Super Life By Darin Olien

There are many advantages of having a mom who is a professional Youtuber/Housewife. I am almost always home for cooking and driving purposes (teenage boys are always hungry and equally often need a lift …), and even though they are big and can handle themselves, I sense that they still appreciate me being here when they are sick or sad or happy 😊 Also having read more than 140 books on Self-Development, parenting, communication, interpersonal relationship, etc. the last few years gives me a good starting point for awesome mom-hood (most of the time 😉).

One of the disadvantages is that every week when I read a new book, they become guinea pigs for whatever new ‘fab’, leadership style, or communication skills I just have learned. Which sometimes drives them crazy.

This week I read ‘Super Life’ by Darin Olien – a super inspiring book that immediately made me want to eat healthier… Raw broccoli, spinach, and quinoa are now a daily part of my diet and, as you may have guessed, also on the menu for the boys!!

Luckily, they seem actually to be enjoying it, and hopefully, we will all live longer and healthier lives because of it!!

‘Super Life’ puts forward the simple but radical theory that you can fundamentally improve your physical and mental health simply by utilizing five life forces: Quality Nutrition, Hydration, Oxygenation, Alkalization, And Detoxification.

Together, these five life forces provide us with an entirely new way of thinking about health and well-being.

If you, too, are interested in joining the ‘broccoli cult’ 😉 or just feel curious about what Darin Olien has to say, you can start by watching our animated summary of the book.

Courage is calling By Ryan Holiday

The brave don’t despair. They believe. They are not cynical; they care. They think there is stuff worth dying for – that good and evil exist. They know that life has problems but would rather be part of the solution than a bystander.

Ryan Holiday

This quote comes from the highly motivational book ‘Courage is calling’ by Ryan Holiday. The book explores the idea of bravery and discloses the power of displaying courage. Through inspirational stories and anecdotes about historical and contemporary leaders, Holiday:

– Defines the characteristics of courage,

– Teaches us how to conquer fear,

– And guides us in becoming more courageous (one small step at a time).

 A crucial premise is that we live in a world where fear runs rampant! Where people: 

– Stand on the sidelines instead of speaking out against injustice,

– Go blindly along with convention instead of forming their own opinions

– And turn a blind eye to the ugly realities of modern life!

And because of this, we need courage more than ever. We need the courage of whistleblowers and risk-takers. We need the courage of activists and adventurers. We need the courage of writers who speak the truth—and the courage of leaders to listen.

By the way, as I was writing this blog post, I realized that this is the 4th book by Ryan Holiday that I have summarized this year. I guess I must really like his work; I hope you will enjoy the summary as well 😊 You can watch it here:

Man’s Search For Meaning By Viktor Frankl

“Everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of the human freedoms. To choose one’s attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one’s own way.”

(Viktor E Frankl – Man’s search for Meaning)

This week I re-read Man’s search for meaning by Viktor Frankl. A book close to my heart since it in many ways inspired me to start BigIdeasGrowingMinds.

The book is divided into two parts. Part one; chronicles Frankl’s experiences as a concentration camp inmate during World War II, and part two describes the psychotherapeutic method he developed after the war called Logotherapy.

Logotherapy guides patients to find purpose and meaning in their lives. It builds on the premise that what provides meaning differs from person to person, so each must choose their own path.

“Everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of the human freedoms. To choose one’s attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one’s own way.”

If you have not yet read ‘Man’s search for meaning’ I highly recommend reading the whole book, but should you find yourself short on time, you can start by watching our animated summary 😊

‘Reimagining Capitalism’ By Rebecca Henderson

Free market capitalism is one of humanity’s greatest inventions and the greatest source of prosperity the world has ever seen. But this success has been costly. Capitalism is on the verge of destroying the planet and destabilizing society as wealth rushes to the top. The time for action is running short.

This week I read an inspirational book by Rebecca Henderson called ‘Reimagining Capitalism’. The book has the tagline ‘in a world on fire’ and is, in its essence, a guide on how capitalism can help save itself – and the world!

According to Henderson, Reimagining capitalism requires five key actions:

#1 – Creating shared value

#2 – Building the purpose-driven organization

#3 – Re-wiring the financial system

#4 – Building co-operation

#5 Re-Building our institutions and fixing government

None adequate on its own, but each building on the other as a vital part of a reinforced whole.

‘The Obstacle is the way’ by Ryan Holiday.

Ponder this! This thing in front of you. This issue. This obstacle – this frustration, unfortunate, problematic, unexpected problem preventing you from doing what you want to do. That thing you dread or secretly hope will never happen. What if it wasn’t so bad?

This week I read a very inspiring book called ‘The Obstacle is the way’ by Ryan Holiday.

The book teaches us that contrary to popular belief, the obstacles we will inevitably face throughout life should not be seen as mere annoyances or unavoidable irritations but instead as opportunities!! Opportunities to practise virtue, patience, courage, humility, resourcefulness, and creativity. Holiday goes on and argues that obstacles are the driving force of every self-made man and woman across the world – be it on the battlefield or in the boardrooms, across oceans and centuries!

We hope you will enjoy our animated summary, where we will walk you through the essential points conveyed in the book.
