Are you winning the game of life? What does prosperity mean to you? The book Lifeonaire by Steve Cook and Shaun McCloskey will challenge you to answer these questions and more. The narrative follows a successful business owner, Alex, and his family as they transition from chasing the world’s definition of success to their own vision of prosperity. They were working hard on the path to become millionaires but what they really desired was to be Lifeonaires!
Living Life Abundantly
In Lifeonaire, Steve Cook and Shaun McCloskey show how many people pursue success and wealth when what they really want is life experiences. They challenge society’s accepted definitions of a successful life and challenge the reader to define their own meaning of prosperity. In the book, you’ll read about Alex. Alex appears to be a successful businessman who has everything that society regards as success. The reality for Alex is that, although he has done well in business, the things that matter most to him are suffering. He had created a business to provide for his family and give himself the freedom to do the things he wants in life but ultimately that business is the very thing keeping him from living an abundant life.
Everything changes for Alex and his family after a chance encounter with Scott. Scott lives a truly prosperous life by his own rules. Alex could see that there was something to learn from Scott but he just couldn’t figure it out. Curiosity finally got the best of him and through regular chats with Scott, Alex and his family were finally on their way to living abundant lives.
Lifeonaire hits hard with questions that challenge the world’s definitions of prosperity. My favorite part about this book is that it encourages you to find your own success. An abundant life for one person may not be a life someone else wants at all. Society typically tells you that you need more money, a bigger house, more stuff to put in that house, and an expensive car to park in your garage. All of those things are great, but do they truly make you happy? One of the great things about Lifeonaire is that can be what you want. You could also choose to live frugally while being extremely generous to others. It’s about finding your vision for your own life and taking steps to live that life today. Many people, including Alex, work hard accumulating wealth so that someday they will have the freedom to enjoy life experiences. Lifeonaire acknowledges that someday may never come and suggests that you could begin living a truly prosperous life right now.
This is an amazing book! It is very easy to read cover to cover as you take the journey with Alex and his family. Many people from all walks of life can relate to the characters in this book. The questions presented will inspire deep thoughts about what it really means to be prosperous. I especially recommend it to people who are looking for change in their lives but haven’t yet decided what that change may look like. Definitely pick up a copy of the Lifeonaire book. It has been life changing for me and many others. If after reading the book you are ready to live your own vision, you may be interested in the Lifeonaire 3 Day Get-A-Life Getaway.
