“Happiness in life is about more than what’s in your bank account or stock portfolio. Success is more than achieving power and respect. Each one of us has a responsibility for changing the world in a positive, significant, and enduring way—and the challenge is less daunting than you might think.
In this hopeful and motivating book, author Ken Dychtwald shares inspiring stories of people who have made a difference and points us to resources that will enable us to do the same. All it takes is an investment in head, heart, and spirit. For those of us who find ourselves asking, “Now what?” A New Purpose has the answers.
A New Purpose challenges readers with a paradigm shifting view of what matters most in the second half of life, redefining the way America views success, employment, retirement, and living a significant life.
Success can be looked at in different ways from different points in your life. As a child, it was pleasing your parents; in high school, it may have been about academic achievement and popularity; as a working adult, success is often represented by earning a good salary and the respect of others. But what about in the years after your initial goals have been pursued? What constitutes success then? Leisure or legacy?
For more and more people, it’s about making things better and about improving the world-large or small-in a lasting way. It’s about changing the community, the nation, the political landscape, and the environment. A New Purpose focuses on why readers should commit to having a lasting impact on the world and how they can do it. Ken Dychtwald addresses finances, locations, and realities of life, and includes inspiring stories of people who have made a difference while providing the resources to enable the reader to do the same. Men and women will identify their strengths, become inspired, and find themselves galvanized into action.”
