15 Quotes From “The 15 Invaluable Laws of Growth” Book
by Anila Bashllari
My clients know who John Maxwell is, especially those who have attended the “Growth is a Marathon, not a Sprint” training. They are now familiarized with John’s philosophy on leadership, personal development and effective communication.
Together, we held the first training on personal growth in May of 2016, a group of 12 people who were eager to learn more about the growing techniques that Maxwell suggests in his book “The 15 Invaluable Laws of Growth”. For those that could not attend the training, I have compiled a list of 15 quotes from the John’s book about personal growth, one unique quote per chapter.
Chapter I: Outside of my faith, the decision to grow has impacted my life more than any other
Chapter II: You must know who you are to grow to your potential. But you have to grow in order to know who you are
Chapter III: If you put a small value on yourself, rest assured the world will not raise the price
Chapter IV: There are things in life you have to work for and there are things you have to wait for
Chapter V: You will never change your life until you change something you do daily
Chapter VI: If you are always at the head of the class, you are in the wrong class
Chapter VII: The secret of your success is found in your daily routine
Chapter VIII: Facing difficulties is inevitable. Learning from them is optional
Chapter IX: If you take control of your behavior, your emotions will fall into place
Chapter X: If you won’t be better tomorrow than you were today, then what do you need tomorrow for?
Chapter XI: While we don’t always get what we want, we always get what we choose
Chapter XII: Experience is not the best teacher, evaluated experience is
Chapter XIII: My greatest leadership challenge is leading me
Chapter XIV: Most experts believe people typically use only 10% of their true potential
Chapter XV: The measure of success is not the number of people who serve you, but the number of people you serve
