Wisdom from John C. Maxwell

I make no secret of the fact that John C. Maxwell is my favorite author on the topics of leadership, relationships, attitude, and equipping. I pretty much have an entire shelf devoted to his works. Continuing my “wisdom” series, here is some wisdom from John C. Maxwell, taking from his book, Winning with People:

  • My success can be achieved only with others.
  • My lessons can be learned only through others.
  • My weaknesses can be strengthened only by others.
  • My servant-hood can be tested only under others’ leadership.
  • My influence can be compounded only through others.
  • My leadership can be focused only on others.
  • My best can be given only to others.
  • My legacy can be left only for others.
  • So I should commit myself to and celebrate with others!
(pg. 213)
