    Description

    Jay Shetty, social media superstar and host of the number one podcast On Purpose, distills the timeless wisdom he learned as a monk into practical steps anyone can take every day to live a less anxious, more meaningful life.

    When you think like a monk, you’ll understand: 

    • How to overcome negativity
    • How to stop overthinking 
    • Why comparison kills love 
    • How to use your fear 
    • Why you can’t find happiness by looking for it 
    • How to learn from everyone you meet 
    • Why you are not your thoughts 
    • How to find your purpose 
    • Why kindness is crucial to success 
    • And much more

    Shetty grew up in a family where you could become one of three things - a doctor, a lawyer, or a failure. His family was convinced he had chosen option three: Instead of attending his college graduation ceremony, he headed to India to become a monk, to meditate every day for four to eight hours, and devote his life to helping others. 

    After three years, one of his teachers told him that he would have more impact on the world if he left the monk’s path to share his experience and wisdom with others. Heavily in debt, and with no recognizable skills on his résumé, he moved back home in North London with his parents. Shetty reconnected with old school friends - many working for some of the world’s largest corporations - who were experiencing tremendous stress, pressure, and unhappiness, and they invited Shetty to coach them on well-being, purpose, and mindfulness. 

    Since then, Shetty has become one of the world’s most popular influencers. In 2017, he was named in the Forbes magazine 30-under-30 for being a game-changer in the world of media. In 2018, he had the number one video on Facebook with more than 360 million views. His social media following totals more than 38 million, he has produced more than 400 viral videos that have amassed more than eight billion views, and his podcast, On Purpose, is consistently ranked the world’s number one health and wellness podcast.  

    In this inspiring, empowering book, Shetty draws on his time as a monk to show us how we can clear the roadblocks to our potential and power. Combining ancient wisdom and his own rich experiences in the ashram, Think Like a Monk reveals how to overcome negative thoughts and habits and access the calm and purpose that lie within all of us. He transforms abstract lessons into advice and exercises we can all apply to reduce stress, improve relationships, and give the gifts we find in ourselves to the world. Shetty proves that everyone can - and should - think like a monk.

    PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the a.ccompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

    Well written book but some home truths must notice

    Books is well written and easy to listen.

    But problem is the ideology author trying to adulate. Author quoting many times and glorifying Manusmriti which is infamous for its misogyny stands and derogatory position of woman and glorifying four varnas – which is the caste system categorizing Hindus and forced to labor based on caste you are born in and practicing untouchability same like racism. Apparently author tried to implement Varna Characteristics as personality test, the underlying principle is the same; Guide (Brahmin – you are top of the hierarchy and just guide Kshtriya and do rituals), Leader (Kshtriya – Born to Lead), Creator (Vaishyas to do Trading) and Maker (Shudras the untouchables - to do all dirty works and server above 3 Castes). Even though author reiterated he’s not endorsing caste system, somehow, he’s glorifying the same which is underlying in the Indian Hindu community!

    This book shouldn't be on Audible

    I wanted to give this book 4 stars at first. Then I saw multiple videos explaining Jay Shetty using other people's words as his own. Literally quoting a lot of people word for word and put his name beneath it. While he attributes a lot of quotes to the right people in this book a lot of it isn't attributed at all. Sadly one of the things he mentions is that it's better to be an imperfect version of yourself than a perfect version of someone else. During the listen I had moments like "I heard this before" and I was correct. It wouldn't even be bad if 90% of the book was cited (correctly) and Shetty hadn't tell a story himself. It still would be valuable. A nice collection of wisdom so to say. However this is not. I think Shetty should feel really bad. I can imagine people feeling at a spiritual low want to listen to this and feeling worse after coming to the conclusion that a book about authenticity (among other things) is itself a fraud. Both audible and the publisher should remove this book and make a statement about it. Note: One of the people exposing Jay Shetty is Nicole Arbour. She uses screenshots and videos of Shetty repeating other people's words as his own. YouTube video: The Jay Shetty Scam - Exposed by Nicole Arbour

    Captivating from the start

    Within the first few sentences of this book I was intrigued and excited to learn more. I have been following Jay for over a year and his book is as eloquently written as I expected it to be. I’m excited to delve deeper in this teaching and learn some of the practices in the text!

