The ebook "Boy in the Library" is focused on one deliverable - to empower you to truly embrace life and connect with your purpose. My winning speech at a speaking competition provides you a glimpse of the very real contents of this book which is designed to help you connect with your purpose.
My name is Sultan Akif and I resigned from a successful 17 year career as a global executive to follow my dream of empowering youths. Connecting with my passion has been one of the best life decisions for me. The story went viral and it started a big change in my life. It also empowered me to make a real difference.
This e-book is not designed to be a travel book. It is not a career map. It is not designed to give advice on topics that I have not experienced myself. It not designed for a rah-rah narrative which fizzles out the moment you close the e-book. It is designed to be a guide that you can use to travel deep within - to connect with yourself - with things that will bring joy and happiness for you. It is very honest account of someone who sees the world very differently, who enjoys the positive energy of people and who believes that good people need to rise to the upper echelons to power so their goodness can illuminate the world. It is designed to ignite something deep within that over time, enables you to glow with a flame that will not be extinguished. In one sentence, it is designed to help you connect with your purpose.
I am now the General Manager of Experience Your Life Expo which is one of the largest youth empowerment Expo's in Ontario and the CEO of Library in a Week which as recently ranked one of the top five social enterprises in Ontario. I went to Nepal to write this book last summer about the transformation. In an exciting series of events, the universe literally aligned to empower me to build two libraries, one deep in the Himalayas, in 4 days each. This has now grown to 12 libraries in the far corner of the world in just 8 short months. For anyone thinking about the deeper questions of life, this book provides a blueprint to help you navigate to a place in your life that is happier, healthier and filled with contentment. It is now my mission to build 100 libraries around the world.
My story goes across 70 countries geographically, across all classes economically, across humans of all ages, across many cultures both mainstream and isolated to finally connect with my purpose and passion to empower others. To truly appreciate the human spirit that brings us together across perceived differences. The story will bring the many amazing people that I have met in my travels to life – it will empower their ideas and their light to shine through to you. To share the perspective that has brought a lot of contentment in my life. To empower others to focus on what is real and filter out the noise. To empower others to define success in terms of real things – things that make them happy – things that truly matter after all has come and gone. To help them see past the mist that clouds us sometimes. It will be an insight into the thought process that propelled me from obscurity to global corporate success and the same thought process that led me to leave it all behind to build something that truly matters!
The book is focused on one deliverable - to empower you to truly embrace life.
