Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0310330521, Hardcover)

Today we live in a culture that says, “My life should be easy and work well for me.”This attitude, called entitlement, influences our most important institutions:  family, business, church, and government.  Its effects are devastating, contributing 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. Their entitlement keeps them from tackling challenges and finding success. 

This book provides principles and tools for change.  It teaches people the skills of learning to tackle and resolve matters that are difficult, rather than avoiding them, giving up too quickly, or hoping someone else will do it for them.  The habits gleaned from this book will lead to success in the reader’s relationships, finances, self-care, and work.   When the reader faces what must be faced, he stands to meet his goals and resolve his struggles better and faster.  In that sense, this book brings a great deal of hope and positivity to a tough arena of life. 

The Hard Way is simple:  it is facing any challenge required to accomplish what matters most.   Anything worth doing will have a cost of being hard to do.  But when we learn how to do the right things, and push through the pain that comes, we stand a much better chance of success. 

Sometimes trials are put upon us, such as a troubled marriage, a failing business, or an illness.  At other times they are opportunities where we need to take a risk, such as starting a part-time business, or simply being vulnerable with someone.  At still other times they are problems that must be faced, such as a troubled teen, a conversation we have been avoiding, or a team at work that needs to be restructured.   Whatever the context, the Hard Way is the first and best way to approach a good outcome.
