Do you have anyone in your life who can’t seem to stick with a project, meet a deadline, or even clean up after themselves? All of us feel we deserve special treatment sometimes. Some people live with this entitled attitude, such as:
Professionals who wander from job to job looking for a boss who will see them as amazing as they consider themselves to be—whether they’re productive or not
Young adults who refuse to grow up and so go nowhere
Spouses or dates who believe, “I’m special, and I deserve more than you’re giving me”
Leaders who expect special treatment because of their position, not because of their character
If you have a difficult relationship with an entitled person, or if you have discovered entitlement in yourself, understand this: It doesn’t have to stay this way. There is a cure. It’s called the Hard Way and it works.
In The Entitlement Cure, Dr. John Townsend explains that the Hard Way is a habit that focuses on doing whatever is needed even if it is difficult, uncomfortable, takes longer, and requires more energy. Dr. Townsend offers daily steps, such as risk-taking, to help you or those you love choose the Hard Way.
Ultimately, entitlement fails us. We don’t develop the character abilities and relationships necessary to reach success and become the people God intended us to be. By contrast, Hard Way people have better relationships, reach their goals, have a clear job direction, enjoy rich spiritual growth, and are equipped to face and solve challenges.
As Dr. Townsend writes, “Stand against entitlement in every form in which it manifests itself. Resolve your own tendencies toward the disease. Be a loving and firm force for helping those in its trap to find life and hope. And you will make the world a better place.” Discover why the Hard Way is the best way in this practical guide to true success.
