‘The best way to know your future is to create it.’
These words of Abraham Lincoln are quoted in career coach and motivational speaker Nirmala Rego’s latest motivational and uplifting book, A Selfie & A Star. The book is an excellent soul curry for a millennial to teach them that if they are in the fake vs. fraud world, they will have to be ‘odd’ to be number 1 in life with good values intact. The author would like millennials to read and reflect on her book, which teaches them in an easy-going language that stars are meant to reflect light, but it is up to one’s inner determination to make them ‘sparkle’.
The book is penned interactively with life coach, Good Nana, and teaches the young to stop living in ‘Selfie Mode’, and aids them in switching to ‘Big Picture Mode’. One can start by knowing that a selfie is limited, but the sky is limitless.
