Sintesi dell'editore

The Four Purposes of Life was born from Dan Millman's decades-long search to make sense of life. He distills decades of experience into a concise map of the journey - the full scope of what we're each here to accomplish here on planet Earth.

It puts together, for the first time, essential elements from the "peaceful warrior teachings" in their full and proper context --- providing a burst of clarity to bring our lives into sharper focus. This backstage tour of life begins with the proposition that we are here to fulfill (not one but) four purposes:

  • 1. Learning Life's Lessons
  • 2. Finding Your Career and Calling
  • 3. Fulfilling Your Hidden Life Path
  • 4. Attending to This Arising Moment

A few highlights include:

  • the higher purpose of daily life
  • twelve required lessons in the school of life
  • how to make better decisions in career and relationships
  • the qualities of leadership no matter who you are
  • a mysterious system to clarifying your hidden calling
  • keys to mastering the most important purpose of all

Well worth readin more than once.

What made the experience of listening to The Four Purposes of Life the most enjoyable?

The way he outlined it, then when deeper into each one.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Socrates is my favorite as I read about him in the"The Peaceful Warrior", and I love sorcerers.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Dan Millman moved me when he relates to what he's been thru.

Any additional comments?

I have read almost all the Carlos Castenada series and Peaceful Warrior by Dan Millman. He has a way of showin' thru his own life experiences, the knowledge he's learned.

Really good...and reeeaally not good

Overall, it's worthwhile. If you don't believe in horoscopes. As tempting as it might be to listen to the whole thing yourself...and maybe you should anyway...I would still like to recommend skipping chapter 4 completely. It very easily puts a damper on the insights of the preceeding and proceeding chapters.

The good:
Great thinking from chapters 1-3, 5, and 6.


The really bad:
Chapter 4 was essentially a horoscope. I was hoping it'd get me, or maybe deep down I had already decided it wouldn't. But frankly, I think chapter 4 was straight stupid. It describes how the date of your birth gives insight to your strengths, weaknesses, and purpose. And it goes on to say that it doesn't, but does, but doesn't. It was the silliest thing! Continues to describe similarities between various known people to affirm this "birth number" thing. And doesn't go on to make the point that all these similarities are shared between all the people mentioned regardless of their "birth number."

I suppose I may be in the wrong in possibly misinterpreting this section as well as allowing my interpretation to hinder my perspective on the book, but considering 1/3 of the book advocates the opposite of the whole point...it's pretty ridiculous.

Achieve a higher sense of self and awareness. Then surrender into the idea that the date you were born has some mystical bearing upon your life.

Sure your life would be different had you been born a day sooner or later, and maybe your path and purpose would be different. But arbitrary numbers that represent the day you were born have no significance in the play of your life. That is of course unless you allow it to, I suppose. In which case, more power to you. But in my opinion, that way may lead to success, but is inevitably lesser than if you refrain from silly nonsense. The way I see it, less power to you.

Thought this is a proper book until chapter 4

I thought this is a serious personal development book, until I entered chapter 4 where by the author turns this book into horoscope.

Yeah right, your life path determined by your DOB turned into number and decide your path.

Nothing special

Very basic stuff. He lost me at "life number" to find your life path. There are so many books with deeper content in Audible

Articulate, concise and to the point on vision and purpose

Lovely full bodied almost summary of all the main take seats from Dan’s books honing in on the main message of living a life full of purpose and on point with our unique vision. Every book this man writes speaks to thr heart of the matter and can help, I feel, almost anyone find peace in themselves with respect to this collective journey we’re all on if only ready and brave enough to take this leap of faith. Thank you Dan for being one of my fave and most effective teachers along my life’s path.
