Instinct: The Power to Unleash Your Inborn Drive

T.D. Jakes. FaithWords, $25 (288p) ISBN 978-1-4555-5404-1

"Never settle for less than God's best for your life." So says respected preacher, bestselling author, and entrepreneur Jakes (Reposition Yourself) in his latest book. Jakes takes readers on a journey into their instincts—God-given natural aptitudes that, when examined, reveal considerable opportunities and resources to help people succeed in business, overcome obstacles, gain a better sense of direction, stay protected from predators, become better leaders, and build more inspiring relationships, among other things. "Instincts are the product of what we have and what we want to have," writes Jakes. "They are the inner compass guiding us from where we are to where we want to go." A big part of understanding how that inner compass works, though, is heeding Jakes' advice not to settle for less than God's best. Being in touch with inner instincts helps individuals meet life's challenges without fear. This positive book encourages readers to get in touch with their instincts, trust them, and rely on them, because they come from God. Agency: Dupree/Miller & Associates. (May)
