For book/ebook authors, publishers, & self-publishers
Are you looking for purpose in your life, but everywhere you search there are stumbling blocks that keep you always one or two steps away from finding what you need? The Three Insights, written by author/speaker, Tim Pond, is a thought-provoking read that's both inspiring and entertaining. The Three Insights contains fictional elements, but has a message that teaches us what our lives could be if we searched for purpose rather than immediate satisfaction with material things.
Pond has infused The Three Insights with spiritual, ideology, psychology and philosophy and readers will surely gain strength from its message. The book opens with the main character, Jack, busily preparing for a business meeting while multitasking by checking emails and Internet golf reports. His thoughts are broken by knowledge that tomorrow is Thanksgiving Day, and although it's nice to see people, the talk always turned to memories of events that had happened without him.
Jack had missed out on the memories of family happenings because he was busy collecting "things" for himself and his family. He'd developed a successful business in Silicon Valley and eventually sold it to reap a healthy profit and then retired. But, after years of working 50 to 70 hours per week and building his business, he couldn't merely twiddle his thumbs. Jack quickly became obsessed with golf, travel and online poker to take up his time and his mind.
As a result of his previous work efforts and now, the time he spent with other pursuits, his family and friend relationships were distant, at best. In fact, he rarely spent quality time with his kids and wife - and he had no real friends - only acquaintances.
But, all this was about to change on the day Jack prepared to give a speech at that night's Rotary meeting when he's struck with a heart attack. If given a second chance at life, would Jack change his ways and make other choices or would he do everything the same? The story of how Jack reacts to his second chance at life is the premise of The Three Insights.
On the cusp of death, Jack begins a series of meetings in heaven with a wise mentor - St. Peter - who instills in Jack the formula for living a happy, meaningful and fulfilled life. The Three Insights transforms from an entertaining read to a lesson about how to gain more meaning in your own life and find the true purpose for which you were put on this earth.
The Three Insights is an illuminating book, filled with surprising and profound elements that will make readers think twice about their own purposes in life, what is everyone's common purpose and what is their true self in the scheme of the universe.
There is an old adage, "No one on his deathbed ever wished he'd spent more time at the office." Reading The Three Insights, by Tim Pond, will make you think about what you would do if given a second chance to live your life over again.
