Description

"Fans of Oprah Winfrey's TV show, or more recently her two podcasts, will have this title on their playlist for months." — AudioFile Magazine, Earphones Award winner 

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 audiobook, 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 audiobook’s 10 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 listeners to consider what they’re meant to do in the world and how to pursue it with passion and focus. These renowned figures share the greatest lessons from their own journeys toward a life filled with purpose.

The Path Made Clear provides listeners with a valuable resource for achieving a life lived in service of your calling - whatever it may be.

If you're going through something-pick this up!

I see many reviews talking about how this book has a lot of pictures and quotes and I definitely would get this as my coffee table book to pick up anytime I want to read one. But I got the audiobook because I couldn't wait to hear more life lessons from Oprah! The audiobook is UNBELIEVABLE and brought me to tears at many points and I felt like she was really speaking to me. I really needed to hear this and like so many things Oprah has taught us, nothing she has given us was ever a waste of time (to me at least). Don't let the quotes steer you away from the powerful lessons this book teaches you. Each chapter has a theme and she speaks of something which really changed her life in each one and it is backed up my quotes from others who actually experienced those things and how they made it through (vague but don't want to spoil). Life can create little dark clouds in your world but this book really showed me how to look for the light. Thank you, Oprah, I loved it!

Just a collection of inspirational quotes, stories

I thought this book would offer real advice on how to find your life's purpose, but it's really just a collection of inspirational quotes (and brief stories) from celebs Oprah has interviewed. That and a sort of spiritual sermon. If you've never read anything self-help/inspirational/spiritual then this might make you think and it might be helpful, but there's really nothing new or profound in this book that hasn't appeared in the very many other inspirational books out there. Contains a lot of mumbo-jumbo like, "It doesn't matter if the glass is half empty or half full when the pitcher of water is sitting next to it." And, "You've always had the power." It wasn't a terrible book, but I was expecting more substance. It's also a short for a book, at just under 3 hours..

In true O style

I loved that Oprah took her love for quotes and put them all together for us. It made me think and gave me such yes moments. The time it must have taken to edit all pick all of these quotes must have taken so much time. Very well done.

Inspiring!

Inspiring to a recent university grad, trying to save the world! This audiobook compiles powerful interviews on the topics of life purpose and direction into a relatively short listen. It will definitely leave you feeling inspired to reach for the sky.

Thank you!

My life can never be the same!

As I listened to this book, I knew my life was about to be forever changed from this point onward. It is an explosion of every profound and inspiring thing you’ve ever heard, every spiritual lesson you’ve ever been taught and every motivational speech you’ve ever listened to packed into a 3 hour punch in the face! I took notes, I cried, I ah ha’d. Simply amazing! I am so grateful not only for this book but for the perfect timing of this book as I have never been more ready to receive it. A must read/listen!

Wisdom from a collection of spiritual thinkers

While I won't say that I loved this one as much as, What I know for sure, I will say I loved this listen and I will have it on repeat for a while. I appreciate that, as usual, Ms. Winfrey is sharing wisdom gleaned from many thought leaders. What I enjoyed was hearing it in their own words. Yes, it could have been cleaner had the recordings been captured in-studio, but hearing profound thoughts captured in the moment was inspiring. Worth the audible credit or purchase, even though it's just shy of 3 hours. There is a lot of value here for your time invested.

Gave me many doses of just what I needed to hear..

I love this book and have listened to it twice since I bought it 3 days ago. In the book Oprah has interviewed quite a few thought leaders and other interesting people of today. She then beautifully and masterfully wove bits and pieces of those conversations throughout the various chapters on various subjects. It is inspiring, Insightful and the does a good job of putting a lot of life's situations and our own thoughts into context and a
really good framework.

Love.

Anything brand new and groundbreaking? Not if you've been in the personal and spiritual development game for awhile. A perfect introduction for anyone who has been considering jumping into either side of the field. No matter what, It is beautiful. It is an easy listen, full of gorgeous reminders, gems of wisdom, and so much heart. I spent a lot of this book quietly nodding and agreeing, pausing to let a message marinate in my mind for a bit longer, and quite a few times hollering "yes! amen!" Definitely one to keep in the collection to go back to often.

Junk Food for Your Soul

From the person who brought into the spotlight the charlatans Dr. Phil and Dr. Oz, this is an extension of vapid and feckless faux-solutions to all problems and ailments.

-- Should you trust your instincts above all else? Not everyone has good instincts, otherwise we wouldn't need the scientific method.

-- Is the only obstacle in life your own hesitation and self-doubt? For those with real world issues, this is folly. Those with terminal illness, those held in the social bondage of their familial or fiscal situations, and for those with circumstances contrary to the social norm and are held back by institutionalized racism, sexism, ageism, or bigotry, the idea that you are holding yourself back is nothing more than blaming the victim of poor fortune.

There are snippets of truth and self-healing here, similar to what one could find in a book of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy or group discussion sessions. Unfortunately this product waters those methods down and packages in a form that serves the capitalist interests of Oprah's brand rather than for the benefit of her admirers. It is a shame that someone who legitimately achieved greatness from a place of poverty and social difficulty has created a product line that serves those who need it least, and blames the victims for being in similar circumstances that she was so *lucky* to have escaped.

This is a book that could benefit a bored member of the idle rich, toiling away their life in gossip magazines and white wine. These kinds of people need this type of spiritual awakening to help them find purpose and motivation. For everyone else, whose purpose involves the struggle of real problems and distant solutions, this is a short jaunt through masochistic self-loathing and a path to lugubrious futility.

Beautiful book!

I love the book just wish there wasn't so many cut to different people talking. Sometimes it feels a little all over the place because of that. But the message of the book as always with Oprah is truth, growing, learning and being our best self.
