The Shift: Taking Your Life from Ambition to Meaning
The ShiftOCoa companion book to the movie of the same nameOCoillustrates how and why to make the move from ambition to meaning. Such a shift eliminates our feelings of separateness, illuminates our spiritual connectedness, and involves moving from the ego-directed morning into the afternoon of life where everything is primarily influenced by purpose. As we contemplate leaving the morning of our life, where ego has played a commanding role, and entering the afternoon (and evening), where meaning and purpose replace ambition and struggle, we may encounter unexpected occurrences that accompany this new direction. ItOCOs almost a universal law that weOCOll experience a fall of some kind. Yet these falls or low points provide the energy we need to move away from ego and into a life of meaning and purpose. The Shift doesnOCOt mean that we lose our drive and ambition; it signifies that we become ambitious about something new. We make a commitment to living a life based on experiencing meaning and feeling purposeful, rather than never-ending demands and false promises that are the trademark of the egoOCOs agenda. As Dr. Wayne W. Dyer so eloquently reveals in these pages, we all have the choice to shift our lives from ambition to meaning . . . and thereby complete our return to the Source that created us."

I loved "The Shift" and have become a fan of Dr Wayne Dyer. This book talks about is the purpose and meaning of life. It questions where we come from and talks about just "being". Good place to start on a self-discovery journey. Read full review
