Book review of “3 Things Successful People Do: The Road Map That Will Change Your Life” by John C. Maxwell. Maxwell is an internationally recognized leadership expert, speaker, coach, and author who has sold over 19 million books. Dr. Maxwell is the founder of EQUIP and the John Maxwell Company, organizations that have trained more than 5 million leaders worldwide.
In their words “Life is not a winner-take-all championship game but a an excruciatingly long season with multiple chances every day to learn from losses, grow from successes, and make the appropriate changes along the way.”
3 things successful people do:
- Knowing your purpose in life
- Growing to reach your maximum potential
- Sowing seeds that benefit others
Great quote from Maxwell “The problem for most people who want to be successful is not that they can’t achieve success. The main obstacle for them is that they misunderstand success.”.
These are my takeaways after reading this book:
- Forget the past
- Focus on the future
- Success is in the journey itself
- Learn from losses and grow from successes
- Prepare for detours and make changes along the way
- Concentrate on continual improvement
