Five True Things

A concise guide that gets straight to the heart of how to find courage and contentment when life doesn’t go according to plan. By embracing five true things we all experience we can find real happiness–even amidst challenges.

We want to live a happy and fulfilled life. And yet despite our best efforts, we struggle. In this powerful, pocket-size book David Richo shares that the path to well-being lies in accepting five true things we all experience, rather than fighting against them or wondering why.

These five true things are unavoidable: (1) everything changes and ends, (2) things do not always go according to plan, (3) life is not always fair, (4) pain is part of life, and (5) people are not loving and loyal all the time. Drawing on both psychology and spirituality, Richo offers time-tested insights on finding meaning and joy in life as it really is.
