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:

So motivating and uplifting. I loved this audio - the way Les Brown talks is easy & entertaining to listen to and what he says is powerful.
I listen to it over and over.
"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.
Truly inspiring from beginning to end.
I recommend everyone listen to this on a daily basis.
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.
If you're going to listen to something positive everyday, you better start with the one and only Les Brown. I give it a definite 5 stars!
"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.
Up the top in terms of motivation and taking action to achieve a result
Compare this to the Alchemist in terms of creating a vision and achieving it through taking action.
When he talks about risk, the greatest hazard in life is to risk nothing. The person who risks nothing, does nothing, has nothing and is nothing.
Superb book, will listen many times.
"There ain't no equal!!"
Les knows how to hold your hand, boot your behind, and revive your spirit! Thank God he had the courage to live his dream!
"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!
"simple Amazing audio book
Les Brown wich is undoubtedly one of the best motivational speaker of my Era, has simple prove that words and ideas have an enormous impact in our lives. After listening to this audio my inner motivation has increase more than I expected and make me think about one's purpose in life.

The way les brown talks so true and deep about the meaning of life and his humour behind his failures shows that he has taken them as learning lessons.
The whole book
Yeah this book made me laugh plenty of times just his laugh was enough to get me going.
Great for those who need a bit more encouraging.
helps to motivate ,when you are in a bad situation.I would recommend this to anyone who needs a push to get what they want
"Best motivational speaker"
Inspires hope and a future
Its not a story as such as an account of someone's life who has succeeded in the face of adversity.
I enjoy listening to all of it and will relisten probably every day for part of the day for the next month.
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.
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.
"I really loved it, both positive and practical."
I found it perfect listening for when I travel and am on the go.inspirational stuff.
"Amazing (life changing)"
An amazing book with very eye opening topics which allow to rethink you life, Les brown is truly an outstanding, inspirational and educational motivator.
"Keep at it"
Really worth a listen if one is struggling to find the energy to forge ahead in life.. particularly the last two chapters.
really uplifting and motivational, this is something I can listen to again and again.
gets you to look at life from a different view.
"Great to re-align one through tough times"
It gives me the push required when I am going through tough times.
small stories here and there to reinforce the message
The one about 'You must be hungry!'
"Really enjoyed his motivational and funny stories."
I would recommend this audio book to people who are looking for some inspiration and advice on how to succeed in life. All the speeches are delivered with passion and often delivered with humour A+
A powerful lesson filled book, which resonated with me. A book however I do feel you could benefit from reading over and over, even if it's selective chapters to ensure the message is firmly a part of your beliefs.
