Zero to One By Peter Thiel

I have always been fascinated by entrepreneurs. Brave men or women who believe so much in their ideas that they are willing to put it all on the line to pursue them! People who aren’t afraid of hard work, long hours, and uncertainty.

This week I read ‘Zero to One’ by Peter Thiel. The book has the subtitle ‘How to build the future’ and is, in its essence, a roadmap for entrepreneurs and start-ups.

The book’s essential purpose is to rewire how we think about innovation. See, according to Thiel, most modern companies aren’t innovating at all but simply making incremental improvements to already existing concepts or products – or in the words of Thiel: ‘they move from ‘1 to N’.  But according to him, innovation’s true meaning – and value – is creating and doing something totally new – aka moving from ‘Zero to 1.’

We hope you will enjoy our animated summary of the book; you can watch it here:

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.

You are the Placebo By Joe Dispenza

You have probably heard of the placebo effect, when a neutral substance changes your body just because you believe it can! But did you know that you can be your own placebo?

In his famous book ‘You are the placebo,’ Dr. Joe Dispenza asserts that it is, in fact, possible to heal yourself by thought alone.

Fundamentally the book asks the question: “Is it possible to replicate the principles of the placebo effect and produce significant changes in your personal health solely through methodical focus and deliberate intention?”

Spoiler alert – according to Joe Dispenza, it is most certainly possible and he is happy to share how!!

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