Why are we here? What is the meaning of existence? What truly matters the most in life? We have all felt the looming presence of these questions, but it's never easy to examine our life's path and its meaning. To begin finding answers, we must start by exploring our own internal ideals, values, and beliefs. Offering the unique perspective of respected analyst and author James Hollis, What Matters Most helps readers learn to appreciate (even be amazed by) events unfolding within us, even as the external world creates constant struggles.
Taking a fresh look at the concept of happiness, Hollis encourages readers to learn to tolerate ambiguity, embrace growth over security, engage spiritual crisis, and acknowledge the shadow of mortality. Providing inspiring wisdom and personal reflections to address our deepest worries, What Matters Most yields far more than mere self-help cliches. Hollis guides readers in uncovering the heart of the matter, to discover what it means to truly live life to its fullest, most meaningful state - as fully engaged citizens of the world - and to risk being who we really are.
