Publisher's Summary

Just be yourself! People say it all the time, but how do we actually live it?

For more than a decade, Matthew Kelly has been helping people discover the best version of themselves. Now, in Perfectly Yourself, he addresses the opportunities and obstacles that we encounter once we decide to ask life s big questions: Who am I? What am I here for? Focusing on nine powerful and practical lessons, Kelly shows us how to find lasting happiness in a changing world.

We all have an insatiable need to grow and improve: Every year millions of us buy books and attend workshops in the hope that we will lose weight, improve our relationships, conquer debt, accomplish more in our careers, achieve financial independence, reach spiritual enlightenment, become better parents or lovers, the list goes on. We yearn for progress. And yet, many of us fail to achieve the transformations we desire.

Perfectly Yourself is for anyone who has ever failed at a diet, survived the collapse of a relationship, or wondered if he or she will ever find a fulfilling career. It's a book for all of us who long to be at peace with who we are, where we are, and what we are doing, not in some distant tomorrow but here and now today.

Searching for happiness

I absolutely loved this book. I would highly recommend it to those who have ever posed the question, "why can't I just be happy?" This book will help those in need start to build a path towards the happiness they've been seeking. It has valuable lessons and is faith based which is a plus in my book.

Excellent reminders of what makes us genuinely happy

Doing what we know to be right sometimes comes easy; sometimes not. This book has great value in reminding us why to choose well and the benefits of good habits. It’s also applicable to people of different faiths.

Connecting habits to happiness was the most valuable teaching of this book. It was practical and sensible.

I like that although this could be called a self improvement book, it is not self indulgent. It does not exalt self to an unhealthy level. In fact it proves that taking good care of our inner world makes us a blessing to others.

This is a book to listen to (favorite chapters) more than once. Not bad for Book Club discussion as well.

Wisdom

Matthew Kelly distills wisdom from many other reads into one easy to listen to book. I hear key points from “The Power of Habit”, “When, The Scientific Secrets to Perfect Timing”, and others. His voice is calming and delivers these messages very effectively.

This was a very good listen. I loved chapter 6 and chapter 9 especially. Australian accent is easy on the ears.
