In order to grow within you have to read books with nuggets; bits of information that you can carry with you forever. In his latest book, How High Will You Climb?: Determine Your Success by Cultivating the Right Attitude by John C. Maxwell has once again provided motivating words of wisdom in which the reader can take with him wherever he chooses to go.
I am a John Maxwell fan and have purchased many of his books. Though the basis of all of his books are pretty much the same, developing the leader in you, the approach varies. In How High Will You Climb? The reader is encouraged to examine his or her attitude.
Part of Mr. Maxwell’s success has to do with his ability to incorporate biblical principals with the realities of life. You will not appreciate this book if you do not understand the need to incorporate God’s word in your daily activities. Bible passages are woven throughout the entire book.
How High Will You Climb? serves as a life coach thus it reads like a one on one motivational conversation. The antidotes told lead to life observations which lead to suggested life applications all of which should force the reader to determine what his or her goals are.
As with any self-help, personal motivational, or leadership book, upon reading this book the individual should have a better understanding of how to succeed. I like books that focus on personal responsibility which is why I can recommend How High Will You Climb? I believe even non-Christians will be able to glean life truths from this book.
