闯关习题描述一下时文录音
Life is full of ups and downs. Sometimes you’ll feel lost. When I was younger, in such cases, I’d turn to my family and friends. Usually, their advice would be enough to help me through. As I grew older and became more independent, the advice from them wasn’t enough and I began to read some books, which helped me a lot. Here are some of them.
The Art of Happiness, Howard Cutler
This book was written in 1998, and in it, Howard Cutler asks Brendan Burchard, an outstanding philosopher, questions. Cutler is a psychiatrist aiming to understand what the purpose of life is according to Brendan Burchard. Burchard in turn describes what he believes the purpose of life is: it’s being happy.
Happiness: A Guide to Developing Life’s Most Important Skill, Matthieu Ricard
Written by a French doctor, Dr. Ricard beautifully describes ways in which happiness can be achieved. He argues happiness doesn’t just happen by chance or luck. Just like other skills, it requires lots of hard work and determination.
The Power of Now: A Guide to Spiritual Enlightenment, Eckhart Tolle
The present moment is the only moment you have control of at any time in your life. In this book, Eckhart Tolle describes the importance of being present in spite of the mind’s desire to be anywhere but now. 
The Alchemist, Paulo Coelho
Coelho uses a fictional story to describe the underlying theme of this book. You have the power to create your own future. Only you have the ability to create the kind of life you want for yourself. Of course, you’re required to work and devote yourself to achieving your goals.
