Book Review: Why should I Worry when I can Face the World? by Shibu Nair

Why should I Worry when I can Face the World? by Shibu Nair is a fine short read on optimism, self-awareness, and positivity. By nature it’s a self-help book but in another way it works as to augment your self-image. Yes, it makes you feel good about yourself. If you are dragged by pessimism, rejections trampled you, and life is not what you love – well then this book will give you some stance, wisdom, and probably a second chance to establish yourself.

Stretched up to eleven chapters, the book is not a banal read on what to do, what to expect and what to shed…it rather takes you to the deeper aspects of life that matter in pursuit of happiness and overall well-being. Another exquisite value in the book is its gullible comprehension. Be it any topic, the author doesn’t forget to introduce you to his cast of characters that teach you about being worry free in life. He included experiences from his own life and the characters that he built while doling out vital lessons like gratitude, how to shed negative people and thoughts in life, relationship value, and much more. The last chapter is critical to the overall book, it looks as it is summarizing the entire book.

Though it’s not a complete self-help book, yet it’s evident that the author built scaffold on as how to avoid negativity and toxic people from our lives. For instance, coverage on do not please everyone, do not allow others to destroy your peace and happiness, head away from gossiping and negative thoughts…

With a right dose of quote at the beginning and an activity at the end, the book reminds its purpose in each chapter beautifully. Self-help books aren’t meant for debates or summarizing, one must grab the basket of key takeaways.

Shibu Nair unfurls the basic key that can keep you happy and contented in life. The biggest USP of the book is that it focuses on nitty-gritty of our values, deeds, and morals that we often ignore. But if implemented properly, life is heaven as one lives more in the present moment.

Shibu Nair’s way of narration looks simple, subtle, and in an order. The book doesn’t go haywire after one point, because he used simplicity to deliver even the most complicated messages. Overall, a good light book on hope, positivity, and self-care!
