50 Ways to Yay!
by Alex Panos
Publisher: North Star Way
Effervescent TV host, model, and inspirational vlogger Alexi Panos has helped thousands with their own search for personal happiness. In 50 Ways to Yay!, Alexi, recently named one of eleven Noteworthy Millenials in the Huffington Post, helps you do the same with fifty inspired and thought-provoking lessons and exercises to help you break out of the ordinary and jump into the extraordinary.
Is it possible to be a master of your reality? Be happy, and create an epic life despite your circumstances? Hell yes! And we’re just getting started. That’s the mantra Alexi Panos lives by in 50 Ways to Yay! But Alexi wasn’t always this positive. About six years ago, she woke up to the slow monotony that had become her life. Sick of feeling stressed out, emotionally detached, and never quite happy enough, she knew something had to change.
So Alexi immersed herself in psychology, Eastern thought, and personal development by reading thousands of books, taking classes, and experimenting with techniques that were sometimes amazing, and sometimes disastrous. In 50 Ways to Yay!, she shares her results in this delightful, yet thought-provoking primer, such as:
-It’s not about what life has dealt you, it’s about how you react to it.
-Vulnerability is relatable. Perfection is not.
-Those who are happy with nothing are happy with everything.
Alexi has done the extensive research (so you don’t have to) and synthesized it into fifty practical tools that you can apply for extraordinary results now. With her guidance, you can experience a domino effect of inner peace, inspiration, and a whole lot of happy.
First off, there are 50 lessons. And the author suggests going through 1-50 in order to really create a pattern in your brain (I like how she suggests that). I love that this book is really about you and really leaves it up to you. This book is really about self-discovery. Coming from a woman who seemingly had it all, this book really talks about the importance of finding yourself, loving yourself, and finding what makes you, you. And isn’t that what’s important in life?
“In order to see the change, we must be the change.”
When reading a self-help book, of any sort, I think it helps when you don’t feel like you are reading a self-help book. Because anyone could write a book with a list of steps and some bland explanation of how to achieve what you are trying to improve upon. But that doesn’t mean it is going to hold your attention.
50 Ways to yes is not that. It is filled with rich insight from an author that makes you feel like you are sitting down to coffee with a friend. Alex Panos really uses simple questions to really dig deeper into what you want to achieve in your life.
“When we change, the world changes.”
The greatest part of 50 Ways To Yay is the constant reminder that it really is up to you to initiate change into your life. And the author really brings up the power of reflection, which I personally think is so important. What can you do to make a change? And How does it feel when you did it?
Overall, this book is amazing and I loved every word of it. I am pretty confident that you will to.
“Everything in your life, good and bad, was manifested by you.”
