Yes, I would recommend this audiobook. I really enjoyed listening when getting ready for work in the morning and driving in traffic!
The entire book is about every day life experiences at home and work. I try to enforce the message by example on a daily basis in both places.
Inspirational everyday encouragement
I liked how emphasis
was placed on how you can not please everyone.
The story about how Joel's daughter would come down the stairs at night as a little girl.
Mr. Osteen does a great job of offering meaningful advice without being too
Some of the anecdotes brought me to tears. The one about a little boy and his teacher was especially moving.
As a rule, I don't read/listen to faith based self-hope books because they are either too heavy handed or are constantly referring to Biblical passages to make a point. Since I believe most passages can be interpreted different ways, I don't find that a compelling argument on how to behave. Mr. Osteen does refer to the Bible, but not constantly, and not to condemn. He uses passages to lift you up and show that God wants us to be happy and fulfilled. I found that refreshing and inspiring.
I don't know since I did not read the book. I do prefer to listen to a book, I can visualize it better this way. Also by listening I can escape my job for hours and be in a different place while I go on
Realizing you don't have to stress everything in your life. Let go and let God do it for you.
I don't have a particular scene but I do love how all of Joel's lessons are backed up by a true life experience.
The book is great in that it gives you great insight to live your life in an easier state of mine and heart. Also to be present to help and not so much for what is in it for me. Like the saying goes
This is a manual on becoming responsible for your own happiness. It is an amazing book, one that I have learned so much from and have gladly shared with others. I cannot recommend it highly enough.
Joel Osteen has a lovely, calming voice, and he is the perfect narrator for his own books.
There are many memorable stories in this book used to illustrate the
This book made me laugh and cry, and more importantly, moved me to make changes in my own life.
An absolute gem of a book. I recommend it highly!
I always did the self help/ success programs - found Joel through a Christian guy that said he was good. The crossover is amazing! To know that God wants me to have everything - is great! Can't say enough - more Joel!
To know that God wants me to have everything - is great!
Listened to all his books - all great!
Great - buy it - you'll listen to it again and again
reminds us to think positive thoughts to remain happier in life,... no one likes a gloomy gus!!
if you complain you'll remain , if you praise you'll be raised
Thank You Joel, for reminding me of these simple truths
I listen to it twice and would listen again. It was a great book to hear.
He is very easy to listen to, and its easier for me to get the message when spoken.
Keep smiling, and a reconfirmation of what the Lord says for us to do.
I didn't read the print version
all is memorable ... I keep hearing his voice telling me it's my choice!
yes. They're all good
Yes, because I can listen to this while I am working in my kitchen, or exercising and I think a live voice is effective.
Joel Osteen narrated this inspiring nonfiction book
I have read and reread the first two chapters and all content is excellent & profitable for instruction.
I was helped so much in my attitude and response to people who are difficult for me to relate and communicate.
I would recommend this good book to any person who is bothered greatly by difficult people who happen to come into their lives.
