I so love this book :') And sharing you this beautiful quote:
“The truth is, unless you let go, unless you forgive yourself, unless you forgive the situation, unless you realize that that situation is over, you cannot move forward.”
Deb Hendry
For me, the author is best in small quotes. The book seemed sometime repetitive in nature. It was not as spiritually filling as I had hoped. Although there are some great concepts in there, its presentation is challenging because it lacks a flow or depth to them- which is why I think this author is best and more effective in simple one line quotes that lead you to think about his idea.
This book synchronistically came into my life. It was exactly what I needed. Where was this book 20 years ago? It's powerful and my life is better because of it.
Whoa! This isn't a book you read and then forget about. I keep this by my bedside for my morning motivation. There is power in every page!
I love the style of this book - you can open it up to any page and read. It's an essay style so you can choose a piece to read. Steve Maraboli has helped me realize where in 'my own life I am my own poison' (a quote of his) --#1 Fan. I give this as a gift for all my friend and family.

I have been listening to Steve Maraboli on his podcast radio feed for over a year and I can't seem to get enough of him. Yes, this book is full of quotes and short paragraphs but they hold powerful messages. I also agree that some messages are repetitive, but I think it serves a purpose throughout the book to keep reminding us and refreshen our memory so we really understand the message he is trying to deliver to us. I loved it. I turned it into a daily soul cleanse and read a few pages each mor ...more
It's my morning go to book when I need to be inspired or want to start my day off on a positive note. Steve Maraboli doesn't just tell you to be happy and empowered he gives quotes and antidotes that allow you to reach that conclusion for yourself. This isn't a traditional book it's more of a highlight book from the last 10+ years of thoughts from his radio show, lectures & seminars. specifically this book used to be the self-published handout from his seminars designed to be a kind of "Stev ...more
Steve Maraboli is changing the Self-Help industry! He's not teaching you anything you don't already have within you, he simply reminds you of the tools and power you have to create positive changes in your life. If you want a change, if you want success in your life, if you want practical advice and empowering messages this book is for you.

This is the book where I'm inspired to do things right in the situation that I'm into this moment.
A book of quotes. That's it.
Evelyn Wiacek
“I want to be in a relationship where you telling me you love me is just a ceremonious validation of what you already show me.”

“Soul Mate

When we are born, the soul we are given is split apart and half of it is given to someone else. Throughout our lives, we search for the person with the other half of our soul. Very few ever succeed.

I am blessed that we have met. In a sudden moment, warm within your loving glare, my soul said, “At last! I can rest. I have found my missing half.” When this happe

This book is PACKED with timeless wisdom! I love that it is designed where I can open it to any page and be inspired and motivated to live my life to the fullest. His words are powerful and, what is most important to me, they are practical. I keep this book where I can turn to it often. I definitely recommend this to my friends and family.
Steve Maraboli's pieces and quotes in Life, the Truth and Being Free are perfect motivational reminders to get your butt out there and live your life! As a proud listener of Steve's radio show Empowered Living Radio, I am grateful I have the opportunity to take his words with me whenever I need a boost of encouragement.
Basically, what we have here is a pseudo-intellectually and rather annoying collection of life quotes which go on and on and on ad nausea. It's like if one were to overdose on Prozac, and literally become nauseous. After 2 or 3 pages you can put the book down, lest overdosing is your thing. 1/2 a star.

“Dare to Be

When a new day begins, dare to smile gratefully.

When there is darkness, dare to be the first to shine a light.

When there is injustice, dare to be the first to condemn it.

When something seems difficult, dare to do it anyway.

When life seems to beat you down, dare to fight back.

When there seems to be no hope, dare to find some.

When you’re feeling tired, dare to keep going.

When times are tough, dare to be tougher.

When love hurts you, dare to love again.

When someone is hurting, dare to help them heal.

When another is lost, dare to help them find the way.

When a friend falls, dare to be the first to extend a hand.

When you cross paths with another, dare to make them smile.

When you feel great, dare to help someone else feel great too.

When the day has ended, dare to feel as you’ve done your best.

Dare to be the best you can –

At all times, Dare to be!”
“If people refuse to look at you in a new light and they can only see you for what you were, only see you for the mistakes you've made, if they don't realize that you are not your mistakes, then they have to go.” 2702 likes
