Join me for a conversation that will very likely change how you look at your life. Today, joined by author Eran Dror, author of The Book of Hard Truths.
Today’s discussion guide:
Uncertainty. Vulnerability. Death. Hard truths have a secret power over us. We’d rather ignore them. Like a virus in our mental software, they operate on the seams that bind the rational and the emotional, and that’s where they trap us. By running away we become their slaves. Only by accepting them can we become free. THE BOOK OF HARD TRUTHS helps readers confront these realities of life. It catalogues some of the most universally known but universally resisted hard truths in a fun and engaging format. It features some of the most unpleasant facts of life in a format geared towards systematic review and self-evaluation including:
Nothing is Permanent
You’re Not the Best
The Past is Gone
You’re Not Special
The Future in Uncertain
It’s Up to You
The Present is All You Have
Failure is an Option
You Can’t Do it All
People Can Hurt You
There’s Lots You Don’t Know
These “hard truths” are widely known and explored in religion & spirituality books, self-help books, psychology books, philosophy books, TED talks, etc. As Dror explains, he simply collected them, wrote them out as clearly as he could, and packagec them together in a new and compelling way. “I tried to create an emotional experience with the illustrations and the text, which will linger, “Dror writes. “My hope was that the book will provide a spark, which will get you thinking on your own about the truths you’ve been avoiding in your life”
