Publisher's Summary

"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.

Super soul in classroom format

Taking the best lessons from her life and her conversations with those she had met along the way Oprah curated the pieces and the ahha moments that can help us all on our journey. I loved listening and being able to hear everyone in their own words and voice.

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.

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.

Everything I needed

When I started this book I was looking for guidance I was looking for answers but what I got in return was deeper than I thought. I had an aha moment that brought me to tears and not in the form I asked. It is profound. The Path Made Clear truly allowed me to feel more clarity, to get realigned and trust. Soo good. Thank you Oprah!
