Life is an adventure, and while everything you do and every decision you make is aimed at making you happy, you may step back from time to time and ask yourself, “Why am I here?” and “Is there a deeper meaning to life?” To find these answers, you need to go beyond the distractions of the world and be open to discovering your true purpose and potential.
Author Curtis Martin in Made for More takes a serious look at ethics and morals as the sources of happiness in this otherwise materialistic world: “Many of our choices deliver only temporary or fleeting happiness, sometimes at the cost of our ultimate happiness. Good choices offer a lasting, deeper kind of happiness.” This book does have a strong underlying religious principle, which a reader may or may not be drawn to, but I did not find it to be overly preachy or persuasive. However, it’s true that I am someone who reads a variety of materials and I’m likely to find something thought-provoking in every book whether I agree with the author’s premise or not, so I am personally not adverse to reading materials with various ideologies. For instance, I found his statement above to be true regardless of any religious connection…..which indeed was not introduced until later in the book.
