Now, Who is John Maxwell?
John Maxwell was born in Garden City, Michigan in 1947. An evangelical Christian, he followed his father into the ministry. He completed a Bachelor’s degree at Ohio Christian University in 1969, a Master of Divinity degree at Azusa Pacific University, and a Doctor of Ministry degree at Fuller Theological Seminary.

Maxwell is a leadership expert, speaker, and author. He is the founder of several organizations including INJOY, MAXIMUM IMPACT and EQUIP.
EQUIP is an international leadership development organization, working to help leaders around the globe develop and maximize their leadership potentials. Three of his books, The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership, Developing the Leader Within You, and The 21 Indispensable Qualities of a Leader, have each sold over a million copies.
Now let me share some Insights from this Book with you:
This book was published in 2002. It is a 244 pages book divided into 10 chapters. These 10 chapters are organized into three parts which formed the fulcrum of the book. In this book, John Maxwell teaches practical principles that will propel you to plan your own success journey. From this book, you will learn how to pack for your success trip, overcome detours, include your family in the journey, and build professional relationships along the way. This book provides a comprehensive and valuable tool to help you travel the road you were created to take, keep moving forward, live out your dreams, and finish strong.
One key factor that set this book apart as an outstanding material lies in the comprehensive definition Maxwell gives to success. While he debunked the wrong pictures people hold of success, he defined success as follows and I quote: “Knowing your purpose in life, growing to reach your maximum potential and sowing seeds that benefit others”, end of quote. You will find this on page 11 of the book.
These three core values of purpose, potential, and the act of sowing good seed to humanity are the major themes the rest of the book focuses on. It is certain that anyone who dares to read this book is definitely turning a corner in his life, a turning that will unfold for him a road map for success. It will surely be the turning that will take such a one from discouragement and near defeat to optimism and unexpected victories, from one level of success to another, to even higher levels of accomplishment than he/she ever dreamed of before.
I invite you to begin an adventure in the journey of success today by laying hold on this book and start reading it.
