“John Maxwell Team members are people of value who value people and add value to them.”

This past August, Mike and I attended the live International Maxwell Certification event in Orlando, Florida. It was an amazing experience getting to be around such a wonderful group of positive energetic people. 🙂 Here are just a few golden nuggets of wisdom from the event.

  • We must value ourselves before we can value others. We cannot give what we do not have.
  • Success happens to us. Significance happens through us.
  • We teach what we know, but we reproduce who we are.
  • Eeyore is the spirit animal of the pessimist.
  • Leadership is making decisions based on principles, not on optics.
  • If you do nothing, you drift. No one has ever drifted to a desired location.
  • We overcome difficult times on the outside by Becoming bigger and better on the inside.
  • There are some people on your team who need to be off the bus.
  • How we view things is how we do things.
  • Don’t hide your light. When you hide your light, you’re keeping it from someone else.
  • Hold tightly to purpose and loosely to plans.
  • Speak life into the lives of others including the one in the mirror.
  • Fear keeps us safe but also keeps us from opportunity.
  • Your story is your superpower.
  • It’s only over when you choose to quit.
  • Spectacular results are always preceded by unspectacular preparation.
  • Success happens day by day not in a day.
  • You’ve got to get really good at cheering for yourself. Others will cheer for you after you’ve made it.
  • To grow as an entrepreneur, you have to be OK with things being done in a way different from how you would do them.
  • When we think nothing is happening, something is happening. The effort you put in to grow and develop is never wasted, it is stored.
