Finding Success at Work and in Relationships in a Shortcut World
Now available in softcover!
In a culture that encourages shortcuts and irresponsibility, The Entitlement Cure provides principles and skills to help you both navigate life with those around you who have an entitlement mindset and identify areas in your own life where you are stuck in “easy way” living. Dr. Townsend will show you how to become successful, resolve obstacles in life, and help those around you.
Today we live in a culture that says, “Life should be easy and work well.” This attitude, called entitlement, influences our most important institutions: family, business, church, and government. Its devastating effects contribute to relational problems, work ethic issues, and emotional struggles.
It comes down to this: People are not getting to where they want to go, because they don’t know how to do life the hard way. Entitlement keeps them from tackling challenges and finding success.
But whether you are struggling with your own sense of entitlement or dealing with someone who acts entitled, The Entitlement Cure will equip you to turn away from a life of mediocrity to a life of engagement, satisfaction, and joy.
Drawing from his experience as a counselor and leadership consultant, renowned psychologist and New York Times bestselling author Dr. John Townsend explores strategies for fighting entitlement, such as:
- Take a meaningful risk every week
- Find ways to minimize regret
- Grasp the value of keeping inconvenient commitments
- Understand why saying “I don’t know” is the first step toward success
Ultimately, The Entitlement Cure provides practical tools for a life of success that works for anyone.
What People Are Saying about The Entitlement Cure
“The growing entitlement mentality in this country is completely toxic, slowly eating away at our spirits like acid. I’ve said for years that if you want to win, you’ve got to take responsibility. You’ve got to leave the cave, kill something, and then you can drag it home! Personal responsibility may be the hard way, but it’s the only way.”
DAVE RAMSEY, New York Times bestselling author and nationally syndicated radio show host
“There are no shortcuts to anywhere worth getting to. The Entitlement Cure is full of wisdom, truth, empowerment, and principles that will help you and those around you actually achieve success. I’ve been waiting for this book and could not put it down. It is a new word for our generation.”
CHRISTINE CAINE, bestselling author and founder, The A21 Campaign
“There are so many real-life examples based on John’s experience and expertise that reinforce why the hard way is the best way and God’s intended way for our success. This is more than a book to read, it’s an engaging conversation with a ‘friendly’ expert.”
