Praise for What Matters Most
“People who are happy recognize their success has come from who they are as much as from what they have accomplished. What Matters Most will give you the courage to be yourself and live a life of integrity.” -John Gray, Author of Men are From Mars, Women are From Venus
“The concepts presented in this book have completely turned my life around. I’ve tried numerous ‘self-help’ or ‘self-improvement’ books but most tend to focus on the problems you have in your life, rather than your core values. In What Matters Most, Hyrum Smith brings these values to the forefront and helps you focus on the important things in your life…I highly recommend this book to everyone.” -Al H., California
“As a working professional, wife, mother, and concerned member of the community I have been searching for help in balancing my life. I found Hyrum Smith’s book extremely insightful into how I can ‘have it all’ and ‘do it all.’
“The first thing he does is to help me define what ‘having it all’ is to me. And I’ve discovered that I need to decide what matters most to me and not let media nor soceity nor anybody else do that for me. Once what matters most has been determined I can now see how I can do it all.
“In addition to the self-help power of the book, I just found it extremely readable and immediately applicable. I’ve read stories from the book to my husband, children, and friends and they feel uplifted as opposed to preached to on how they need to improve. We especially enjoyed the section on Abundance.” -Annie O., Utah
“This is one of the most powerful and useful books on identifying my core values. The stories relayed and examples given are on point and very applicable to me and my life. I found myself tabbing several pages with quotes or historical references that provided insight into my values and how I want to live my life.” -K. McCarthy
“This isn’t the kind of book you read while eating potato chips. You need a highlighter and a notepad and a pen. I could only read a few pages, then I would have to sit back and reflect.
It’s not that this is totally new stuff. This book has been around. It’s that I need to be pulled back to center from time to time and this book really does that.” -Pili Meyer, Washington
