On Our Shelves Now
The #1 "New York Times "bestselling author of "The Walk" and "The Christmas Box, " Richard Paul Evans has met hundreds of thousands of people and heard many of their stories in his travels over the past two decades. Most of the people he meets are hungry for inspiration; they love his novels because his characters are also searching for meaning and understanding.
"The Four Doors" is Evans's message to those who seek inspiration in their lives. It began as a talk he gave on the spur of the moment, and over the course of ten years, it has evolved into a message he has shared with successful business people, students, and even addicts and prisoners. It includes stories his readers have told him, stories about great achievers who overcame hardships, and stories about his own struggle growing up in a large family with financial difficulties and a suicidal mother, and about his diagnosis of Tourette's Syndrome later in life. These inspiring stories are woven through his identification and careful explanation of the four doors to a more fulfilling life:
BELIEVE THERE' S A REASON YOU WERE BORN
FREE YOURSELF FROM LIMITATION
MAGNIF Y YOUR LIFE
DEVELOP A LOVE-CENTERED MAP
Evans believes that we all want to know the meaning of our lives. In "The Four Doors," he shows how even the most quiet life can be full of purpose and joy, if we choose to take that first step over the threshold.
