Book 32 of Year 2017 – “The I-Factor” by Van Moody

Official Title – The I Factor: How Building a Great Relationship with Yourself Is the Key to a Happy, Successful Life

Genre – Non Fiction

Book Length – 272 Pages

Reading Time – 6.5 Hours

Style/ Plot – Van writes this book with lots of examples to show the reader how they can introspect, learn about building themselves and ultimately have personal victories through their struggles.

We hear stories about individuals who are usually in the spotlight and are, in our minds, inevitably destined for success.

Out of the blues, they make a fall from grace and we are left wondering how this has happened.

Van suggests that this may be because the world places a higher value of external characteristics, these individuals do not spend the time to take care of their internal selves. Their crash and burn is inevitable.

What about us? How do we take care of inward selves? How do we ensure we don’t fall prey to pressures around us?

I like the way he explains how it is vitally important for the reader to have a relationship with him/herself. Our relationship with ourselves is as vital or even more important than our relationship with others.

How do you relate with yourself?

Favourite Quote – “Here’s my point: the Titanic sank not because the iceberg was in the ocean, but because no one saw it in time to steer clear of it.
