You probably already know that reducing stress is a good thing. Yet, in a world that has elevated busyness to a virtue and has convinced you that doing for others is more important than giving to yourself, how do you make time for you? For exhausted people everywhere who overextend their giving and wonder when they will find the time take a nap, let alone achieve their dreams, The Power of Receiving presents a revolutionary message—the world gives only what you can receive.
