Filled with inspirational anecdotes, laugh-out-loud humor, and thought provoking ideas, this book is an eye-opening journey that when put into practice, will make a considerable impact in your professional and personal life. As a master storyteller, Steve expounds on the essentials towards Making a Difference – Purpose, Passion, and Pride. Where you live, the money you possess, the money you stand to inherit, your marriage, the car you drive, and the friends you appear to have are outward signs of success and not necessarily indicators of inner fulfillment. The amount we earn or the success we achieve produces emptiness unless it is in line with a purpose beyond ourselves.This book demonstrates that you don’t need a master’s degree or a doctorate to make the world a better place. Making a Difference confirms that purpose is the essential ingredient to motivation and the ultimate path to making a difference; passion is what allows you to overcome challenges and disregard people who try to extend their misfortunes and negative outlook to you; and pride is about you and your expectations. It is about realizing the importance of your role in life and taking pride in everything you do! This book is a profound idea that will impact your life.Foreword by HERB KELLEHER Co-Founder, Chairman Emeritus and Former CEO of SOUTHWEST AIRLINES....

Making A Difference: A Matter Of Purpose, Passion & Pride Reviews
I heard Steve Gilliland speak at one of our faculty meetings a few months back, and it was fantastic. He was funny, engaging, and made good points. This book, though? Eh. Maybe it's because I heard him speak on the same topic already, or maybe it's because he's better as a speaker, but I didn't enjoy the book as much as I though I would have. It reads more as a self-help book (maybe that's another reason), but most of it is filled with lengthy quotes from other people, not enough set-up for the quotes, and cliches you often see on nice photos on Pinterest (and quite a few copy mistakes as well). If you're down on your luck and feel a bit helpless, this is for you. Otherwise, just find a video of him speaking.
Another well written book by Steve Gilliland. As with Hide Your Goats, it's something that enables the reader to look at himself/herself and figure out ways to become better not only for yourself, but for others as well. For those who are looking to take a journey of self-development and growth, this, in my opinion, is something worth reading.
Just ok. Typical self-help book that fizzled at the end. I'm excited, though, to look further into his recommended reading list. Steve is an incredible speaker; I preferred seeing him live to this particular book.
A must read for all people looking to make the difference in their life and the lives of others.
This book had its moments, but all in all, I couldn't really enjoy it. Ultimately it seemed like just another self-help book, which I find tedious on the whole.
