The Friendship Key to Lasting Peace, United Communities, Strong Relationships, Equality, and a Better Job
We all yearn for a deeply satisfying life filled with meaning, purpose, peace, and security. In this disaffected world we seek a sense of belonging; to be accepted and loved for who we are. The Friendship Key to Lasting Peace, United Communities, Stronger Relationships, Equality, and a Better Job! author, family physician and counsellor, Dr Winfried Sedhoff reveals how friendship empowers us to achieve such meaning, and by doing so reconnect with, and ultimately, change the world. But first this pivotal book maps the disconnection. Dr Sedhoff gently reveals how we lost sight of close personal connection; what made competition more important than uniting as friends; why we’d rather keep up with the Jones’s and the ruthless pursuit of often-insatiable lusts than support and care for one another. He reminds us of the inevitable personal, social, and global devastation when we no longer prioritise and value being friends. Outlining why friendship is critical. Blending elements of Dr Sedhoff passions for history, tribal society, ethnology, psychology, and self-understanding we are offered a tool-chest brimming with simple, practical, steps to help us prioritise and build friendships, be liked, strengthen the depth and quality of our relationships, increase business success to global standards, eliminate bullying, prejudice and hate, uniting communities, and restoring governments to the people – finally ridding them of corruption. As our own lives are transformed we automatically become powerful instigators of immense positive social and global change; the creators of a satisfying peace potentially spanning generations. The life we long for is at our fingertips. This book outlines the tools we need to grasp it.

The Prairies Book Review

A compelling reconsideration of how friendship enables us to be accepted and loved for who we are and make a difference in the world…

Family physician and counsellor Dr. Winfried Sedhoff opens the book with the recital of his depression-sodden months during his post-graduation training, which he spent holed up in a one-bedroom rental in Sydney after resigning from his job and mulling over his deepest fears and emotional pains only to realize a new sense of belonging. The knowledge he gained at the time built the basis of many books he wrote later. In The Friendship Key, Sedhoff explains how man has keenly exaggerated his need for power and wealth, so much so that his inner unleashed beast has endangered himself, the people he loves, and the society as a whole. A ruthless pursuit of prosperity and status had changed man’s priorities and distanced him from the things that really makes his life worthwhile: most important among them is having meaningful relationships. As a social animal, man’s desire to be valued, noticed, appreciated, heard, sameness, validated /approved, respected, cared for, supported, and protected: his desire of the Ten Desires, is copious. Sedhoff makes an intelligent case for the “Ten Desire” rule: how by giving others validation, notice, approval, and support, we make them feel valued. The book offers eye-opening insights to help readers sort out their priorities and build meaningful relationships, build-up business success to global standards, eliminate injustice, hate, and racism and bring communities together, and ultimately rid governments of corruption by restoring them to the people. While every argument Sedhoff put forward will not appeal to the reader, a compelling case can be made for the curative potential of bestowing others with “the Ten Desires” (which we ourselves expect from others), and its powerful ability to bring inner peace and lasting happiness for one’s own self. In The Friendship Key, Sedhoff rightly argues that many of the qualities that make a person unearth a sense of belonging also represent the best in human nature. Sedhoff’s narrative is a captivating blend of history, tribal society, ethnology, psychology, and personal reminiscence. This well-crafted, thoughtful consideration of the damage done by isolating ourselves against individual and social alliances and following the golden rule of The Ten Desires to find a sense of belonging will reward readers’ attention. The historically accurate facts and clear-eyed insights Sedhoff deploys in the book make it both an informative and engrossing read.
