38 Lessons For Living-
Hard and Gentle Insights to Experience Personal Growth
Written by J.M. Gallego and M.A. Saavedra
Joel Osteen, Dr. Phil, Oprah, and Anthony Robbins: the sphere of self-help books is wide open with many who have offered to be a voice of hope, inspiration and motivation. You’ve heard their words a thousand different ways, sometimes spiritually. Yet, their messages have a common thread: it is all about the individual spirit, the ultimate responsibility to him and what he can achieve.
Enter J.M. Gallego and Manny Saavedra, two well recognized and accomplished martial artists, founders of their respective organizations-Sekai Seito Goju-Ryu Karate-Do Kyokai and Korkusai Koryu Gojukai Karatedo, World Sansei Goju Ryu Karatedo. Their approach to achieving nirvana, success in life and personal growth, is presented in a series of 38 chapters, lessons in life experiences and practical advice.
As the writers affirm, “38 Lessons for Living” is by no means a martial arts book. However, the interesting element of these lessons is that the writers have formulated them from real life experiences (many which they have lived through themselves), and from martial arts principles. Indeed, “38 Lessons for Living” is based on many of Peter Urban Sensei’s philosophies of life, and adapted from his 1997 unpublished, “Chinatown Dojo: The Philosophy and Psychology of Karate Training.” So, while reading, you pick up the essence of “Master Peter Urbanisms” within its’ pages.
“38 Lessons for Living” offers the reader advice through practical wisdom and traditional values in a straightforward approach. It has a personal feel which made it extremely comfortable to read. I recommend this little gem to the young and the old and everyone in between.
