Cure For The Common Life

Living in Your Sweet Spot

By Max Lucado

Max Lucado's Cure for the Common Life is a book that urges you to find out what God made you for and then to use those gifts for His glory.

Do you wake up in the morning dreading your workday or do you get up excited about what your day may have in store for you? As the book states most workers have little passion for their job, they are not living in their sweet spots.

The front book cover states the following:
"Sweet spot. Golfers understand the term. So do tennis players. But you don't have to swing a bat or a club to know this. What engineers give sports equipment, God gave you. A zone, a region, a life precinct in which you were made to dwell. And life makes sweet sense when you find your sweet spot.

But if you're like 70 percent of workers, you haven't found it. You find work to be dull and your talents seem wasted. You're suffering from the common life, and you desperately need a cure."

In Cure for the Common Life Max Lucado gives you a tool you can use to search your life and find your sweet spot.

It has been very interesting looking back through my life searching for my sweet spots.

If you are dragging yourself out of bed in the moring let Max Lucado help you find your sweet spot in Cure for the Common Life.
