    After reading this book it helped me put things in perspective. This book couldn't have come at a better time for me in my life and even though I haven't found my purpose yet, I now know what to do in order to find it
  • Amazing Book

    By TosHaNYC
    Amazing book! This book came to me as a sign from God. I was very unhappy at my job and I was considering quoting and doing something else. After reading this book, it made it clear what I needed to do based on my needs. And the second best part of this book is that it is very inspiring, and helps you understand why you were placed here on earth. Overall A+. The only regret, I wish it was a bit longer because it was an amazing read which I did not want to end! I will buy more books from this author!

    Great read!! I have been following Jon Gordon since I read the Energy Bus. This book delivers and is perfect if you are entering a new role, burnt out in your existing one or just getting ready for life after school. I'm rejuvenated with "purpose" and plan to share this book with with everyone I know as I have have with Jon Gordon's other books.
