The professional sports world is filled with athletes who have extraordinary talent and yet end up with mediocre careers. Of course, every field has people who have failed to achieve their individual talent potential. Why? Talent alone is not remarkable. In fact, it is commonplace.

Maxwell says you must add effort to talent to make it matter. He describes 13 sterling attributes people should strive to build within themselves to maximize their talents. getAbstract recommends his message to those who coach, mentor or encourage others. In any business or activity, Maxwell contends, talent “is only a starting point.” How you develop your talent is what counts, and this book will show you how.
In this summary, you will learn
- Why talent is meaningless without effort;
- What “talent-plus” self-development entails; and
- How to become a talent-plus person by building 13 important character traits.
