An encounter at a party changed Gay Hendricks forever. The gift he received in that meeting became his touchstone for creating the life of his dreams. A stranger asked him to imagine himself on his deathbed and to consider this question: 'What would be the things you'd wish had been a success?'The stranger advised him to 'turn that wish into a goal, and put it in the present tense.' This simple, but valuable advice helped him create the life of his dreams. This short, focused book shows readers how to discover their own five wishes for a fulfilled life.
