The classic inspirational parable from the top motivation and marketing trainer and number-one New York Times best-selling author of The Millionaire Messenger - a triumphant tale of personal growth and change that will inspire anyone who has ever wished for a second chance.
What if you were handed a golden ticket that could magically start your life anew?
That question is at the heart of Life's Golden Ticket. Brendon Burchard tells the story of a man who is so trapped in the prison of his past that he cannot see the possibilities, the choices, and the gifts before him. To soothe his fiancée, Mary, clinging to life in a hospital bed, the man takes the envelope she offers and heads to an old, abandoned amusement park that she begs him to visit.
To his surprise, when he steps through the rusted entrance gates, the park magically comes to life. Guided by the wise groundskeeper, Henry, the man will encounter park employees, answer difficult questions, overcome obstacles, listen to lessons from those wiser than he, and take a hard look at himself.
At the end of his journey, the man opens Mary's mysterious envelope. Inside is a golden ticket - the final phase in turning his tragic life's story of loss and regret into a triumphant tale of love and redemption.

From the start I was drawn into the character.. His story resonated with mine.. Powerful messages at every stage. This is one the greatest books I've read. Thank you to my fiancée for introducing me to Brendon's books, love you Venessa..
Loved the story. Makes you reflect on your own life and the choices you make. Highly recommend!
this book was very enriching, packaging most of Brendon Burchard's lessons conveniently in one story.
"Amazing and Powerful"
The riveting and rich storyline.
Deepak Chopra's ."The 13th Disciple"
The final scene ...and the revelation of the importance of life's requisites
The book really surpassed my deepest expectations.
I expected something less riveting and insightful, and in fact it was a true
masterpiece of insightful and meaningful storytelling....yet so archetypal and true.
You will not be disappointed in this book. I suggest the audiobook format as it keeps the dynamic tension going while also portraying the characters with the required amount of color and personality.
this is truly one of those books you should give to those who need a "GoldenTicket" to change their lives..
"A MUST READ!!!"
i LOVE LOVE LOVE this book. I could not put this book down. The narrator did an amazing job i rearranged my work schedule just to finish it in almost 1 sitting. most books i prefer in print but this book is great to listen to over and over again! Inspiring, entertaining at every moment , and insightful.
"humbling and surprisingly emotional"
The Parables can be applied numerous parts of your life. I'll listen again to pick up on the nuances
"The BEST Intro to personal development"
This book is one of the best introductions and revisits I've ever experienced to doing the inner work required to grow as a success and a kinder human being. The lessons I've gathered from this book myself are numerous but what I found even better is when I've introduced friends that have never heard of personal development and think it's weird. Going to a weekend event or reading another personal development book can be intimidating for them - I never realized that. But after recommending this "story" and listening to this book, they've started that process self mastery and are open to other ideas. The quality of conversation that I have with some of my old friends as well as my new friends have gotten better and better.
Some of the verbiage was a little bit gimmicky sounding and read in such a way that it felt like a tired and over used "fall back" sermon for an uninspired pastor....
The message is as solid as I've heard. The story it's self is both creative and intriguing. Inspiring in it's own way. I love the creative delivery of many fresh perspectives, friendly reminders, and yes... the "feed you to the lions" kind of truths. The characters are relatable enough to identify with and spark an emotional connection to the story as it unfolds. It is the kind of story that elicits introspection, while also keeping the plot moving along so as not to leave you "stuck" in any one moment. In that regard; I wish I knew the significance of the "40 day" experience. Or what came of "Meg". I have other similar questions of that nature - because I felt as though they were left unanswered and hanging in the air a bit. I will buy a physical copy of this book for my personal reference and invite my family and friends to purchase their own copies as well.
So many great life sessions hidden within ths wonderfully told story. I feel as if I just received my golden ticket.
"13 Ring Circus"
I had high hopes for this audio book. Excellent reviews. Excellent reader. Great, jump-right-in start to the story. All too quickly it reads like a self help book cluttered with amusement park metaphors. It's difficult to enjoy the story line when it feels as if you are constantly directed to psychoanalyze yourself. Skip the ticket line and visit your therapist instead.
Enjoyed the book immensely. This book will illicit feelings you may not even be aware of. Immerse yourself in this story and you'll find yourself unable to put it down.
"Incredible story and book"
it is hard to put into words what this book is about and how it will effect those who listen.
A powerful message within a wonderful story and adventure. I couldn't stop listening and shall listen again.
A very different kind of personal development book, and read beautifully by the narrator. I thoroughly recommend it.
I wasn't expecting to be so transported. Really inspiring story. Will definitely recommend to friends.
"Love this book"
Great story .... Really thought provoking without being a tutorial. Chose audible format so as to be able to re listen during my long commutes. Highly recommend.
