Search Inside Yourself by Chade-Meng Tan

"What lies behind us and what lies ahead us are tiny matters to what lies within us." ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

This is the book, Search Inside Yourself, that someone who is very kind-hearted presented me as my birthday gift and at the same time, it inspired me to re-design my motto as; Search Inside Myself. I was brightened on my bright birthday by these two things; The book and my motto. Besides, wishes from my benign friends didn't fail to thrill me.

Sometimes, it is all-important to direct the searchlight, spotlight inwards as said by Mahatma Gandhi and search inside ourselves, I continue. We got to search what daily we are and what really we can do apart from driving this prized gift in habitual journey. We know about the distant stars and farthest sea. We know about the tiniest atom and itsy-bitsy cell. But the real question is, do we really know who we are and what we can do? If we happen to ask the aforementioned question to all, amplitude of us will have vague answers. Therefore, it is utmost importance for all of us to know who daily we are and what really we can do, for we are happily here to exercise this once-in-a-lifetime gifts.

For that reason, to tame and train our own miraculous mind must be a grand overarching strategy that all of us must deploy.
