Gavin Seah is a young author who believes that if people know the steps to follow to improve themselves, they will automatically become happier, healthier, more steadfast people. In his book True Humility, he feels that if he can teach a person to focus on what matters in life, they are halfway to peace and wellness, which are, in his experience, the fundamentals of true humility. Gavin couples his knowledge acquired through his life journey from childhood to adulthood to inspire and encourage a person to grow into a humble well-grounded individual. He bases his teachings on sayings he learned from Gandhi's inspirational writings. He tells about his growth and how he asks himself what he can do to make himself happy now. It’s all based on the ‘now’ Y_O_L_O (You only live once) principle which stems from self-indulgence. You do whatever makes you happy at the moment. You enjoy life at all costs with no regrets. This is the message Gavin would like readers to hear and follow through his stories.
He tells of how people should not pay attention to false humility in different forms, because it will lead to depression and in the end self-destruction. Instead, do the opposite and focus on and practice true humility. As people change and evolve one by one using this method, he believes the world will become a better more balanced place. I feel that Gavin Seah is one of many young authors trying to develop a better lifestyle through learning. His writings in True Humility are true and honest with a heartfelt touch of goodness, giving you the feeling that he stems from humble beginnings. He does not seem to feel the need to fit in, but rather to stand out in the crowd as an individual with a difference. Gavin’s writing is very inspiring for young and old, mainly because every story feels like you can relate to it in one way or another. He writes from experience and there is nothing better than true non-fiction through self-experience. I will be reading more from this author in the future. I can easily recommend this book to those seeking true inner peace and those who would like guidelines to follow on how to obtain it.
