Erik Rees, one of the key pastors at California’s Saddleback Community Church, offers readers the tools they need to make positive life choices that are in accordance with their unique gifts—helping them find genuine happiness and purpose.
Conventional psychological wisdom states that it takes approximately twenty-one days for a new behavior to become a habit. In Only You Can Be You, Erik Rees presents readers with an inspiring, three-week action plan for turning their lives around. Rees explains how common it is for people to feel as though they are just going through the motions of life and merely surviving. So many people feel increasingly insignificant as the days fly by since they are not living up to their potential, expressing their individuality freely, or feeling true, deep spiritual fulfillment. But it’s easier to charge out of this self-defeating rut than it seems, and it will only take about three weeks.
As Only You Can Be You teaches, it just takes a little self-reflection to get this process started. First, you’ll think through your own life-purpose statement, remind yourself daily of your spiritual importance, and learn how to make lifeaffirming, healthy choices that honor your own God-given, unique talents. With its easy-to-follow format filled with twenty-one daily principles, Only You Can Be You empowers readers to become fulfilled individuals who will definitely leave behind a lasting legacy of joy that will inspire others.
