Summary

Are you tired of not reaching your full potential? Do you feel you have the talent to succeed but are unappreciated and trapped? 

Based on his New York Times best-selling book Beyond Talent, John Maxwell asks if you are tired of not reaching your full potential and feel you have the talent to succeed but are unappreciated and trapped. If this describes you, in Success Is a Choice, you can learn the right choices that lead to success from John Maxwell, the go-to guru for business professionals across the globe. Take the next steps that successful people chose, including:

  • Believing in themselves
  • Firing up their passion
  • Initiating action
  • Focusing their energy
  • Cultivating good relationships
  • Embracing practice

The choices you make in addition to your talent make the greatest difference. With authentic examples and time-tested wisdom, Maxwell shares 14 choices you need to make to live the life of your dreams. It’s time to go beyond talent by making right choices that will help you really stand out.

This book is the blueprint for success 101

I find it simple to understand with lots of valuable lessons about what's the meaning of success. A big thank you to the author, John Maxwell, for a brilliant job. I've read some of his other books too.

Choosing correctly is a success

Again JM displayed his usual mastery of the science of defeating the persimist within ourselves. Success is a choice has taught me one lesson as a leader, 'be open to every member of my team and accept that learning together is growing together and succeeding together'.

In need of serious updating

This book has a well written message that is lost by the glamorization of now infamous people. Using the likes of Rudy Giuliani and Christopher Columbus as heros of success discredited the author and almost made me stop reading. in today's time, this is like praising Hitler. I will not recommend this out of touch book without a much needed update.

Dated List of Quotes

Reading this book was like reading somebody’s stream of consciousness in between a bunch of quotes. Some of the quotes were interesting, but this author did very little to add anything to the stream of quotes from other people that are in this book other than his own self interest in his own writing and his own past. I would never hire this person as a consultant or as a leadership coach.

Covers more topics than I expected

A lot of books like this cover similar topics so they end up reinforcing important concepts that many authors write about. However, this book is different in that other important issues are addressed and I like tge author’s writing style.
