Celebrating Quiet People: A unique collection of motivational, inspirational and uplifting TRUE stories for introverts and highly sensitive persons that you shouldn’t miss….
From the Amazon #1 best-selling author of the “Quiet Phoenix” series of books comes an outstanding collection of biographies and events that guarantee to increase your self-compassion and self-esteem, regardless of your age, gender or status in society.
This book is primarily written to celebrate the unique characteristics of quiet, introverts and highly sensitive persons.
But why should anyone write about such persons, you may wonder.
The simple answer is because most societies, whether Western or Eastern, value extroversion as an ideal.
“Successful” personalities are considered to be ‘bold, assertive, those who can take the center stage and a fellow who is mighty likable’.
Introverts are often misunderstood.
At home, parents worry if their quiet child is spending too much time in solitude, day dreaming whereas the real world operates through socializing and networking.
At school, teachers presume that if a child is hesitant in answering questions, that child must be displaying some kind of learning or social disability.
At work, introverts are considered to be not good ‘team players’ and lacking in enthusiasm and initiative.
And bullies (both in school and in the work place) think they are easy pushovers.
Still no one should assert that introverts do not have any strong points.
They are in fact gifted with the strengths of persistence, hard work, creativity, self-discipline, a knack for self-learning, high emotional intelligence and a rich imagination.
After all, many eminent personalities like Abraham Lincoln, Albert Einstein, Walt Disney, and even J.K. Rowling were introverts.
In fact, as the author mentions, reading a lot of psychology books (including Susan Cain’s Quiet the power of introverts in a world that can’t stop talking) made him realize of his own unique potential, and his powers (or super powers, as he would like to say) that only a few years back he was not very conscious of.
This resulted into the writing of the Quiet Phoenix series. The theme of the series was that just as the Phoenix bird has the potential to be reborn literally from the ashes, so do introverts have the power to rise from any difficult situation.
‘Celebrating Quiet People’ tells us about how some really famous introverts overcame, with steely resolve, the most difficult challenges thrown their way.
Persons associated with law, law firms or contemplating a career change may find the lessons especially relevant.
The author sincerely hopes that these stories will give you the courage to pursue your dreams and ambitions, regardless of how “outlandish” they may seem to others.
