I don't normally listen to "self help" books so I as far as those types of books go I would put it in the top 10.
About the chicken's always drowning when the floods came and the wife advising the husband to switch to raising ducks.
none really stand out that I can recall.
Probably the law of intentionality - you have to focus with intent if you want to grow.
Would like to listen to it again. It is about how you have to take control of your life with purpose and intent and not just let time go by. Not only do we need to take a more active role in our personal development and growth but we are here to help others achieve their best as well.
John Maxwell never disappoints and this book is no exception. Extraordinary depth and he nicely ties in his traditional topic of leadership. Maxwell's personal growth is present through the development of his books, and as an author has the utmost integrity. Great read, great knowledge and awesome experience 10/10.
Inspiring, practical and well-organized!
This was my first book along the lines of growth, so I can't offer a comparison.
So much of the information was valuable, it's hard to choose just one. However, I'm definitely planning to create a "growth plan" which is one of the suggestions from the book. I'm also planning to re-read with notebook in hand to take notes.
The book is pretty long, so I never planned to listen in one sitting, however I travel a lot for work and I was able to knock a couple hours non stop on several occasions, because it was so interesting. I didn't even miss the radio with this audio book!
Great audio! I'm looking forwarding to listening again, while taking notes as opposed to listening while driving. I really enjoyed it and feel that it provided a lot of information for my growth and development.
I thought he offered a lot of highly useful information. However, when he denigrated the ambitions of his musical director, without offering any useful guidance on how the guy could find something at least close to what he wanted, I discovered I stopped caring about how wonderful this guy was (which he was careful to let us know, oh, fairly often). I guess support people aren't supposed to have ambitions beyond their station. I just wonder what why Maxwell would have told his wife if say, she'd wanted to become a stockbroker.
I tried to continue after that, but after he started explaining how great he was, and how he learned so much from other leaders (all of whom were male), then I felt he was no longer talking to me.
I'm sure there was lots of good information. But I was so turned off by how he treated his musical director that I really couldn't listen to him any more.
His performance was excellent. He has a great voice, and knows how to use it to deliver the material.
No. But it's nonfiction anyway.
This is a good book full of wisdom and stories to back it up. He hits the principles and then provides steps to get there. i have listening to it 10 or more times and pick up new things each time.
Very good book from leadership guru John C. Maxwell. Numerous points to be remembered. Excellent source of valuable information. I recommend this book to all individuals...
Great book and wonderful narration by John Maxwell. Wonderful examples and principles for growth in personal and professional life.
