Life Is What You Make It: Find Your Own Path to Fulfillment Peter Buffett From composer, musician, and philanthropist Peter Buffett comes a warm, wise, and inspirational book that asks, Which will you 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 onFrom composer, musician, and philanthropist Peter Buffett comes a warm, wise, and inspirational book that asks, Which will you 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 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.

  1. jennifer

    this book was the one present my dad, who is very sick, wanted to give me for my birthday last week he heard about it on XPN despite what the author says many times, dude has a lot of unexamined privilege and quotes every profound thing you d find on a greeting card at whole foods and or a college introduction to thinking seminar all that said there is a certain sweetness in someone telling you not to be limited by self or society and to live the things you want to see happen and the focus on co [...]

    The son of one of world s richest billionaires, Peter Buffett received from his dad what many could call a dubitable inheritance a 90K check at age 19 Period Peter was raised to expect nothing unearned He understood from early on that his father s substantial fortune would never trickle down his way, because he needed to find his own path, prove himself, make his own living, and discover his self worth, self respect, and the meaning of his life all on his own His true inheritance was less tangib [...]

    two quotes I liked from this book The privilege of a lifetime is being who you are Joseph Campbell Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back Concerning all acts of initiative and creation, there is one elementary truth, the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then Providence moves too All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred A whole stream of events issues from [...]

    I d probably give this like 3.5 stars I liked it, it was interesting, was inspired by Buffet s words and path in life Anyone can read this book, but it s a must read for the affluent The title could have been How to Raise Decent Children When You re Filthy Rich The author, Peter Buffet, is the son of Warren Buffet, whose mantra when raising kids was basically, a silver spoon in a child s mouth, may someday become a silver stake in their back Growing up, the Buffets lived a comfortable lifestyle [...]

    I found this book somewhat interesting, really on two levels On one level, I got a little voyeuristic thrill hearing how the world s richest man gave his offspring 90,000 as their inheritance in order to teach them how to live a normal life It was interesting to listen to Buffett describing how he decided to live his life On another level, I found Buffett s description of his career in music quite interesting I would have read the book for either of those two reasons And here you get a bonus, a [...]

    Lovely inspiring book for new careers out there With books like these they all share a common message in different forms and experience GRATITUDE is a key to any human success with the good bad times in our lives Quote from the book your life is yours to create Be grateful for the opportunity Seize it with passion and boldness Whatever you decide to do, commit to it with all your strength and begin it now

  7. Sean Goh

    The silver spoon in the mouth too often becomes the silver dagger in the back an ill considered gift that saps ambition and drains motivation, that deprives the young person of the adventure of finding his or her way.Grasping an opposing point of view was a way of sharpening the mind.He thinks of education, ultimately, as the fulfillment of curiosity The substance of education has to do with understanding human nature both our inmost hearts, and the motives and longings of people very different [...]

  8. Lisa Lachowski

    Life Is What You Make It is one of the most unique and thought provoking non fiction selections I have read Because the central themes revolve around the ethics, morals, and values formulated through Peter Buffett s experiences, I also remain heavily invested in his philosophies.Buffett stresses lessons of trust, responsibility, independence, acceptance, and merit, among other things Personal anecdotes, many including reminiscing instances of his parents and other influential adults, heighten re [...]

    This is a book about personal and fundamental values It is a dangerous and sometimes hypocritical thing to write a book on values in this Nietzschean nihilism world But this book does an outstanding job This is a book that offers condensed and distilled wisdom on parenting, career and life path choice and self value building Peter Buffett is not at all teaching the reader in a pedagogical tone, rather, he conveys important messages through anecdotes, humor and honest passion I am very Lucky to r [...]

  10. Roland Martinez

    This is one of the great motivational and inspirational books I ve read Firstly Buffett shares my worldview that success is defined as a process not just as the material reward generated from that process How many of us have people that we value in our lives that we can never repay with money How would we value a good parent, a good teacher, a good friend Certainly not in dollars and cents This book also talks about the value of commitment to excellence, and how to find one s vocation This is a [...]

  11. Rita Kay

    Lots of common sense in this very readable book The Buffetts really knew how to raise children I particularly enjoyed the chapter on mistakesrhaps because I read it just after I had been notified of mistakes I made in a newsletter article.

  12. Gretchen Pruett

    This is the book that I would have loved to write, if I could write Peter is eloquent, pithy and full of meaningful insights I intend to give this book to both my children, as it sums up all that I tried to convey as a parent I think this book is destined to become a classic.

  13. Lucas Remmerswaal

    The central theme, is passion Finding your passion is crucial to living a successful life I hope kids will understand this when they discover my book 13 Habits that made me Billions

  14. Jill

    I found this book last year and checked it out from the library The ideas and presentation appealed to me enough that I bought my own copy of the book so I could mark it up.And I did Then I set it aside for several months Picked it back up and read a few chapters Set it aside again.Picked it up a final time and dove into it reading hard, marking up the book, asking questions about how I see life similarly or totally different And I do I believe in the idea that there is nothing new under the sun [...]

  15. Patricia

    I enjoyed this book very much The writing style was easy, which made reading it a pleasure.The message of this book is a good one, not necessarily unique, but presented in such an easy going, laid back way as to seem kind of new.I didn t realize the author was the son Warren Buffett until he told me so this was probably a good thing, as I may have had a bit of a preconception going in is this guy for real, or is he good at covering up his privilege, can a man from this background even though I h [...]

  16. Charlotte

  17. Sumayya

    I don t like this sort of psychology I couldn t find my favourite chapter either all in all it wasn t for me except for the last quote I like it and that s it.

  18. Edith

    It s alright book This is the one theme book I was curious at first but the content was neither exactly intriguing nor surprising Completed 30%.

  20. Jordan

    Not as engaging as I thought it would be Two takeaways 1 Life is what you make of it 2 Nobody is deserving of anything

  21. Sharanpreet Singh

    Being grateful for life s non materialistic gifts and committing to one s vocation is what a person can learn from this book.

  22. Seema Rao

    While not groundbreaking or poetic, this short book reminds you that your path in life is neither a product of fate or destiny You can make better mental choices to get where you hope to go.

  23. Stacey

    Interesting story about Peter Buffet, the son of Warren Buffet It was a very interesting take on life, one of my favorite quotes from the books was Your life is yours to create Be grateful for the opportunity Seize it with passion and boldness Whatever you decide to do, commit to it with all your strength and begin it now It is also a success story on parenting and Warren Buffet and his wife did a great job.

    I am not sure where I first encountered this book I was interested in Peter Buffett s story in part because for almost 30 years I was a Berkshire Hathaway shareholder and in part because what I knew of him was interesting on its own account.Peter Buffett won what his father calls the Ovarian Lottery or he was born with a silver dagger in his back He started at Stanford and dropped out after several semesters His father gave him a small nest egg and he essentially went off on his own He pursued m [...]

  25. Pamela

    This book felt mostly like Buffett was writing to the one percenters, you know the super rich Perhaps he thought he was writing for everyone but he wasn t That s not who he is Albeit he only got 90,000 when he turned of age, so he wasn t given everything In the epilogue Buffett stated that the book really was just him thinking out loud, not really intended to be a self help book or anything like that No, it isn t anything like that at all Just a few good ways to think about living your life, if [...]
