Review. Are you ready to change your life? Tired of the same old bad habits and pitfalls, but don’t know where to start? Then check out WOW: A Handbook for Living by Zen Ohashi and Zono Kurazono.
WOW is composed of thirty one phrases along with explanatory passages/exercises that enable you to tackle life’s obstacles. Each narrative passage addresses an issue that may be holding you back from living the life of your dreams. For example, the authors convey in a few sentences the difference between “putting up with something” vs. “enduring it” and explain why this distinction is so important. To put up with something is to suppress your own desires and beliefs with no end in sight. To “endure” is to have your own desires, but accept constructive criticism from others with an end in site. According to the authors, “putting up with something” is a negative influence, but to “endure it” may be a good thing. The key is to understand the difference and act accordingly.
The beauty of WOW is its simple, but profound message for change.
