Personal Transformation

An Executive's Story of Struggle and Spiritual Awakening

The story of a wildly successful investment guru who loses his hearing, Kiril Sokoloff's contribution describes the realities and difficulties of becoming deaf and the joy and inspiration that a changed perspective can lend to all situations. 

As the Dalai Lama, a friend of Sokoloff's, says in the prologue to the book, "concern for others and turning adversity to advantage" can be of great benefit to us as individuals and to the world at large. Sokoloff's life is a vital example of this philosophy and the events and reflections collected here witness to his discovery of a profound peace through pain and struggle.

How did he make the transition from negative to positive? Here are some thoughts that Sokoloff shares:

I control my environment to favor my handicap.
I avoid stress where ever and whenever possible.
I surround myself with positive people and loved ones.
I think positive thoughts.
I love life.
I find what I am good at and then do it.
I am incredibly grateful for what I have.

His compassion for himself and others, and his refreshingly candid style, make this book a transformative experience for readers seeking personal growth.
