Who says you can't? You do - by Daniel Chidiac is the ultimate book for personal growth. It is a help book which will aid you in finding clarity in life.

I started reading it back in 2022 during my summer break after which I left it. Maybe at that moment I was not in right mind-set to comprehend it.  So I picked it again after my mid terms and it was definitely a good decision to do so.

Coming to the book, the author possesses a clear and positive understanding of how the world works and the effects that one’s behaviour can have on a person's self-esteem.

 I personally feel that every teenager should read this book once, as we all are at that stage in our lives where every step we take can impact our future. Therefore if we wish to have a clear vision about our goals and ambitions, this books is a must read.

Not going to lie, it is one of my favourite self-help books. Life is full of ups and downs, we all have our low days – when we feel lost and tired.  But I assure you that this book will surely make you notice your self-worth, will urge you to stay positive and to continue to visualize and stay focused on your thoughts. I know that there are a lot of distractions and other work which needs to be done but if you'll just spare a few minutes to read it, it will definitely help you clear your thoughts.

I would like to share the difference and impact it has made in my life. We all know how COVID affected us all, not just physically but mentally too. After the reopening of schools, I was not at all serious, I took most of the things lightly, and I stopped prioritizing my work and was in fun mode all the time. After reading this book, I saw a change in myself and I would give credit to this novel, it acted like an eye opener for me.

Now, every morning I wake up, visualize how the day is going to pan out. No matter what obstacles I'll face - big or small, I know I will get over them and I am full of positive energy. And all these changes in me are all because of this book.
