Power of Uniqueness, The e-book

by Arthur F. Miller Jr.,Bill Hendricks


Power of Uniqueness, The. Arthur F. Miller J. The central idea of the book is that each of us can only unlock our life purpose by uncovering our unique God-ordained design.

The central idea of the book is that each of us can only unlock our life purpose by uncovering our unique God-ordained design. The authors tackle the question of "nature" vs. "nurture" and settle the debate decisively in favour of the former. Hence, the book debunks the myth of "becoming", the notion prevalent in our society today that we can be anything we want to be if only we try hard enough. No, the authors insist, we cannot; and even if we try, we invariably fall back upon our inborn abilities to shape what we are doing.

Arthur Miller calls it your Motivated Abilities Pattern, or MAP, and it’s nothing you learned. It’s something you were born with, the thing that makes you tick and determines your successes and failures. In this revolutionary book, Miller invites you to explore concepts far different from anything you’ve ever read in a career development guide. You can be anything you want to b. Don’t let that lie rob you of your energy and purpose in life!You may function adequately at a job, even forge an impressive career-but unless what you do is lit by an inner fire, you’re just getting by. Because the truth is, you were created with an indelible, highly personal pattern of innate giftedness and motivation.

This is one of those books that is not so easy to read, but has tremendous golden nuggets that make you say to yourself, "wow, I never thought of that." I first discovered it when Success Magazine reviewed it a couple of years ago. If you are into self-discovery and self - growth it is worth having in your library.

I read this book as part of a seminary course on vocation. It was an excellent eye-opener on discerning possible career paths and, more broadly, my life's calling.

The central idea of the book is that each of us can only unlock our life purpose by uncovering our unique God-ordained design. The authors tackle the question of "nature" vs. "nurture" and settle the debate decisively in favour of the former. Hence, the book debunks the myth of "becoming", the notion prevalent in our society today that we can be anything we want to be if only we try hard enough. No, the authors insist, we cannot; and even if we try, we invariably fall back upon our inborn abilities to shape what we are doing. In fact, a person's pattern of giftedness apparently remains fundamentally the same throughout life. Not everyone will agree with this. But the book makes a convincing case for it from a Christian perspective.

The book frames a person's pattern of giftedness as one's Motivated Abilities Pattern (MAP), i.e. what one likes to do and is able to do well. Both elements of passion and competence are equally necessary in discerning one's God-endowed design. Much of the book is devoted to helping the reader map out (pardon the pun) his/her very own MAP. The appendices even contain a step-by-step guide for this purpose. For instance, the reader is invited to compile a list of his/her most important achievement activities all the way from childhood, and then to identify, methodically, common patterns across these achievements. The various dimensions (and there are many!) of the MAP, such as motivated abilities, motivating subject matter, motivating circumstances etc. are also explained in detail, and each are further divided into categories (e.g. how I learn, evaluate, take action etc.) and sub-categories (e.g. reading, analysing, performing etc.) By following through with the book's method, one ends up with a detailed and unique personal stamp that is invaluable for clarifying one's innate pattern of giftedness.

On the whole, I found this an enlightening read on the importance of recognising our God-given inborn pattern, and a great practical help for vocational discernment. While the book will certainly benefit anyone, I believe it will be especially helpful for people at vocational crossroads, young adults soon to be confronted with vocational choices, or parents who wish to bring the best out of their children.

The purpose of this book is to help you identify your uniqueness and build upon your discovery. He writes, "... you are the customized expression of a loving God." He describes the process of success as being ongoing and discusses how to maintain the momemtum. Discovering one's area of giftedness and building on that in a way that glorifies God is the essence of the book.
He devotes more discussion on specific ways of discovering one's giftedness and how to apply that knowledge to everyday life. The weakness of the book is the extreme to which he takes his argument. He sees dramatic shifts occurring in society to accomodate people's giftings. His proposals are far from practical. Sometimes one simply has to work outside one's giftedness tempoarily, e.g., when one is in college.
The first part of the book is the strongest. His insight is helpful in getting a better handle on how to live in a targeted, fulfilling manner.

I believe we are all unique and should be working in a job or profession which allows us to use our talents and motivations to tap into our life purpose and live out a fulfilled and happy life--while making a difference in the world. this book takes a unique approach into giving us a framework for uncovering our talents and motivations, the place where we can be the most productive. this book is very powerful for me as it takes a spiritual approach to this process while keeping us grounded in reality--our own life history/experience and what we can learn from it. we can use the process outlined in this book to tap into that deep place inside each of us. some call it intuition. some call it that all knowing voice which reveals our truth, our calling which can enable us to live a more fulfilled and satisfying life, while contributing our gifts to the world. it doesn't get any better than that. I strongly recommend this book as the foundation to the process of finding satisfying, fulfilling, energizing work and living out your unique life purpose. I consider this book a must read for all business owners and CEOs who want fully engaged, energized, creative employees resulting in increased growth and profitability through dramatically increased productivity and dramatically less turnover. I consider this book a must read for anyone seeking meaning, fulfillment, and success in their life, regardless of how you define success.
