Today we live in a culture that says, “My life should be easy and work well for me.” This attitude, called entitlement, influences our most important institutions: family, business, church, and government. Its effects are devastating, contributing to relational problems, work ethic issues, and emotional struggles. It comes down to this: People are not getting to where they want to go, because they don’t know how to do life the Hard Way. Their entitlement keeps them from tackling challenges and finding success. This audiobook provides principles and tools for change. It teaches people the skills of learning to tackle and resolve matters that are difficult, rather than avoiding them, giving up too quickly, or hoping someone else will do it for them. The habits gleaned from this audiobook will lead to success in the listener's relationships, finances, self-care, and work. When the listener faces what must be faced, he stands to meet his goals and resolve his struggles better and faster. In that sense, this audiobook brings a great deal of hope and positivity to a tough arena of life. The Hard Way is simple: it is facing any challenge required to accomplish what matters most. Anything worth doing will have a cost of being hard to do. But when we learn how to do the right things, and push through the pain that comes, we stand a much better chance of success. Sometimes trials are put upon us, such as a troubled marriage, a failing business, or an illness. At other times they are opportunities where we need to take a risk, such as starting a part-time business, or simply being vulnerable with someone. At still other times they are problems that must be faced, such as a troubled teen, a conversation we have been avoiding, or a team at work that needs to be restructured. Whatever the context, the Hard Way is the first and best way to approach a good outcome.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“The growing entitlement mentality in this country is completely toxic, slowly eating away at our spirits like acid. I’ve said for years that if you want to win, you’ve got to take responsibility. You’ve got to leave the cave, kill something, and then you can drag it home! Personal responsibility may be the hard way, but it’s the only way.” Dave Ramsey, New York Times bestselling author and nationally syndicated radio show host
“There is no such thing as ‘the easy button,’ but my friend John Townsend delivers real remedies to today’s entitlement mentality. The Entitlement Cure is a game changer.” Dr. Kevin Leman, New York Times bestselling author
The Entitlement Cure is a powerful book that gives people a true roadmap to success. If you want a better life, starting right now, buy this book.” Daniel G. Amen, MD, author of Change Your Brain, Change Your Life
