Yes I Found It: Discover the Treasure of a Life of Purpose by Olayinka Oladiran (PhD) is a spellbinding, inspiring, and motivational book that will help readers ask questions that matter and find answers that will dramatically transform their lives. While sharing insights and advice from his personal journey, the author draws the attention of readers to the malaise most people — even the seemingly most successful people — feel; it is the uneasiness of not living the kind of life they were created for, and our fast-paced, competitive culture doesn’t make things better for anyone. This book will help the reader to connect more intimately to their higher calling and find the tools required to answer that calling. Until then, life will remain unfulfilled, empty and restless.

In the author’s own words: “In this book, you will find solutions which you can also adopt as your own solution; you will uncover much more about yourself than you ever knew about.” If you are like most people, then this book will be timely for you. It is one of those books that will help you put aside the distractions of our day-to-day contemporary lifestyle and start digging to find out who we really are. You want to do work that matters. You want to know what you were put in this world for and, once you do, you find real freedom, purpose, and happiness. Yes I Found It: Discover the Treasure of a Life of Purpose is written in a simple, conversational style and the reader is irresistibly drawn into dialogue with the author. Olayinka Oladiran (PhD) writes with confidence and his message comes across clearly and unmistakably. This book is a gift to be shared. It inspired me in many places and I can’t help asking myself serious questions.

What an articulate and heart felt words. This book will speak to anyone who reads it; there are many untold stories lived day in day out. Thanks for reminding us all that it's up to us to change; turn your "should" into a "must" as Tony Robbins would say. Great and inspirational read Olayinka; thank you!

I loved the way this motivating book was told through stories and quotes. The author has a way of telling stories as if you are there watching it happen. Very descriptive and a very good book. It was a quick read, which really made made me take a step back and think about who I am pleasing in my life. Money doesn't create happiness, especially when you don't have time for family. I learned that the hard way and thought I was chasing my dreams. My family is what matters most. Really makes you take a step back and look at your life.

‘I used to wonder how people felt when they said they wanted to create an impact by doing what they were good at. I used to wonder what made them so certain of what they wanted to do.’ Olayinka wrote. In this book he describes his journey of discovery to find his true purpose in life. Although his training was as a Civil Engineer, through inspiration and self-discipline he discovered his true calling in public speaking. He loves being an inspiration to others teaching them to be the best they can be by sharing his personal story of struggle, adventure, failure, motivation to realise his true calling. This is the story he shares in this inspirational book.

Many people live unfulfilled life. Everything is just rat race – just surviving for the day. But we are created for more than that. God created us for greatness, to live with a purpose. The author’s own personal story written in this book will show us clearly how to find the clarity we seek in our life. His story will inspire people reading it to start their own journey to discover their life’s purpose.

He truly discovered the treasure. You need the principles of perseverance, hard work and self confidence. You need them to discover your true self

An amazing book so powerful it jolts you out of indecision concerning life's decision-making process. In a world where receiving wages/salaries is the norm, Olayinka drives the reader to take the rough but necessary journey through uncertainty and fear to taking advantage of one's passion and talents to craft out a living that ultimately brings psychological, spiritual, financial and physical freedom.

This is a great read. Very inspiring and interesting stories which resonate with typical life experience. I planned to read just a few chapters for a start because of my very busy schedule, but I found myself at the 10th Chapter in no time at all (without taking a single break). I recommend this book to individuals who are aiming purposeful living.

This book is a must read!!! The writer has used persuasive language, coupled with humour and much imagery to make me the reader understand where he is coming from and where he is now. I like that he's used experiences of his childhood days to claim ownership of his destiny. One statement that stood out for me is “This one is mine!... I will fight for it, no matter what the challenges were they couldn’t stop me” (p.509). I found that whilst reading I could place myself in the writer's shoes through my own personal experience.

Thank you so much for sharing your experiences as a young man. Having to make a decision such as you have, shows that in today's day and age it's still possible for individuals to follow their dreams and see it become a reality. I have been able to take on board some much needed lessons that I can apply to finding my own dream.

This book is inspirational and can act as ones' personal guide through professional and personal development journeys. I read the first chapter out loud and I could hear my 6-year old, who utterly loves reading, chuckling almost throughout the entire chapter. The stories were told in a very easy to understand, fun but yet direct manner with the message hitting home each time. I would recommend this book to anyone who is struggling to come out of their comfort zone as this book is a good companion to get you up and impacting your environment!

Olayinka tells his story with clear diction and articulation. I've read about half the book so far and this has been time well spent. Cant wait to read how it all unfolds and to find those extra nuggets that will help me in my career. This is a must read for anyone serious about personal and professional development.

I consider myself to be a ferocious reader of Utilitarian books, YES I FOUND IT! by Dr. Olayinka is a fantastic read and in many respect inspired spell bound moments and the euphoria of intellectual capabilities within me much like when I read equally great titles such as rich dad poor dad, think like a champion and etc.

Well done Dr. Olayinka, I look forward to digesting your next write up.

Yes I found it has helped me confirm that I can be whoever I desire to be if I can just have faith and hold on to my conviction. I need to keep moving even when the going gets rough. I only need to take one step at a time. Bravo!
