LONDON, Nov. 14, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- In an age when people are never without their smartphones, headphones and tablets, silence has become scary," says Andro Donovan, author of the new book Motivate Yourself: Get the Life You Want, Find Purpose and Achieve Fulfilment, published by Capstone, a subsidiary of Wiley. Moreover, because we are no longer accustomed to the sounds of silence, Donovan says we have lost the ability to connect to who we really are.
Donovan, who spent 20 years working with top-level executives who yearned to be more fully engaged and satisfied, says it is possible to gain back the contemplative space we once routinely enjoyed.
She can talk about:
- How noise and distractions became 21st-century addictions.
- Why if you can't survive a day without your cell phone you are probably incapable of being alone with yourself.
- How to use the Thanksgiving holiday to get unplugged, enjoying a restful respite that allows you to be fully present in your loved ones' lives.
- What everyone needs to know about accessing their inner voice which, as director Steven Spielberg has pointed out, never shouts at you but only whispers. Without access to this internal voice, people remain unaware of who they are, what they want from life and where they should be focusing their energy.
