Reviews - What do customers think about The Winning Attitude Your Key To Personal Success?
Attitude is Everything! Feb 15, 2007
Attitude is a funny thing. It plays a significant role in our daily successes and/or failures, whether people like us or not and our ability to lead. But, as John Maxwell points out in The Winning Attitude, we have complete control over our attitude in any given situation.
Winning Attitude explains how much our attitude effects our lives and what we can do to choose to have a positive attitude daily. Maxwell offers example after example of leaders throughout history who's attitude brought them to success even when those around them said it could not be done... even after they had failed time and time again.
Winning Attitude is one of Maxwell's earlier leadership books and was written from a decidedly Christian/Biblical perspective. Even if you have no interest in Maxwell's religious perspective the points he outlines are solid principles that every business person should take note of.
The book covers four main points:
I. The Consideration of Your Attitude II. The Construction of Your Attitude III. The Crashing of Your Attitude IV. The Changing of Your Attitude
Each section paves the way for the next as Maxwell outlines how our attitude can make or break us in our professional and personal lives. This book is about creating a mentality for success. Every person's success begins and ends with our attitude.
This is a great... Nov 9, 2006
book! This can help straighten out your attitude, especially if you are always negative. If you already have a positive attitude, it's still great! :)
Excellent Resource for an Attitude Adjustment May 2, 2005
Maxwell has written an excellent book encouraging readers to change their attitudes so they may experience more personal success. While the book is admittingly from an evangelical Christian perspective, anyone can benefit from the material.
Among the points covered include:
1. 7 aspects fo attitudes and how they can affect your life. 2. God thinks more of us than we do ourselves. 3. Do not allow your attitude or others to put you in a box and limit your potential. 4. 4 rules to remember when you have attitude problems. 5. Failures can be the road to our success - it is impossible to succeed without failure. 6. 4 outward causes of attitude problems. 7. 8 choices we can make to improve our attitude. 8. 5 types of opportunities we have to change our attitude. 9. 3 strengths we have for change. 10. 5 things to learn from prayer in Psalm 25:1-10.
Earlier reviewers are put off by Maxwell's "preaching". What do you expect? He was a preacher when he wrote the book!!! It still amazes me that people are still so hypersensitive to whenever Christianity and the Bible are mentioned in a positive light in a book. Perhaps those same reviewers are the very ones who need an attitude adjustment the most!!!
Read, enjoy, and be encouraged to know you have the Lord ready to help you when you need an attitude change.
attitude is leadership, leadership is influence Apr 18, 2005
Attitude creates the difference between mediocre performance and exceptional results. Its not good or bad circumstances, but how and how often we handle circumstances that will determine where we will be. I dont know how John Maxwell puts it all together but its amazing how this book is overflowing with the right information for those who want to learn, change, overcome and move ahead in whatever they are doing.

Nice mix for the open minded Jan 12, 2004
I'm a Christian. However, most books touching on Christianity really turn me off, mainly because some Christians come across as if their beliefs are the only right way to think. It's seems to me that Christianity is not the only game out there, and it certainly isn't the oldest. Isn't the goal to believe what Christ believed, and so act as He? Nuff said.
Maxwell's book is terrific. Many authors tell how to have a great attitude, but Maxwell explains that we need more than just directions... We need guidance, and at times, we need help. Maxwell reminds us that when we need help, there is a power greater than ourselves which can do for us what we can't do for ourselves. Yes, the book does contain Christian references. However, what is built upon that foundation is pure right thinking and common sense.
My greatest challenge has been my thinking, and Maxwell provides a solution.
