Top customer reviews
And with all dreams or goals, Maxwell greatly emphasizes that there are no shortcuts. The journey towards a dream simply takes plenty of sacrifice and contact with those who may assist on the road to where one wants to arrive; it is not a journey that is taken alone if one wants to succeed - everybody needs someone to share their dream with in any capacity. Importantly, the book is highly motivational with one anecdote after another from people who have ever had a dream in mind. The quotes, questions, and self-tests are very helpful for any who would like to determine if their dream is worth pursing.
Reading this book awakened my spirit to pursue my dreams but also brought insight to reason that there is sacrifice to make and funds to incur in this dream. The question really is will I step out to take my place in the dream?
My imagination was raised as I discovered that the dream surpasses and exceeds me, it goes beyond me and the purpose could as well be universal bringing healing to those less fortunate than myself. I guess we wait and see if I will take this new insight and actually step out to start living my life and not sit down behind a desk pretending to live and enjoy doing what I am doing now.
On the whole, it is a great read indeed! I guess it is one of the reasons why I will keep reading even on my death bed! There is no substitute to a well researched and written hard cover book! Simply none.
Working through the ten questions in this book is not easy, but it is helpful to have such a clear game plan to follow. It is also widely applicable, whether you want to start a new business or work toward being a better mother, or in my personal case, laying the foundation for a ministry. While I have grown tired of reading stories and quotes from other people in Maxwell's other books, the ones in this book were particularly helpful and time allotted for them was better balanced with the practical advice. This book is going to become the graduation gift that I give to all graduates, especially the ones with big dreams. I can't think of a more useful book to give!
