The personal-development and self-improvement field is a virtual ocean brimming with great ideas and sound advice, but who has the time to wade through it all? With the desire to share his findings, author Jac Arbour explored and distilled this extensive body of information — he filtered it through his own experiences with success and his relationships with highly successful people to extract the most potent drops. “May You Drink from the Saucer” presents the most impactful concepts and habits that have delivered results for successful people throughout history and across pursuits.
At age twenty-one, Jac Arbour met a world-class entrepreneur who forever changed his way of thinking. After numerous conversations that touched on just about everything — family, achievement, happiness, success, significance, and more — Arbour’s new confidante gave him a life-changing instruction: seek out people who can serve as mentors. “If you do this in your life,” he promised, “your cup overflow.”
Arbour began to channel his natural zeal for learning toward finding more golden drops in the vast ocean of ideas and strategies. He devoured insightful books and, following his new mentor’s advice, surrounded himself with people more knowledgeable than himself in many important arenas: relationship building, philanthropic giving, wealth creation, life philosophy, business strategy, and networking and interpersonal connections. The pieces of wisdom he acquired are nothing less than timeless truths — ever-workable principles of success that lead to lives of meaning and fulfillment.
