Publisher's summary

Everyone has a purpose. And, according to Oprah Winfrey, 'Your real job in life is to figure out as soon as possible what that is, who you are meant to be, and begin to honour your calling in the best way possible.'

That journey starts right here.


In her audiobook, The Path Made Clear, Oprah shares what she sees as a guide for activating your deepest vision of yourself, offering the framework for creating not just a life of success, but one of significance. The audiobook’s ten chapters are organized to help you recognize the important milestones along the road to self-discovery, laying out what you really need in order to achieve personal contentment, and what life’s detours are there to teach us.

Oprah opens each chapter by sharing her own key lessons and the personal stories that helped set the course for her best life. She then brings together wisdom and insights from luminaries in a wide array of fields, inspiring readers to consider what they’re meant to do in the world and how to pursue it with passion and focus. Renowned figures such as Ellen DeGeneres, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Brené Brown, Elizabeth Gilbert, Eckhart Tolle and Jay-Z share the greatest lessons from their own journeys toward a life filled with purpose.

The Path Made Clear provides a beautiful resource for achieving a life lived in service of your calling – whatever it may be.

Critic reviews

"Fans of Oprah Winfrey’s TV show, or more recently her two podcasts, will have this title on their playlist for months. She dips in and out of interview clips with trailblazers across various industries with her characteristic warmth, wit, and candor. Winfrey draws us close in this inspiring topical guide focused on self-motivation. We feel as though we are sitting in the living room with her and Deepak Chopra or any of the dozens of guests featured in snippets scattered throughout the listening experience. At times, the transition from one conversation to another can feel slightly jumpy, but those who favor nuggets of wisdom over breadth of discussion will appreciate the ground that she covers in 20-minute sections."

This book changed my life...

I finished it in one and I make sure to listen to a chapter each day. It really speaks to me. Thank you Oprah.

Compilation of wisdom

This isn’t so much a book in the narrative sense, as it is a compilation of clippings from a variety of people. I really liked it, but think it is one of those that would be better in print format

Meaningful and thought-provoking.

I started reading this, but then switched over the the audio book. So glad I did! It’s one of the best books to listen to (rather than read) because of all the amazing authors included. It’s like a really, really good podcast. Will be listening to it again and again in the coming weeks. Thank you, Oprah. My path is made more clear!

Trust yourself and have faith in the journey

Relearning to trust yourself and know in your heart that what you feel is right. I needed that affirmation, to be reminded of our connection to God and the universe. That our path is embedded in our spirit.

Very very insightful

I listened to this book twice. It was that good. The beginning it’s a little difficult to follow which is why I didn’t give this book a 5 star review. My favorite line from the book: “it’s all so simple”….If that peaks your interest and you want to feel like you’ve spent 10 years meditating to come to some “great truth” then this is the book for you.

I love how Oprah narrates the book. She makes it relatable and sounds possible.

I am inspired to achieve great things by first being then doing.

Thank you Oprah.

Wow

When Oprah said, “Epilogue,” my heart sank. “It’s over?!” I thought... There is so much insight in this book that it is clearly meant to be listened to over and over again. It’s true brilliance and ultimate truth.

Extremely insightful

I found the book so uplifting. Each “ah moment” I have personally tried to hang onto over the years is consolidated into one book. What is great is that your purpose is always evolving and not shaped into one thing. Oprah shares her personal experiences in each chapter it made the book relatable. It was a good touch to have short but insightful chapters. I liked the fact that numerous teachers were featured with the key take aways. I’m am listening to it again. Thank you for guiding me to the light when darkness was everywhere. This will become my go to book for clear understanding. Love, love, love! Read this book if you want quick guidelines on huge life lessons!
