My Read of the Month:
Title: Put Your Dream to the Test: 10 Questions that Will Help You See It and Seize It
Author: John C. Maxwell
Genre: Leadership/Personal development
Believe it or not, this is my first Maxwell’s book that I’ve read. And through reading this useful book, I found a role model in Maxwell.
I like that I had started this book at the beginning of 2010 as it had helped in clarifying my vision which in turn helped as I penned my goals for this year.
Maxwell does an exceptional job in no only shares principles and tips towards achieving our dreams, but he also shares his life experiences. That is invaluable.
What makes this book a must-read is that it inspires readers to evaluate their lives and to re-discover that dream that might be tucked away in some corner. The 10 steps or questions really do help as I was able to redefine my personal dream/vision.
I particularly enjoyed the anecdotes, quotes and life lessons which he drew and dissected from the success stories of famous people both living and dead. This book is close to flawless and truly an enjoyable read!
In closing, I leave you with this quote from the author: “It is your responsibility to become everything that you are, not only for your benefit but also for everyone else’s”.
Who should read it: For those who are in pursuit or in discovery of their vision/dream in life.
