Your Best Life: Tactics, Tools and Insights to Create a Life of Fulfillment, Joy and Abundance
With Your Best Life: Tactics, Tools and Insights to Create a Life of Fulfillment, Joy and Abundance, Mike X aims to equip readers with everything they need “to make every aspect of [their] life truly extraordinary.” His strategy for doing so is simple but effective, centering on sharing a wealth of stories, ideas, and facts that have been hand-picked due to their potential to prompt readers to rethink their day-to-day mindset and established beliefs and perceptions. In this way, the book delivers on its overall intention to facilitate readers in overcoming anything that may be holding them back and propel them toward living the life they truly desire.
The thirty chapters that comprise Your Best Life are designed to be read in any order, which allows readers to pick and choose the particular subject or subjects of interest to them at a given time. The chapters are also fairly short, meaning that the majority can be read in around ten minutes, which means that pretty much everyone can fit in reading one or more at some point during their day. Saying that, the book’s brevity certainly isn’t indicative of any lack of substance, covering as it does weighty subjects ranging from opportunity in adversity to the law of attraction, the importance of gratitude to ways to overcome procrastination, and means of finding purpose to the reality of dopamine.
As Mike X himself highlights, Your Best Life has three key points of differentiation from the traditional self-help book, which together combine to render it more appealing and more effective than many other works in the genre. First, rather than focusing on a particular issue that readers might want to address or overcome, the book covers a broad range of things that might be holding people back in life. This breadth of coverage means that the book contains material likely to appeal to all readers, even if not every reader will require or appreciate every issue covered, and provides a valuable foundation for further study where required.
Second, rather than being offputtingly text-heavy, the book contains numerous images and illustrations that reinforce the ideas and messages being conveyed and also open up the content to those who are visual learners but who may become lost or disinterested when having to wade through page after page of uninterrupted text. Third, rather than attempting to adopt a scientific or philosophical tone in the same way that many self-help writers do, Mike X writes in a conversational and friendly style that draws readers in and emphasizes the straightforward applicability of his ideas and techniques.
Your Best Life presents myriad ways in which readers looking to expand their thoughts and experiences can make effective changes to their life while also highlighting the potential dangers of focusing too much on productivity, busyness, and achievement. The key to living a happy and fulfilling life is striking a balance between wants, needs, and obligations, and Mike X provides a raft of tools that will help readers do just that.
