Principles of Grace: A Parable to Discover Purpose in Life, the new book by John Barrett Hawkins, provides a success formula for setting and achieving your goals in life. The book is based on Hawkins’ 10-year study of human achievement.
"I wanted to learn everything I could about how the world’s most successful people set and achieved their goals in life," says Hawkins. "I read countless books on the subject of human achievement, and mined them for success secrets. Along the way I took copious notes and compiled all of the most insightful information into a step-by step formula, which became the basis for Principles of Grace."
Principles of Grace is a 94-page parable. The softcover book is available at Amazon.com and the e-book edition is available through Kindle. The book provides numerous success secrets for setting goals and achieving them.
