    Clear look at why you should align your life

    If you experience a lack of connection between what you love doing - what you are genetically and physically programmed to do - and your work, the misalignment can make you miserable. Author Michael Ray contends that life doesn¿t have to be that way. He guides you through some soul-searching steps to put you in touch with that one thing that really brings you joy. He calls this your 'highest goal' - the quest that drives you to fulfill your purpose. He explains that you can think creatively, discover your highest goal, and steadily follow a path that leads to satisfaction, joy and meaning. We recommend this book to readers who are interested in self-help literature Ray does a good job of explaining how to define your highest goal and get started on the path to achieving it.
