Reviews - What do customers think about Heroic Living?
Spiritual Technology for Modern Life Mar 13, 2010
I heard the author speak a few weeks ago, at a Catholic Business Association meeting and was very impressed. The central idea is to synthesize modern business strategy-planning with spiritual guidance, such as Ignatius of Loyola's prayerful exercises. The result is an impressive technology for living a life in both the practical and the spiritual.
NOt your run of the mill leadership book Mar 2, 2010
A practical integration of spirituality and personal living. Most of think we are self aware, but are we? we think we love, but do we? we think we practice ingenuity, but do we? and finally, can we say we do life heroically?...A definite "what to" book.
Great Book For Self Reflection Aug 31, 2009
As Lowney says, it is not a book that will tell you what to do. You have to take the book and work with it. I took his advice - I read the book, took notes, and reflected. It helped me to clarify my vision, mission, values and sense of purpose. This is truly a book where you get out of it what you give - it has made a difference in my life and I recommend it without reservation.
Refreshing and Inspiring Read! Aug 12, 2009
Well-written, concise and inspiring. Convinces a reader to step-off the treadmill of daily cares to take stock of one's fundamental values and priorities in order to live a better planned and meaningful future. A definite read for someone who wants a refreshed outlook in the midst of daily stress.
Well worth the read for those who need a reason to push forward May 15, 2009
Heroism isn't about fame and fortune. It's about doing what most people fail to do. "Heroic Living: Discover Your Purpose and Change the World" is a guide to better living through finding what should be driving one's purpose in life. Drawing from Ignatian spirituality practices inspires readers to make long term changes, improve their lives, and find what drives their spirituality. "Heroic Living" is well worth the read for those who need a reason to push forward.
