Train on Thursday: John C. Maxwell, El Mapa para Alcanzar el Éxito

Train on thursday buttonThe guy hardly looked up from his book when the lady almost fell on his lap. It was spine bend and dog eared and it had a foreign title. So I had to ask what he was reading and found out it was a book by John C. Maxwell. He was clearly very engaged in what he was reading and turned back to his book immediately.

Your Road Map for Success: You Can Get There from Here by John C. Maxwell is what they call a self help book.
Your Road Map for Success John C. Maxwell coverDefining success is a difficult task. Most people equate it with wealth, power, and happiness. However, true success is not a thing you acquire or achieve. Rather, it is a journey you take your whole life long.
In a refreshingly straightforward style, John Maxwell shares unique insights into what it means to be successful. And he reveals a definition that puts genuine success within your reach yet motivates you to keep striving for your dreams.
I want to help you discover your personal road map for success, teach you what it means to be on the success journey, answer many of your questions, and equip you with what you'll need to change yourself and keep growing. - John C. Maxwell

This would not be a book for me. I am more a person of doing things and taking steps than first reading about it and trying to grow that way. I once tried to stop smoking with a book like this and it totally failed cause I lost all interest due to the repetitive way of writing which is necessary in these books as it is the way to get it into the human brain. ( I eventually stopped with acupuncture).
