The Daily Six
Finding a balance
In 1991, John Chappelear's life fell apart. Within days, he went from being CEO of a multimillion dollar company to financial—and emotional—ruin. This catastrophic fall, which he dubbed "my gift of desperation," woke him mightily. Now a successful life coach, Chappelear discovered that meaning in life comes not from achievements or wealth, but from "something that is slowly entwined into life through your daily experiences, personal beliefs, and the way you interact with those around you."
Enter The Daily Six: Six Simple Steps to Find the Perfect Balance of Prosperity and Purpose, a commonsense bible based on short, powerful maxims. This is Chappelear's road map to well-being, his contribution to bettering private and business lives, inspired by mentors who helped him back to wholeness. Dedicated to fostering "success with significance," his six-point plan emphasizes the daily practices of willingness, contemplation, love and forgiveness, service, gratitude and action. Chappelear's approach to change is gentle, almost humble; he uses heartening case studies of others who have met and managed change, but he uses his own life as the primary lesson. This self-proclaimed recovering big shot realizes that "My life quest is no longer 'what can I get?' but 'what can I give?'"
"I have read many professional improvement books. However, The Daily Six taps into
something I have yet to find in other books--Chappelear, through his personal
experience, creates an "A ha" moment for the reader! I realized: I can apply these
simple tenants to my daily life.
"This book is the best motivational / self help book I have yet read. The six steps in
this book are easy to use in every day life. The book is clear and to the point. The
Daily Six are steps that anyone can follow. Of all the self help books I have ever
read, this one contains the best advice I have ever heard."
"Chappelear's steps are easy to understand and easy to follow. His advice really made
a difference in my life. I read his book and took his advice and I am now living a
much more fulfiling life. My outlook on life has really turned around and I owe it all
to reading this book. I highly recommend this book."
