Also, the author insists and asserts that real fulfillment comes from helping others. It is for each person to realize how they get fulfillment in life. There are billions of people who get fulfillment from discovering the mysteries of nature or from athletic competition or from accumulating wealth or power or from composing music, poetry, writing, investigating, enforcing the law. The author strongly feels that fulfillment is attained by knowing the names of the people who will be affected and who would benefit from our contribution. What nonsense. The president, judges, law enforcement officers, military personnel, doctors, lawyers and billions of people get satisfaction when they feel they are helping or advancing humanity without ever knowing the names of the people who are directly affected.
This book is bunk and I suspect other books by the author are also bunk and useless. Anyone who feels he has found the universal truth (the answer to Life's great question) that applies to all of us - i.e., that true fulfillment comes from helping others and to help others we first need to identify who will benefit from our altruism is an arrogant, pretentious, pompous, and a confused person and deceitful too.
Margaret H. Greenberg is the co-author of the Amazon bestseller Profit from the Positive: Proven Leadership Strategies to Boost Productivity and Transform Your Business (McGraw-Hill)
Great book and great team.
I like the philosophy behind the assessment, but I can’t get to working through the actual assessment part if the book because there is a problem with there hidden code mechanism. As you can see from the photo I scratched the silver box and got a scratched up nothing. I’ll update the review if I ever get a code (I’m not going to waste scratching off the second box). If I never get a code, I’ll drop the review to a 1.
This book is full of ideas and suggestions as to how you can make your life meaningful or rather how you can feel and perceive your life has meaning and that’s what life is really all about.
One hopes that by reading this book you too find your contribution.
