Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

Joel Osteen is known as "The Smiling Preacher" and he has ample cause to be so ebullient. Not only is he the author of half a dozen bestsellers and a televangelist with more than twenty million viewers around the world; he is also the bearer of very good news about enhancing our lives. In this new release, he identifies and describes eight characteristics shared by goal achievers. Just as importantly, he explains how readers can not only dream big dreams, but actually achieve them to everyone's betterment. A surefire bestseller in two languages.

Publishers Weekly
09/01/2014
Osteen (Your Best Life Now) has his cultural and theological critics even as millions of followers enjoy his television broadcasts and buy his books. The pastor of the 45,000-member Lakewood Community Church in Houston acts as cheerleader and encourager, as pastors ought to do. The newest iteration of his simple belief system offers eight maxims to help a person understand and imitate the qualities of a successful individual: commit to excellence, serve others, etc. Osteen's eight undeniable winner qualities include the quintessentially American injunction to "think positive," and the book reads as much as business advice or self-help as it does pastoral counsel. It's clearly intended to speak beyond a small Christian audience; references to biblical sources and stories are general and lack detail. The question thoughtful people of faith ought to consider in thinking about Osteen's fast-food theology is, why are people eating it up? The question for booksellers is how many copies to stock. Agents: Shannon Marven and Jan Miller Rich, Dupree Miller & Associates. (Oct.)

    I Also Recommend:

    When I started reading You Can, You Will: 8 Undeniable Qualities

    When I started reading You Can, You Will: 8 Undeniable Qualities of a Winner by Joel Osteen, I was immediately attracted to the energy and encouraging message of his words. This is my first book from Joel. I guarantee that you will probably stay up to midnight trying to finish this book. I have been reading it since it became available for purchase on my Nook, but I came back to buy a real copy to underline and highlight the words that really impacted me. The key concept in the book of running a race is woven through the chapters, as is how to deal with the setbacks and challenges of everyday life are revealed and how to overcome your obstacles to success. You Can, You Will: 8 Undeniable Qualities of a Winner by Joel Osteen is an encouraging book to read and I highly recommend it. I'd also recommend that you buy another great book that help change my life and actually brought me closer than ever to my mother, it's call When God Stopped Keeping Score. When God Stopped Keeping Score is an intimate, yet unflinching look at the power of God and forgiveness. It too is a must a read and you will understand why when you read it.

    This is another hit by Joel he will inspire with his words. Those giving poor reviews are those who have never read his books and just giving personal opinion.

    Good self help book

    The book has some useful self help advice like keeping your goal in view, avoiding negative people and people who manipulate you, and having a positive attitude and expecting good things. Some of the examples in this book have been given before in other books and sermons such as Joel's hairdresser who Joel had to get away from because she was bringing him down with her problems.

    I think Joel is not on point with his chapter on excellence, where he advises employees that the way to succeed is to go the extra mile and come in early and work late, don't get coffee or wander around the office, etc. and you'll be rewarded with promotions. Anyone working in an office knows the people that get promoted are frequently the ones who do the opposite but know how to play office politics. Joel has never worked for anyone but himself and his father. If he would have worked in an office for an employer he would know that advice is not the way to succeed. It is good advice if you are working for yourself since you will benefit from going the extra mile in everything you do.

    I don't think Joel does a good job mixing religion with self help. The religion part comes off as a throw in to make a point and he leans more heavily on the Old Testament than the New Testament. If you want to read a religion-based self help philosophy then Norman Vincent Peale is the author to read. Joel also has never graduated from a divinity school (or even graduated college) or been ordained as a minister. Nobody ever seems to question his lack of credentials as a pastor. He is basically a layman who gives good self help advice under the guise of being a preacher.

    I also noticed on at least three occasions that sentences were missing a preposition, specifically it looked like the word OF was missing. While Joel is going on about his commitment to excellence, somebody did not proofread this relatively short book and notice the missing words.

    Another TV evangalist from the south on the Church channel, who's message is all about MONEY. Olsteen is rich because he's a smooth

    You did it again, Joel Osteen!!! You are one blessed man, Joel!!! Can one significant factor that drives your success be the fact that I have never heard you pass judgment or make false allegations toward others. Perhaps, it is this main principle of the BIBLE that you determinedly follow that continues to make you a sincere, authentic, positive preacher!! Thank you so much for this book Joel Osteen. This book is making a positive difference in my life and in the life of others around me. THANK YOU!!!!

    I really enjoyed this book. I loved how honest and straight forward Joel Osteen can be. I felt so inspired by reading his advice, which really made sense. I think everyone needs to read this to see how they can become a much better person within themselves and for God.
    A Great and Quick Read

    I would highly recommend this book,! I'm not exactly sure what made me like exactly. A lot of the book features replays of some of Osteen's TV sermons (with some new material) and normally that would turn me away in a book. All of that "positive psychology" can seem over the top, sometimes. I found, however, that I could not put the book down once I began reading it! Joel' s infectious optimism coupled with practical advice drawn from the Bible, works to create something that will get you in a positive mood.to do that one thing that can improve your life. Compared to the first book, it was a little more nuanced. It was more confident, more action-oriented, and more focused.

    If you like your motivation with a dash of divine guidance, this book is for you. The eight qualities of a winner are easy to attain, and if everyone behaved like is suggested, we would not only all be successful, but the world would be a happier place! This book is the latest in a long list of books about living the life I was meant to live that have been calling me to be read. I would have gotten a lot out of it even if I wasn't a Joel Junkie....(or Osteeniac?)...either way, it was a great book!
