Your Roadmap to Success

My sister Angeline finished this book in a very short time and ask me for more books. I told her "1 step at a time, you are not the lengchai aka rocketman...:p"...looks like she really benefited from the book!! Oh Yes!!

So I thought it's good to share with you guys one of the best book by John Maxwell (an America's expert on leadership, founder of the INJOY Group, an organization dedicated to helping people maximize their personal and leadership potential.) who have written twenty-five books, including "The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership", "Failing Forward", "Developing the Leader Within You", and The "21 Indispensable Qualities of a Leader".

May be this book can help you To Get There from Here, especially my another sister who seems to be very troubled by many things - their performance, by many questions thrown at her, by many unsuccessful events/trips - and as a result of that have to eat-2-live & growing very healthily lately... hehe!

ok, okay, lets get back to our review...:p

Defining success is a difficult task. Most people equate it with wealth, power, and happiness. However, true success is not a thing you acquire or achieve. Rather, it is a journey you take your whole life long.

In a refreshingly straightforward style, John Maxwell shares unique insights into what it means to be successful. And he reveals a definition that puts genuine success within your reach yet motivates you to keep striving for your dreams.

He shows that the keys to success are:

  1. Knowing Your Purpose In Life
  2. Growing To Your Maximum Potential
  3. Sowing Seeds That Benefit Other
Success is not limited to those with financial resources or special talents. It is available to anyone willing to learn a few practical principles and then follow through with hem day to day. In Your Road Map for Success, the author guides your every step until you are equipped with your own road map to take you on the rest of the trip.

As the author put it in his foreword: "I want to help you discover your personal road map for success, teach you what it means to be on the success journey, answer many of your questions, and equip you with what you'll need to change yourself and keep growing."

So, to many of you "young dreamers" who aspire to succeed in life, go and grab one at about RM23++ at MPH, NOW!
