The following is what I liked best:

The section on Goals

They MUST be activities that are: written, personal, specific, achievable, measurable, and time sensitive.

The Quotes:

"You can not make any progress when you are facing the wrong way." & the another one by Charles 'Tremendous' Jones who said "The only difference between the person you are today and who you will be in 5 years come from the books you read and the people you associate with."

The Benchmarking idea:

To attain success you should ONLY pick 3 to 5 areas to work on & grow in at one time.

The section on Choices:

In order to make progress it will involve 3 choices: to gain something, to lose something, or to trade something

and when you choose: pick the former rather than latter:

Achievement over affirmation

Excellence over acceptability

Personal growth over pleasure

Future potential over personal gain

Narrow focus over scattered interests

Significance over security

And finally the Laws on Developing others:

Take someone with you: "There is no success without a successor"

Format: Hardcover
The Roadmap to Success is by far the best motivational book I have ever read. It was the first book that I have read by Maxwell, and since then I have read four others. He teaches us a new way to think about success. Clearly stated success is: knowing your purpose, growing to reach your potential, and sowing seeds to help others. It is amazing how much better you perform and how much more you enjoy life when you view success through this framework. If you have been successful so far in your life, this book will help reinforce any doubts you have about your choices and reaffirm the actions you have taken. If you are committed to growth and development then this book is a great start to helping you put aside your fears to get the most out of your life. If you are closed minded, resistant to change and generally a pessimistic person this book is not for you. While those people that continue to make excuses for their failures or the way their life turned out will never succeed, those who have the right mindset and follow Maxwell's advise will surely go far in life and reap the beiefits and joys of success.

This title is not merely an inspirational book, and certainly is not pop-psychology. Maxwell's latest work (actually previously released in 1997 with different titleing - now with minor revisions) is by far the BEST work I have ever read in the area of personal development. In it, Maxwell lays out the foundation for understanding true success - essentially: Knowing Your Purpose, Developing Your Maximim Potential (which comes from the former), and Sowing Mentoring Seeds In Others.
Each of these sections is well written and makes a strong, as well as compelling case for personal change and lifelong development (regardless of age). Maxwell clearly articulates the often difficult challenges to personal development and provides practical suggestions for overcoming them. The reader cannot, in good conscience, go from one chapter to the next without applying what has been learned. Maxwell asks you to sign the end of one of the early chapters, committing the reader to a life of excellence! Each subsequent chapter has more interesting yet simple exercises to work thru, helping to ensure the readers interaction and active learning.
Some major themes include: The true meaning of success, keys to defining your purpose, fulfilling your purpose practically, attitude as key to success, how to develop and maintain a good attitude, how to weather detours on the success journey, and much, much more. This book changed my life! Buy one for yourself and a few copies for those you care about who have the slightest capacity for greatness... this book will surely help facilitate their next level. Good reading!

I wish I had this book available to me 30 years ago. The problem is that most young people (like myself when I was young) don't read such valuable resourses. I may have been the same. If you want someone you really care about who is beginning a carrer rather in a job or school this book brings to light some very important concepts that makes you think about what is truly important in life. John Maxwell has put many of his previous ideas into this one book and pulls it all together. This book is a great resourse for speaking before future leaders at any level. If you read the first chapter and are not sold you need some serious time to evaluate what you are doing in life. Maxwell uses all of the areas that you need and developps them in a consice manner value, attitude, goal setting, vision, leadership,commitment allows you to create your future with those close to you at home and work.

Format: Hardcover
I am definitely a John Maxwell fan. This man is truly gifted and knows how to communicate so all can understand and benefit.This book was great but even better if read as a sequel. Don't get me wrong this is a stand alone book by itself but I am glad that I first read The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership. The 21 Laws is much more dry and technical while this book is personal in its application. You will better understand the process by first knowing the driving principles.There are several excellent lists that are explained in detail but my favorite is entitled, "How to Take Others for a (Life Changing) Ride. #2 states to , "Limit Who You Take Along". This one explanation alone is worth the book. It should prevent burn out and minimize disappointments.Page 177 has a chart on communication styles and the results. He applies this not only to the business world but to the family unit as well.I particulary like the chapter, What Should I Pack in My Suitcase. This will help me redeem my "downtime" as I travel. This guy is a genius.
