One question lies behind every struggle we face: How do I deal with myself? Behind all our stumbles, behind each of our missteps, behind every one of our failings lies an inability to handle what Van Moody calls the “I-Factor.” More than self-worth or self-respect, beyond even character and perception of purpose, the I-Factor is about managing yourself—your whole life—well. In his inspiring new book, Moody reveals how to get hold of your I-Factor.
Moody identifies three dynamics essential to winning the battle of the I-Factor: identity, significance, and perspective. When you understand your identity you know who you are, setting your foundation for everything. When you understand your significance, you see the purpose and the greatness you were created for. And when you understand perspective, you can view the problems you face as stepping-stones to greatness rather than stumbling blocks. Properly understand these three dynamics, and you will be able to master your I-Factor.
Weaving together personal stories, practical principles, and profound biblical truth, The I-Factor provides the key to achieving the life of greatness that you are destined for.
"You’ll have no place to hide—you’ll see yourself in every chapter. In The I-Factor my friend Pastor Van Moody uses biblical and contemporary examples with authentic teachings to help us realize that the person looking back at us in the mirror is The I-Factor. Small group leaders will love the summary at the end of each chapter to study and teach. I loved it. I grew. You will too."
"The I-Factor clearly articulates that the substratum of all relationships stem from how we engage ourselves."
"Van Moody takes you on a biblically balanced, often painfully penetrating look—not just a look at the you in you, but a look at the God in you who defines and declares your destiny and worth."
"How refreshing to find a book that focuses on having a godly, healthy sense of self-worth!"
"A must-read for all those who aspire to leave an indelible mark and footprint on the earth."
"Of the dozens of books I’ve read in recent years, this is one of the best. It is an easy read, but its profound message can be life changing for anyone seeking inner peace and a life of significance and fulfillment."
"The I-Factor strengthened my personal relationship with myself, my wife, my family, and most notably a deepening of my ultimate relationship with God."
"If you want the keys to unlock a happier more fulfilling life, The I-Factor is the book for you."
