The Entitlement Cure by Dr. John Townsend

_140_245_Book.1753.cover

In His newest book, The Entitlement Cure Dr. Townsend defines entitlement as doing life the way you want to, and feeling comfortable with your choices.  It is having little interest in performing difficult behaviors that don’t come naturally to you.

An entitled person thinks he is taking the easy way. The cure is doing things the hard way. The hard way is the habit of doing what is best rather than what is comfortable, to achieve a worthwhile outcome.  Ultimately there is no easy way.  Only the hard and the hardest.  Entitlement is the hardest way.  It fails us  because we won’t develop the character or relationships to become who God made us to be.

The Entitlement Cure provides practical principles and skills to help you or those you love find joy and satisfaction in life.

I am actually reading through this book a second time.  I listened to it the first time and now I’m re-reading it taking notes and highlighting the book.  It has challenged me to not shy away from the hard things. It has also opened my eyes to the fact that the easy way is actually the hardest way.

I appreciate the suggestions Dr. Townsend shares for recognizing entitlement in others and how to respond in a way that helps them and you.  He uses lots of examples and writes in a simple way that is easy to understand.  I would have liked to see more Scripture in the book. But, overall it was worth the read for the take-aways not only where entitlement creeps into my own life, but also seeing it in those around me and having helpful tools instead of becoming frustrated.

 

BookLook Bloggers has provided you with a complimentary copy of this book. I was under no obligation to give a positive review and all the opinions are my own.

When I lay my head on my pillow at night, a successful day is one where I learned something new, where I am a better person today than I was yesterday. I read to fill that insatiable hunger. I write because I can't not.
