Can a book change your life? Yes, at least it can play a part in your journey of learning and growth. But there is a catch–you have to actually apply what you learned.
Tens of billions of dollars are spent every year on books, education, and programs about self improvement, spiritual growth, recovery, and related topics.
How much of that investment is translated into action to change people‘s lives?
“The art of reading is in great part that of acquiring a better understanding of life from one’s encounter with it in a book.” (André Maurois)
A problem, however, is that many books focus on theory rather than practical application. Few are written in a practical, how-to style showing specific steps to take on a daily basis to find more peace, joy, and purpose in our lives. They may present interesting high level advice, but not complement that with detailed guidance on how to actually apply those lessons in our life. A good read, perhaps, but probably not life-changing.
“…to learn and not to do is really not to learn. To know and not to do is really not to know.” (Stephen R. Covey)
The book STEPS: A Daily Journey to a Better Life will help you apply practical techniques to improve your life. You can learn through proven best practices, clear examples, and personal stories that apply to challenges you face on a daily basis. The book includes techniques to help you make improvements in the areas of money, work, marriage and kids, dealing with tough times, and many other aspects of daily living.
The intent of STEPS is to focus on practical application in areas that can help transform lives. Does the book do that? Here is what some people are saying:
“Many books provide inspirational stories, but have little practical value. In STEPS, Steve Ward has written a book that can change lives.”
“Steve brings forth a new voice and an exciting message to convey practical, yet powerful, concepts that could transform your life.”
“The practical applications throughout the book are fantastic, and I would recommend it to anyone!”
To support this learning process, there is also a companion Life Application Guide to help you:
- Prioritize and select areas which will bring you the most peace, joy, and purpose.
- Work out how to utilize these principles most effectively in your daily life.
- If desired, experience the STEPS material in a group setting as well as individually.
“Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Willing is not enough; we must do.” (Johann Wolfgang von Goethe)
If you will take the time to read a good book and apply the principles you learn, you will make positive progress, one day at a time. You CAN improve your life, starting today!
Are you willing to believe, truly believe, that you can improve your life?