    A book to live by

    Just that ONE book humanity needs in 2020. Every sentence has a wisdom, so many applicable actionable steps in the book. This is not an ordinary inspirational or motivational self-help book, instead it is a book that will force us to take the action. I would highly recommend to invest in this book. I am loving some beautiful wisdom full stories of Jay’s monk life. Thank you for writing this beautiful book Jay!

    An Enthralling reading Journey 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

    I downloaded my Audiobook this morning and have listened to 4 chapters so far. This book is filled with incredible story of Jay’s journey along with Practical and Super Actionable daily habits and reflection exercises that we can work through in between the chapters!

    Already loving the book and can’t wait to dig more deeper 🤯💖🌟.

    Interesting concept with good execution

    What caught my eye about this one was its unique subject matter — applying monk-like principles to the ups and downs of everyday life. Though I’m sure someone’s written a book like this one in the past, I’ve never read such a work myself. This is both what I think helps this one stand out and what makes it an interesting read once you pick it up.

    It’s chock-full of ancient wisdom. It discusses everything from the true laws of happiness to the notion that life is ever-changing to the fact that contentment is an inside job — not an external one. Underlying all of these notions, as well as the theme of the book itself, is the idea that the happiest people on earth are monks, and, as such, we should learn from the actions and habits of such people in order to become happier ourselves.

    Though the content is fairly straightforward for most of the book, it’s the packaging of it that I think helps make this book a winner. Shetty is wise and tactful in his approach, and it makes for a well-crafted narrative in the end. Will it change your life? I’m not totally sure. But it'll definitely be a good refresher course, at the very least.

    I LOVED IT! by far my favorite "self help" book.
    Jay Shetty is on my top list of inspirational authors and speakers. Please please please give it a read/listen. His podcast is also full of wisdom.
    Thanks, Jay!

    I will re-listen, that's sure!

    Jay's very engaging, warm and energetic voice with its calming energy (funny combo), his compelling life story and so many wise quotes I'm always trying to catch and write down... Of the 100s books on self-development I had (tried) to read/finish/apply, this one is definitely at the top! i am not sure though if I'd like the written book as much as the audio book because I love hearing his voice! Moreover, his guided meditations are top

    P.S: From the end of the book:
    Write down:
    - everything you've been chasing in your life
    - where does this comes from (family, culture, your inner mission...)
    - whether you still want to chase each of these dreams.

    Shift your monkey mind to a monk mind

    A joyful well structured ride with the author himself diving into his own experience of a monk's life. Transformation starts by being true to yourself and continues with taking action daily from now until last. With traditional wisdoms fit into modern day life Jay brings light on the nature of our minds, emotions and habits. His talent for wording and phrasing as well as the conclusions he draws from his realizations are contagious and easy to follow along. On top of revealing his insights he offers a comprehensive manual of small routines to practice finding and living our dharma.

    p.s. for my taste the reading could be a little slower since the content often takes time to grasp and reflect. I guess just like reading a paper book pausing and rewinding is the natural and sometimes necessary thing to do here ;)

    I listened to this book twice and cant get enough of it and its not the last time. At first I though to by this book in paper form, but then I thought no an audio book would be better bcs I love the voice of jay shetty. He really speaks to my core and motivates me, so when I saw that he is actually reading it, my decision was clear and i dont regret it, best decision ever. ♡

    you need to Listen to this book.

    I'm German and had no problems to listen to Jay's beautiful voice. He read slowly and really clear. His book is a good choice to listen to, if you are unhappy with yourself. If you are struggling with depression or others. Jay's book helped me a lot the last couple of days and I definitely will listen to it twice or more.

    Worth a read - not a listen

    Inspiriational and easy to grasp insights. However, the author's voice make it extremely hard to follow. Every single word is over-accentuated, which interupts the flow and makes it tough to focus.
