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)

Clearly not all authors are born to be narrators.
How does the author expect us to believe he can help us recognize our gifts when he clearly can not recognize his own? The man is not an auditor. While the information is nothing new or profound, I give credit to any author speaking his or her personal truth. Wouldn't the world be better if we all did? My problem however, is that he either has no respect for the art of narration or an unrealistic view of his own talents, which doesn't instill confidence.
Not if he performs them.
If Brian wants to be taken seriously, hire a professional reader. Just because it's non-fiction does not mean it can't be entertaining. Some authors narrate well (Ron McClarty for example) but most do not. Maya Angelou comes to mind as one of the best authors and worst readers of all time. Don't make that egotistical mistake.
