Why You’re Here, Why You Matter & What You Should Do with Your Life
“I can’t stand my job anymore.” “I feel like I have no direction.” “What should I really be doing with my life?” “What’s my purpose?”
Sound familiar? For the past twenty years, Bill Hendricks has been helping people of all ages and stages stymied by those kinds of questions. The key is found in harnessing the power of their giftedness. Every person has their own unique giftedness. Including you. And the best way to discover it is not through a test or an inventory or a gift assessment exercise, but from your own life story.
The Person Called You is a celebration, exploration, and explanation of human giftedness. Bill describes what it is (and isn’t), where it comes from, how you can discover your own giftedness, and most importantly, its potential to transform your life. Especially your work and relationships. Rather than just paying lip service to the popular notion that “everyone is unique,” Bill puts a fine point on just how unique you really are, and how your personhood and purpose are inseparably linked.
You’re not just a “type” of person. You’re you! With a unique way of doing life that fits you for a particular calling. Honor that God-given wiring and you’ll start waking up with a sense of meaning, purpose, confidence, and direction. No, your problems won’t all be solved. The world doesn’t work that way. But as Bill shows through the stories of people he’s worked with, it works a lot better when people use their giftedness to make their best contribution.
The Person Called You is a practical guide to living the life you were meant to live. It’s for anyone who knows they aren’t quite where they ought to be-where they would flourish-and wants to start being who they were made to be. Is that really possible? Absolutely. It all begins with what Bill calls the “good truth” about you.
