The Weekend Read: 7 The Road Less Travelled

I read this week’s book several years ago, but for some reason it didn’t make as much of an impact on me as it did second time round. Thanks to Jo Daly from Springs Dental Practice in Darlington for reminding me about it.

Any book that starts:

‘Life is difficult. This is a great truth, one of the greatest truths. It is a great truth because once we truly see this truth, we transcend it

must be worth some attention.

If you can’t manage the whole book then read the first section on Discipline where he outlines and analyses four tools that help to provide discipline in dealing with suffering and provide growth.

· Delaying of gratification.

· Acceptance of responsibility.

· Dedication to truth.

· Balancing.

The book also provides a good introduction to psychotherapy.

You can get it from my shop at Amazon.
