Unfortunately, manhood does not come with an owner's manual. Author Tom Massey PhD. offers ten powerful principles for men to consider as they navigate through their journey of life.
Norman, OK (PRWEB) January 8, 2007 -- Tom Massey PhD., author and dynamic life-skills coach, encourages every man to become a "difference-maker" in his new book "Ten Commitments for Men" (Robert D. Reed Publishers, 2006, ISBN 9781931741590). Massey's 20+ years of experience in the field of optimizing performance has translated into speaking to over 250 groups per year, and four previous books on personal development.
Thoreau once said, "Most men live in quiet desperation"; Massey sees something worse happening in today's society. "Many men live in quiet resignation that their lives are not going to get any better, and they simply accept the powerlessness." Massey's new book is a heartfelt call to all men in these challenging times, to raise their standard of living by following a proven roadmap to a purpose-driven life.
"Ten Commitments for Men" offer ten life-changing principles that help men put their lives together, similar to arranging pieces of a puzzle. Each chapter introduces one of the commitments, and uses stories and illustrations to convey the message and broaden the reader's perspective. A set of questions end each chapter providing men with practical guidelines and ideas to transform learning into action.
By exploring a wide variety of topics, Massey offers wise support for men as they practice the commitments. His understanding of the difficulties men face is based on years experiencing the same challenges, and readers feels his kinship.
Through integrating the commitments into daily life, Massey assures men that positive changes will happen. "Men will learn to harness the power of their word to create personal credibility, they will be inspired to explore their passions and take needed risks to accomplish their dreams, they will build harmonious relationships and enhance their quality of life by improving their health, and they will let go of regrets and grow to new levels of personal performance."
This simple yet profound handbook applies to all men, from business executives, to fathers/grandfathers and young adults. The individuals who grasp the notion of self-reflection and are willing to put in the effort to do the work are guaranteed, according to Massey, to rise to levels of success and significance beyond their wildest dreams.
