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:
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."

Absolutely! The way Joel gets his message across is so easy to understand and the real life stories you can definitely relate!
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.
Many moments! I don't want to spoil it!
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!
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.
None. The message was repetitive. This could have been a half hour to hour sermon and be long enough.
He is a good motivational speaker with a texas accent.
To pray for more than you need.
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.
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.
How positive the book is and how encouraging it will be for all who experience it especially in these hard times.
Yes and then repeat again as necessary.
The best thing to do with this book is share it and live it.
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.
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!"
Every chapter was exactly like the previous chapter.
I believe he has good intentions but this book was unnecessary.
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.
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.
Don't Give Up
Joels books are all the same, but the messages are different. I just like the constant pep talks.
Love his jokes, and his uplifting demeanor.
Promotion, freedom, manifestation.
The part talking about thinking about no longer having a problem rather than just making it through the problem.
New way of thinking for a new way of living.
Listen to this book and allow it to clear your mind and imrpove your atmosphere.
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.
This was one of the best audiobooks I've listened to. I love hearing Joel's words from Joel's mouth - I listened on my runs and his words inspired me so.
Yes I have listened to Break out three times.
He hits on some fundamental concepts in life. Knowone wants to be around someone that is down or negative. If you are possitive other people will want to be around you and favor you.
I love how possitive he is with life.
This is a great book just like all other books joel has written .
Very impressed with it .
I laughed and cried it has tear jerking , hope encouraging stories that will definitely make you think .
No regrets about this book . Loved it !
