“Some heavy lifting will be involved: the psychological heavy lifting of adopting a new attitude and a new vision of life and the practical heavy lifting of manifesting that attitude and that vision in the real world,” writes Eric Maisel of his newest book Life Purpose Boot Camp. “That amounts to a lot, but the reward is the highest prize available to you: an authentic life.”
Eric Maisel stresses that no life purpose can exist until we step back and consciously identify, embrace, and implement the ones that we choose. Further, there is no one meaning of life but rather a multitude of subjective meanings, and that there is no purpose to life but rather a multitude of subjective life purposes. Life Purpose Boot Camp provides the framework and tools readers need to sort out their life purposes and to make meaning based on their personal values and principles.
Eric Maisel, PhD, is a licensed psychotherapist and the author of more than 40 books including Mastering Creative Anxiety, Brainstorm, Coaching the Artist Within, and Rethinking Depression. He writes on a wide variety of subjects from the challenges of living the creative life to natural psychology and the new psychology of meaning. To learn more, visit: http://ericmaisel.com/
