Chazown (pronounced khaw-ZONE) from the Hebrew, meaning a dream, revelation, or vision.
You were born with your own Chazown. Do you know what it is?
You’re invited on a most unusual odyssey—to find, name, and live out your personal Chazown. It’s a journey you’ll never forget because it’s impossible to return unchanged.
Practical, fresh, and biblically sound, Chazown is a one-of-a-kind life planning experience. Perhaps for the first time, you’ll clearly understand what you’ve always suspected:
I have been created and put on earth for a unique and important purpose.
And God intends for me to know it and live it with passion and fulfillment for His glory.
Craig Groeschel will help you get under the surface of your life to discover your life purpose in three often overlooked areas: your core values, your spiritual gifts, and your past experiences. He’ll help you turn it into a highly motivating credo—complete with short-term goals, action steps, and a supportive network to make your big dream a reality.
And then Craig will show you how to apply your own chazown to five critical areas of your life: your relationship with God, your relationships with people, your finances, your health and fitness, and your work.
Are you living someone else’s dream for your life, or no dream at all? Get ready for Chazown.

Part 1

Seeing Clear to the End

Why you need a new kind of vision

Your Final Chapter
Most people take a long time to die.
(This is no way to start a book, you say.)
   But think about it. There are those few who go suddenly. Accidents. Heart attacks. Gang shootings. A soapy slip off the edge of the tub. But for you, chances are that at the end of your life, you will die in bed. Waiting.
   And while you wait, you will very likely have days, weeks, even years to think, to look back on your life.
   Imagine yourself there, lying in bed and reflecting. Reading back through the chapters of your life story.
   What did my life add up to?
   Did I really matter?
   What did I live for?
   Who will remember me?
   What will they say about me when I’m gone?
   Why was it important that I existed?
   So many questions. So much time. Will you lie there with no regrets? Some regrets? Nothing but regrets?
   Or not. I mean, you’ll probably have time to think about it when you get to that bed. So you could just wait. (Millions do.) See what comes. Wait until the final pages of your life story to see how it reads to you then.
   But that’s no way to end the story of your life.
   Here’s one more thing to think about: the decisions you are making today are actually making the bed you will lie in while you wait to die.
   Which is why I wrote this book. To help you see your life differently, to see it the way your Creator saw it before you were born. And to live it with purpose and passion.
   Starting now.

Praise for Chazown

“It is depressing to consider how many people will go to bed tonight never having thought of how God wanted them to spend the day. As Craig points out, this is a deadly cycle that quickly culminates in a wasted life. Chazown reminds us of the brilliance of our God who carefully created us and empowered us for a life of purpose. I pray it rescues many from an eternity of regret and leads them toward the satisfying and meaningful life God intended.”
—Francis Chan, best-selling author of Crazy Love

“Craig Groeschel dreams God-sized dreams. But he’s also one of the most down-to-earth people I know. You can’t get close to him without getting a vision infection. And his church, Life Church, is like a church on steroids. Creativity oozes out of every pore, leaving a trail for churches to follow if they want to impact culture. If you need a dose of vision, pop the Chazown pill.”
—Mark Batterson, lead pastor of National Community Church, Washington DC, and best-selling author of In a Pit with a Lion on a Snowy Day, Wild Goose Chase, and Primal

“Craig Groeschel is a leading voice among the new generation of communicators. He knows how to articulate people’s deeply felt needs, and—even better—to help them identify and pursue their God-given dream with passion and purpose.”
—John Maxwell, author, speaker, and founder of INJOY Stewardship Services and EQUIP
