How High will you Climb? written by John C.Maxwell (Review)
I like his kids books best.
“Our attitudes are formed by our experiences and how we choose to react to them. Therefore as long as we live, we are forming, changing or reinforcing attitudes. … our attitude doesn’t remain stagnant” – KL 546 & 571.
Some of the topics covered include:
1. 3 healthy attitudes Jesus had.
2. 7 statements about attitude.
3. 4 thing to remember when things get tough.
4. 3 storms that can destroy a good attitude.
5. Suggestions for preventing criticism from dragging you down.
6. 8 types of choices we make that can determine our attitudes.
7. 4 opportunities that can help you be successful.
8. Christians should not view life as negative.
9. We must decide to take a risk and act on the opportunities we have.
10. Ways God supports and strengthens us when we seek to change our attitude.
“Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus, who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, but emptied himself, by taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men.” (Philippians 2:5–7, ESV)
This book focuses less on leadership and more on personal attitude. I was pleased by the plentiful inclusion of Biblical references alongside wisdom quotes from other great leaders.Finally, Maxwell includes study guides for each chapter, as well as "Attitude Applications" throughout each chapter.
If you like Maxwell stuff and haven't read The Winning Attitude, you'll like this read.It is a short and easy to digest volume full of good ideas.
I received this book free from the publisher through the BookSneeze®.com book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review
