Additional Information

For anyone tired of chasing ever–elusive desires, of doing more only to find that more needs doing, and of making more money only to need more money, best–selling author Chin–Ning Chu shows you that life was meant to be easy, if you know the secrets.

From the best–selling author of The Working Woman's Art of War, comes an important and timely book about the side of success that most don't know about 注e power of selective yielding, of surrendering to a successful destiny, and of getting what you want by not wanting it too much.

Using Carl Jung's famous parable of the rainmaker as a framework, Chin–Ning Chu explains universal truths about the nature of effort, success, willpower, detachment, "creating luck," and more. Illustrating the four "secrets of the rainmaker" with rich anecdotes from history, personal experience, and popular culture, Ching–Ning explains how to create success by attaining inner harmony, how to partner effort with ease, how to make peace with time, and how to stop reacting and start restfully controlling the events of your life.

Taoist concepts to bring our modern go-go-go life back into a more natural rhythm.

1) "Everyone seems to be doing more and despite their best efforts, there is always more to do."
2) Busy is not necessarily always good. In Chinese, the two characters that mean busy are "heart" and "death".
3) Effort and ease are not opposites, but compliments. Think of a champion runner: Although they train mercilessly, when they run in a competition, they are trying to find their own internal tempo. When their effort becomes easy, then they really perform.
4) Don't try to manage time and fight it. Time is always the same, it is only the difference of our perception about time. Time is only a series of NOWs. So the way we spend NOW will determine our destiny.
5) Success does not necessarily mean more. Life is like a full glass. To put more in, you have to pour some out. Prioritize and do what is REALLY meaningful to you.
6) Be willing to walk away from... Read more
I love this book. Have read it at least four times, usually on long flights above the ocean or across a country. Here are its five principal lessons:

Desired outcome after reading:

Accomplish more by finding a better balance between effort and ease.

1. Trade what you have for what you want

"At any moment, your life is completely full... You had twenty four hours yesterday, and I guarantee that you used every minute and second of it." To make your life today different than it was yesterday, you have to give up something to make room for activities that will bring you what you desire. "Often, the greater the reward, the larger the adjustment you will have to make in your life."

2. Change your dreams, change your life

"Your dreams are like a movie projector reflecting your conscious and unconscious thoughts. If you want to know the quality of your life, examine the quality of your dreams." Do whatever you can to push your... Read more
This book is titled 'The Secrets of the Rainmaker' in Australia, which I reckon is a title more reflecting the style of the book.
It is so logical, the thinking... that I wondered why I didn't see...but at the same time reading the book has increased my confidence because, on another level, I realised that it was exactly how I thought.
I know that the best things happen to me when I am cruising along with life and not trying to force it.
This book explains why it is so. I would recommend it and have recommended it to anyone wanting to connect the spiritual with the day to day.
I love Chin Ning Chu and am amazed at the depth of her writing ability. I have read all her books and I never do that (read more than two books from the same author). I even read Rainmaker twice and keep picking it up and letting it fall open where it may.
Get it, read it and relax into life!!
