To say that this book is about improving your life every day is an understatement. This book will show you how to revolutionize your life in such a way that it will change your life into the life of your dreams.
You are going to discover how to live a life that works. A life of peace, joy, happiness, and abundance in every area of your life.
I’ll be the first to say that I am a huge fan of Joel Osteen. His first book, “Your Best Life Now” is a book that I have been deeply influenced by. However, as good as “Your Best Life Now” is, (definitely 5 stars), “Become a Better You” is even better.
Because he seems like such a happy positive person, it’s hard to believe that Joel Osteen has ever had any problems. It’s also hard to believe that he would understand what it’s like to come from the bottom and overcome some of the worst problems a person could have but he does.
Osteen offers seven keys to improving your life:
- Keep pressing forward (This means to never quit)
- Be positive toward yourself
- Develop better relationships
- Form better habits
- Embrace the place where you are
- Develop your inner life
- Stay passionate about life
One of the things I liked best about this book is that at the end of each section he offers a set of action points. These action points cover the main points of the entire section. I found that studying these every day helped me make a lot of progress much more quickly than if I hadn’t.
Another thing I liked about this book is that it has 31 chapters. This makes it a good choice to also use as a daily reading to help you further study the material. I’ve read the book several times this way, and it made it much easier to apply the information. There’s just so much good stuff in this book that will help you. You can’t read it just one time. It’s a book you will want to read over and over.
Two things I was absolutely sure of after I read this book is this: First, God really loves me. He loves all of us, and He really wants to bless us. This means that all of the hell fire and brimstone taught in church is an injustice done to those of us who truly believe. God wants to connect with us, not hurt us.
The second thing is that Joel Osteen truly understands people, and he is committed to helping others achieve the life God has in store for us. I didn’t find his teaching to be shallow at all, and it’s definitely not the “I’m good, you’re good, God is good” type of teaching he has been accused of.
The teaching in this book is completely biblical, and even better, it will change your life. If you want a life that’s even better than you can imagine, you definitely want this book.
