In a society where material possessions symbolize success, many people confuse wealth with happiness. Being happy is what many of us strive for, but what does it mean to be truly happy? Has happiness always seemed to elude you? Are you ready to take charge of your life and begin to make conscious, intelligent choices that will serve you? It is time to take command of your life, put yourself back in control, and discover your life's higher purpose. In 6 Mega Life Transforming Hacks by Mirza Barlas, the six life-transforming hacks are backed up with research data, are simple, and will give you complete clarity on what you really want, plus a complete action road map to start seeing results. At the end of every chapter, you will receive some “specks of gold” and more resources to add to your life-hack tool-kit. Discover how to persevere and remain focused when you face obstacles, change negative thinking, learn how to evaluate problems objectively with CBT, increase your mindfulness, set goals, and solve problems intelligently. What if you could finally discover that happiness has always been within your reach?

Mirza Barlas's 6 Mega Life Transforming Hacks is an incredible step by step guide to improving your mindset, attitude, and thought processes. However, if you like to read self-help books and take no action, this book will not suit you. This guide is for anyone who is committed to change and is willing to take the necessary actions to achieve it. With the specks of gold, brilliant life-changing hacks resources section, there is no excuse not to begin to make significant alterations to your life. To gain knowledge and then take no action is simply adding more clutter to your life. However, if you truly want to change the direction of your life, then there simply is no better guide than this one. It is a huge treasure chest of techniques, exercises, and expertise. I thought the use of parables and stories were extremely helpful as they gave a visual aspect to obstacles and problems. I especially loved the quotes from historical figures; my favorite was from F. Scott Fitzgerald: 'Never confuse a single defeat with a final defeat.' I thought the 15 thinking errors and how to fix them section was very powerful. The goal-setting section was fantastic as it took a refreshing new look at problem-solving. I loved the section in Chapter 2 about turning your passion into your occupation; that was truly a lightbulb moment for me. The huge section on mindfulness and CBT was amazing, especially regarding the filters we place on reality. Everything in this guide is explained so clearly and will really inspire anyone to take the first step to dramatic change.

Mirza Barlas's 6 Mega Life Transforming Hacks: Maximize Your Life Satisfaction, Experiences, and Results is a self-help book written for those looking for the fulfillment that is often elusive, even among the rich, from an author who has already done the legwork for the rest of us. Barlas's book is divided into sections, one for each of the titular hacks, each with the tagline “for better life results.” These include perseverance and grit, expertise, positivity, mindfulness, happiness, and better perception and judgment. Within these hacks is an interpretation of a relevant parable, several illustrations, stories, and philosophy quotes, and what Barlas labels the “specks of gold” which define each hack and bullet-point the themes woven through the section.

Mirza Barlas identifies himself from the onset of the book as a successful, self-made man who still felt low despite the outward perception that he was on top of the world. The book identifies the simple techniques he employed to reshape his life, all of which are pretty easy to follow and implement, at least on a personal level to begin with. The majority of Barlas's guide consists of the philosophical content and their examples as they apply to the specific hack. These are incredibly articulate and detailed, occasionally to the point where they feel a little too much like a lengthy sermon, and despite one or two cliches, I genuinely enjoyed every part and Barlas's enthusiasm practically dances on the page. My favorite part was the 10 Specks of Gold for Attaining Mindfulness, which I made a conscious effort to employ three days in a row. Don't jump out of bed, shower mindfully, and sit mindfully in the dark for 15-minutes—as simple as they seem, these had an immediate and profound impact on how I managed the rest of my day. This is a great book for any reader who has perhaps read one too many self-help books on success and is looking for one that's different.

Mirza Barlas's 6 Mega Life Transforming Hacks: Maximize Your Life Satisfaction, Experiences, and Results is aimed to transform readers’ lives so that they get better results. This is a noble aim. In the introduction, Mirza Barlas shares where he is coming from and how he transformed companies and became a transformational change expert. This is important background information because, despite his achievements, Mirza Barlas was not happy. He then proceeded to transform his own personal life using the same techniques that he transformed the companies to achieve better results. The techniques are the six mega life-transforming hacks.

The six life hacks shared by Mirza Barlas are practical as they have been proven to work in Mirza Barlas’s own life. The six life hacks are described in six chapters. At the beginning of each chapter, there is a quotation which I like as it epitomizes the wisdom that follows. Mirza Barlas then explains the life hack. Towards the end of each chapter, there is the “specks of gold” section. This section is a gem because it gives the steps that can be taken to practice the life hack. It is then followed by the “mega life-transforming hack” section which is a list of key points in the chapter. I found this list is very useful. Clearly, Mirza Barlas gave a lot of thought to how to present his life hacks so that they are easy for readers to understand. This is why there are real-life stories, parables, and even illustrations and figures in 6 Mega Life Transforming Hacks. I must say I found the book to be well written, and the organization and the formatting are excellent. For anyone who is interested in improving their lives, 6 Mega Life Transforming Hacks is a recommended read.

Mirza Barlas's 6 Mega Life Transforming Hacks: Maximize Your Life Satisfaction, Experiences, and Results is a comprehensive and extremely clear non-fiction work that is dedicated to his family but also to us who are seeking more in our lives and that is so true of most of us. Life is exquisite if we keep striving to dig deeper, be happier, and make it meaningful. The book is made up of six main sections focusing on the 6 hacks or steps which will help us make our lives better, easier, and more fulfilling, a complete and fascinating bibliography, and even refers to some of my favorite works such as Hamlet!

I enjoyed reading 6 Mega Life Transforming Hacks, which is a well-written, easy to read, and genuine work. I really appreciated the fact that the author shares part of his experience with us in order to help us make the right choices. This book shows us that wealth and power are not the best ingredients for happiness. I particularly enjoyed the happiness as well as the mindfulness chapters, allowing us to improve our lives visibly, thanks to excellent advice and good sense. Mirza Barlas shows us how to change our way of thinking in order to change our ways and start leading a more fulfilling life, which is what every one of us needs, especially in these hard times. Definitely a must-read for anyone who wants to be uplifted, engaged in an engrossing read, given powerful ideas, images, and advice in order to change, really change! Thank you!

Despite achieving success at a young age, Mirza Barlas realized that happiness is not a by-product of success and success alone does not make one feel complete, so he resolved to make happiness his primary life goal thenceforth. Twenty years after choosing happiness, Mirza achieves even more success in different aspects of life, which prompted him to document his experiences and the things he learned about success and happiness in 6 Mega Life Transforming Hacks: Maximize Your Life Satisfaction, Experiences, and Results. The book exposes multiple "specks of gold" for improving happiness, success, life satisfaction, life experiences, performance, and results. At the end of each chapter are the chapter's key points and the relevant “mega life-transforming hack” to leverage the breakthrough ability taught in the chapter.

Mirza Barlas's 6 Mega Life Transforming Hacks is a complete package as it includes personal examples, images, research results, and quotes from different names and adages. Mirza Barlas's many achievements in business and management and the several research and references presented in the book make the points more believable and original. Also, the lessons are specific and targeted at different things that hinder people from achieving success and happiness. I learned to have a more positive attitude as negativity solves nothing but only adds more to the problem. As I have gotten a taste of how my approach to life can be improved from my first reading of 6 Mega Life Transforming Hacks, I plan to make it a habit to practice the exercises in the book regularly to experience a complete transformation. I highly recommend this book to anyone seeking fulfillment and satisfaction in life.
