Make the Most of Your Talent

Beyond Talent is a prescription for how to make the most of your talent. Some exceptionally talented people never move beyond mediocrity, or burn out early. Others with fewer gifts succeed wildly. The answer lies in the attributes the individual uses to support their talent. Some of these include: belief, initiative, focus, practice and perseverance. Everyone who wants to be a leader, or to become a success in their field should read this book and think about these attributes.

I thoroughly enjoyed the author's style. His makes his points clearly and backs them up with anecdotes about famous and not so famous people. The small stories make it easy to remember the points he's making and give clues about how to use these truths to enhance your own life. If you want to make the most of whatever talents you have, I strongly suggest this book is required reading.

I reviewed this book as part of the Thomas Nelson Booksneeze Program.
