China 1.0 – A life experience

(Free e-book)

 

This e-book is a compilation of anecdotes and point of views of the author during his journey and life in China for more than 5 years.

The purpose of sharing these experiences is to inspire anyone, especially those who still believe that they are not capable of making their dreams come true, to accomplish goals regardless their difficulty, through positive attitude, dedication and indefatigable commitment, and thus, achieving personal growth by helping others to improve their lives.

There are many talented persons around the world who just need motivating words and somebody who leads and supports them during those unavoidable tough moments that everyone would have to face, sooner or later, in whatever activity they decide to undertake.

I have two pieces of news: A bad and a good one.

The bad news is that there will always be problems.

The good news is that there will always be solutions to those problems.

With that being said, let’s get inspired!
