Beyond Talent

In another profound book by John C. Maxwell, the reader comes to grips with the reality that talent alone does not make a success story.  Talent must be paired with direction, determination,  and diligence to really reach one’s potential.  Although everyone has equal value, not everyone has equal giftedness, and in his book, John Maxwell points out the ways that different people became success stories by tapping into their own potential.  They found their strengths and built their talent around that.  Maxwell encourages the reader to develop the talent you have rather than the talent you  want. 

Each of the thirteen chapters is carefully crafted with stories of individuals who realized their strengths and developed them to become successful people, whether it be success in the workplace or success in life.  The book is laid out as somewhat of a student book that allows you to reflect on the subject matter of the chapter, the principles taught, and gives the reader an opportunity to answer questions about his or her personal work ethics. 

For anyone who desires to become greater in whatever aspect of life they desire to excel, this book is a great choice.  Life consists of the choices that we make, and this book can serve as a guide to make right choices in developing your strengths rather than focusing on your weaknesses.
