Cover of Anyway You Slice it By Ricardo A Richardson

“There is an innate belief that if we can only discover our purpose we will discover lifelong happiness and contentment. This is true; however, we look to the slices of life, and often the wrong people and things to help us find purpose. We need to look to the Creator, at the core, where our purpose exist.”

Getting to the Core To Discover God's Purpose

“Purpose is a gift not to be pursued or achieved, but one that must be received. The purpose of one’s life is like a parable hidden in created man that can only be explained or revealed by God, the Creator of man.” – Ricardo A. Richardson

Do you ever feel trapped, frustrated or empty? Have you been searching—unsuccessfully—for happiness and identity in your career or in your relationships? Perhaps you even question whether your life has meaning. In Any Way You Slice It, author Ricardo Richardson confirms that looking to creation for fulfillment will never satisfy. But Ricardo has some sweet, juicy news to share: You are no accident; you were not born by chance. And it was God’s good pleasure to plant the seeds of your unique purpose deep within you.

Seeds are planted to reap life. You’ll find joy in discovery, as you learn to peel away your narrow preconceptions so your Creator can reveal what He had in mind for your life all along. Ricardo points out that, while your reputation is what others think about you, your identity is what God, your Creator, knows about you. If you’re focusing on building your reputation instead of confirming your identity, you’re missing out on the choicest fruit. The Bible has a lot to say about you. Any Way You Slice It will help you go to the core to discover biblical truth about your life’s meaning—to unlock new vision and to experience God’s powerful provision for the purpose-filled life he planted within you.

...let me say "thank you" for an awesome inspiration & the words touching me down to the core!! Woke up, grabbed the book & just finished. Awesome job & looking forward to the book tour!!

Myles Munroe I have come to the conclusion that the two most important questions in life are “who am I?” and “Why am I here?” These are questions of Purpose.  If these questions are not answered successfully then life on planet earth will be an experiment and an investment in disillusionment and frustration.

If you don’t know who you are you and why you exist then you are destined to become and imitation of someone else. The questions of Purpose and self-discovery have been the objective of ancient civilizations and have produced a myriad of philosophical and religious prospects that continue to exercise the attention of mankind today

This erudite, eloquent, and immensely thought-provoking work by Ricardo Richardson gets to the heart of these nagging human dilemmas of Purpose and Self Discovery and unveils some of the deepest passions and aspirations of the human heart - the search for True Identity.

This is indispensable reading for anyone who wants to live life above the norm and fulfill their personal purpose one earth. This is a profound authoritative work which spans the collective wisdom of the ages and yet breaks new ground in its approach and will possibly become a classic in this and the next generation.

This exceptional work by Ricardo Richardson is one of the most profound, practical, principle-centered approaches to the subject of purpose and self discovery I have read in a long time. The author’s approach to this timely and critical issue of Purpose and Self-Discovery brings a fresh breath of air that captivates the heart, engages the mind and inspires the spirit of the reader.

The author’s ability to leap over complicated theological and metaphysical jargon and reduce complex theories to simple practical Purpose and self- discovery principles that the least among us can understand is amazing.

This work will challenge the intellectual while embracing the laymen as it dismantles the mysterious of the soul search of mankind and delivers the profound in simplicity.

Ricardo's approach awakens in the reader the untapped inhibiters that retard our personal self development and his antidotes empower us to rise above these self-defeating, self-limiting factors to a life of exploits in spiritual and mental advancement.

Ricardo also integrates into each chapter the time-tested precepts giving each principle a practical application to life making the entire process people-friendly. Every sentence of this book is pregnant with wisdom and I enjoyed the mind-expanding experience of reading this exciting book. I admonish you to plunge into this ocean of knowledge and watch your life change for the better as you experience the beautiful and Transformational discovery of who you are and why you exist….no matter how you slice it!
