The title of this book is excellent in describing who it's for. If you want to reach your full potential for God, then this book is for you. It's written in a style of a coach (Dr. Stanley) telling an athlete (the reader) how to win the game (a life serving God) with the game plan coming from the Bible. Some of the advice might sound a little extreme to some readers, but I'd agree that extreme is appropriate if you want to reach your full potential--just like a top athlete is willing to push the ...more

Do you ever look at your life and feel that there must be more to it? Do you ever wonder about God's plan for your life yet feel as if you're falling short? In this book, Charles Stanley hits on seven key points necessary for living your life in God's will and at your full potential.

From the very beginning of the book, I felt as if Dr. Stanley was speaking to me and that through him, God was answering many questions that I had been asking lately. God has so much in store for us, but so many of u
Charles Stanley has a lot of "how to" books and his approach is somewhat like a formula. Do the following and you will reach all your potential.

Reading,"How to Reach Your Full Potential for God",, I was impressed by the scriptural backing of the book.

Covering seven principles that often reflect the daily concerns that as Christians, people find themselves struggling or looking how to deal with, Dr. Charles Stanley, provides biblical backed solutions and examples from the Bible of how to seek God's Word, to reach,our individual potential, to serve and worship our Heavenly Father at our best.

What ,"How to Reach Your Full Potential for Go
Charles Stanley has always been one of the foremost Christian teachers and this book is no exception. He breaks down the steps in the simplest forms and uses stories to reinforce. I find that I'm most receptive to this type of "self help" books. I found this book easy to read and follow. It took me a LONG time to read this because I would read a chapter, let it sink in, read it again while changing my thoughts and actions to reflect the teaching. If you are looking to take your walk with God a s ...more

This is a great book. I have learned so much. By God's grace, I am learning to apply God's Word in this area. I encourage everyone to read this book.
As the title suggests, How to Reach Your Full Potential for God is basically a self-help book written from a Christian perspective. Stanley makes use of the typical self-help style-book in employing numbered lists and rhetorical questions that could easily be transferred to index cards to be taped to the reader's mirror. What sets this one apart from the norm is the last phrase of the title that shifts the focus off of the self and back to God.

Unfortunately, the book felt simultaneously heavy o
This is a Scriptural-based reference guiding toward a more understanding and rewarding relationship with God in living the life God intended for us individually. This is a book of encouragement for all levels and categories of life. Eye-opening and inspiring to see how God works in our lives. Clear and practical, easy to follow.
Very basics of lining yourself you to be ready for what God has planned for you. Experiencing God:Knowing and doing the will of God by Henry Blackaby was the most powerful book I have read on God's purpose and how to find yours. I would say Stanley's book would be good if you have never before pondered what God purposed you for.
The core of this great book expounds the seven essentials for reaching your full potential for God. If you have read anything by Dr. Stanley you already know about his practical, step by step instructional way of writing. If you have yet to read this fine Bible teacher, start with this one!
Highly recommended.
This book contains clear understanding and direction on how to live for God. Dr. Stanley writes with simplicity and understanding for the reader. I recommend this book if you are searching to achieve a more fulfilled life and find answers you have looked for a long time.

This is the second book I've read by Dr. Stanley (the other being In Step with God) and both are great, motivational, affirming and inspirational about pursuing God's plan for your life. Definitely recommended!
I read this book at the request of a friend. It was insightful, but mostly just offered some reassurance/encouragement for what is going on in my life already. A timely read. :)
Aretha Montgomery
It was a good book. I especially enjoyed the area on starting new relationships. It gave some great advice and touched areas I had never thought of.
A decent if unoriginal guide to living the Christian life
Always good info from Charles Stanley
