Author Raymond Shinaultabout this book: GLENPOOL, Okla. — Author Raymond Shinault takes readers on a quest to find their life's purpose in the nationwide release of his new motivational book, "Living Your Life's Purpose."

In "Living Your Life's Purpose," author Shinault shares the importance of knowing what individuals really want in their lives. He points readers to the way how this can be accomplished — by choosing to live their lives through purposeful living. Enjoying what one does and having it valued and appreciated is perhaps one of the easiest ways to find what one's purpose truly is. In fact, Shinault's rule goes: If it's making a positive difference in the world, then that's your purpose.

Shinault, who is based in Oklahoma, is the author of several books, including "High School Dropout." He was a college dropout himself, twice, until he turned out to become an experienced professional truck driver for 20 years. Aside from that, he is also regarded as one of the most dynamic motivational speakers of leadership and personal and purposeful living development. He also learned late in life that living his life on purpose was the only way to win in life. He even believes that today's college and high school students and organizations need a road map where they can get directions for planning a life of successful extraordinary living.

 Can passion and purpose be uncovered by asking why we do things?

In Living Your Life's Purpose, Raymond Shinault explores ways we can live our lives with intention. He challenges a reader to achieve fulfillment by discovering a purpose for their life, and then working towards it.

Can passion and purpose be uncovered by asking why we do things? Raymond believes so, and suggests in the opening chapter that a life without purpose is like a fruitless trip to the market; a waste. This thought is his theme for the book; it is devoted to promoting the discovery of passion in us all.

Examples of how to find help and encouragement along the way are a continuous part of the narrative. Raymond uses the 'leg-up' he received from his father's belief and encouragement as an example of how anyone can be boosted by a support group that believes in them.

Naturally, goal setting and the making of a life's 'roadmap' are given a lot of emphasis. In his past, Raymond drove a lot of trucks; he uses the analogy of roadmaps well when he describes how to get your life on track.

Raymond makes a point that those who succeed have first decided what success looks like, then believed they could achieve it, and lastly applied themselves until their destination was reached. He gives examples from the life and teaching of several high achievers from history, Jim Rohn and Helen Keller among them.

The last chapter contains many examples of those who believed in themselves and went after their goals with passion, many from simple poor backgrounds. There would be few readers who would not see something of themselves in these stories and fail to be inspired.

Raymond Shinault's Living Your Life's Purpose contains a lot of repetition of key points, but for those who have not read motivational texts or thought much about self-development , a lot of reinforcement is likely to have positive effects. [by Anthony Smits]
