Do you have a dream – something that you want to achieve, but wonder if it’s out of your reach? If so, Put Your Dream to the Test by John Maxwell could be a great resource for you.
I was already familiar with John Maxwell, though I hadn’t previously read any of his books. In this volume, he presents ten questions which, if answered properly, will help you to accomplish your dream. Each chapter covers one question in detail and includes a real-life example of someone who reached their goals. Questions at the end of each chapter allow you to assess how you are doing with that particular aspect of your dream. At the end of the book is a “Dream Map” which gives further opportunity to delve into the material covered in each chapter.
The book is well-written, sharing information in an interesting and understandable way. It’s motivational, yet gives practical ideas for implementing the principles presented. As I read through the book, I saw the immediate application of it in terms of career dreams and recognized how beneficial it would be in that arena. However, as I neared the end of the book, I realized that I could apply these same questions when it comes to my “dream” as a mother – that our two daughters will grow to be women who love and serve Jesus Christ.
