Prolific author, speaker and leadership coach John C. Maxwell is a worthy role model for “intentional living.” A former pastor of evangelical churches, he is also a successful entrepreneur and the founder of The John Maxwell Company, The John Maxwell Team and EQUIP. He’s written 74 leadership books, with more than 25 million copies sold worldwide. Although Maxwell is successful by almost any measure, here he focuses on how he’s been able to help others. And, he sets out to illuminate the measure of a truly significant life, lived with intention. This is one of Maxwell’s most personal works. He urges you to design your life proactively and not stumble through it by accident. How successful you become isn’t important, he says. Instead, what matters is how much value you add to other people’s lives. getAbstract recommends his inspiring message to leaders at any level, teachers, parents, students and anyone seeking insight about a better way to live.

1 year agoThank you so much for the free trail because I cannot afford any finance to get a book like this.
2 years agoWhere there is no vision the people perish, if you don't live an intentional life, then we are just floating through
3 years agoWell~~ shouldn't we all take some time to rethink about significance in our lives in the midst of a busy and competitive work place.
I have enjoyed the summary. Thank you.
