Enough about Me: The Unexpected Power of Selflessness (Hardcover)
What if your path to a more successful, healthy, and satisfying life is actually not about you? Enough About Me equips you with practical tools to find meaning and compassion in even the smallest of everyday choices.
When his father was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease, Richard Lui made a tough decision. The award-winning news anchor decided to set aside his growing career to care for his family. At first, this new caregiving lifestyle did not come easily for Lui, and what followed was a seven-year exercise in what it really means to be selfless.
Enough About Me also takes a behind-the-scenes look at some of the world's most difficult moments from a journalist's point of view. From survivors of terrorist attacks to victims of racial strife, Lui shares the lessons he learned from those who rose above the fray to be helpful, self-sacrificing, and generous in the face of monumental tragedy and loss.
Lui shares practical tips, tools, and mnemonics learned along the way to help shift the way we think and live, including:
- Selfless decision methods and practices for work, home, relationships, and community
- Studies and research that show the personal benefits of being selfless
- The lasting impact of sharing your story
- Practical, bite-sized ways to be more engaging and inclusive in your day-to-day life
- How to train our decision-making muscles to choose others over ourselves
Choice by choice, step by step, the path to a more satisfying and fulfilling journey is right here in the people around us.
