About the Book

Do you have anyone in your life who can't seem to stick with a project, meet a deadline, or even clean up after themselves? All of us feel we deserve special treatment sometimes. Some people live with this entitled attitude, such as:

  • Professionals who wander from job to job looking for a boss who will see them as amazing as they consider themselves to be--whether they're productive or not
  • Young adults who refuse to grow up and so go nowhere
  • Spouses or dates who believe, "I'm special, and I deserve more than you're giving me"
  • Leaders who expect special treatment because of their position, not because of their character

If you have a difficult relationship with an entitled person, or if you have discovered entitlement in yourself, understand this: It doesn't have to stay this way. There is a cure. It's called the Hard Way and it works.

In The Entitlement Cure, Dr. John Townsend explains that the Hard Way is a habit that focuses on doing whatever is needed even if it is difficult, uncomfortable, takes longer, and requires more energy. Dr. Townsend offers daily steps, such as risk-taking, to help you or those you love choose the Hard Way.

Ultimately, entitlement fails us. We don't develop the character abilities and relationships necessary to reach success and become the people God intended us to be. By contrast, Hard Way people have better relationships, reach their goals, have a clear job direction, enjoy rich spiritual growth, and are equipped to face and solve challenges.

As Dr. Townsend writes, "Stand against entitlement in every form in which it manifests itself. Resolve your own tendencies toward the disease. Be a loving and firm force for helping those in its trap to find life and hope. And you will make the world a better place." Discover why the Hard Way is the best way in this practical guide to true success.

Reviews

The growing entitlement mentality in this country is completely toxic, slowly eating away at our spirits like acid. I’ve said for years that if you want to win, you’ve got to take responsibility. You’ve got to leave the cave, kill something, and then you can drag it home! Personal responsibility may be the hard way, but it’s the only way.

The Entitlement Cure is a powerful book that gives people a true roadmap to success. If you want a better life, starting right now, buy this book.

Dr. John Townsend has written a helpful and encouraging book to help us deal with the issue of entitlement, whether we see it in others or in ourselves. Overcoming this mindset isn’t easy. It requires discipline, honesty, and responsibility. That’s the hard way, but it’s the only way worth taking.

There are so many real-life examples based on John’s experience and expertise that reinforce why the hard way is the best way and God’s intended way for our success. This is more than a book to read, it’s an engaging conversation with a “friendly” expert.

Buying and reading The Entitlement Cure should be one of the easiest decisions you ever make. Why? Because we all need John Townsend’s life-giving message. Don’t miss out on this compelling and immensely practical book. You will love The Entitlement Cure!

There are no shortcuts to anywhere worth getting to. The Entitlement Cure is full of wisdom, truth, empowerment, and principles that will help you and those around you actually achieve success. I’ve been waiting for this book and could not put it down. It is a new word for our generation.

There is no such thing as “the easy button,” but my friend John Townsend delivers real remedies to today’s entitlement mentality. The Entitlement Cure is a game changer.

Dr. John Townsend is one of the leading psychologists in the world today, and his new book, The Entitlement Cure, will help hundreds of thousands of readers. He describes the hard way as developing the habit of doing what is best, rather than what is most comfortable, to accomplish worthwhile outcomes. In reality, the hard way actually becomes the easiest way to achieve success and love. I highly endorse this book.

The only place where “success” comes before “work” is in the dictionary. Cutting corners is a shortcut to losing --- there is no free lunch. John has hit on one of the most pressing problems facing families, businesses, and society. We have a rising culture of entitlement. The Entitlement Cure is a straightforward illustration and guide to curing this epidemic.

Dr. John Townsend has addressed a devastating result of the disappearance of personal responsibility in our culture--- entitlement. He provides the necessary tools to identify it and a system to deal with it. The Entitlement Cure is a useful addition to everyone’s toolbox.

John has again demonstrated a clear understanding of the reality we all face of feeling entitled about something. With his explanation of the hard way in his new book, The Entitlement Cure, we learn of a path forward, always learning to be vulnerable, affirming others appropriately, taking risks, and knowing the “why” whenever we do something.
