Earlier reviewers are put off by Maxwell's "preaching". What do you expect? He was a preacher when he wrote the book!!! It still amazes me that people are still so hypersensitive to whenever Christianity and the Bible are mentioned in a positive light in a book. Perhaps those same reviewers are the very ones who need an attitude adjustment the most!!!
Read, enjoy, and be encouraged to know you have the Lord ready to help you when you need an attitude change.
Winning Attitude explains how much our attitude effects our lives and what we can do to choose to have a positive attitude daily. Maxwell offers example after example of leaders throughout history who's attitude brought them to success even when those around them said it could not be done... even after they had failed time and time again.
Winning Attitude is one of Maxwell's earlier leadership books and was written from a decidedly Christian/Biblical perspective. Even if you have no interest in Maxwell's religious perspective the points he outlines are solid principles that every business person should take note of.
The book covers four main points:
I. The Consideration of Your Attitude
II. The Construction of Your Attitude
III. The Crashing of Your Attitude
IV. The Changing of Your Attitude
Each section paves the way for the next as Maxwell outlines how our attitude can make or break us in our professional and personal lives. This book is about creating a mentality for success. Every person's success begins and ends with our attitude.
Maxwell's book is terrific. Many authors tell how to have a great attitude, but Maxwell explains that we need more than just directions... We need guidance, and at times, we need help.
Maxwell reminds us that when we need help, there is a power greater than ourselves which can do for us what we can't do for ourselves. Yes, the book does contain Christian references. However, what is built upon that foundation is pure right thinking and common sense.
My greatest challenge has been my thinking, and Maxwell provides a solution.
