The Power of Three
Discovering What Really Matters in Life
By Norman Drummond
Norman Drummond explains why good things really do come in threes, setting out a challenge to live a fuller life through establishing the right personal values, sharing solid principles and finally urging us to pursue the three core Christian virtues of faith, hope and love.
Good things come in threes.All too often we end up tearing ourselves apart, losing our way: mind, body and spirit work against each other, rather than together. We know in our hearts that this is not how life should be.
How has this happened? What is it in modern life that seems to make it so hard to live in balance between work and home, family and friends? Why is it so difficult to combine ambition with satisfaction, to achieve our goals without losing a realistic awareness of our limitations? What does it take to rediscover how life is meant to be lived - and how we can build on that to change the world around us for good?In THE POWER OF THREE Norman Drummond draws together a coherent response to these tough questions from a wide pool of experience. He outlines, firstly, the three wisdoms that help you work out who you are and where you should be heading; secondly, three principles which will guide you as you engage constructively to change the world around you; and thirdly, the three core values that must underpin everything if we are to truly make a difference.
