Who Moved My Cheese?
In early 1999 I met the man who later became my husband and it was he who introduced me to this wonderfully written book Who Moved My Cheese?
He was an avid reader of books and while I was sceptical of the title I found myself intrigued with how the author Spencer John shows how to anticipate change in your life, how to adapt quickly to change and most of all how to enjoy change and be ready for change time and time again!
At the time that I met my future husband I had just finished a 10-year relationship, moved jobs and moved to a new house, so you could say a lot of change was going on in my life…
Who Moved My Cheese Book – A brief synopsis
Who Moved My Cheese? tells the tale of four characters who live in a maze and each look for cheese to nourish and make them happy. In this book Cheese is a used as a metaphor for want you want to have in life!
That can be anything from being healthy, being wealthy, being spiritual, having a good job/career, in a lovely relationship etc. The maze represents where you look for what you want, your family, your community, your workplace and so on.
You will learn in this book how to discover the secret for yourself and also learn how to deal with change in your life, so that you suffer from less stress and enjoy more success in your work and in your life.
I understand this book is written for all ages, the story itself can be read in no time at all but the lessons and insights that is learned can last for a whole lifetime.
