Today we talk about MORNING ZEN, a book by Adrian Gonzalez, published with our publishing house Europe Books.
Europe Books had the pleasure of interviewing the author Adrian Gonzalez, to get to know him better, what prompted him to write his book MORNING ZEN, as well as if he personally experienced the method he describes in his book.
Below you can find our interview. Take a seat and enjoy your reading!!!
- What prompted you to write your book?
I always wanted to write a book, but I saw it as a long-term goal, more like a “nice to have”. All started when I began to coach close people during pandemic for them to cope with their lives by improving their daily habits, having more control over their emotions and anxieties. So, what I did was to share with them a method which I constructed for several years, practiced during the mornings and will make them focus on their happy attitude, health and goals. And it was not until, out of the blue, one of my friends called me to tell me all the amazing benefits that he was experiencing regarding this routine, and that I should immortalized it, into a book so all the world could also have the opportunity to experience these positive changes in their lives too. Additionally, I can say that it also helped, my professional experience in marketing regarding Storytelling”, where all of this sync, to start writing this beautiful book that for sure you will enjoy.
- What would you like to hear from your readers?
I would love to hear from my readers the stories of how this book made them thrives into their mornings and empower into their lives. Also, to know how Morning Zen becomes part of their daily routine, and how they integrated, similar as taking breakfast. I am positive that Morning Zen will become a “trend topic” and would love to hear people asking to each other: “Did you Zen today?”, and with this becoming the trademark that will help a lot of people in this world to have a happier morning and a better attitude to their life.
- I assume that you have directly experienced the method you describe in the book? What did it teach you? How long will it take?
I wrote the book based on my experiences throughout life and as my motto says: “Argue with the experience” or “Sometimes we have to do the pizza tour to know which one is the best in town”. So yes, I have directly experienced the Morning Zen method, as I created it, which took me around ten (10) years of understanding and put it into practice with “trial and error” until it can be condensed into 11 habits, followed seamlessly and easy to replicate withing decision makers and people that want to grow and thrive.
- How did it feel to see your book published?
I feel an accumulation of emotions. First thankful with God, family, friends, Europe Books and all the people who support me during this process. Also, I understood that life path can be change for better if we work hard for it, with the discipline, talent, resilience, and the confidence that we can make it happen. Sometimes it feels surreal, but also, I feel very happy to know that I will have the opportunity to help a lot of people in this world and leave a positive mark in this life.
- Are you planning to write more books?
I have thought about it. Although I haven’t planned it yet, what I want right now is to enjoy this process, to live these new experiences, and focus on all the work that comes after a book is published. As entrepreneur and marketing consultant, having a good product doesn’t mean that you already succeed. It is more than that. You need a list of things i.e.: a plan, teamwork, strategy, marketing, logistics, organization, and a roadmap to follow constantly so this good product can reach and succeed. I am convinced that this is one of the best self-help books of the century, and what I would recommend is to put it in the list of the book that you need to read in life. So, get it, read it and try it. You won’t regret it. You will experience the magic of what I mean with “Empower Your Life by Transforming Your Mornings; and is it for the rest, practice Morning Zen.

To you, my dear reader, I wish that the method here described will help and improve your mornings, but above all your days and your everyday life in its daily routines. I hope you can experience the magic that the author tells us which allows to “enhance life by transforming it from the very morning practice”!”
So, my dear reader, all I have to say is to enjoy this inspirational and practical reading!
