What is the book really about?
"The book explains that we are living magnets. We attract the people, the situations and circumstances that match our dominant thoughts. So our mind determines the quality of our lives. That is why you are a master of your YOUNIVERSE."
Can you tell us a little about how the book came to be?
“I came to the island in 2014 or 2015 on an internship, but stayed to work. While I was here I had extra time on my hands and I like to be busy doing positive things that will enrich my time. So, I decided to do a study on Positive Psychology and received my Bachelors. On the weekends I would volunteer at the I Can Foundation. I also held a lecture series entitled, ‘Your Mind Your Power” and it allowed me to travel around the world. It was during this time that a professor planted the idea to write.”
When you’re not writing or doing lectures, what’s your day job?
“I do Human resources at Oyster Bay Beach Resort.”
The book has been recently published, but how long did it take you to finfish?
“I’ve been working on this for about five years.”
Wow, that’s long, how come it took so long?
“I wanted to make sure the book wasn’t built on just opinions. It took time to properly research and read other books.”
What was your favorite part about writing the book?
“The experience of having things happen and being able to immortalise them on paper.”
How did Covid affect you process?
“Honestly, I was still adding touches to the book up to three months ago, because I was so inspired by the world events. I wanted to include the message of ‘Reframing’ your life so that you can take advantage of whatever life gives you.”
“Yes, I wanted this to be a labour of love and sometimes when you give your work to publishers you don’t have as much autonomy anymore.”
How have people been receiving the book?
“So far, the reactions have been astounding. People from all over the world are reaching out and telling me how much they like the book and how it’s helped them.”
The book has many quotes from varying sources of knowledge and intellect, what’s the idea behind it?
“When you experience things you think about certain quotes that are relative to the situation you’re in. I know a lot of them, so I added them as a sort of simplified way of bringing my point across.”
What do you hope for people to take away from this book?
“The book is written so that anyone can understand it and be able to apply the information to their situations. I hope that people take away the beauty in simplicity.
