Summary from Amazon: More than a decade ago, Richard Paul Evans gave a talk to an auditorium full of students in Dayton, Ohio, about what he wished he had known at their age. The response that day was electric: the students took notes, cried, and, after a standing ovation, rushed up to the author to share with him their feelings and personal epiphanies. Since that initial presentation, he has given that talk hundreds of times and all around the world, in places as diverse as the Harvard Club and Sundance, the Utah State Penitentiary and Opryland—and to all kinds of groups, from recovering drug addicts to recently graduated Ivy League MBAs.
Now, for the first time, the wisdom and insight that Richard Paul Evans has imparted to thousands is available in The Four Doors. This simple yet powerful approach to happiness is based on four essential components of joy and fulfillment: believing in your destiny, escaping internal captivity, leading a magnified life, and choosing a love-centered life. The Four Doors will set readers on the beginning of a journey to their own unique version of a meaningful life, providing life-changing inspiration to be shared with family and friends for generations.
My Review: I wasn't quite sure what to expect when I started reading this book. This book was not like a dry non-fiction book, or even like a talk. It is really well written and easy to follow. I really liked his doors to happiness, they made a lot of sense. Things like believing there was a reason that you were born, freeing yourself from limitations, magnifying your life, and developing a love-centered map for your life, I enjoyed learning about how to do each one of them. I think this book is one that almost everyone would enjoy and probably should read to learn how to live a happier life.
I was able to borrow a copy of this book from my local library.
