Surprisingly, Maxwell (The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership) views tension as a positive force in one's life, the difference between those who settle for the status quo and those who experience growth and thrive. Growth, Maxwell asserts, is key to achieving success, and here, he provides a realistic roadmap for getting there. In addition to professional development, his wisdom extends into the personal realm, including discussions regarding improving relationships and obtaining wisdom. His laws range from the most basic (having self-awareness) to the more challenging (being consistent in how you pursue goals). By exploring curiosity and how to cultivate it, from believing and adopting a "beginner's mindset" to his suggestion to "partake in the fruit of failure" and "getting over yourself," Maxwell offers invaluable advice. Each chapter closes with helpful tips on how to incorporate these ideas into your life. Maxwell's advice is relevant to even the most successful among us, and his fans will likely delight in this inspiring new book.
