His first book, Think Like a Monk

In 2020, Jay authored his first book, Think Like a Monk: Train Your Mind for Peace and Purpose Every day. The book debuted at #1 on the New York Times, #1 on the Sunday Times and was named “Unputdownable” by Amazon where it held the #1 spot worldwide. In this inspiring, empowering book, Shetty draws on his time as a monk in the Vedic tradition to show us how we can clear the roadblocks to our potential and power. Drawing on ancient wisdom and his own rich experiences in the ashram, “Think Like a Monk” reveals how to overcome negative thoughts and habits, and access the calm and purpose that lie within all of us.The lessons monks learn are profound but often abstract. This young man has a way of explaining things in a simple way so that it seems like it is all common sense. The book has tips on combating negativity (think of 10 positives for every 1 negative), putting your fear in perspective (on a scale of 1-10, what’s the worst thing that could happen to you? Now where does this fear land?), practicing your breathing and the importance of gratitude.

Shetty transforms them into advice and exercises we can all apply to reduce stress, improve focus, improve relationships, identify our hidden abilities, increase self-discipline and give the gifts we find in ourselves to the world. Shetty proves that everyone can – and should – think like a monk.

Although you do not necessarily need a formal education to become an author, you do need to have certain skills in order to be successful. Before you attempt to write or publish your first book, you need to make sure these skills are in place. To build these skills, you may choose to enrol in a formal training program, like my How to Write a Book and Become a Published Author program, or simply practice on your own.
