He argues that when you understand your significance in the world and to others, you see the purpose that you were created for. When you understand your perspective, you can see the obstacles as stepping stones to better things instead of things to trip over. This book uses personal stories and research along with passages from the Bible.
What I liked the most about the book was the chapter about forgiveness and how it is the biggest favor that you can do for yourself. He explains that forgiving is not forgetting and it is not letting someone off the hook for their behavior, but rather it is setting yourself free from the pain. It does not always lead to reconciliation between the parties, but it frees you from all the negativity. That was the chapter that meant the most to me and that I found the most helpful. You don't have to wait for the other party to apologize or do anything. Forgiveness is an action you take for yourself.

Being leery about books that can "help you find happiness" I chose to read this with skeptical eyes. I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised by what I read. I actually enjoyed reading this book. True, a book can not necessarily bring you happiness or even teach you how to be happy, but Moody does give you some wonderful ways to create a life that you can find happiness in. But, you have to be willing to do the work and take responsibility.
One of the most eye opening things for me happened right at the beginning and got me hooked. Most books that talk about faith and happiness just play issues off as "spiritual warfare." I LOVE what Moody says and it's actually the reason I kept reading, "While I am quick to affirm the reality of spiritual warfare, I also think spiritual warfare is cited as the reason for many things that have absolutely nothing to do with the spiritual realm." This...This is what kept me reading this book. He does not just blame spiritual warfare for our bumps in life.
I love Moody's realistic and practical approach in this book, but I also love the foundation in faith. If we don't know who or who's we are, we will never be happy.
If you wanted to use this book for your church curriculum or just for a small group of friends thee is even an 8 week study guide that you can use.
I highly recommend this book for everyone. EVERYONE.

How do you deal with yourself and what goes on around you? Between all our problems, our downfalls, our failures and how we deal with it is what Mr. Moody calls the I-factor. It’s not about placing us up high in how we see ourselves overall but about how you manage your life and the things that surround you. This book shows you how to do so.
But how do you get started to do so in finding your I-Factor? In this book Mr. Moody identifies three ways to find it inside of you. Those factors are identity, significance and perspective. Once you have figured this out you know who you are and what your identity is. From there you are setting the tone for your life.
Every so often you will see a gray box that has a condensed version of what you are reading. This one sums up the book for me. “You figured out who you really are… Often, before you can get down to the core of who you really are, you first have to strip away what you are not.”
What did I think about this book? I do see the value in some self-help books. Is this for everyone? This is probably not true. But if you are wanting to grow from the inside out and to the environment around you this is a good pick up. The questions at the end of the chapters and thoughts are a nice added touch.
