Publisher's Summary

Audie Award Finalist, Inspirational/Faith-Based Non-Fiction, 2014

We were not created to just get by with average, unrewarding or unfulfilling lives. God created us to leave our marks on our generations. Every person has seeds of greatness planted within by the Creator. When life weighs upon us, pushing us down, limiting our thinking, labeling us in negative ways, we have what it takes to overcome and rise above into the fullness of our destinies.

In his dynamic, inspiring and faith-building new audiobook, Break Out: Five Ways To Go Beyond Your Barriers and Live an Extraordinary Life, bestselling author Joel Osteen provides practical steps and encouragement for creating a life without limitations. This audiobook will help listeners break out and break free so they can believe bigger, increase their productivity, improve their relationships and accomplish their dreams. Osteen's uplifting message focuses on moving beyond barriers by:

  • Daring to believe that the best will happen for us.
  • Adopting an irrepressible "break out" attitude.
  • Making room for increase.
  • Praying bold prayers.
  • Following God's plan beyond our circumstances.

Filled with faith and inspiration, Break Out challenges listeners to have a new perspective, to let nothing hold them back, and to reject any labels that might limit them. Osteen inspires and encourages with the message that our first break outs must occur within our own minds: "When you break though in your mind, believing you can rise higher and overcome obstacles, then God will unleash the power within that will enable you to go beyond the ordinary into the extraordinary life you were designed to live."

    "Extremely motivating and a good listen! Funny too!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Absolutely! The way Joel gets his message across is so easy to understand and the real life stories you can definitely relate!


    Have you listened to any of Joel Osteen’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I think he does a great job reading the book because it is like you are having a conversation with him instead of someone reading to you.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Many moments! I don't want to spoil it!


    Any additional comments?

    I highly recommend this and any of Joel's books and sermons he is very motivating and yet down to earth. I have been away from God for a long time and he is definitely brought me back!

    Story
    "Every chapter the same as the next!"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    If there would've been a "how-to" or had he given (verbally) the scripture reference passage/number. Almost the entire book was simply examples of people who successfully overcame this or that. So much was redundant. If you didn't already feel like a failure (if you weren't healthy, happy and prospering) you will when you're done reading this.


    Has Break Out! turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Would probably not buy another Joel Osteen book. This was my first. It felt like he was saying, "If you'll just think positive, you'll have everything you ever dreamed of!"


    How could the performance have been better?

    Every chapter was exactly like the previous chapter.


    Any additional comments?

    I believe he has good intentions but this book was unnecessary.

    "I love this book!"
    What did you love best about Break Out!?

    I love the way he makes you feel so loved by God. I love that he speaks of God's love as a kind, and gentle. I love Pastor Joel speaking the book. I will no doubt buy it in hardback form and give it as gifts that way, however, there is nothing better then hearing him speak the book to you.


    What did you like best about this story?

    How positive the book is and how encouraging it will be for all who experience it especially in these hard times.


    What about Joel Osteen’s performance did you like?

    Everything


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes and then repeat again as necessary.


    Any additional comments?

    The best thing to do with this book is share it and live it.

    Story
    "Good motivation but redundant"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Stop talking so much about yourself. The inspiration is good but after a while the stories about how great and huge his church is, get old. Also starts to sound very materialistic.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    None. The message was repetitive. This could have been a half hour to hour sermon and be long enough.


    What does Joel Osteen bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He is a good motivational speaker with a texas accent.


    Did Break Out! inspire you to do anything?

    To pray for more than you need.


    Any additional comments?

    As a christian the self gratification of the materialist message was a bit disturbing. i do like his inspirational messages on facebook etc but is this book was too much.

    "Fantastic Book"
    Would you listen to Break Out! again? Why?

    Break Out is a fantastic book. Joel Osteen motivates and provides you with practical day to day examples on how to go beyond your barriers and truly achieve an extraordinary life. I was glad to learn more of Joel's and gods message. It is a great book if your in need of some advice or even some spiritual uplifting.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    In one of the final chapters, the message was to "get over it." This part of the book speaks so much into the daily lives of everyone. Sometimes we just need to get over things that are holding us back,things that make us depressed, etc. and it was definitely a call to action. It made me feel that I need to get over a few thing in my life so that I can get where I want to go.

    "Who doesn't just love Joel!!"

    Very motivational and inspiring. Joel is very good at encouraging you to believe in yourself. To believe that you are worthy to pray and ask for exactly what it is in your life that you desire. He lets you know that God put that desire in your heart and that you should absolutely strive for what it is in your life that will make you happy. Pray and Pray and Pray for what you want. God wants us to be happy. God does not want to see us depressed or unhappy. A must read for those that need to BELIEVE.
