Beyond Talent by John C. Maxwell Book Reveiw

Book Description
New York Times best-selling author John C. Maxwell shows that talent is just the starting point for a successful impact in any organization. It's what takes you beyond your talent that matters.
People everywhere are proving him right. Read the headlines, watch the highlights, or just step out your front door: Some talented people reach their full potential, while others self-destruct or remain trapped in mediocrity. What makes the difference? Maxwell, the go-to guru for business professionals across the globe, insists that the choices people make--not merely the skills they inherit--propel them to greatness. Among other truths, successful people know that:
  • Belief lifts your talent.
  • Initiative activates your talent.
  • Focus directs your talent.
  • Preparation positions your talent.
  • Practice sharpens your talent.
  • Perseverance sustains your talent.
  • Character protects your talent. . . . and more!
It's what you add to your talent that makes the greatest difference. With authentic examples and time-tested wisdom, Maxwell shares thirteen attributes you need to maximize your potential and live the life of your dreams.
You can have talent alone and fall short of your potential. Or you can go beyond talent and really stand out.
My Thoughts
I am slowly getting my collection of John C. Maxwell up to speed.  His latest book Beyond Talent shows “not all successful people are successful, because of raw talent alone.”   This book is full of great stories and examples that include quotes  from athletes, artists, coaches, corporate executives and historical leaders.

I really enjoyed the chapter exercises and questions at the end of each chapter. They help to steer you in the right direction to determine what needs to be done to become successful, and then how to apply what you just read into your own life.

I recommend this book to anyone who wants to take their talent to the next level or to anyone who needs to tweak what they already have.
