Well-regarded pastor and popular speaker John C. Maxwell shares a wealth of knowledge and experience in leadership and management in many of his books. But this time he turns toward personal development and offers 15 principles that can help you grow as a person so you can attain your full potential. Maxwell explains that change fuels “intentional personal growth,” but to achieve positive change, you must do one thing differently every day. “If you do the things you need to do when you need to do them, then someday you can do the things you want to do when you want to do them.” While probably too sweet for anyone with a drop of cynicism, Maxwell’s writing overflows with aphorisms and quotable gems. Give him an ear, and he may well help you change in a more positive direction. getAbstract finds that his substantive thoughts on personal growth, ethics, success, leadership and teamwork can provide both support and inspiration.

In this summary, you will learn

  • How “intentional personal growth” enables you to attain your full potential and
  • How to use 15 principles of intentional personal growth.
