Looking back at 2020, we can all say that we went through lots of worries and difficulties. We were afraid of what the future might bring us. Fortunately, I read this book in those months. While reading, I realized that even in the most stressful days of my life, I must try to advance my thoughts and feelings.


If you feel the same, maybe you want to give it a chance and read it. This article is here to introduce a book that is perfect to enlighten your life.


Who is Andrew Matthews?

Andrew Matthews is an Australian author and speaker. According to his site, he has published his books in 47 languages and addressed over 1000 international corporations in happiness, well-being, and prosperity. He also appeared on over 5000 radio and TV programs.


He gives you a better understanding of your life and your relationships. He also shows you some new ideas of thinking, those you can use to be happier and healthier.


“Follow Your Heart” has ten chapters, and it talks about over three original concepts of well-being in each chapter. One of the biggest strengths of this book is that it is easy to digest.


Dedicate Time to Your Soul

Give fifteen minutes per day to Andrew Matthews and start an incredible journey with him. Listen to his practical advice with all of your heart. I assure you he will inspire you, and you will change at least some of your beliefs or thoughts after finishing this book.


What does the book talk about?

“Follow Your Heart” will show you a new horizon and engage you in lots of thinking. There are dozens of ingenious messages and useful advice waiting for you to consider and use.


It also talks about that you are enough, even with all of your flaws. The only thing you need to do is to embrace the changes and be happy with the existence of your challenges. Working on your weaknesses can strengthen you.


We are continuously being presented with small challenges which we must learn to overcome. “Unless we learn the lessons, we get to take them again… again… and again.” (Matthews, 1997. p16). Accepting the full responsibility for our obstacles will make this growth process smoother and more pleasant. Our problems are our treasures, which can bring us spiritual growth.


Matthews covers some significant concepts like the subconscious, the miracle of gratitude and peace of mind, passion, the secret of power, luck, family and forgiveness, and love and fear are other concepts that Andrew brought you with his interesting methods of writing.


Individual’s stories

The author suggests that even though we all have a story, we are not defined by them. We do not belong to a particular category. We can change the narrative of our lives if we are feeling unhappy with the direction we are going in.


He believes we can deal with our problems reasonably. If we are not happy with what we do, there are always jobs out there that belong to us. We can earn money and love what we do at the same time. Matthews teaches us to be comfortable with money, and to enjoy what we have in life. Thus, there is a chapter that helps us understand more about the benefit of the detachment of money, lovers, etc.


The school of life

Hard work is necessary to our growth. There is almost no way out of it. It is important to learn how to navigate the ups and downs of our lives. Life can be compared to school, which means that as long as you are breathing, the class is in session.
