Reviews - What do customers think about Your Road Map For Success?
Follow the Roadmap and you are bound to succeed Aug 8, 2005
The Roadmap to Success is by far the best motivational book I have ever read. It was the first book that I have read by Maxwell, and since then I have read four others. He teaches us a new way to think about success. Clearly stated success is: knowing your purpose, growing to reach your potential, and sowing seeds to help others. It is amazing how much better you perform and how much more you enjoy life when you view success through this framework. If you have been successful so far in your life, this book will help reinforce any doubts you have about your choices and reaffirm the actions you have taken. If you are committed to growth and development then this book is a great start to helping you put aside your fears to get the most out of your life. If you are closed minded, resistant to change and generally a pessimistic person this book is not for you. While those people that continue to make excuses for their failures or the way their life turned out will never succeed, those who have the right mindset and follow Maxwell's advise will surely go far in life and reap the beiefits and joys of success.
John finishes his book with a ? "What did you like best?" May 6, 2005
The following is what I liked best:
The section on Goals They MUST be activities that are: written, personal, specific, achievable, measurable, and time sensitive.
The Quotes: "You can not make any progress when you are facing the wrong way." & the another one by Charles 'Tremendous' Jones who said "The only difference between the person you are today and who you will be in 5 years come from the books you read and the people you associate with."
The Benchmarking idea: To attain success you should ONLY pick 3 to 5 areas to work on & grow in at one time.
The section on Choices: In order to make progress it will involve 3 choices: to gain something, to lose something, or to trade something and when you choose: pick the former rather than latter: Achievement over affirmation Excellence over acceptability Personal growth over pleasure Future potential over personal gain Narrow focus over scattered interests Significance over security
And finally the Laws on Developing others: Take someone with you: "There is no success without a successor"

Flesh on the Bones Jun 26, 2004
I am definitely a John Maxwell fan. This man is truly gifted and knows how to communicate so all can understand and benefit.This book was great but even better if read as a sequel. Don't get me wrong this is a stand alone book by itself but I am glad that I first read The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership. The 21 Laws is much more dry and technical while this book is personal in its application. You will better understand the process by first knowing the driving principles.There are several excellent lists that are explained in detail but my favorite is entitled, "How to Take Others for a (Life Changing) Ride. #2 states to , "Limit Who You Take Along". This one explanation alone is worth the book. It should prevent burn out and minimize disappointments.Page 177 has a chart on communication styles and the results. He applies this not only to the business world but to the family unit as well.I particulary like the chapter, What Should I Pack in My Suitcase. This will help me redeem my "downtime" as I travel. This guy is a genius.
Best book I ever read Dec 25, 2003
We all know this: the choice of our "favorite" book is a difficult one. Perhaps the "most influencial" one is easier, at least in my case it proved to be so. This book has shaped my way of thinking like no one, perhaps just "The power of positive thinking in business" by Scott Ventrella came close to it, but one step below. As an IT consultant I use to read mostly technical books, which of course become outdated pretty soon and their value diminishes with time without discussion. The value that "Your road map to success" provides is enormous because has not timeframe, I can't see it outdated anytime and provides guidance which can be life-long followed and reintepreted. I am finding myself to recommend this book to just aybody I care for. Chances are you'll do the same after you read it. Absolutely recommended.
Great For any Age Sep 11, 2003
I did this book for my college age sunday school and it was great. Very practical information and i loved the quotes. It was written in an easy to read format and easy to do lessons on. I know a lot of what he says is common sense knowledge but sometimes we forget how important stuff like attitude is. He reminds us with example and practical principals. Maxwell is great i did his leadership series at work and he really has a great insight into success.
