The Potential Principle, by Mark Sanbirn
The ultimate strategy for succeeding in your personal and professional life.
Are you living up to your true potential? Do you feel like you have more potential? You may be the best in your field—the best athlete, scholar, CEO, parent, mathematician, teacher, or mechanic. But that doesn’t mean you can’t still be better; you haven’t maximized your potential.
Leadership expert and international bestselling author of The Fred Factor and You Don’t Need a Title to Be a Leader, Mark Sanborn invites you to get better and close the gap between how good you are and how good you can be.
Teaching you to employ Sanborn’s uniquely designed “Potential Matrix” to specific areas of your life, The Potential Principle provides you with the tools you need to see breakthrough improvement in key areas of your life.
One of the most exciting opportunities is right in front of you every day: pursuing your true potential. You’re on your way. You can make your best second-best. You can be better.
My Thoughts: It seems like lately the motivational books are really in, not that the trend is a bad thing! I liked a lot of the advice What Color is Your Parachute 2018, Book Review . but it was almost all job related so I was very happy to get the Potential Principle for review from the publisher. It’s a small book, under 170 pages including the appendices but it has a lot of great information. The whole book is about becoming better, even if you already think you’re great! I love the parts about teaching yourself and being open to learning new things, as well as getting to “a desired space” even when it seems like there is no way. For sure a great book for established people to read who want more.
