Art of Significance : Achieving the Level Beyond Success (Hardcover) (Dan Clark)
About this item
What would you rather have?conventional success or a high level beyond success? Dan Clark, one of the world’s leading inspirational speakers and leadership trainers, vehemently opposes the conventional wisdom about success. He believes it’s tragic and superficial to build our careers and personal lives around getting more money, bigger houses, cooler toys, and fancier job titles. What’s it all worth in the end? How many outwardly successful people still feel empty inside? Clark has spent decades traveling around the world, interviewing the famous and powerful; consulting with presidents and generals and sheikhs and corporate leaders; creating a multimillion-dollar business; and (before any of the above) overcoming a paralyzing injury. All those experiences have convinced him that the happiest people in the world don’t pursue success at all. Instead, they pursue significance?and find that success comes along as part of the package. What’s the difference between success and significance? As you’ll learn in this powerful, myth-shattering book . . .
- The successful get what they want; the significant want what they get.
- The successful think wealth flows to them; the significant know that wealth flows through them, to bless those around them.
- The successful earn financial independence, influence, and popularity; the significant earn financial independence, influence, popularity, admiration, loyalty, and respect.
- The successful compare themselves against others; the significant compete only against themselves.
- The successful are quickly forgotten when they die; the significant leave a long-lasting legacy.
We?re socialized from birth to pursue success at all costs. Day after day, we build our careers and our personal lives around getting what we want. But Dan Clark thinks we?re missing something important: the difference between success and significance.
For instance, successful people think wealth flows to them. Significant people know wealth flows through them. The successful say ?knowledge is power.? The significant realize that knowledge has no heart?that reason leads to conclusions but emotion leads to action. Clark offers a unique blend of psychological insights, historical examples, military stories, incredible personal experiences, and other material from his popular motivational speeches and leadership training. In a series of brief, emotionally charged essays, he answers essential questions such as ?How do we carve out meaningful legacies?? and ?How do we bring ourselves and those around us true, lasting satisfaction??
This book will help readers improve not merely their financial and career performance, but their human performance as well.
