The Power of Significance by John C. Maxwell

The Power of Significance

John C. Maxwell, #1 New York Times bestselling author, shows you how to achieve a life of purpose and significance in this compact new book derived from his previous title, Intentional Living.
We all have a longing to be significant, to make a contribution, to be a part of something noble and purposeful. But know this: you don't have to be a certain age, have a lot of money, or be powerful or famous to make a real difference. You can be significant starting today--if you know your purpose.

In THE POWER OF SIGNIFICANCE, you will find the pathway to a life that matters. Drawing on over 50 years of experience helping people around the world, John Maxwell gives practical guidance and motivation to get you started on your unique personal path to significance. Learn how to find your why, start small but believe big, and live every day as if it matters--because it does!

My Thoughts:
Maxwell once again shows that the size of the book doesn't matter, but the content. In less than 120 pages, he breaks down the power and purpose of our lives into being something significant. We don't have to have obtain a huge name for ourselves or be of a certain age with wealth, we just have to know our purpose. Many people wander through life not knowing the purpose. When you don't know your purpose it is easy to get lost, it easy to get stuck. I have had several people say to me" I don't know what my purpose is?" Think about the things that you enjoy and how they influence people, the world at large. Why would you want to do anything different? Why would you want to spend your day at the office sitting at a desk if you enjoy decorating people's houses? Often we look for our purpose in the wrong spot and then we cannot find our significance in the world around us. I love how Maxwell talks about starting small. I am learning that the small steps continue to make the most big changes. One ways he talks about it is to watch your words. Does anyone else struggle with that? Shut your mouth! Amen? This little book is jam packed with nuggets of truth that I know you will love and enjoy. Thank you to the publishers for providing me a copy for review purposes only. I give this book 5/5 stars. A favorable review was not required.
