MAKING SENSE OUT OF LIFE'S TRIALS-
FINDING JOY IN YOUR JOURNEY
BY VICTOR LEE
By Denise J. Matthews
Victor Lee holds up the mirror that makes us face our innermost fear: we are what we have chosen to become. Such a simple truth, yet one that few are willing to accept, let alone act upon.
We are all searching for our purpose; that which gives our lives meaning. Many of us will never find it because we view ourselves through self-limiting eyes that convince us we can't do any better than our current state. Lee's book encourages us to get out of our own way; to take that deep look within, and if we don't like what we see, to make a decision to change. "All the power we will ever need is as close as our decisions and the actions we are willing to take."
It is a message some will not want to hear. It advocates responsibility for self and the abandonment of victim-based thinking. It is often not our circumstances, but our reaction to them that defines us. Reinventing ourselves requires that we make the conscious decision to do something different, and then take one step in that new direction.
Is it time for a change in your life? Reading Victor Lee's book can be your first step in that new direction.
