From the Inside Flap

LifeMapping is a powerful tool that will help readers leave behind the things that have held them back in life, establish clear, realistic goals, and take positive, concrete steps to live the kind of life they?ve always wanted to live.

DO YOU KNOW WHERE YOU?RE GOING? Any time you hop in your car, it?s important to know where you?re going. But when you?re talking about your future?your life?s direction?knowing where you?re going takes on a whole new meaning.

We may want to move ahead spiritually, professionally, or in our interpersonal relationships. But many of us are speeding down the road of Life without much thought about our destination. We?re traveling fast, but without a map, and it?s hard to know where we?ll end up.

Leading counselor and best-selling author John Trent has developed a powerful tool that will help you map out a course for your life and get you to your destination. This fresh way of looking at your life involves taking a revealing review of the events and patterns in your past in order to develop a ?storyboard? of where you?ve been, where you are, and where you?re heading.

You?ll learn to overcome the roadblocks that have detoured you from deeper relationships, sidetracked your professional career, stunted your spiritual growth, and destroyed your self-confidence. Packed with practical, usable tools and thought-provoking study questions that will help you apply what you?ve learned, LifeMapping will enable you to re-write the story of your life by showing you where you want to go?and helping you get there!

Format: Paperback
This is a book that is not only read, but its exercises must be done to enjoy the real benefits of life mapping. I first "did" this book in 1998-99, and it prepped me for major changes in my life. I loaned it out, and could not find the book for years. I am excited to find this book has been released in paperback. While Mr. Trent is unabashed about his Christian faith, the tools in this book are sound and useful for anyone who has the good fortune to live and breathe, and who desires to understand where they have been, where they are, and where they are going. Highly recommended.

If you go to church regularly and believe your god will save you, then you will lap this stuff up.
But then, you probably don't need to read this book anyway. Just have faith.

If you are not religious, then I don't see anything at all for you in this book.
