Passion Is More Than a Feeling
In Joyce's latest message, she issues the challenge to embrace life with passion. However, she cautions that passion must also have purpose.
Through her classic style, Joyce explains where to find the origin of what motivates and drives people to live the way they do. She will help you understand how to determine your purpose and discover the passion to fuel it.
Each chapter offers timeless insights from Joyce about why people are placed here on Earth and what role they are to play. She offers I DARE YOU action points like "Check Your Motives," "Do What You Love," and "Dream Big!" with lists of tips for rising to the challenge.
Joyce also explores ways people keep themselves distracted from their purposes and extinguish passion. She identifies eight ways individuals waste time:
Trying to change what only God can
Each of these habits is a burdensome, nonproductive way to spend your time, pulling you away from what should be your focus.
By discovering what invigorates and inspires your mind, body, and spirit; by finding direction and focus for your finances, your emotions, and your energies, you will receive the determination to fully realize your potential.
Joyce dares you to try, and she will show you how.
Christian television personality and bestselling author Meyer (Battlefield of the Mind; Approval Addiction) turns her prolific pen to living life with passion. It's time to take action and make your life count, she says. In typical Meyer fashion, she spends the rest of the book informing readers how to do just that: Make a decision to be an excellent person; If you really cannot stand your life, then do something about it; and Make up your mind regarding what you believe, have God's words to back it up, and don't ever back down. She first describes how passion and purpose work together, then provides directives on how to pursue that passion with purpose, particularly in areas such as spirit, mind, emotions, finances and the physical body. Declarative sentences that get right to the point are a Meyer trademark, and fans won't be disappointed here. Pithy pull-out aphorisms and I Dare You sidebars help readers break down the concrete steps of dreaming big. Meyer's message is sound, if unoriginal--Let's be determined to fulfill our purpose--and her method stern yet loving. Fans will enjoy this enthusiastic manual for Christian living. (Sept. 4)
