Your Road Map To Success- John C. Maxwell

JOHN C. MAXWELL is an internationally recognized leadership expert speaker, and author who has sold over 12 million books. His organizations have trained more than one million leaders worldwide. He is also the founder of Injoy Stewardship Services and EQUIP. 


So, my dad bought I book written by him (Your road Map to success) and out of curiosity, I decided to try and read it. I stumbled upon this short paragraph on page thirty-two and found out that this description suits me A HUNDRED PERCENT. This is definitely one of the attitudes I own and find it hard to ever change!

Here it goes:

2. Get rid of your pride
People full of themselves usually don't have much room left over for a life-changing dream. That's why it's so important to get rid of your pride; it can keep you from trying new things or asking questions because you are afraid of looking stupid. It makes you want to stay in your comfort zone instead of striving for the end zone. Pride puts your forces on appearance instead of potential. And it prevents you from taking risks- something you must do to discover your dream. If you are a prideful person, it's time to let go of your pride and grab hold of your dream. 
Now that is one of the attitude or personality I had since quite a few years ago. On my opinion, it's no wrong to have pride on your own but it is wrong to have some type of pride that gives you a sense of...staying to your comfort zone all your life and shying away from curiosity in front of everyone else. What John Maxwell had stated in the paragraph there is definitely true!
