Is your life path lit by your inner candle flame, or are you stumbling along in the dark? In Dr. Wayne Dyer's new book, he reminds us of what so many people easily forget in the day-to-day grind of life -- that material success isn't what we're ultimately trying to achieve, and therefore it shouldn't be our driving force. Within each of us lies success and inner peace, which can be found once we understand that a deeper, richer life experience is characterized by a burning desire, or as Dr. Dyer describes it, an "inner candle flame." In this thought-provoking book, Dr. Dyer offers simple ways to change your life -- and your outlook on life. The ten principles presented here apply to people who are just beginning their journey of discovery, as well as those who have already embarked on life's winding path. Dr. Dyer urges us to listen with an open heart, and to apply the secrets that resonate with them and discard the rest. By doing so, we'll learn to feel the peace of God that truly defines success.
