How High Will You Climb? (book review)

How High Will You Climb?John Maxwell’s books give me wings! They are always so encouraging, yet at the same time challenging me to go beyond my current setting. I recently read How High Will You Climb? (again). I put the “again” in parenthesis because this is an abridgment of The Winning Attitude, which I read over 10 years ago. But the message about the power of attitude was a welcome reminder.

What is an attitude?
It is the “advance man” of our true selves.
Its roots are in word but its fruit is outward.
It is our best friend and our worst enemy.
It is more honest and more consistent than our words.
It is an outward look based on past experiences.
It is a thing that draws people to us or repels them.
It is never content until it is expressed.
It is the librarian of our past.
It is the speaker of our present.
It is the prophet of our future. (from How High Will You Climb? page 14)

If your natural bent is a negative attitude, you need to read this book. If you natural bent is a positive attitude, you will find page after page of reinforcing ideas to take your attitude even higher, and help you lift others with you.

How High Will You Climb? (or The Winning Attitude) is a great read for everyone!
