Awareness Builder 101The unedited version
by Alex Verlek
Awareness Builder 101 was written to leave you with more questions than answers. Each of 52 reflections is an invitation to start thinking what that topic means to you. Read it, reflect on it, struggle with it, be annoyed by it, love it, talk with each other about it, take the words out for a walk; it’s all fine. The book comes to life when you find your meaning for the words in it. When you become aware what your perspective on this topic is and make conscious choices from there. Since it’s your life!
As a reader, I normally wrap-up a book very quickly. I believe it is the first time in my life I have taken the time to read a book at a slower pace. Every question was, in a good sense, a slap on my face. At the end of every chapter, I found myself with an internal conversation thinking about my life, my dreams, how to see the same situation through a different lens.
I was unable to rush to the next page, as I used to. I felt the need to answer first to Alex. More to the point, I owed an answer to myself.
The title of the book 'Awareness Builder 101' has reached its goal in my case.
I am totally moved by the sincerity, transparency and vulnerability that Alex has shown in ' Awareness Builder 101'.
Do I recommend this book? Absolutely not if you think your life has been designed already. If you think it is a waste of time to change anything. This book is for you even when you are happy with yourself. You will see that there are much more of yourself that you will discover.
Thank you Alex, for sharing your wisdom.
