Don’t be fooled by the slim size of this pocket guide to growth. The Laws of Lifetime Growth packs a lot of motivation and inspiration into its compact size, and proves that bigger isn’t always better.
Dan Sullivan, founder of The Strategic Coach, Inc., an organization that supports entrepreneurs in becoming more successful, teams with colleague Catherine Nomura to present ten simple yet profoundly effective laws for making your future bigger and better than your past. Each law comes with personal insight from the authors and their many successful clients, as well as tips on how to put the laws to work in your own life.
Some of the laws urge us to “Always Make Your Contribution Bigger Than Your Reward” or “Always Make your Questions Bigger Than Your Answers,” and I found these brief lessons powerful, more-so than many of the more detailed “laws” and “steps” put forth in other personal-growth books. Making the decision to grow as a person in all areas of life is the first commitment required by the authors, who then lead you on a journey of going beyond the comfort zone to greatness. One of the most profound lessons comes in the form of a simple question, which asks that we focus on what we need to become in order to get the things we want in life.
The Laws of Lifetime Growth is a fast and easy read, but it was meant to be read over and over again. It is a literal field guide to growing and transforming your life, relationships, career and finances, and one book that should be kept close at hand. I read it twice through in one sitting, and plan to use the lessons in my own life. These are definitely ten laws I look forward to obeying!
