“No one really questions his or her purpose until being brought to a moment in life where it no longer serves him or her or, in my case, makes sense.” Bruce Francois
The above is the introductory statement in the book My Purpose: Become the Best You by Bruce Francois. In the book, the author seeks to discover what his true purpose is after he thought he was living out his purpose for a long time. In the ten well written chapters, Bruce reflects on his internal struggles and in so doing, helps the reader know that it’s possible to discover ones purpose no matter their age. The book ends by reminding the reader that the ultimate purpose of purpose is to bear fruit and goes ahead to list the fruit according to the Bible.
I was deeply touched by how honest the author was. In the book, he goes into candid details about his personal struggles and how they affected his outlook on life and his choices. I did enjoy reading the book, and even though the author has indicated that his faith as a Christian has influenced the way he wrote the book, he has made sure that readers of a different faith are still able to enjoy the book. The first thing that I liked about the book was that at the end of each chapter, the author has provided a list of principles for the reader to consider. At the same time, he has also included a purpose to provide more guidance to the reader. The second thing that I did like about the book was the workbook that was provided by the author that is meant to help the reader discover their purpose as they read on. I will recommend that the reader accesses the workbook on the authors’ website prior to beginning to read the book. This will make it easy for him/her to go through it as they read.
I rate this book a 4 out of 4 since it is well written and an easy read. I really enjoyed reading the book and using the workbook provided. The experiences of the author are a reminder that regardless of one’s age, it’s never too late to find ones purpose. Readers should also know that the book has several references from the Bible. However, anyone looking for a book to help them to identify their purpose and become better will not be disappointed.
