An encounter at a party changed Gay Hendricks forever. A stranger asked him to imagine himself on his deathbed and to consider this question: 'Was your life a complete success?' If not, then 'What would be the things you'd wish had happened that would have made it a success?' Hendricks said his deepest wish was for a loving, lasting relationship with a woman. The stranger said, 'turn that wish into a goal, and put it in the present tense.' On the spot, Hendricks came up with this goal, 'I enjoy a happy marriage with a woman I adore and who adores me.' This goal helped him create his marriage to Kathlyn, and during the past 27 years they've become well-known relationship experts and co-authors of nine books together. This short, focused book shows readers how to discover their own five wishes for a fulfilled life. Neale Donald Walsch's thoughtful foreword explores the power of this approach and explains why he insisted Hendricks share it with others.
