The Difference Maker: Making Your Attitude Your Greatest Asset by John C. Maxwell

What can make the difference in your life today? How can two people with the same skills and abilities, in the same situation, end up with two totally different outcomes? Leadership expert John C. Maxwell says the difference maker is attitude. For those who have ever wondered what may be separating them from achieving the kind of personal and professional success they’ve always dreamt of, Dr. Maxwell has some words of insight: “Your attitude colors every aspect of your life. It is like the mind’s paintbrush.”

In The Difference Maker, Maxwell shatters common myths about attitude—what it can do for you and what it can’t. Showing you how to overcome the five biggest attitude obstacles, Dr. Maxwell teaches the skills you need to make attitude your biggest asset. Most importantly, you’ll learn not only how to develop an attitude that will have a tremendous impact on career, family, and daily living, but also how to maintain that attitude for the rest of your life.

Hard to fault any John Maxwell book and The Difference Maker is no different in that regard. The "difference maker" is your attitude. Maxwell developes the importance of attitude in achieving what you want in life and how most people ignore the importance of working on your attitude every day. Maxwell identifies the five obstacles to having a good attitude and what you can do to create a plan of action to work on improving your attitude even in the face of personal adversities. This book is a definite keeper worthy of reading more than once and definitely worthy of giving as a gift.

This book really helps you change the way you think in such a positive way along with doing a little bit of homework. I really recommend this book to anyone that needs some kind of change in their lives or just refresh who they are.

A very enlightening, insightful, and motivating book. John brings forth his knowledge and experiences in life in an indepth, authoritative manner. He actually answers the question, "Why do two people with the exact same background, experience, skills and abilities, given the same situation in life, one fails and the other is successful?" I've never had this question answered to my personal satisfaction until reading "The Difference Maker," Making Your Attitude Your Greatest Asset. This book is 178 pages encompassed in 10 well written and organized chapters with excellent continuity of thought. I found this book well worth the investment of money and time with a high value return of understanding, application, and appreciation for having a positive attitude. I recommend this book to everybody. I leave you with this quote from the book, "'s easier to maintain a right attitude than it is to regain it!" ~ John C. Maxwell Craig Mattice

This book can absolutely change your life. If you're depressed, frustrated with school or work, stressed out or even if things are going great, this book is a beacon of light. Everyone can benefit from this book. I highly recommend it.

The great attitude platitude is that once you adjust the way you look at things, you¿re on your way to success and riches. Motivational writer John C. Maxwell agrees that attitude is an essential component of success, but he says that by itself it won¿t help you reach your goals. You also need skills, talent and experience. However, Maxwell believes that all things being equal, your attitude can make the difference between achieving your objectives and falling short. While this short read provides a quick fix for maintaining a positive mindset, the material is more of a fast boost than a lasting bulwark. We recommend it to those who are looking for a positive shot in the arm.

Good and bad.... what is good? What is bad? In the war. Who is good? Who is bad? In everything. Who is good? Who is bad? It all seems simple. The good guys do the right thing. But is it the right thing to everyone? Are they actually the bad guy? And the bad guy, what if he is good? I don't see any difference between good and bad. They are practically the same thing. Think about it.......... <p> <p> <p> <p> <p> <p> <p> <p> Confusing thing for today! I like cheese, do you? No i dont like onions! Yuck! I will, thank you. Now go away. Hey get back here!
