Top of the heap.
He has such words of inspiration and encouragement, and always shares his life experiences to show where he overcame obstacles and his weaknesses.
Be thankful and live each day with happiness in your heart.
You don't have to be a religious person to listen to Joel, I see him more as a positive role model that inspires greatness in all of us and with sincerity.
It was as though Joel was talking just to me. I love when authors read their own material.
His emphasis on particular parts of the book that are unique to him experiencing it...the emotions good or bad.
I absolutely loooove Joel Osteen's books. He has a great sense of humor and is such an optimist. I started treating every day as a Friday and these past 2 weeks have been stellar. I also like his Christian insight of placing others first and not letting others' moods affect you. Instead, try to help or offer a word of encouragement and try to understand that we have no idea what suffering others have gone through. Joel is a talented author and the book just flows and his voice is pleasant and kind. A++++++++
He showed elements from: How to Win Friends and Influence People, The Power of Positive Thinking, The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People, and The Battlefield of The Mind. And he did it well.
His voice carries such passion.
And he lived happily ever after.
I now have to make room for this book on my ten most important books list.
I am a technology / computer geek and have been since I was 14 years old. Now 33 years old at the time of this description. I enjoy listening to books just before I fall asleep.
I am unable to compare the two.
It is his own words and who could better demonstrate his own thoughts?
Live every day to it's fullest.
Of course I've always really liked Joel Osteen and his positive spiritual influence, but I'd have to say now that I listened to his audiobook I just absolutely love him!! Not only does he have just the right mix of all the right stuff (like joy, faith, happiness, humor, charm, etc.) But his voice is amazing too. So calm and soothing, as well as interesting and entertaining. I got sucked in immediately and I listen to it over and over again!
I really like Joel and his messages. His approach to ministry is refreshing, but sometimes his voice became a little too monotone and I struggled at times. Overall though it's more than worth listening to and probably multiple times. The message is timely and timeless.
This book and Joel Osteen are absolutely amazing! Touched me deeply!
Living life with love and faith
I would recommend this book because it really helps. it did have an impact on me and it made me happier overall.
The way Joel read the book, it was as if he was speaking directly to you.
It actually made me feel better, and I was feeling alright before I even started listening to this book.
Its actually a pretty good inspirational book. I predict that the listener will not regret purchasing it.
