Do you feel trapped in your work and life?
Do you feel empty and unfulfilled?
Do you see happiness as something you will achieve “one day”?
The sad truth is, achieving society’s definition of success – an impressive career, status and wealth – can be a hollow victory.
Yu Dan Shi knows this all too well. A lifetime spent chasing endless goals and the appearance of success came at a huge personal cost: a punishing workload while raising a family, a daily battle devoid of meaning, failing health and misery.
Facing the truth was a painful yet life-changing experience. It had been a long, difficult journey from her underprivileged beginning in remote China. But the void Yu Dan felt at the height of her corporate career was a gift. With a new vision of success and clarity about what truly mattered to her, she transitioned to a path of passion, joy and meaning. Her book will show you how you can do the same.
Change doesn’t have to be daunting. You don’t have to upend your life and throw away everything you have achieved.
In this transformative book, Yu Dan explores the conflict faced by the high achievers and guides you through her four proven and research-based principles, giving you the practical steps to make real, sustainable changes to your life.
You can be happy now. You can transform your life. You already have everything you need to get started, right now.
So, are you ready to come alive?
“There’s a place in between the life you live and the life you want to live. This book takes you on a journey to close this gap. Yu Dan has nailed what it means to be ALIVE.
This book breaks big concepts into easy to digest chunks that enables you to create change, meaning and joy now. There is no need to wait.
As I read the book, tears rolled and it restored hope of what is possible and how we have the strength to come back from anything.” - Dina Cooper, author of Smart Parenting and creator of Parent as Leader
“Yu Dan Shi skilfully combines ancient wisdom with modern evidence. She explores an important message about listening deeply to yourself before you design your future. Her skilful questions create a stirring inside you that will help you explore more and create a potent platform for a meaningful future” - Oscar Trimboli, Author ‘Deep Listening’
“Sometimes the most profound truth comes from the simplest prose; stories that we can all relate to but habitually failed to see it for what they are.
Yu Dan’s clear and concise writing feels like it is my own voice coaching me on something I should have paid attention to long ago; it is familiar, gentle but also completely concealed until you open your eyes and ears.
Come Alive is an account of someone who have made it through a hollowing discovery and return to share with us the joy and passion that we can all unlock if we care to pay attention and take up the practice.” – Chris Ho, Digital Transformation Leader, Lifelong Photographer
