I learned the importance of having confidence in yourself and being willing to learn from others and in basic life these are the required tings

I learned a lot of stuff from this book and the opportunity to read it came at the right moment. This book really game me hope, it challenges you to try and be the best version of yourself. Live our life at its fullest and never give up on our dreams. We should look at the bright side of things and not dwell on the black cats of our lives. Additionally it made me think about the people that influence my life and the lesson they give me. And since reading the book I try to influence people positively.

Truly speaking, some of his motivations are available from other sources like YouTube motivational videos, so to me, it wasn't more of learning something and applying it to my own life, because I have seen or heard some of it someone else, and tried and applied. However, hearing it over and over again just revealed to me how important one must learn and truly apply. His motivations are excellent.

I learned some new ways to relate the things I know, my own truths, to situations I experience. It also reminded me to be aware of what I say and do, even when I'm not trying to teach a lesson, because someone may be learning something from them.

The book also encouraged me to examine my life, my goals and my own beliefs. I spent some time working through what is important to me and where I want to go with my life after I read the book.

My best experience from the book, is the deeper realisation that nothing in this life is ordinary. You just have to look deeper within the concept of relations and find the inspiration you need for your current life’s path

From this book " And The I Met The Margaret " I have learnt that to be honesty is important and just have positive attitude in order to achieve and succeed in life. And this can make one to be a teacher all around.

There are many gurus, and ordinary people alike, that help direct us throughout our journey of life, so when things don´t make sense to us, or we feel empty and depressed, we need to trust that and go in search of answers. I like that he doesn´t ignore that inner voice. Oftentimes, people are complacent and end up being miserable for their entire lives. I like that he has the courage to persevere.

I learnt that the thinking process and growth are continuous,
and the transformation of one's self keeps happening as one
faces different kinds of experiences in life and learn from them.
I also learnt that any point of time one cannot be sure that
they know it all, but must constantly strive to become a better
person than they are right now.

I'm not sure I learned anything per say, but I felt like reading it was a great reminder to be more self reflective, not only of my weaknesses, but also about the ways that I and my thinking have grown over the years. It reminded me time to reflect and to even write down these lessons .
