We’re born to thrive. Yet, few do. Some people, however, have “it.” They embody courage. They radiate love. They exude gratitude. How? They trust their conscience to guide them along their dirt path. They give warm gazes, smiles, and embraces, keeping the human touch alive. They understand that death is a reality and life is a gift. So, what’s their secret? They have a drive to thrive. You can, too.
In this book, Dr. Jeffrey Froh presents his approach for how to thrive with 10 commandments mapped onto God’s 10 Commandments. Using many diverse sources—including science, Scripture, Greek mythology, philosophy, children’s books, and music, as well as client, student, and personal stories—he’ll show you why you’re born to thrive. With 50 practical, science-based tips, he’ll also show you how to thrive. After reading this book, you’ll be able to realize your personal, social, and spiritual potential by:
Keeping God’s 10 Commandments saves you from spiritual sin and helps you live virtuously. Keeping the 10 commandments to thrive saves you from “psychological sin” and helps you live your best-life-possible. Thus, keeping the 10 commandments to thrive may not help you reach Heaven—but it will help you reach heaven on Earth.
I spent 4 years writing Thrive. During this time, though I experienced much joy, I also experienced much pain. Further, because of stress, I couldn’t sleep, routinely writing by 4 am (sometimes earlier). I sacrificed everything for this book. Why? Because helping people live their best-life-possible is my mission. But, I can’t complete the mission alone. I need your help.
Reviews are critical for creating a buzz. They determine if a book stays in a warehouse or is in someone’s house. Therefore, to spread the word and promote the message, can you please write a review? If so, together we can help people thrive.
As with marriage, parents vow to have and to hold their children “in sickness and in health.” They keep Coco, the moose, and Montauk, the bear, on standby for tummy aches; they color beside their children on sick days while it’s recess at school; they tell stories of puppy parades when Mr. Sandman has yet to bring their child a dream. On a tri-level podium, these mothers and fathers wear gold. Gritty as they are, however, even parental champions struggle. They need help. They need hope. They need love. St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital provides this—and more! Giving families the space to cope and heal, St. Jude pays for food, housing, travel, and treatment.
