Book Review: The things you can see only when you slow down

Hey lovelies! Welcome to a new blog post of Kenny’s diary! In today blog, I will be going a review of the book I read for the month of February. THE THINGS YOU CAN SEE ONLY WHEN YOU SLOW DOWN by author Heamin Sunim.

This book teach me to stop and look at when I feel tired of this life. Heamin Sunim has used this book to encourage me and his readers to understand their feelings. He has used his book to teach people that life is not about just taking instead to listen.

It is essentially a guide to mindfulness, comprising spiritual advice on dealing with anything from relationships to stress and a book that is easy to dip in and out of.

It is divided in eight chapters, each focussing on a different topic: Rest, Mindfulness, Passion, Relationships, Love, Life, The Future, Spirituality.

Haemin has also used This book to tell about passion, being happy , forgiveness , relationship, love , life, future, spirituality. I am really glad i came across this book by Haemin Sunim.

Overall, This is a universalfeel good book and I will definitely be reading it again. But this time, from a different perspective. Or refer to it whenever I find myself in a situation of needing some words of wisdom on something specific. So, I recommend everyone read it at least once in their lifetime.

Kenny’s takeaway quote

“But if you calm yourself and look more deeply, you will see that the person who hurt you is suffering, too.”

How to Get into Finance

There are plenty of ways and opportunities in accountancy, investment management, banking and insurance for both school leavers and graduates.

I currently hold a masters in finance. So, I can tell you that it was not the most easiest thing, but with great determination and hard work, it is achievable and very rewarding. I did business in school, accounting for undergraduate and finance for postgraduate and I am looking to go into Investment banking within the finance sector.

There are two majors ways to get into the finance sector as a school leaver. You can go into University full time or go into apprenticeship and you can start earning while you learn. Some employers might even allow you work and complete a university degree at the time same

Finance is a highly competitive and rewarding field and getting into it can be a little bit challenging. However, with the right knowledge and skills, any one can break into the Finance industry.

The first step to getting into finance is to understand the different types of finance and the various roles within the field. Some of the most common types include investment banking, corporate finance, and asset management. Each of these areas has its own set of responsibilities and requires different skills and qualifications.

One of the most important things to do when getting into it is to gain a solid understanding of financial concepts and principles. This means studying economics, accounting, and business management. These subjects will provide you with the foundation of knowledge you need to be successful in the finance industry.

Another important step in getting into finance is to gain experience. This can be done through internships, part-time jobs, or volunteer work. These opportunities will provide you with hands-on experience and a chance to learn from experienced professionals. Additionally, they will give you an inside look into how the industry works and provide you with valuable connections and references.

In summary, getting into finance requires a combination of education, experience and the right mindset. With this, you can set yourself up for success and start building a rewarding career in finance.
