الموهبة لا تكفى أبداً لـ جون سى . ماكسويل ، إن كثيراً من الموهوبين الذين بدءوا بأفضلية على الآخرين يفقدون تلك الأفضلية ، لأنهم يعتمدون على موهبتهم بدلاً من تنميتها وتطويرها ، فهم يفترضون أن الموهبة وحدها سوف تبقيهم في المقدمة ، ولكنهم لا يدركون الحقيقة وهي أنهم لو ركنوا إلى موهبتهم فقط ، فسرعان ما سيسبقهم الآخرون ويتفوقون عليهم ، فالموهبة أكثر شيوعاً مما يظنون ، وكما يقول ...more

In this volume, he asserts that "talent is never enough." If it were, "then the most effective and influential people would always be the most talented ones but that is often not the case...Clearly talent isn't everything." That said, he hastens to add, talent is worthy off our admiration and must be perceived in the proper perspective. For Maxwell, it is "a God-given gift." For others who do not share his faith, it is nonetheless usually referred to as a "natural" as opposed to an acquired capa ...more

To my knowledge, I've never had a John Maxwell book fail to deliver a great read. In reading this book, I must agree, "Talent Is Never Enough". This may seem rather cliche, but I must concur with the author. Thankfully, he offers antidotes to ensure talent is not wasted and left in disuse or disrepair. Not only does the author offer ways to make sure talent is not wasted, but also offers questions to work at the end of each chapter in order to keep us intellectually honest. A must read if you've ...more

I think I can reduce the thesis of this book to the following: "Talent can get you in the door, but it takes a lot sweat and tears to make it to the top."

This is a pretty recent book, having been published in 2007. As such, it has more contemporary references than many of the other Maxwell books I have read.

I felt less of the self-promotion in this book, but it was still present. If humility is something Mr. Maxwell was blessed with, it doesn't come across well in his books.

This book is good, b

This book really helped me to think about how can I be better. Even if I think I have not found my talent to do something... because I'm good at nothing. This book tells me to use these qualities that John C. Maxwell points... and maybe if I follow them, I will become great even with my lack of talent. That would be amazing... I'd like to exploit the minimum talent I have. Also, after I read "17 essential qualities of a team player" I realized with the knowledge I got from "Talent is never enoug ...more

Finally finished reading this book - have half-started at least twice. Some of the items that most caught my eye had nothing to do with talent at all (punctuality, effort, patience, unselfishness), which is at least 25% of the overall point of the book.

Once you move beyond the breakers of the book (believe in yourself, passion is greater than the plan, take initiative and kick fear in the teeth), the chapters on Focus and Practice have some very good illustrations. The John Walsh story (America

don't let my three star rating fool you. I think this is a pretty solid book but like a teacher on a bell curve I have to be stingy with my rating system. one thing i have learned by reading this book is that talented people are often time their own worst enemy.. it made me sit back and evaluate my ways and what i considered to be my personal talents. the line for the book that hit me most was this: "when it comes to believing in themselves people are simply agnostic!" yeah chew on that for a mi ...more

I’m exhausted; this book goes from a decent management / leadership book to a religious indoctrination one in the last part. Essentially it tell us that in order to achieve success talent is not enough, meaning that the personal abilities should be complemented with thirteen proposed concepts to be developed. I got a few good book recommendations but as he constantly mentions his own books I just couldn’t avoid thinking that Gilderoy Lockhart’s “Magical Me” must look something like this.

This does what "Talent is Overrated" and "Outliers" fails to do, it gives you concrete steps on how to be a talent plus person. Talent is as common as table salt, but a talent plus person is rare. This book is filled with advice on how to be a talent plus person. I enjoyed it and will read it again! ...more

Really loved this book! Being a professional athlete it was really interesting to read each new chapter about how to add to your talent and to elevate your talent in certain ways to not just have talent but become talent plus! Always give extra to become extra!

Talent is never enough. Everyone has talent but it takes character to succeed and to remain successful. John Maxwell one of my all time favorite authors and public speakers.

As always John Maxwell delivers great advice with great examples. I even got my 13 year old daughter to listen to some of it and she enjoyed it enough to listen to more of it later in the day.

It was another typical Maxwell book. The points are valid. But it’s dragging too much.

I found this book helpful. It is written with the same style as other books I've read by Maxwell where there are plenty of anecdotes and quotes to support the authors reasoning. The history of Lewis of Lewis & Clarke was especially interesting. The only part I would not have included in this book was about hunting doves in South America. Evidently it is nothing to shoot several hundred doves a day because there are millions of them. My first though was that this was probably the exact same thing ...more

I speed-read through the book with the intention to look for things that could complement the CliftonStrengths Profiling tool. The book contents are consistent with the Strengths-Based approach, but I found little that met my objectives.

The book on the whole has some valuable advise and suggestions, and is organised in an easy to read manner. Most people would find something useful that they can apply in their lives. I personally found that the principles are rather generic and not necessarily r
I started out really liking this and I still value the 13 truths the author espouses. However, because of his lack of balance and representation, I can’t read another of his books.

The author treats us to overly long history lessons and sport coach biographies. Almost every quote is by a man. Virtually every “inspiring” story is about a man. The author plugs his own books incessantly. The quotes he chooses miss the mark: they usually weren’t clever or impactful enough. The adages are impotent an

This book is very good! People need to read this book. Most of people will said to someone who is successful that person succeed because he/she is talented. But less than they can see that the talent only the iceberg. Most of the effort, painstaking, tears, and sweats are barely visible. This book will tell you that talent is never enough . This book said there are 13 things to make the talent works more. I do enjoy these 13 chapters and let me thoroughly see the real meaning of the talent and t ...more
I'll save you 6 hours of your life: you can not rely on mere talent to bring success. You have to have "talent plus". What's the plus? Many things: perseverance, character, initiative, passion, etc.

It's a nice little lift me up if you want antidotes about people who worked harder than you would have thought to become household names. I'm more of a "give me step by step directions" kind of girl, but this was alright.

Took me a while because I only listened to this one. Lots of good helpful ways to be a talent plus person. Like being on time. That takes no talent and something we can all work on! I liked his stories about people and examples and hope I can remember them. I also want to surround myself with good people and do my part to contribute to the different teams I am a part of.

A good read. Not revolutionary but still solid.

“If you are interested in success, it’s easy to set your standards in terms of other people’s accomplishments and then let other people measure you by those standards. But the standards you set for yourself are always more important. They should be higher than the standards anyone else would set for you, because in the end you have to live with yourself, and judge yourself, and feel good about yourself. And the best way to do that is to live up to your highest potential. So set your standards high and keep them high, even if you think no one else is looking. Somebody out there will always notice, even if it’s just you.” 4 likes
