Recommendation

Motivational author John Maxwell’s warm, insightful book highlights the need for people to focus on something they unknowingly ignore: their attitude. All too often, people examine how they should act without examining their underlying point of view – the attitude that determines their relationship to life. Maxwell combines spiritual inspiration drawn from the Bible and Christianity with information on how to adjust your attitude. Though many of Maxwell’s easy-to-read motivational books are nonsectarian, he is a pastor and his Christian beliefs dominate here. getAbstract recommends his accessible ideas to anyone seeking a religious path to a boost in attitude.

In this summary, you will learn

  • How your attitude makes the difference between success and failure,
  • What factors shape your attitude, and
  • How spirituality can provide the ultimate source of comfort and security.
