About the Book (Excerpts & Info)
What is a truly successful life?
Is it, as so many say, simply career advancement and material abundance?
Or is it something more? "A truly successful life," says author D.L. Tanner, "is a life purposely lived, moment by moment, in the grip of unconditional love, with values and priorities ordered from the perspective of eternity."
A Truly Successful Life will help you:
-Begin with a foundation of faith and love.
-Prioritize values from the perspective of eternity.
-Live out the "Law of Love" by loving others unconditionally.
-Realize that you are the master of your own life.
-Discover and follow your dreams.
-Work at your chosen profession with excellence.
-Survive the darkness of sadness and loss because of the foundation of faith, love and eternal priorities.
-Fully enjoy life and live it to the fullest.
In A Truly Successful Life, author D.L. Tanner calls for a paradigm shift in the world of success literature. “A truly successful life,” he says, “is a life purposely lived, moment by moment, in the grip of unconditional love, with values and priorities ordered from the perspective of eternity.” In eleven succinct chapters, Tanner builds the structure and form of his True Success manifesto: Faith, Love, Prioritize Your Values, Surviving the Darkness, The Family of Mankind, Romance, Parenting, Proactivity, Live Your Dream, Success at Work, and Enjoy Your Life.
The faith described in this book is presented from a Christian, but nonjudgmental, perspective. In the “Love” chapter, Tanner describes what he calls the “Law of Love”: “…a single universal law that emanates from divinity and exists within the heart and conscience of every human being.” It is this single law, he says, that the “First Cause of all life” wants us to follow. He presents a comprehensive approach to re-prioritizing one’s life in favor of the things that matter most, while also inviting the reader to engage in an invigorating journey of self-exploration and self-discovery, and there is a handy “Take Action” section at the end of each chapter.
In the “Proactivity” chapter, Tanner urges us to “take ownership of your life.” “You must craft your own destiny,” he tells us. How? “Everything in life is a choice,” he answers, including our response to every situation in which we may find ourselves. He then goes on to walk the reader through creating their own identity, forgiving themselves for past mistakes and starting their life over. “It doesn’t matter what negative things anyone else may think of you,” he says. “This is your life.”
A Truly Successful Life helps provide healing for emotional and spiritual pain, a place of safety and peace for getting to know your Creator, and self-empowerment for taking control of your own life. It teaches you how to be effective in every aspect of your life, including your career. Most importantly, A Truly Successful Life helps you to prioritize what is truly important in your life.
