Book Description

March 29 2011
Not where you want to be? 
Wondering how to get there?

Why is it that smart people with admirable life goals often end up far from where they intended to be? Why is it that so many people start out with a clear mental picture of where they want to be relationally, financially, and professionally and yet years later
find themselves far from their desired destination? Why do our expectations about our own future often go unmet? 

What if you knew the answer to those questions? What if there was one simple idea that explained why so many people get lost along the way?

There is. It’s called the principle of the path. And not only does it explain the disappointment and regret that characterize the lives of so many, it provides a way for you to be the exception.

As you are about to discover, the principle of the path is at work in your life every single day. Once embraced, this compelling principle will empower you to identify and follow the path that leads to your desired destination. And this same principle will enable you to avoid life-wasting detours along the way.

“If you’re ready to break the bad habits, bad behaviors, and bad decisions that have been leading you into trouble, you need Andy Stanley’s The Principle of the Path.”
–Dave Ramsey, host of The Dave Ramsey Show
and best-selling author of The Total Money Makeover

Format:Hardcover
The Principle of the Path
Overview
I grew up believing in fate ' that whatever happened, it was meant to be. The Principle of the Path by Andy Stanley presents an interesting argument that each decision we make places us on a path for the rest of our lives. It puts us in the driver seat of our own lives and allows us to feel some sense of control over our successes and failures.
This book is an excellent as Andy intertwines many of his own personal stories with the key messages of his book. His language is easy to read and his stories bring his theories to life. The book includes the following topics
' Why bad things happen to smart people
' Should have seen that coming
' The heart of the matter
' Getting help from your friends
' Attention retention
' Road Closed
Greatest Lesson
The greatest lesson I learned from this book is that we must have the foresight to consider the long-term impacts of our decisions. Each decision is not an isolated event, but rather one additional step on our life plan. The book offers some wonderful advice about how to select and stay on the right path throughout life. For example, Andy suggests that you should become friends with individuals who are further down the path you want to be on and seek advice from them on how they got there. This is much more effective than surrounding yourself with friends who are at the same stage as you and may not have the wisdom and experience to help you move forward in your path.
'You will never reach your full potential without tapping in to the wisdom of others' (page 133)
Recommendation
I recommend The Principle of the Path for anyone (young or old) who is looking to understand why they have ended up on the path they are on.

5.0 out of 5 stars It makes you think... Oct. 4 2010
Format:Hardcover
The content is common sense... but that kind of common sense that we sometimes ignore. I found that it was a excellent reminder that each of our actions take us in a certain direction and if you don't like where you are... you need to do something differently. I found it addressed what to do when you don't know what the long term consequences of your actions could be as well has a reminder for all those little daily decisions that we know where they lead but do them anyways. I found it inspiring and an easy read that I found myself nodding the whole way through.

3.0 out of 5 stars A READABLE AND COMMON SENSE BOOK May 15 2011
By S. Morehouse TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
The Principle of the Path is not rocket science or even a brilliant new way of looking at the Will of God. What it is though, is a very readable and thoughtful book about choosing the right paths in life. If you have a high school or college or grad in your family this year, this is the book I would suggest getting for them to read.

He talks about how good intentions aren't the fuel that's needed to reach the destinations we choose. His premise is that the path determines the outcome. For example if you're on a path that is leading to an unhealthy lifestyle, that's the destination you will reach no matter how much you may want to be healthy. You need to choose another path, i.e. a healthy lifestyle to get the desired destination.

The rest of the book fleshes out that premise. There are plenty of biblical stories and illustrations that help to prove his point. One part that particularly resonated with me was his statement that "Divine direction begins with unconditional submission. Not information" (pg.88). I think most of us would prefer the information first but that's not always how it works.

Ultimately there's nothing new in this book especially if you've been a Christian for a long time and have done a lot of reading on finding the will of God. However, what makes this book worth picking up is its readability and common sense approach. There's something here for everyone who needs help in finding the right path.
