My Purpose is a non-fiction book written by Bruce Francois. The book is published by Inspire Minds Publishing. The cover and the interior is designed by Jose Book designs.
The author was inspired to write this book to discuss questions like; Why are you here? Who are you born to be?, and What were you born to do? He elaborates to us the difference between the existence of basically going through the motions of life and contrasts it with a life of purpose. He meticulously takes us through the journey of seeking to discover our purpose by giving us principles that guide us in identifying and unwrapping where we are as we discover ourselves and the keys to unlock our fullest potential and move forward
One of the things talked about in the book is the ability of one to identify his/her own surroundings. It is one of the things that influence one's personality and choices in life. According to the book, one’s sources of influence are the people around you, the things around you and the systems in your environment. The author goes into more detail defining these things, alongside advice into how one can make a difference rather than being a product of these influences.
What I liked most about the book was the thorough arrangement of the author’s concepts in detail. He says, “I did what most engineers do: I broke life down to its most fundamental components...” Each chapter focuses on one aspect of the journey, like the struggle, discovering yourself, deploying yourself, and so on. The content is very well arranged and easy to follow, whether in sequence or for reference whenever the need arises to consult a topic of interest. There wasn’t much I disliked about the book.
In my opinion, the book is a notch or two higher than motivational material. If done right, the readers will be able to find out things about themselves that will stay with them and also enable them to enjoy the fruits of such discoveries for eternity. The author has written the book in such a way that a reader from any background of culture or faith can benefit from its content. However, he does consult Christian text and borrows a lot of influence from well known people like Myles Munroe and Stephen Copeland.
I highly recommend this book to those who need to find out how to live out their lives drawing from their full potential. I can’t identify anyone who would’t benefit from reading it. For the great editing and layout of the book, and the quality of content as discussed above, I give the book a rating of 4 out of 4 stars.
