In her book, Fernandes shares the six steps that helped change her life and can change your life too. After each step, she shares the “life lessons” she has learned in her journey to success.
Visualize dreams, set goals, stay focused, move forward, and live every moment with passion. these are just a few of the important steps to follow.
Too often, motivational books are written by “self-help gurus” as Fernandes calls them. “I come from humble beginnings,” she said. “I wasn’t raised with a silver spoon in my mouth.”
The Genuine You is unique because, unlike other motivational books, it does not dictate formulaic solutions to people’s complex problems.
“I’m just an ordinary person who decided to step outside her comfort zone and claimed the life that rightfully belonged to me. And the wonderful thing is that anyone can do this,” Fernandes said.
As university students, we are often unsure of our future.
“When you’re in school,” said Fernandes, “you seem to be confused with the future. Finding your path begins with finding out who you are and discovering the life that you want to lead. The Genuine You helps you do that and more.”
For many, the idea of finding the right life for them is hindered by opportunities for high income.
“Whatever you do in university has to be something that truly fulfills you and you have to believe that the money will come,” Fernandes said.
The Genuine You is a must for university students, according to the author.
“If I knew then what I know now, I would have made so many different choices” Fernandes said.
