Motivational Quotes by John Maxwell

John Maxwell Quotes

Motivation gets you going; Discipline keeps you going.

To be great at anything, you have to be consistent at something.

When you want to really get to know someone, ask:

  • What do you dream about?
  • What do you sing about?
  • What do you cry about?

In the end, people are persuaded not by what we say, but by what they understand.

If you’re at the head of the class, you are in the wrong class. You want to be put in a place where people have a desire for you to change.

People won’t go along with you if they can’t get along with you.

You need to follow your passion to find your purpose.

When you speak, do you have passion? Ask:

  • Do I believe what I say?
  • Has it changed me?
  • Do I believe it will help others?
  • Have I seen it change others?

People are like water: they find their own level. We tend to feel most comfortable, most “at home” with persons whose self esteem level resembles our own.

John Maxwell doing pushups! BEACHBODY!

People respond to what they are prepared to believe. And what prepares them for what they believe is their experience.

You may want to do what I do but would you like to do what I did in order to do what I do? (BOOM! LOVED THIS!)

Our response to failure is what causes us to fail. (another BOOM! This one made the most impact!)

People who take the high road don’t do so because no other roads are open to them. The high road is uphill, no one travels it by accident.

When you conduct yourself according to your highest standard, when you know you’ve done all you can do, you can let criticism roll off your back like rain.

A boss is over you, but a leader walks right beside you.

So just typing these John Maxwell quotes out has me ALL PUMPED UP! WOW! LOVE IT! If you think personal development does not make a difference in your life, YOU ARE WRONG! It is a game changer!
