5.0 out of 5 stars Grow Your Attitude Daily to Accomplish More!!!!!, 3 May 2004
Donald Mitchell "Jesus Loves You!" (Thanks for Providing My Reviews over 124,000 Helpful Votes Globally) - See all my reviews
Everyone would benefit from reading this little, but powerful, book and carrying it around in a pocket to reread, as appropriate, daily. Many sections could be reread in just a few minutes. The whole book can be read by most in less than two hours.
I highly recommend this as both a book for you to read and reread, and as a book to share with others through gifts. Attitude 101 is a thoughtful high school or college graduation gift, for example, that will provide benefits for decades.
The book addresses several key dimensions of personal attitude: Its impact; its formation; and how your future is affected by your attitude. Examples come poignantly from the Bible, sports, inventors, celebrities, writers, politics and Dr. Maxwell's own life. Many of the stories added to my knowledge. Did you know that David had five stones with him to face Goliath not because David feared he would miss . . . but because Goliath had four giant sons whom David might also have had to face?
Whatever is missing from your attitude . . . this little book can help you find it and apply a remedy. On different days, you will have varying needs to improve your attitude. Rereading the right sections in this book will help you develop a better attitude and keep it focused on moving you forward just when and where you should be going.
As Dr. Maxwell says, success is:
"Knowing your purpose in life,
Growing to reach your maximum potential,
Sowing seeds that benefit others."
The book combines all of the elements you've probably come to like about his books on leadership, teamwork, thinking and purposeful living. Seeing it all together in a brief form makes the message clearer somehow. I liked that.
His epigrams are wonderful. Here's another of my favorites for helping others form good attitudes:
"Value people.
Praise efforts.
Reward performance."
Particularly meaningful to me were the reminders that temporary setbacks (what some see as "failures") are good ways to learn how to be more effective. If we can combine lots of attempts with an ability to emotionally forget how they made us feel when the attempts didn't work, we can accomplish a great deal.
The book ends with how leaders can grow their potential. The Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr. is the example. Leaders become greater by giving up more in serving others.
May God bless you, Dr. Maxwell, and all those who read and apply this wonderful book!
