Here are some of my favorite John Maxwell quotes:

  • Nobody gets anywhere in life without the help of others.
  • If you want people to be impressed talk about your successes, if you want people to identify with you talk about your failures.
  • A procrastinator puts off until tomorrow the things he has already put off until today.
  • Your attitude is either your best friend or your worst enemy, your greatest asset or your greatest liability.
  • Leadership by definition cannot be a one man show.
  • You will acquire the vices & virtues of your closest associates. The fragrance of their lives will pervade your life.
  • In the end, people are persuaded not by what we say, but by what they understand.
  • Connecting is never about me. It’s about the person with whom I am communicating.
  • A man must be big enough to admit his mistakes, smart enough to profit from them, and strong enough to correct them.
  • The pessimist complains about the wind. The optimist expects it to change. The leader adjusts the sails.
  • A leader is one who knows the way, goes the way, and shows the way.
  • People don’t care how much you know, until they know how much you care.
