Charles- a CEO at the peak of his career, successful but unhappy, caught in his hamster wheel-of- fortune Antonio- an entrepreneur constantly starting new ventures, but unsure of his long-term future Toby- a tourist trying to escape from a life that was not his own, and break his cycle of bad luck A chance encounter between these three disparate characters and the Monk becomes the turning point in their lives. They embark on a journey of self-reflection, re-prioritise their lives, and take a different route to happiness, while enjoying the pursuit of material success. But this story is just a parable for what we can all achieve in our lives. Too many people today are preoccupied with work, have little time for their family and friends, and even less time for themselves. They tell themselves that they are doing this so that they can reap the fruits of their labour, relax, and be happy in the future. But, what if today was their future? When then will they be happy? Author Alex Butt invites you to take a leaf from this book and ask yourself, "Are you content and happy with your life?" Just like these three characters, you too can apply the simple truths contained in this tale, redefine your own path to contentment, and discover a balance between success and happiness.

Author Biography

ALEX BUTT transformed himself from a multinational corporate executive into a successful Coach and Entrepreneur. Since 2010, he has coached and transformed many organisations and entrepreneurs. Prior to this and at his peak, Alex was leading Microsoft's most profitable business, the OEM division, in the Asia Pacific. He started his career as a Systems Engineer at Honeywell and subsequently became a Support Manager at Hewlett-Packard before spending 17 'intense and defining' years at Microsoft. Alex has a Mensa-level IQ and became a millionaire at the age of 35. At the height of his career, at the age of 49 and after 25 years in the corporate world, he gave up the suit to pursue the path of an entrepreneur. Though spiritually agnostic, on his 56th birthday, his consciousness compass guided his decision to be ordained as a Buddhist monk. This led him to reboot himself by spending 45 days in seclusion in the forests of Thailand. Alex believes in pushing career plus physical and mental states to the limit of their potential. "It's not about being an extremist, rather about being alive, constantly striving and balancing the best of bodily health, material wealth, and the inner wisdom of the mind. Find your balance and you will discover happiness."
