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 honor your calling in the best way possible.” That journey starts right here. In her latest book, 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 book’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 Eckhart Tolle, Brene Brown, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Elizabeth Gilbert, Jay-Z, and Ellen DeGeneres share the greatest lessons from their own journeys toward a life filled with purpose. Paired with over 100 awe-inspiring photographs to help illuminate the wisdom of these messages, The Path Made Clear provides readers with a beautiful resource for achieving a life lived in service of your calling – whatever it may be.

The audiobook was given to me as a gift. I really enjoyed it - it was an accumulation of bite sized snippets of life experiences from a broad assortment of people to think about.

This book is a great step for people to connect with themselves so they can have the encouragement to find their purpose or the courage to chase it. This is going to be one of those books that a lot of people credit to be a push in the right direction.

The layout of this book is a feast of the senses from the textured cover, user-friendly size, to the beautiful & visionary photos, culminating in sensual delight. Each chapter is named after the steps in a Journey, such as The Seeds all the way to Home. I liked that Oprah shared her personal experiences at the beginning of each chapter, which I found revelatory and illuminating. The quotes by a diverse range of individuals sharing their own insights were elucidating and act as a further resource. I wasn't impressed by some of the people she chose to include; however, that's based on my own ideologies. Overall an alluring and pragmatic read for those seeking to embody their Purpose and bring forth their Genius!

There are some valuable insights about life in this book but overall, I felt it was more fluff than substance. I read through it very quickly and was glad that I did so as to not waste any more time on this book than was necessary.

I did not read this entire book. I may borrow it from the library another time. Some of the reviewers said not to read it too quickly and I agree with them. It is a book to read a bit and then think about for awhile.

I agree with former commenter, not to be read in one sitting, ideally read a little, sit and think about it, I read it while I was on the treadmill a different times. Good ideas, some of them "aha" moments, some of them confirming things I have thinking about, good to be reminded to be open.

Someone mentioned a "calming effect" when reading this book. NO such feeling for me. Who ruins a book from the PUBLIC library by turning the corner of many of the pages?

I was expecting much more.

Great book for busy people. A quick read that packs a lot of insight into a calming tool. I like it. I think the photography augments the peacefulness that you get when reading this book.

"I have always thought a mountain is a magnificent metaphor for life. From a distance, the ascent looks clear and smooth, but once you actually set out for the summit, you discover unexpected valleys and precarious ridges along the way. If your internal compass isn't set to keep climbing, every stumble will give you an excuse to turn back... I was in the midst of one of the biggest climbs of my life. I'd even started calling this new endeavor "my Kilimanjaro."... At the time, I was "getting my butt kicked" in the news over the way OWN - the Oprah Winfrey Network - was 'struggling,' as they reported it... One of the toughest headlines announced, "Oprah Winfrey Isn't Quite Holding Her OWN." ... I thought about that mountain metaphor, I decided I would immediately stop calling the experience of building my own network anything but a privilege. I mean, really, I told myself, who gets to do this? It is the honor of a lifetime..." Chapter 7 - pgs. 118-120
