"Everyday practical wisdom for happy, effective living."


Moh Hon Meng

“Live Well, Love Much, Laugh Often - Reflections to Empower Your Life Journey by Apelles Poh is a self-help inspirational book, full of nuggets of practical wisdom and memorable phrases which will transform your thinking, enrich your relationships and empower you in your life’s journey.  The book is largely based on what the author defines as the three pillars of success in life: Spirituality (Inward journey), Skills (Onward journey) and Relationships (Outward journey). Each chapter has a catchy proverbial phrase e.g. “As a Man Thinks, So He Becomes” or “Don’t Just Fill Your Life with Days, but Fill Your Days with Life” which make you want to dive into it straightaway and uncover the insights. Moreover, if you are a fan of self-help motivational books such as “The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen R Covey” or “The Purpose Driven Life by Rick Warren”, many of the sharing in this book by the author will certainly resonate with you as they did for me. I highly recommend this book for all leaders who aspire to reflect on their purpose in life and want to know the tools to live such an enlightened, enriched and empowered life."
