John C Maxwell

From Life Experience: Be Yourself But Listen For Change...

Several years ago I read two books which change my life from Dr. John C Maxwell. The first book was "Think for Change" it taught me, people who really want change don't give excuses for why they are still in the same place today. They don't use the word "try" and don't blame the past for the present moment! 

The second book which CHANGE MY LIFE FOREVER as a coach and consultant is "Relationship 101". It taught me you can not teach a person who does not listen. No matter how great a teacher you maybe!...here is small excerpt from book for some clarity...

Guru Speaks: “Paradoxical Commandments of Leadership.”

“Paradoxical Commandments of Leadership.” Is from Relationship 101 from John C Maxwell an mentor and also my favorite author. The following words are guidelines in which I stand by and accredit an lot of my success too... Please read, listen and understand!
 
People are illogical, unreasonable, and self-centered—love them anyway.

If you do good, people will accuse you of selfish ulterior motives—do good anyway.

If you’re successful, you’ll win false friends and true enemies—succeed anyway.

The good you do today will perhaps be forgotten tomorrow—do good anyway.

Honesty and frankness make you vulnerable—be honest and frank anyway.

The biggest man with the biggest ideas can be shot down by the smallest man with the smallest mind—think big anyway.

People favor underdogs but follow only hot dogs— fight for a few underdogs anyway.

What you spend years building may be destroyed overnight—build anyway.

People really need help but may attack you if you help them—help them anyway.

Give the world the best that you have and you will get kicked in the teeth—give the world the best that you have anyway.

If better is possible, then good is not enough.”
