No Limits: Blow the CAP Off Your Capacity by John C. Maxwell

No Limits: Blow the CAP Off Your Capacity by John C. Maxwell

#1 New York Times bestselling author John C. Maxwell's latest book will enhance the lives of leaders, professionals, and anyone who wants to achieve success and personal growth. We often treat the word capacity as if it were a natural law of limitation. Unfortunately, most of us are much more comfortable defining what we perceive as off limits rather than what's really possible. Could it be that many of us have failed to expand our potential because we have allowed what we perceive as capacity to define us? What if our limits are not really our limits? In his newest book, John Maxwell identifies 17 core capacities. Some of these are abilities we all already possess, such as energy, creativity and leadership. Others are aspects of our lives controlled by our choices, like our attitudes, character, and intentionality. Maxwell examines each of these capacities, and provides clear and actionable advice on how you can increase your potential in each. He will guide you on how to identifygrow, and apply your critical capacities. Once you've blown the "cap" off your capacities, you'll find yourself more successful--and fulfilled--in your daily life.

My Thoughts:

Have you ever wanted to become more successful or a better person? Are you stuck, looking for advice or just simply feel like you've reached your limits as a person and don't know any other way, well than I recommend you pick up this book "No Limits" by John Maxwell. He helps the reader begin to recognize areas in our lives where we cannot change the history, such as our family, birthplace or relatives, but we can change what we create. We are able to create our friends, homes, neighborhoods, jobs, etc. We can can create a better life and better self. 

What I love about this book is the ability to reflect at the end of each chapter with questions, which is perfect as you begin to look at the caps in your life. Maxwell also talks about our ability to possess energy, emotional, people, creative, production, leadership and thinking capacity, which all of these things help us with the choices in our life, which ultimately maximizes or minimizes our capacity, depending on what we choose. This book will help you choose whether you want to live in the moment or whether you want to think about the future.

Maxwell challenges the reader about their thinking and to take responsibility for their lives by respecting oneself. Personal growth must be important, especially if you want to grow and live a better life. Age should be no limit to the life and capacity that is within each one us. However, if you want to grow, you will be challenge and you will step out of your comfort zone and Maxwell makes no qualms about that. 

Overall, I really enjoyed this book and the ability learn about the areas in my life where I could expand my capacity. I give this book 5/5 stars. Thank you to the Hachette group a division of Faith Words for sending me a review copy. A positive review was not required.
