John C. Maxwell, number-one New York Times best-selling author, helps listeners take the first steps to living a life that matters in Intentional Living.
We all have a longing to be significant. We want to make a contribution, to be a part of something noble and purposeful. But many people wrongly believe significance is unattainable. They worry that it's too big for them to achieve. That they have to have an amazing idea, be a certain age, have a lot of money, or be powerful or famous to make a real difference.
The good news is that none of those things is necessary for you to achieve significance and create a lasting legacy. The only thing you need to achieve significance is to be intentional. And to do that, all you need to do is start. You can't make an impact sitting still and doing nothing. Every major accomplishment that's ever been achieved started with a first step. Sometimes it's hard; other times it's easy; but no matter what, you have to do it if you want to get anywhere in life.
In Intentional Living, John Maxwell will help you take that first step, and the ones that follow, on your personal path through a life that matters.

I choose to live by choice, not by chance
To make changes, not excuses
To be motivated, not manipulated
To be useful, not used
To excel, not compete
I choose self-esteem, not self-pity
I choose to listen, to my inner voice, not random opinions
"Great read if you're looking for purpose"
I read this book in 2 days. Many great points and great illistrations between good intentions and living intentionally. Very helpful with self reflection and how to take small steps that aren't overwhelming.
"One of my favorite Maxwell books."
I have read or listened to John Maxwell for at least 25 years. I have benefited from so much of what he has produced. I would rank this as one of his finest works. Filled with solid principles that are practical in daily life. The personal nature of this book made it even better. Well worth it.
"Gradualism towards a life that matters"
I am always a fan of John Maxwell to begin with, this is a must read or must listen to book no matter where you are in life...if you are curious about living a life that matters. I believe this is going to be one of those books I will read annually to see if I am being intentional about my life.
To help me refocus, redirect, and review the legacy I am leaving. This would make a gift, give away. Small group discussion. A must read!!!
"Take charge of your life now!"
The book focuses on the power of Intentional Living, the power of living your best story and the power of living a life of significance. This book is for you if you want to make a difference in this world. This book is for anyone who wants to change his or her life and make it a life of Significance.
The following lines from the book stuck with me: 'You have it within your power to make your life a great story, one of significance. Every person can. ' And John in this book shows you how.
I loved the way John brings out the different nuances of Intentionality, connects intentionality to your 'Why', your purpose, your actions, your personal growth, your success and ultimately your 'life of Significance'.
The book gives you a new perspective on the word success. You will, like me, start thinking more about Significance rather than success.In case you are feeling intimidated with the word significance ' let me share what John says about this: 'Action is what converts human dreams into significance.'
"Great knowledge imparted by a great author"
I bought this book and it sat in my library for a while. Then when the time was right I began to read it. Right out of the gate I learned something and applied it which shifted my life! I have continued to apply what is contained within this book as I read it which caused me to stop be grumpy like all those around me and I changed to become more positive. I've gotten more productive at work and home which I'm enjoying. In fact projects are being cut in half allowing me to do more of the stuff I want to do. I'm grateful for this book and will pass it on to many people. The Universe put this in my path exactly when I needed it.
"Exactly what I needed!"
His personal stories of try, fail, and adjust will save me years of working with the wrong people.
John Maxwell provides an easily comprehendible way to change how one can choose to live intentionally. I will naturally listen to it repeatedly for the information to soak in, however he has a soothing delivery that lends to wanting to listen again. I believe that anyone who feels unsatisfied with their current situation would benefit from listening. It may just bring the shift in your life you've been searching for but couldn't get out of your own way to see it.
"A must read"
If you dream of living a life that matters and intentionally make a difference, this is where to start.
"Some Good Information"
There were some good pieces on positive intent and putting yourself in the other person's shoes. However, overall I thought the book/performance was very slow paced. I found myself thinking of other topics, instead of what was being shared.
