"The first time I met John Maxwell, I could tell that he and I shared the same values. He cares about people and he wants to help them.

As is typical of John's writing style, he shares a number of simple but very powerful ideas and actions you can take to get some momentum on your mission like; start small but believe big, search until you find your why, add value to others from your sweet spot, connect with like-minded people, and more.
I also enjoy the stories he tells about how he came to prominence in his field, and it should not be a surprise: He got around people like Norman Vincent Peale, W. Clement Stone, Zig Ziglar, etc. and invested in their books, conferences and other resources. He was (and still is) intentional about his personal growth and development and he encourages you to do the same throughout the book.
The only reason I am not giving this 5 stars is because it's one of those books that you have to read twice. Once to get an overall feel and once to go back and do the "assignments" at the end of each chapter.
So many great tips to catapult yourself into a life of intention ... but not something you can just do overnight.
Definitely a book that I highlighted a ton and will go back to again as a continue my journey to a new lifestyle.
The book also teaches you to be humble and I loved one quote that says "humble people don't think less of themselves, but think of themselves less." Humility is far more valuable when you have been successful, that quote helps me to remember that.
What I really like is Maxwell's emphasis that our story can have an impact on others. And each of us have a story worth sharing. He challenge to us is to take the initiative in writing our story and make it count.
One take away I really like (that I'm going to post on my wall) are the "Five Essential Values of Adding Value to Others". It's just a great reminder of what key things we can do.
1. To Add Value to Others I Must First Value Myself
2. To Add Value to Others I Must Value Others
3. To Add Value to Others I Must Value What Others Have Done for Me
4. To Add Value to Others I Must Know and Relate to What Others Value
5. To Add Value to Others I Must Make Myself More Valuable
If you take time to make everyone of these a goal, how could you not have a story of impact?
Note: the Kindle version seems to lack a Table of Contents page. If you are having a hard time choosing between Kindle and Hardback. Grab the Hardback. (Or get both).
I've read most of his books and it seems like each new one is more potent than the one before it.
I recommend this book along with three others from the same author:
Winning with people
Put your dream to the test
Everyone communicates few people connect
