Book Description

Starry-eyed young entrepreneurs often ask me, What s the formula for success? After they hear whom I ve worked for and the companies I ve developed, they want the holy grail business-extraordinary financial wealth. Each walks away dejected when I frankly admit, There no formula.

As a boy, I made a misguided vow that propelled me into becoming an ice man in the corporate world, a man who didn t care for anything but his own advancement. I was a high level executive at General Mills, Pepsi Co, Frito Lay TacoBell, and Disney. I helped build a company worth billions(MFS), and was a founder of another (Level 3 Communications) worth over 100 billion. In fact, the Internet largely sits on that company s infrastructure.

But at the height of my career, tragedy struck…and a terrible, wonderful decision had to be made.

If you want to understand the underlying values of success, my journey will assist you. If you have been debilitated by pain, my story will bring comfort.

If you are an executive that thrives on business but are thirsting for more, this book may be your story as well. I can t give you the formula for success, but I can show you how to live a life of relentless purpose. .. which may or may not include profound wealth.

Video Book Review: The Treasure Principal

Randy Alcorn is the author of many books about spirituality and money.  I’ve learned a great deal from reading his book The Treasure Principle.  In many ways he’s changed my attitudes and behavior about handling and stewarding money.

Two key principles that I took out of this book:

  1. First that all of our money and all of our possessions belong to God and we are his money managers.  We are going to be accountable for how we handle the money and that’s really left a significant impact on my life and we’ve been blessed with money and I need to take seriously how I handle money.
  2. The second principle is the principle for which this book is titled, the treasure principle, and the author makes a strong case for why we should not store up our treasures on earth, but rather store up our treasures in heaven.  Our earthly money, possessions, etc. are temporal, they only last a short period, but our treasures stored up in heaven has eternal value.

This book is vital to understanding our relationship with money and how that impacts our relationship with God.
