📙 Life Is What You Make It: Find Your Own Path to Fulfillment by Peter Buffett, narrator Peter Buffett


4.3


From composer, musician, and philanthropist Peter Buffett comes a warm, wise, and inspirational book that asks which you will choose: the path of least resistance or the path of potentially greatest satisfaction?You may think that with a last name like his, Buffett has enjoyed a life of endless privilege. But the son of billionaire investor Warren Buffett says that the only real inheritance handed down from his parents was a philosophy: Forge your own path in life. It is a creed that has allowed him to follow his own passions, establish his own identity, and reap his own successes.In Life Is What You Make It, Buffett expounds on the strong set of values given to him by his trusting and broadminded mother, his industrious and talented father, and the many life teachers he has met along the way.Today's society, Buffett posits, has begun to replace a work ethic, relishing what you do, with a wealth ethic, honoring the payoff instead of the process. We confuse privilege with material accumulation, character with external validation. Yet, by focusing more on substance and less on reward, we can open doors of opportunity and strive toward a greater sense of fulfillment. In clear and concise terms, Buffett reveals a great truth: Life is random, neither fair nor unfair.From there, it becomes easy to recognize the equal dignity and value of every human life. Our circumstances may vary, but our essences do not. We see that our journey in life rarely follows a straight line but is often met with false starts, crises, and blunders. How we push through and persevere in these challenging moments is where we begin to create the life of our dreams - from discovering our vocations to living out our bliss to giving back to others.Personal and revealing, instructive and intuitive, Life Is What You Make It is about transcending your circumstances, taking up the reins of your destiny, and living your life to the fullest. ©2010 Peter Buffett (P)2010 Random House

"My new all-time favorite book"

Amazing book and very inspiring as well. Loved every minute of it and the fact that Peter Buffett himself narrated the book made it even more personal.

"Read this book"

if you consider handing a significant amount money to your kids. Money at a young age can destroy ambition and potential talent. Give this book to your kids if they already have the money. Make them live their own life and earn their own living. This way they will be proud of themselves and enjoy the extra money in a reasonable way.

"lacked depth for the average person"

I enjoyed listening to this book. I believe the author was honest and sincere. I think the best part of the book was listening to his outlook on life. The Buffett family has such a great outlook. I only ranked the book a 3 because it wasn't very applicable to my life. My outlook on life was already that you can choose which direction to go in life, so this book didn't offer any advice that I really wanted to act on.

"Great honest advise"

Peter knows a lot about life, through a lot of experience and great parents. And he shares a few thoughts, mainly about not following society an all aspects and to follow what we think will make us happier. And that is the way to self respect.
