Publisher's Summary

Do you ever feel burned out, beat up, or just plain bored, wondering, "Is this all there is"? Do you ever feel trapped in a stressful job that leaves you unhappy and unsatisfied? Do you ever question if you're fulfilling your life's purpose? If so, you are not alone. Like millions of Americans, Brian Souza found himself in this precarious position a few years back. Despite attending dozens of motivational seminars and devouring the best the self-help industry had to offer, Souza was left wanting more. The turning point came when he finally realized it wasn't artificial motivation he was after; he was really searching for a legitimate reason to be motivated. Thousands of hours of research and countless interviews later, Souza finally uncovered the secrets he was looking for all along. Just as musicians must make music, poets must write, and artists must paint, we all have a unique gift designed for a specific vocation that will bring both meaning and purpose to our lives. Become Who You Were Born to Be is a blueprint for discovering your unique gift and using it to realize your personal and professional potential. And to illustrate his life-changing philosophy, Souza relates true stories of everyday people and world-famous celebrities, including Lance Armstrong, Amy Tan, Sylvester Stallone, Garth Brooks, and Oprah Winfrey, who became heroes by overcoming adversity and squeezing every ounce of opportunity from their gifts.

"It's the psychological astuteness with which he analyzes the fearful life patterns many Americans fall into that makes this book most valuable." (Publishers Weekly)

Fantastic

I was very impressed with this book. It is very motivating, and intelligent! I have listened to many motivational speakers and Brain Souza writes in his own style. I found this book to be interesting, eye opening, sometimes funny and sometimes healing. Great writing, and the reader has a wonderful powerful voice!

Awesome, Awesome Listening

I have been reading and listening to a lot of self-development books and I would like to say that this one tops them all, hands down. Perfect and profound choice of words, inspiring stories that got my juices flowing, words of wisdom that got me thinking deep and hard about who I am and what I want to be in order to return God's favor and give back to society what I have been bountifully blessed with. I could not finish the audio because I kept going back to chapters that really spoke to my heart. Thank God for people like Brian Souza, so blessed, so gifted, so enlightening, I could go on and on and not give enough justification as to why this masterful book/audio should be owned by everyone. This is the only book I could not help but write a review on. It is simply superb!

Uplifting

I liked this book, it was easy to listen to with great inspirational stories. I'm not sure how much it will work when I try and put it in to practice but the book left me feeling more positive so that's a great start.
