Short Notes on A BLUE BALL and why not to think about it?

Publisher : OM Books International

Rating : 3 / 5

I must confess i am not a great fan of self-help books but still have been reading it over the years in the hope that i will come across some worthy books in this genre. If at all, they do provide a bit of motivation and inspiration in an otherwise routine life.

The author has divided the book into various chapters in such a way that it provides a particular theory, different point of view, examples to illustrate those points and relevant exercises to practically implement those theories. What impressed me the most that the author was not shy in divulging her personal life and most of the pertinent points/examples are actually drawn out from her life, which at times have been difficult and full of hardships.

Malti Bhojwani is the founder of Multi Coaching International, a professional certified life Coach with the International Coach Federation (ICF), NIP practitioner (Neuro Linguistic Programming) and an author. She coaches using her empathetic enquiry that leads her clients to personal empowerment, fulfilled goals and consistent success. Being a life-long learner, she is also mastering Ontological Coaching with Newfield Network to hone her skills, as she still considers herself only a 'white-belter' in the field of personal transformation.

The author says right at the beginning that this book is as light as you think and as deep as it can be. I kinda agree with it. The symbolism of a blue ball can be related to anything negative in life and how we tend to focus more on them and not the positives. The narrative is full of the spirituality shrouded in life and provides utmost satisfaction when you overcome the obstacles. There is a certain calmness in her writing which rubs off on you as a person while reading it.

There are repetitions at various places, more so in explaining the same theory from different angles and could have been shorter by around 40 pages. I found the exercises a bit uninteresting and tend to skip those. In short, if you are looking for a self help book to motivate and just get a kick start again in life, not a bad way to spend time reading this one!
