The Entitlement Cure: Finding Success In Doing Hard Things The Right Way, by John Townsend
- Author: John Townsend
A growing epidemic in our culture today is the entitlement problem. It hinges on the statement, "My life should be easy and work well for me." This attitude is affecting our most valuable institutions: family, business, church, and government. The devastating effects are leading to relational problems, work ethic issues, and deep emotional struggles.
The core of the problem is that people are not getting where they want to go, because they have no idea how to do life the hard way. Their entitlement hinders them from confronting challenges and reaping true success.
This book provides principles and tolls for change. It teaches people the skills of learning to face and resolve matters that are difficult, rather than avoiding them, giving up too easily, or hoping someone else will do it for them. The habits gained from this book will lead to success in the reader's relationships, finances, self-care, and work. When readers determine to face what must be faced, they will stand to meet their goals and resolve struggles more effectively. In that sense, this book brings a great deal of hope and optimism to a tough arena of life.
The Hard Way is simple: it is facing any challenge required to accomplish what matters most. Anything worth doing will have a cost of being hard to do. But when we learn how to do the right things, and push through the pain that comes, we stand a much better chance of success.
Sometimes trials are put upon us, such as a troubled marriage, a failing business, or an illness. At other times they are opportunities where we need to take a risk, such as starting a part-time business, or simply being vulnerable with someone. At still other times they are problems that must be faced, such as a troubled teen, a conversation we have been avoiding, or a team at work that needs to be restructured. Whatever the context, the Hard Way is the first and best way to approach a good outcome.
