Before explaining who, I am, I would like to explain to you why I started writing books.
It all starts with what happened to me some time ago, when I finished my studies, opened my Advertising and Marketing agency and was about to get married.
My obsession was: "I lack nothing and soon I will have a family, I will have children, I will grow old ... is that all?" I was looking for something in my life that was escaping me or that I was goddamn missing, yes… but what?
One day, while I am drinking a coffee at the usual bar, there a stranger a bit elderly, with an unkempt beard and a drink in his hand, begins to talk to me and tell me a lot of things, some nonsense, others that didn't interest me at all, but at some point, among so many things he said, only one word struck me. In truth, he kept talking to me, I nodded but my brain was stuck in that word of only three letters. Something that I had never thought of and that was completely missing in my life but that could be the turning point, that of profound change.
Taken by the enthusiasm, as soon as I arrived at the office, I began to search in Google on that three-letter word because I wanted to know more but, I soon discovered that I was about to enter a world of information, so much that I was confused and misled from obtaining the goal: to understand how that word could really help me achieve what was missing in my life. Tired and disappointed, I fell asleep in front of the computer.
When I woke up, I was assailed by doubts. Is it possible that that word is the turning point in my life? What if I'm wrong? Pursuing useless thoughts was not my style, and thinking about a thousand other failures in the search for "what is missing in my life" certainly did not encourage me to continue. So, I decided to close everything and go home and forget about it. At least I thought.
I didn't sleep a wink that night. I kept thinking and rethinking that word and what I had read about it but without great results. Is it possible that I can't get out of this labyrinth? I'm very close to the solution, why give up right now?
The next day, early in the morning, as was my habit, as I returned from my run in the parks near my house, my eye caught my eye on a leaflet under a leaf. I picked it up; mentioned an African proverb which, more or less, went like this:
"The young man walks faster than the elderly, but the elderly knows the way."
I had a stroke of genius, now I knew exactly what I had to do. With a hurried step I went back to the bar to ask for information about the "old man" who had spoken to me that day. Where could I have found him? While following the information they told me, I searched everywhere, but without success. Finally, some neighbors who knew him by sight, confirmed that he no longer lived there, that he had gone but did not know where. By now I had lost all hope of finding him.
Unexpectedly, two weeks later and by pure coincidence, I saw him sitting on a bench in a park. I went over to ask if he remembered the conversation, he had made to me a few days earlier and if he knew how to give me some more details on that word that had so impressed me. After mumbling about a lot of things, rather confused I would say, as he was about to leave in a hurry, he told me that some time ago he too had read a sentence by Paulo Coelho that had particularly impressed him and that said: "When your legs are tired, walk with your heart. "
Here is the final turning point in my life, what I had been looking for years without succeeding. Now I know why I couldn't find it, I was simply looking for it in the wrong place, when the answer had always been there: “inside my heart”. I just had to dig deeper inside myself and I would have found it. Just think, it was just a three-letter word, and yet, those three letters have radically changed my entire life path for good and forever.
I wish anyone could easily find that word inside their heart, without the ups and downs I had to go through and just like drinking a cup of coffee.
That's why I started writing books, to help you dig into your heart and find the answers you are looking for in the midst of a river of information.
Now I want to reveal my secret because now you can really understand: in the photo you see here…. I am the donkey.
All kidding aside, I'm not a shrink or a communication genius or a super relationship expert, nor a coach even though I've done something like this in the past. But the experiences I acquired, the communication consultancy I was able to manage for some multinationals and, above all, my inner research and the positive transformation of my life, have allowed me to hone many important skills such as dedication to the study of human problems and the identification of solutions.
The primary goal that I have posed to analyze the true values of life based on the context or situations that must be faced, make a careful synthesis of them, transforming them into practical and useful topics. Anyone can benefit from it, either as a strengthening and confirmation of the values already acquired or as a discovery of himself, of his true self or of his identity, the deepest one hidden in his heart that will lead him to the solution of many problems.
By reading my books, I hope you will have more food for thought and a wide range of options to choose from according to your inclinations or needs that you may have at that juncture in your life. All the suggestions proposed have been the subject of scientific research and have made real changes in those who have decided to follow them and implement them.
Of course, they are far from perfect and certainly can be improved despite my efforts, but I am sure that reading them will be a great result for you and putting their suggestions into practice much more than solving problems. In fact, problems come and go and, in any case, sooner or later they end, but the principles you learn will remain forever, for a lifetime engraved in your heart.
They are not treatises on science but they draw inspiration from it to explain how some "ways of thinking" and behaviors or assumptions work better than others in positively changing life.
With the help of technicians and other communication experts, teachers and educators, I finished the "10 Ways of Thinking" series that I invite you to read. Initially choose the ones that are right for you but don't forget the others, you will find thousands of ideas for reflections and original ideas. I am sure that you too will be able to find your own path, the one that will lead you to balance and success in your life.
I wish you well and a good read.
