It’s a book a friend and favorite author of mine, Dan Millman (The Way of the Peaceful Warrior, Everyday Enlightenment, etc.), recommended to me. I’ve always admired Dan and his work for his ability to blend East and West with an ultimate focus on ACTION. And, now I know why he recommended this book to me: it’s an incredible manual on how to master ourselves and learn to take consistent, impeccable action.
Constructive Living is based on the fundamental notion that, although we can’t control our feelings, we CAN control our behaviors.
And, as a result, craft our ideal life. Or, as “Our behavior is controllable in a way that our feelings are not. There is a very special satisfaction for the Artist of Living who works within life’s limits to produce a fine self-portrait. The more control we develop over our actions, the more chance we have of producing a self we can be proud of.”says so poetically:
That, in a nutshell, is what Constructive Living is all about.
I have no doubt you’ll enjoy this book. It’s a quick read—only 120 pages—and I’m excited to share some of my favorite Big Ideas with you now!
