  30. Raj says:

    Robin Sharma’s books contain wisdom of sage and practical man. Though he suggests planning, he does not deny the truth of this moment.

  31. Raj says:

    Robin Sharma is an interesting writer. Some years ago, this man read one of his books ,while travelling in a train to the south of India. ‘The Monk….’ The direct style and the inspirational quality of the content were appealing. The protagonist’s climbs on the ladder of life and his bathetic fall and the quest for meanhng were presented adorably. In a row, I read three of his books. They all proclaimed good visions of change. Further, one thing Mr.Sharma carried with other writers of his class was the emphasis on affirmations. Is it not in a way creating one more pseudo reality instead of facing reality right now? This writer would be happy to hear his opinion on this, in the broad spectrum of life. Thank you.

  44. Nikhita says:

    Hello sir!
    You are a great leader giving your best efforts to bring change in many lives.Calling you an ‘Achiever’ would an understatement, as there are generations of people who got drastic change in their lives because of your good books.My Dad is one of them and he passed on your book “The Monk who sold the Ferrari” to us(me and my brother).Your book is the reason for inculcating Optimism in our family and switch to better way of living and understanding each other.Hats Off to your Masterpieces.I am feeling grateful to express this to you.

  45. Suresh patel says:

    Hello Robin
    I like most of your ideas and you can rally inspire people but you seem to be against selfishness. What’s wrong with rational self interest? I believe in rational self interest which is my idea of selfishness.

  46. Thanks much for your inspiration, Robin! I think you are awesome and one of the best examples of a true and inspiring leader…with no title :) Please keep inspiring all of us, so we can spread more light in the world together!
