How Successful People Think

John C. Maxwell

Overview

Sometimes we struggle with books using chains of logic like 'successful people do X -> do X and you will be successful too.' Most of the time, the habit or activity in question was only one small part of everything that person did. Sometimes, they're even habits they likely acquired to deal with their success after they had it, not before. The truth is you can find examples of successful people for every habit and its polar opposite.

So when John C. Maxwell asserts that "all successful people think alike", you may cringe but he does have a point when it comes to thinking at all. They do think differently to most folks who just live day to day, month to month, paycheck to paycheck.

While it outlines eleven specific kinds of thinking – big-picture, focused, creative, realistic, strategic, possibility, reflective, popular, shared, unselfish, and bottom-line – its main message is to look at thinking itself as an activity that can stand on its own.
