  • The Real Rules of Life: Balancing Life’s Terms with Your Own

    Finally someone is telling the truth about how life really is. And Ken Druck knows what he’s talking about.

    No matter what we say, do, or believe in, life has its own terms. And they’re not what we thought. Life presents us all with challenges and setbacks. The life we thought we’d signed up for is not the one we get. Then what? How do we summon the raw courage and strength to go on? Create Plan B and grow wiser from the experience?

    Ken Druck’s personal journey through tragedy after the death of his daughter Jenna led him to discover the secrets of how we survive life’s worst losses and uncover its hidden opportunities for spiritual deepening, renewal, discovery, meaning, and even joy. We discover how to be a part of the unseen miracles and opportunities that are right under our noses.

    Ken Druck knows the Real Rules of Life. From his own experience and as a trusted coach and confidant to people all over the world, including leaders facing their greatest challenges, Ken knows the difference between wishful thinking and grounded truth. His refreshingly honest approach to turning adversity into opportunity makes up the heart and soul of this book.

    The Real Rules of Life is not a quick fix, nor does it trivialize life’s struggles. It shows you how to heal. How to grow your soul. How to thrive. How to be both broken and whole at the same time by getting and staying real. And how to live more consciously. Ken Druck inspires you to make peace with life as it really is. Once you know the Real Rules, you can balance life’s terms with your own and live boldly.
