World News – GB – I read Ovie Soko’s book and here are the 11 lessons that changed my life


Love Island’s Ovie Soko has written a self-help book, and although the usual advice you would expect from an ex-Love Islander the dish includes not drinking tap water because the government is going to use it to kill us and not poop in front of your boyfriend, this is Ovie Soko we are talking about

Ovie cool, calm and collected This is the man who went to Love Island, who wore his bucket hat, sucked an ice cream and only raised his voice to shout « message » when someone received a text message He was the King of Quiet Confidence who didn’t get involved in the drama and acted like a real gentleman keeping India away from this storm Jordan and Anna So if this man offers me any positivity advice, you can be sure I’ll listen

Ovie’s new book, « You Are Dope » is part dissertation and self-help book It gives you advice on how to achieve « doping » by relating it to his own stories and how they taught him a powerful lesson

While his advice isn’t always particularly groundbreaking, it has been refreshing of him, and because he backs it up with real life examples from his own life, you believe it

LESS THAN A WEEK OF RELEASE, AND HERE YOU GET, the final cover This book has been one of the most exciting projects I have had the chance to work on in the past year I think there is something everyone can take away from reading to help them on their journey of life Have a nice day folks 🙌🏿❤️🙏🏿😊😀😃😁😆

The only criticism I have of his book is that it uses the word « dope » about a thousand times and it gets a little boring, but it’s Ovie, so I can get over it

Most importantly, there are all the empowering lessons he can teach us, and that’s all I learned from my new life guru Ovie Soko and his book:

Ovie’s introduction is about what stupidity means to him and how we all have the quality of being dope in us He says it manifests in different ways in everyone and reminds us that we have all of our own once in a lifetime journeys, and just because your path is different from someone else’s doesn’t mean it doesn’t make it less dope

And even the smallest things can get you dope, like buying Ovie’s book or patching things up with a friend or doing the dishes for your parents without them asking Unfortunately my mom doesn’t see it as bad. drugs, she calls it chores

Group chat PSA, if you stop hearing me, here’s why Ovie talks a lot in the book about how your circle of friendship can affect your trip and really asks the reader to consider if the people who ‘he rubs shoulders with bring out the best of themselves

Ovie also wants you to rate your friends and think about whether you really want to be around people who don’t support your dreams or who do things you wouldn’t agree with, like cheating on their partner.

Didn’t know that drug rehab is something I needed before reading this book Ovie advises to beware of negative energies, to spend time alone for yourself, to make lists of gratitude and purpose, to hold to a five star standard, not to follow the flock and to take a leap of faith

Although being aware of negative energy sounds like something Gwyneth Paltrow would say, making lists and prioritizing alone time is definitely something I can accept

Ovie talks a lot about his dad, whom he counts as one of his role models He describes how hard he worked in his job as a social housing officer during the week and a security guard on the weekends. end But despite working seven days a week, Ovie’s father’s main passion was his art and he had a shed at the back of the garden where he always went after work.


Ovie remembers his father regretting not pursuing his passion for art and making a career out of it. He says it was something that inspired him to persevere to become a basketball player

Ovie also has a great deal of admiration for his mother, who worked as a property manager until she fell very ill.Ovie said her illness made him realize how short life is and how she then returned to study theology in order to preach This is something she loves to do and continues with today

That’s the saying we’ve all heard a thousand times, but Ovie actually backs up the generic statement with examples from his life that taught him this valuable lesson

When he goes to his high school in Mill Hill, Ovie walks down a peculiar street with awesome houses, and when he stays in America, the house he lives in has a fridge full of Gatorade and snacks These moments show him how material objects can help make you happy

But living in a small village in Greece at the height of the recession and seeing how completely satisfied the villagers were with their minimum lives made her realize that objects and money are not a bliss.

Part of the book that surprised me a bit was that Ovie had done something wrong in his life Ovie uses a passage on him stealing stuff from school lockers as a way to ‘educate people about positive masculinity

Ovie describes how the pressure he felt to fit in and look like a young man led him to steal other people’s property.Ovie and a few friends slipped office keys and stole things in people’s lockers after everyone left He and his friends were finally surprised a few weeks later and he writes how this incident shaped his thinking

He writes about not doing things to fit in and then gives a guide to positive masculinity He suggests not to ignore your emotions, the strongest thing to do is go your own way and to question the opinions of those around you In all fairness, men could gain a lot from just reading this section of Ovie’s book

A section of Ovie’s book focuses on his basketball journey At several points, Ovie recounts leaving the safety of his comfort zone to progress further in his career

He moved to America at 16 which is pretty scary and starts in a safe high school.But after a year there he realizes that the best players around him are at a different and more difficult school and so he decides to settle there And it paid off

Later in his career he had the opportunity to join a Greek team in a higher league, but for a lower salary than staying in the current league he was currently in, which was a lower level And again the risk paid off, after playing for the team in Greece he was able to join a team in Spain, which is second best compared to the United States. All this according to Ovie btw, I have no idea about basketball

I know it hurts me too In his book, Ovie describes three important relationships he had throughout his life His first love was a girl called Tabitha in school in London

His second was an American called Rebecca and the third was one called Gina And I’m incredibly jealous of everyone

Honestly, nothing rocked me more than his section on blocking emotions in relationships It was like all the bad experiences I had with boys made sense

Ovie told the story of his first girlfriend Tabitha when he was 12 and she texted it The breakup was his first real rejection and it made him feel embarrassed, angry and bitter and he didn’t want to feel this vulnerability anymore So he put up a wall and won’t let anyone in

This pattern is repeated when he tries to have other relationships He would get closer to a girl and then she would want to be let in and he would end it

He tells a really sad story about his second love Rebecca They were in high school together in America and got along really well She revealed how much she loved him which made Ovie realize that he should be open with her and didn’t want to be vulnerable so he ended She even came to his house in the rain to ask him to reconsider My heart is breaking for her Ovie i expected better from you

And you know what I think Ovie when he tells me that Ovie’s book is full of thought-provoking advice, heartwarming stories and a great overview of everyone’s favorite islanders

Ultimately, what I’ll take away from Ovie Soko’s book is the power of self-confidence, listening to intuition and being yourself will always be the thing. stupidest you can do
