"The 3 Gaps is a simple yet profound book that will enable you to live a better, more fulfilling life and have a positive impact on everyone around you."

About The Book

We all ask ourselves the question, “Am I making a difference?” We want to contribute through our work, our family relationships, and our interaction with others in our community. Getting your own life together is the first step to making a positive impact on the world around you.

In this new book, Hyrum Smith shows that achieving a meaningful, fulfilling, and impactful life is a straightforward process. He identifies three root causes of stress, dissatisfaction, and pain, which drain the energy we need to make a difference: the gaps between where we are and where we want to be.

Using inspiring true stories of people who have overcome difficult challenges, Smith offers a practical blueprint that we all can use to close each of these three gaps in our personal and work lives.
