The bestseller Carve Your Life: Live a Great Life with Carvism is a self-empowerment book for those seeking to find their true self, find meaning in their life and lead a fruitful and successful life. It was published in India by Times Book Group, a division of the world’s largest English newspaper, The Times of India. The book sold exceptionally well, and featured among India’s top bestselling books on amazon.in in the Personal Development and Self-Help category.
Talking about the book at the book launch ceremony, famed Bollywood actress Bhagyashree said
“I think the book has something we all should follow in our lives. It uses simple language and simple words, but it shows a deep insight into our daily living. It shows how we can de-clutter our lives and make use of whatever we have with a sense of gratitude to help the society and the people all around us. I think most importantly it tells you not only to follow the passion in your heart with dedication but to do it with a sense of compassion towards everyone around you. Dr.Prem’s book really is a sense of inspiration for everyone.”
Carve Your Life narrates Dr Prem’s signature Carvism principles, his detailed description of ‘Self-Carving Qualities’, ways to ‘Shape Your Mind’, and the process to ‘Find Your Passion’. According to the author, our lives are nowadays choked by unnecessary accumulations, because of which we are unable to ‘uncover’ the true purpose of our life; once we do this, we will enjoy a quality life to the fullest. Hence, carving out a lean life is the only way forward.
The author, Dr Prem Jagyasi, an award-winning global leader and acclaimed life coach, has delivered keynote speeches and conducted focused workshops in several countries. He is renowned for delivering succinct and customized Carve Your Life training programmes. In his book, he has answered readers’ queries about minimalism, productivity and tactical transformation in one’s self. Apart from Carve Your Life, Dr. Prem Jagyasi has also written books on medical tourism, wellness tourism. Currently, he is working on a book on wellness therapies, which he expects to publish very soon.
Shedding light on what inspired him to write this book, Dr Prem Jagyasi says, ‘The art of carving one’s life through minimalism is empowering enough to bring about maximum transformation in one’s real self. My upcoming book intends to be a saviour for all those who wish to find a purpose in their life, bring out their true self, and get most productivity out of their endeavours.’
The rising need for practical, no-nonsense books and media with relevant life-inspiring content has grown exponentially in recent decades. Carve Your Life attempts to bridge that gap and help people identify clutter in their lives, declutter their lives and then focus on the material and non-material aspects that hold and add value in their lives.
The book has been edited, published and marketed by Times Group Books (TGB), a division of The Times of India Group. Madhuita Mohanty, Senior Editor, TGB, says about the upcoming release, ‘We are delighted to publish Carve Your Life. We believe Dr Prem Jagyasi’s indigenously developed philosophy of Carvism will immensely benefit readers as it provides practical insight into the art of being at one’s productive best.’
About Carve Your Life Book
We have more things, but are we more of ourselves?
Carvism, the author’s indigenously developed philosophy, is the art of carving away unnecessary things and keeping only that which is of true value. As we grow older, we begin accumulating many needless beliefs, opinions, habits, and tendencies. By the time we are adults, our true self is already hidden behind the rocks of superfluities. We are prisoners of the unnecessary, and the only way to free our beautiful true self is by chipping away the inessential from our lives. Just as a sculptor carves out the beauty hidden in a piece of stone, we too need to take a hammer and chisel to our selves.
The first section provides an insight into various principles of Carvism. This section is followed by self-carving qualities, which are the essential abilities you need to carve out the life you want. ‘Shape your mind’ is about using human psychology and the subconscious mind to your advantage. ‘Find your passion’ shows you the way to discover your inner calling. Subsequent chapters provide step-by-step instructions on inculcating the true essence of Carvism in one’s professional and personal life and explain how the Carve Your Life philosophy can put them on the path to discovering their true selves.
