Book Recommendation: Five Wishes by Gay Hendricks

Five_wishes_book
I read this book, which is subtitled, “How Answering One Simple Question Can Make Your Dreams Come True,” when it came out in 2007.  That year was a tremendous time of transformation for me personally.  I’d taken a major career step in going solo, and I’d resumed writing my book in earnest with the goal of publishing it – which I did the following year.

Anyone who knows me knows that I am a huge fan of self-inquiry.  I’ve been doing Q&A with myself, analyzing why and what for, ever since I can remember, and especially with purpose since I was a teenager.  (My nature has always been rather socratic, I suppose!)  Hendricks’ book grabbed my attention because of that resonance and then further influenced my own mission.

But that’s not the only reason why I recommend the book.  This brief book is easy to read and digest.  It begins with a story – a very relatable scene – in which the author meets a stranger who, with his consent, asks him a big question that changes his life.

Throughout the rest of the book, Hendricks shows you how he has applied this question to 5 areas of  his life… hence his 5 wishes.  How can this one question help 5 wishes come true for him?  Well, you’ll have to read the book to find out since I don’t want to give anything away.  However, I will say that by the end, you’ll have been introduced to a pretty simple and yet powerful way to turn wishes into goals.
