Always and Never: 20 Truths for a Happy Heart is an excellent resource book for twenty-somethings. This book is jam-packed with unique insights and all sorts of useful information from cover to cover! We often hear parents complain that their children didn't come with a handbook, and that's true. But now, there is a handbook for young people in their twenty-somethings.
Although Always and Never is a great book for young women, it was not written exclusively for women. Any young adult can benefit tremendously from reading this book twice. Yes, twice! Any great resource book for twenty-somethings deserves to be read two or three times. Why? Because you will find things the second time you read the book that you missed the first time. Likewise, you will find valuable insights the third time you read the book that you missed on the second reading.
Always and Never: 20 Truths for a Happy Heart is an action-based workbook with a journal to project and track your progress as you apply the truths found within. You are encouraged to take your time reading this book, bookmark it, take notes, and reread it as many times as you need to until you fully grasp the truths and principles written within.
Why Every Twenty-Something Should Have This Book
We live in unprecedented times, and things are changing each year. It seems that change is the only constant anymore. Still, there are certain principles and truths that remain unchanged despite these ever-changing times. Being aware of these truths, which are not fostered or taught in mainstream education or society, and knowing how to internalize these truths and apply them to your life, will make a world of difference in the future for you as you transition from young adult to adulthood.
This Book Can Help You Be Successful
In a way, successful is about balance. While it is true that everybody defines success in their own way, success is ultimately about happiness and contentment. Finding balance is what leads to happiness and contentment. Although this might be an oversimplification of this principle, you get the point.
Imagine working 70 or 80 hours a week to make the money you need to live the kind of life that you think will give you happiness. Perhaps you want a large family and lots of money for financial security. But how happy will you be if you never get to enjoy what you earn? Working those kinds of hours certainly means you'll have more money, but it also means you'll be sleeping and working pretty much all of the time.
Balance applies to other areas of our life as well. For example, we need to find balance in our relationships, social life, spiritual pursuits, personal goals, and all other areas of our lives! This is part of the reason why Always and Never: 20 Truths for a Happy Heart is a great resource book for twenty-somethings. You will learn at a young age how to find and establish balance in your life long before you reach your thirties, giving you a much better chance of attaining success.Resource Book For Twentysomethings
