Sweet Spot : Finding the Place Where Life Works Best (Hardcover) (John Townsend)
about this item
God designed us to have full, rich, and meaningful lives in our relationships and our activities. This doesn't mean we will live pain-free or problem-free, but it does mean that we all have a God-given potential for deep enjoyment. However, most of us are not experiencing our potential because either we don't know how to get there, or we encounter obstacles. So we settle for an okay existence instead of the one we could have.Sweet Spot presents the keys Dr. Townsend has discovered that show readers how to make great strides toward reaching their deep enjoyment. The secret is in finding the intersection between three aspects of life: passion, skill, and meaning. This intersection is what Townsend calls our 'sweet spot.' We operate out of our sweet spot when we feel passion for an area of life, when we become practiced and skilled at doing it, and when we find deep and satisfying meaning in it. When we operate out of our sweet spot, we become more of the person God intended us to be.Readers will learn how to take the steps that will lead to finding their sweet spot in any area of life, including marriage, dating, parenting, friendships, career, and leadership, and even in emotional struggles.
