Wall Street Journal best-selling author Jon Acuff reveals the steps to getting unstuck and back onto the path of being awesome.
Over the last 100 years, the road to success for most everyone has been divided into predictable stages. But three things have changed the path to success:
While none of the stages can be skipped, they can be shortened and accelerated. There are only two paths in life: average and awesome. The average path is easy because all you have to do is nothing. The awesome path is more challenging, because things like fear only bother you when you do work that matters. The good news is Start gives listeners practical, actionable insights to be more awesome, more often.

Book nerd for life!
It was narrated by the author and he was passionate about the book.
Same as the book
I needed an audiobook that wasn't boring and that would keep my interest. This definitely was it. I was procrastinating reading/listening to this book, and it was everything and more. Loved the enthusiasm (can't beat hearing the author narrate the book), lots of good stories and motivation and tips. I now want to read more of Jon's books. I'm officially punching fear in the face and starting!
Great Stories. I like the part about growing a crazy beard and collecting cats.
Awesome professional speaker, great reader by default.
Great concepts throughout. Critics Math was helpful. I also enjoyed the honesty transparency with things like the story about his honeymoon and wanting to make life long friends LOL. Reminds me to be careful with ideas and expectations.
I also found great insights in understanding ideas / emotions that come along with success that can throw one off track, and even how one can actually sabatoge their own success because of supressed fear. Rang true for me and I'm thankful for what I learned from this book.
Motivational, Fun, Accessible
Jon Acuff is an AMAZING speaker and this is one of the best audiobook narrations I've ever heard. I imagine the book is great in print as well, but the way Jon tells stories is very engaging. Nothing about his speaking voice is dull.
I've read dozens of self-development books and this one is definitely at the top of the list (my other fav's would be How to Win Friends and Influence Others and Unstuff Your Life). There was not a single dull moment in this book, and even though it is directed at any age group, I feel like it is especially accessible and inspiring for younger people (20s, 30s). I wish I had read this book years ago! (if it had existed... which it didn't)
i kept listening and listening but the authors stories and words never grabbed me. no discredit to the author but im just not feeling this book, there are others that i feel paint a better picture.
This book let me know that I'm not alone. I'm not the only one who has made crazy mistakes! The author is amazing in his story telling and intertwines his own experience into the book.
The book is understandable but the history is a little bit bored. This book may help those who don't know what to do in their life BUT there are books that have the same information with a better and more enthusiastic way of telling the history.
Anything you can get from this book will help you in your life. 👍🏼
I'm only about half way through this book. I purchased it highly anticipating reading it. So far I'm having a very hard time staying focused. It's like listening to someone ramble about basket weaving. I'm planning on reading this again maybe when I can maybe focus more.
