Publisher's Summary

All of us have what it takes to make it in today's competitive and changing world. You may have doubted your ability to get the job done in the past, but something else may have been getting in the way of your success. The key to ultimate achievement has very little to do with your education or skill level. The secret to accomplishing great things is simple: Find and pursue the kind of work you are meant to do - your "purpose." No one said choosing your life's purpose would be easy. There are so many opportunities, it's a wonder anyone finds their true calling. While it may be difficult, understanding your life's real purpose will give you the power to have anything you want - anything at all. Once you figure out exactly what that is, getting there will be that much easier. So ask yourself: "What do I really want out of my life?"

Les Brown's exceptional new program, The Power of Purpose, will not only help you answer that question, it will also lead you step-by-step toward making each and every one of your dreams come true. Many of the world's greatest leaders were called failures, until they discovered their life purpose. When you choose an occupation that is truly compatible with your preferences, abilities, and unique personality, you will at last begin to understand the meaning of true happiness and personal success. The Power of Purpose will help you:

  • Experience the freedom and power of finding your life's work.
  • Focus and take action to pursue your greatness.
  • Measure and increase your self-motivation for ongoing success.
  • Guard against negative programming.
  • Live each day with integrity.
  • Separate what you've done from who you are.
  • Avoid people and situations that upset you.
  • Live in a spirit and attitude of gratitude.
  • Become a powerful presence in every area of your life.
  • And much, much more!

Inspiring

One of the most inspiring books I've ever read. If you find yourself in a rut or just down on life this is a book I suggest you constantly play. Having Les Brown in your ear constantly will leave no room for negative thoughts.

Have you ever given a book a standing ovation?

We listen to books on audible on a consistent basis, but this is one that we have carried through to the end before starting another one. It keeps you wanting to come back until the end, and then you don't want it to be over.

One of the best in the world today

Down to earth, inspirational and spoken with true conviction. I first heard of Les Brown in the early 1990's. Since I have matured, I know that his message will make a tremendous difference in this world for all people who listens and read his books.

A Great way to get motivated

les Brown's delivery is great and keep you engage the whole time. I would highly recommend and this to anyone to motivate themselves in life and in their careers. There was many times where I had to positive and really reflect deeply on what I was doing in life and anything that does that is worth getting.

Seeking to improve your mindset?

Let's just put it this way: I've finished this audio book in a week and considering how busy a person I am, that is fast. Les Brown is a great man. He gives great tips for the mindset that a leader has and must always maintain. Religion is a big part of his work so that's a plus. This isn't cheap, but it's my opinion that just listening to this material once is worth more than what you pay for, and I'm not even stating the advantages of listening to this again and again. If you are serious about making positive changes to your life, you've got to listen to some Les Brown.

Les Brown is PHENOMENAL

I love listening to Les. He makes you feel like you can call him Les. He is an expert in his field and it is because he is so relatable. Listening to him is like listening to your wise uncle or someone who has lived life long enough to have the experiences and loves you enough to share them with you. To push you to be your very best in a world that believes only a few us can truly overcome the odds. He shows us through his stories, that any of us can do it, if we are willing to do the work!

Best motivational speaker

If you could sum up The Power of Purpose in three words, what would they be?

Inspires hope and a future

What did you like best about this story?

Its not a story as such as an account of someone's life who has succeeded in the face of adversity.

Which scene did you most enjoy?

I enjoy listening to all of it and will relisten probably every day for part of the day for the next month.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Whilst I have enjoyed listening to many motivational speakers over the years - after listening to Les Brown the penny finally dropped and I am not the same person.

Any additional comments?

Anyone who has had any personal tragedy, marriage breakup, redundancy, bankruptcy and wonder whether there is a future would benefit from listening. Les Brown has the most outrageous laugh (very mischievious/infectious). I always prefer books to be read by the actual author which this is.

Brilliant Book

I loved listening to this very inspiring motivational speaker. He uses real life stories of many people including himself who through determination and belief reached their full potential . The author shows how we too can achieve our goals if we persist against the odds and stay focused we can make our own dreams come true .

Broader horizons and expectations

Through 13 seminars, Les uses his down to earth style, humour and personal experiences to see the inner you. That person who is too often in the shadows of your life, that successful and determined you who is never let loose. Les discusses how we can allow our lives to be purposeful and enjoyable. What he says makes sense and in reality it’s what we know to be true. Hearing the truth and acting on it is the key to a purposeful life. You will enjoy this book / audio recording.

Made me want to cry from the realisation my life has been a desert of nothingness

Made me want to cry from the realisation my life has been a desert of nothingness but I am now on the journey of gratitude, giving, concurring my fears and unapologetically loving my self and the vehicle that is my body taking me through this life. Fear God and be good to your self

Very motivating!

I listen to this audio book every time I’m stuck in a rut and can’t find my motivation. Les has a unique knack for getting you off your butt and into action! I especially love that the readings are live, he’s so funny and the content is really great.
