You have talent? So what?

Posted by Emma on November 3, 2011 at 10:56 am | Filed under:Books

Everyone has talent, at least we like to think so. But if everyone has talent then why do only a few people really make it? In his book Beyond Talent, John C. Maxwell presents thirteen basic principles that can help anyone take their talent and do something with it.

These principles are easy, anyone can live by them. They are also the key to developing your talent and going somewhere with it.

I have always liked to think that I had talent, but never seemed to be exceptional at anything. In Beyond Talent John Maxwell teaches that yes everyone does have talent, only a few may be exceptional, but you have talent. He tells us how you can go far with your talent, even if you are not exceptional. This book opened up my eyes to ways that I could make my talent count for something. John Maxwell showed me that it is better to become, as he puts it, a talent-plus person with average talent, than to be exceptionally talented but not have the character it takes to really succeed.

I would recommend this book to anyone who really wants to do something worthwhile in their lives. Internalizing these concepts and making them part of your life will help you go far. You have the talent. John C. Maxwell can teach you how to make that talent count.
