Listen to Your Life: Following Your Unique Path to Extraordinary Success

by Valorie Burton

Review  |   Author Bio  |  Read an Excerpt


“Vocation does not come from willfulness, no matter how lofty a person's intentions. It comes from listening to and accepting one's true self, with its limits as well as its possibilities. So says orator, author, and life coach Valorie Burton in her latest book, Listen to Your Life.

“Burton has written an inspiring text that highlights the interconnection between listening to one's life and achieving success. She tells readers at the outset that listening to their lives involves connecting to God, themselves, and the people they meet and work with. She underscores the importance of following the seven basic principles in the journey toward a purposeful life: connection; self-curiosity; vision; creativity; expectancy; flow; and abundance. Burton maintains that by adhering to these precepts, readers will find success in every key area of their lives.

“Written in an engaging style, the book is divided into seven chapters that can be studied by individuals for self-improvement or discussed in small groups for feedback and life sharing. To assist this, at the end of each chapter Burton provides reflective assignments for her readers to complete.

“Burton gives a practical message for readers looking for find real meaning and eternal purpose for their lives. Anyone who wants to understand the big picture of what life is all about should read this book.” -- Dr. James C. Hendrix, Christian Book
