"Never settle for less than God's best for your life." So says respected preacher, bestselling author, and entrepreneur Jakes (Reposition Yourself) in his latest book. Jakes takes readers on a journey into their instincts—God-given natural aptitudes that, when examined, reveal considerable opportunities and resources to help people succeed in business, overcome obstacles, gain a better sense of direction, stay protected from predators, become better leaders, and build more inspiring relationships, among other things. "Instincts are the product of what we have and what we want to have," writes Jakes. "They are the inner compass guiding us from where we are to where we want to go." A big part of understanding how that inner compass works, though, is heeding Jakes' advice not to settle for less than God's best. Being in touch with inner instincts helps individuals meet life's challenges without fear. This positive book encourages readers to get in touch with their instincts, trust them, and rely on them, because they come from God. Agency: Dupree/Miller & Associates. (May)

Instinct: The Power to Unleash Your Inborn Drive 4.4 out of 5 based on 2 ratings. 28 reviews.

This book has helped me to overcome my struggle of compromising who I am as a person so my family members and friends could accept me. I always had family members and friends telling me what I should do, think and feel in a particular way that was pleasing to them and not the way that I originally do. I must say that I am a positive person for the most part, but to have people to put their opinions and ideas on you can be tiresome. This book helped me to see what I was doing wrong and to work on me, not the person that others want me to be.

The audiobook content is superb, would rather that I heard it read by Bishop T.D. Jakes instead, I found that I could not stay focus on  this readers' voice.

TD Jakes has a powerful presence that translates to the pages of his books. When you read Instinct, your God-given, natural ability is stirred up within you. It almost makes you want to race a cheetah, but I digress. If you have had any doubt about why you are on this earth, what you are made for, or why did God even bother to make you in the first place, this is the perfect book.

Great read, love the analogies that help the principles make sense, and are memorable. This was right on time for me at this moment in my life. The push/nudge of confirmation I needed.

Bishop Jakes, as usual, has changed the way I look at things. Moving into a new season of your life will put you in position to use your instincts. I'm grateful for a writer and preacher who takes his instincts so seriously. Very well written and full of revelation
