis Herrera, author and philosopher
I've the conviction that the application of ' that ' spiritual principles, but explained in a ' this ' conductual psychological science -like strategies, will profoundly enhance our lives and our ways for better communication.
What is the principal step necessary to do bycatch previous objectives? Be honest and find any way to be conscious that we need be conscious all the time about the way we communicate everything to everyone.
It's not easy, because we may already be aware of the paradigm shift that is going on in the science of kindness -a real and complete science.
Orly Wahba in this book offer us a way to bring us, everyday a way of remain conscious with an Act, a Quote and Reflection, as mind attitude to keep all the day with us...
In this new paradigm, your consciousness is the ground of being.
Then you become a fundamental stone of kindness volunteer, like millions around the world, feeling peaceful while you are working for a better world.
In this January, Saturday 7, really thanks Amazon.com, for leave us space to express gratitude toward authors of books, by the footprint they leave.
In this January, Saturday 7, really thanks Orly Wahba & Life Vest Inside family around the world.
