A cocktail party conversation changed Gay Hendricks’ life forever. A man he’d never met asked him to imagine himself on his deathbed, pondering the question “Was my life a complete success?” And if it wasn’t, the stranger wondered, why? “What would be the things you’d wish had happened that would have made it a success?” This odd encounter proved to be a life-altering experience. Hendricks created a list of five wishes, turning them into powerful affirmations that changed the course of his life, and which have guided his life ever since. Over the years, every one of his five wishes came true. Here, he passes the gift he received in that chance meeting onto others. He helps readers clarify their own wishes, and shows how to phrase them as affirmations. The result is a simple process that anyone can use to find wealth, wisdom, and a joyful, fulfilled life.
