Of course you want to have a successful and fulfilling life – who doesn’t? So the question is, where should one begin? Should we measure our success and fulfillment by talent, or popularity, or a large bank account? Some might say by many friends, a wonderful family, a collection of valuable possessions, or great health. Or, in a challenging economy, is the fact that we are lucky enough to be collecting a pay check a measure of success? Certainly one could argue that any or all of those things are important, and do contribute to a successful and fulfilling life.
However, defining a wonderful, successful and fulfilling life is actually much simpler than one might think: it is a life filled with the realization of dreams and goals, of purpose and contentment, of joy and celebration. Many of us spend our lives searching for the same things: achievement, solace, and happiness. Unfortunately, few ever find that which they seek.
A person could spend years studying the philosophies and writings of many great teachers and leaders. One could read the Bible, the Koran, the Bhagavad Gita, the Tao Te Ching, and have listened to the teachings of many spiritual men and women. One could have examined the books that dictate the principles of the world’s cultures and political systems. And one would find that through all of these ideals, one pattern consistently emerges: we are all here to enjoy life, to be compassionate towards others, to love and to forgive, learn from our mistakes, and to find satisfaction, peace, and bliss.
12 Principles of Success & Fulfillment contains twelve chapters detailing how to experience success and fulfillment in areas such as health, finance, and relationships. It explains how to remove the road blocks to happiness, and how to achieve freedom from fears and limiting beliefs. It can be read from start to finish in a week, however, I recommend reading and studying one principle each month over a twelve month period.
If you’ve been looking for a way to steer yourself toward a more successful and wonderful life, a more purposeful and enjoyable one, this book will be a great tool to help you do that.
Here’s what people are saying about the book:
After reviewing the book, Dr. Marilyn A. Hirth, Associate Professor of Educational Leadership at Purdue University, had this to say: “The 12 Principles of Success and Fulfillment is the most down-to-earth book on living a better life that I’ve ever read. You feel as if Dr. Holevinsky is sitting in the room with you, sharing his insights and knowledge in way that is easily understood and applied. Once you start reading you don’t want to put the book down until you finish! This is a must read for anyone who wants a clear, concise plan for living a better life.”
“12 Principles of Success & Fulfillment paves a thorough opportunity for one to connect with themselves and break down “poor” choices in life. All 12 chapters utilize strategies for “peace” in life thus rendering “success & fulfillment.” Dr. Holevinsky is a true professional giving the reader a book that one can easily understand and read in “steps” to allow for the utmost understanding and nourishment of the mind and body.” Jessica Huggett, MS Ed., ECSE/CDS
And this, from former college president Dr. Bruce Aldrich: “If you’re looking for a way to have more success with your goals and life objectives in areas such as health, mental stamina, and attracting the right people and opportunities, read this book. Dr. Holevinsky discusses the important ‘facts of life,’ and presents them in a wonderfully readable format. The book is well written, easy to read, conversational, clever, and comprehensive. I thoroughly enjoyed it.”
Finally, the first review from Amazon.com: “I was truly amazed at how easily the reading flows. Everything is spelled out clearly, yet simply. Dr. Holevinsky definitely has a way with words. His work is truly motivational, and I would encourage anyone to read this book and deeply consider its message. Any one of us CAN become a successful and fulfilled individual, especially with such an easy road map to follow. Thank you, Dr. Holevinsky, for providing us with this eloquent yet efficient guide to making our own lives better. I look forward to any future writings.” CP
