Becoming a Person of Influence by John Maxwell
Life is a matter of choices, and every choice you make makes you. What will you do for your career? Who will you marry? Where will you live? How much education will you get? What will you do with today? But one of the most important choices you will make is who will you become! Life is not merely a matter of holding and playing a good hand as you would hope to do in a card game. What you start with isn’t up to you. Talent is God-given. Life is playing the hand you have been dealt well. That is determined by your choices. TALENT + RIGHT CHOICES = A TALENTPLUS PERSON. The talent-plus people are the ones who maximize their talent, reach their potential, and fulfill their destiny.
