How do you move on from a traumatic breakup? You begin a personal project to help bring you to a healthier and happier life. That’s how Myke Celis, a former multinational advertising executive-turned everything-he-wanted-to be, did it.
He has published a book called “100 Life Lessons for Success: Shout Outs for One’s Sensibilities” after leaving the corporate world more than 10 years ago.
His latest book, though, called, “#BestMeEver: Of Positivity and Possibilities,” is his way of life. It is a non-preachy, sometimes bitchy, approach to self-help aimed at helping individuals who find themselves looking for the best version of themselves.
“Part of my coping mechanism was to engage in new activities and write. I started with #bestyearever then, when I started to live healthier and happier in the process. I figured out by the end of that year that, really, it wasn’t about the timeline, it was about myself. Thus the following year, I started #bestmeever,” Myke says.
The book is actually a compilation of uplifting quotes and thought-provoking insights which help one embark on his journey to becoming his #bestmeever. It can be used as a random mood booster or source of affirmation when in doubt.
“You just have to set your intention, then open the book and point at a random page. It can do wonders,” Myke says.
When life hits you hard, all you need is a positive thought a day to keep you going. So hit your favorite bookstores and get your daily dose of positivity and possibilities with #bestmeever.
