I Finished Reading a Book! Be All You Can Be – John C Maxwell

Flying to Bangkok earlier this month, finally I completed read this book by John C Maxwell. Thanks to my smartphone’s stupid battery that died before my flight, so that I could finish this book! 😀

Why at first I bought this book. Caught by its title, cause those days I felt lack of motivation while part of me still dreaming something big. So the title told me to Be All I Can Be!

These were some of great quotes that I noted and highlighted for myself, may also could be somehow good for you? 🙂

  • “Why don’t we always abide in Him? Pure lack of obedience. We begin to think that we can do it on our own, we begin to have an unhealthy self-confidence instead of a Christ-confidence. “

  • “What is success? It is the privilege of contributing to the betterment of others.”

  • “God is interested in your development, more than he is in your mistakes.”

  • “The value of a vision is that it encourages you to give up at any moment all that you are in order to receive all that you can become.”

  • “Once you’ve had a glimpse of what God can make of you, you’ll never be satisfied with what you are now.”

  • “A purpose will cause you to: pray, unite, risk, plan, observe, sacrifice, expect, more than ordinary people.”

  • “In matters of principle, stand like a rock. In matters of taste, swim with the current. Learn to be flexible in your life. The greater the man, the more flexible he is.”

  • “Great leaders learn how to say, “I am sorry” more quickly than followers.”

  • “A great man shows his greatness by the way he treats the little man.”

  • “Commitment starts with the little things in our lives. Don’t make a commitment today to win your world for Jesus. Make a commitment to win one person to Jesus.”

What do you think of those?
