The Principle of the Path

I want to promote a book that I have found very insightful and easy to read, easy to understand, and leads me say it’s “one of the best books I’ve read!” This book explains the key to living successfully! It is called The Principle of the Path, by Andy Stanley. This book explains how to get from where you are in life, to where you want to be in life. Here’s what one person says about this book: “If you’re ready to break the bad habits, bad behaviours, and bad decisions that have been leading you into trouble, you need Andy Stanley’s The Principle of the Path.”

Consider the following: Why is it that smart people with admirable life goals often end up far from where they intended to be? Why is it that so many people start out with a clear mental picture of where they want to be relationally, financially, and professionally and yet years later find themselves far from their desired destination? Why do our expectations about our own future often go unmet?

What if you knew the answer to those questions? What if there was one simple idea that explained why so many people get lost along the way? Andy Stanley says: “Once you embrace the ‘principle of the path’ it will empower you to identify and follow that path that leads to your desired destination. And this same principle will enable you to avoid life-wasting detours along the way.”

This book is full of biblical wisdom and truth – and it’s written with humour! I recommend it to anyone wanting to be successful and content in life!

5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; 6 in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight. (Pr.3:5-6)
