It talks about what it all goes into creating our destiny. It is not by a chance; rather one has to pull it. Success is not Overnight – provides very insightful coverage on success equation. After the end of every chapter, the book puts it own summary cum commentary, such as:

Inspired living says that when undying passion to achieve something significant coupled with hard work rendezvous with a specific moment in time, luck manifests. In other words our destiny is our own making. We are the sole creators of our luck.

For instance, the author puts short story, and then what to do and how to do. It is quite helpful, in fact this pattern makes every chapter distinguished and accessible at any time.

The narrative of the book with middle chapters is more on pragmatic aspects like relationships, goals, habits, time, etc. As the book chugs to the end, there comes coverage on spiritual aspects.
