Robin Sharma is Canadian writer, best known for his The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari book series. Sharma worked as a litigation lawyer until age 25, when he self-published Mega Living (1994), a book on stress management and spirituality. He initially also self-published The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari, which was then picked up for wider distribution by Harper CollinsSharma has published 12 other books, and founded the training company Sharma Leadership International.

One of the popular speakers on leadership and author Robin Sharma has recently published his new book “THE 5 AM CLUB” and says his advice in this book can change the lives of its readers. Sharma, whose books have sold over 15 million copies and have been translated into at least 92 languages. During his ongoing book tour in the country said that the “twilight period in the morning is of utmost “peace and tranquillity” and tranquillity being a “luxury” in our times, should not be missed”.

He continued in furtherance, “people are very attracted to the idea of an hour for themselves before the day gets busy. It is almost like a retreat to the simpler times. I have been teaching the 5 AM club method for above 20 years. The book is not just about waking up at 5 AM, but there is a specific morning routine--20: 20: 20—which I urge the readers to follow. I have been teaching that to my high-profile clients like billionaires, sports superstars, celebrities and CEOs. It has brought tremendous change in their lives” told in his characteristic inspirational tone.

He said that upon realising the “MAGIC” that the 5 AM Formula had done for the successful people, he wrapped it around a story, like he did in “The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari” and published it, in the form of a book. He further added that, he has divided the first hour of the day into three equal segments of 20 minutes each. The first sequence is for sweating by doing some physical activity. The second one he says, is for reflection through prayer, meditation or writing a journal. And finally, the last 20 minutes before the day gets busy, is for growing by reading, watching a useful video or listening to a podcast.

“There are lot of people with a lot of money, but money is all they have.  It’s very inspiring to see how many people want to be the heroes of their lives, how many people want to grow and rise above their circumstances. One of the keys to my longevity is that I want to help people, I don’t write books but I am putting down the information that is not superficial but really creates change”, he said, pointing out that one hour a day, if utilised in the manner that he has put forth in his new book, can definitely change lives.

He said he wrote ‘THE 5 AM CLUB” for over four years because he wanted it to be a beautiful and powerful book. “I wanted every line to be hand crafted and so I put my heart and soul into it”.
