This innovative book from a New York Times bestselling author shows leaders, entrepreneurs, and creatives new ways to go far—faster than they ever thought possible.

Are you unstoppable? You can be. Most people allow others to put limitations on them. They even put limitations on themselves. Don’t ever do that again. You don’t have to be stoppable. Instead, unleash your potential.
When John Maxwell started his career in small-town Indiana, few people would have guessed he would go on to become a bestselling author and world-wide leadership expert. How did he do it? He didn’t put limits on himself. He believed he could make a difference in the world, and he kept going until he achieved it.
You can too. In The Unstoppable You, Maxwell teaches the seven ways you can tap into your potential and start overcoming obstacles, solving problems, and accomplishing results you previously thought impossible.
Go ahead. Take your next steps and achieve the success you’ve always dreamt of. Then never stop.

What’s keeping you from doing the things you really want to do?

What’s stopping you from attaining the success you desire?

What’s preventing you from reaching your full potential and achieving your dreams?

Everyone has limitations put on them by others. Everyone faces challenges. Everyone possesses limitations of their own. But what if those aren’t your greatest obstacles?

What if your greatest problem is you—and you don’t even know it?

Most people believe they are more limited than they actually are.

They never bump their head against the ceiling of their limitations because they never reach high enough to hit it.

Your potential is not fixed. Your limitations don’t limit you nearly as much as you think they do. The main reason you’re not unstoppable may be that you’re stopping yourself. You need to become open to the possibilities that are within you.

Don’t limit your own capacity.


—Elizabeth Edwards

How do you move from self-limiting to unstoppable?

The first step is self-awareness.

Knowing yourself is powerful. It enables you to see yourself clearly. It informs your decisions and helps you weigh opportunities. It allows you to test your limits. It empowers you to understand other people. It makes partnerships with others stronger. It allows you to maximize your strengths and minimize your weaknesses.

It opens the door to greater capacity.

The second step is focusing on your strengths.

Maybe you already know this. When you focus on improving your weaknesses, the best you can do is work your way up to average. Nobody is unstoppable when working in weaknesses. Success comes from doing what you do with excellence. Excellence comes from working in your strengths. Whatever you do well, try to do better.

That’s your greatest pathway forward to increased capacity.

The third step is to be willing to push your own boundaries.

That’s what Henry Ford had to do—literally. In the mid-1890s, Ford began building his first vehicle with bicycle parts and a combustion engine. He worked on it in a shop behind the rental house where he and his wife lived. When he completed his project, he called his vehicle the quadricycle. However, he’d made one small miscalculation: It was too big to fit through the doorway of his shop.

What did he do? He knocked down part of the wall to get it out. He wasn’t going to allow the door’s limitations to limit him.

Trying to improve your life and tapping into your potential for success without pushing your limitations is like building a car in a small shed and choosing not to knock out a wall to get it out on the road. All locked up, your potential for success can’t really go anywhere.

Remove the limitations and the world is open to you.



What most often stops you from doing what you want to do? Many people cite a lack of time: “I wish I had more hours in the day.”

There’s a problem with that thought. You can’t change time! You can’t get more, no matter what you do. The number of minutes in a day, days in a week, and weeks in a year is set. Even your time here on Earth is fixed. Everyone’s days are numbered.

There are many limitations you can push in life. There are many talents you can develop, skills you can improve, and capacities you can increase.

Time is not one of them.

What should you do? Give up?


Focus on managing and harnessing your energy instead.
