The Art of Work A Proven Path to Discovering What You Were Meant to Do- #sponsored

Disclosure: BookLook Bloggers has provided me with a complimentary copy of this book or advanced reading copy. However, all opinions are my own.

As a non-traditional college student and someone who is working on my BA in human resource 

management, I am always searching for great books to help guide me toward my career path. The Art  
of Work written by Jeff Goins is a great book for those looking for guidance when you feel lost on a 

path to success.

The book is filled with excellent advice for discovering what you are really meant to do. Broken into 

3 parts, Jeff Goins gives sage advice along with various quotes that motivate and encourage.

My favorite chapter is 'Why Failure is Your Friend'. I have always been taught it is okay to fail and you cannot succeed unless you fail. W.C. Fields said it best, "If at first you don't succeed, try, try again. Then quit. There's no point in being a damn fool about it."  How many times after we fail do we want to give up? Too many to count for myself, but The Art of Work A Proven Path to Discovering What You Were Meant to Do isn't a book about giving up, it's a book about what you are meant to do by not giving up.

Book Description

Jeff Goins, a brilliant new voice counting Seth Godin and Jon Acuff among his fans, explains how to abandon the status quo and live a life that matters with true passion and purpose.
The path to your life’s work is difficult and risky, even scary, which is why few finish the journey. This is a book about discovering your life’s work, that treasure of immeasurable worth we all long for. It’s about the task you were born to do.
As Jeff Goins explains, the search begins with passion but does not end there. Only when our interests connect with the needs of the world do we begin living for a larger purpose. Those who experience this intersection experience something exceptional and enviable. Though it is rare, such a life is attainable by anyone brave enough to try.
Through personal experience, compelling case studies, and current research on the mysteries of motivation and talent, Jeff shows readers how to find their vocation and what to expect along the way.
