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.

Just what I needed, wish I listened months ago as the truth and message would have helped me as I quit my job to pursue full time youth ministry.
5 stars to help Jon sleep better at night :)
Made me self reflect and I identify problem areas
I am not scared of the "learning" phase anymore
In summary it gave me a deeper desire to live an "awesome life"
I became familiar with the author from his "Stuff Christians Like" book and enjoy his wit
& humor. We are kindred spirits.
I'm also a management & business book enthusiast. And honestly Jon did better here then I assumed he might. That said I'm between a John C Maxwell & Jim Collins Good to Great book. Kind of deeper in the pool.
BUT this was inspiring and motivating in ways those aren't, and may just be feeding a niche those other authors neglected. And so, where my soon to graduate High School son and my wife might NEVER pick up a John Maxwell book, I'm insisting he give this one a listen before college enrollment.
Jon Acuff is amazing. He is full of life knowledge. I found the book to be real and inspiring. Sometimes authors portray their lives as perfect; however, Jon provides suggestions based upon his own experience.
I don't know if I've ever listened to such an engaging audio book. It felt more like an inspiring public speech rather than an audio book.
That is just a bonus. The information provided in this book encourages the listener to pursue their own talents and passions by giving practical and honest advice on how to do it. It's awesome!
Great mix of inspiration and practical steps. The feel of the book was lighthearted while still maintaining a level of seriousness that is necessary when talking about taking action steps to "start" the road to where you want to be.
