Find Your Strongest Life by Marcus Buckingham
The book's most thought-provoking statement: Women are less satisfied with their lives than they were forty years ago. How can this be? Women have far more opportunities today, better education and better paying jobs than their 1960s counterparts. You wonder at this disparity--and keep turning pages. The author states his case with fascinating statistics, an easy-to-follow style, and practical steps to move you toward a stronger life.
I took the Strong Life test. You are measured on nine life roles, to determine consistent patterns of thinking, feeling, and behaving that point toward the core of who you are. I felt I was all across the board--the results would say I'm hopelessly scattered. Not so. My life lead and supporting roles came through with surprising accuracy.
This book has challenged me to apply these principles to live the strongest life I can to the glory of God.
