Then again, most people are nowhere near as successful as they wish they were.” The Go-Giver tells the story of an ambitious young man named Joe who yearns for success. Joe is a true go-getter, though sometimes he feels as if the harder and faster he works, the further away his goals seem to be. Joe learns that changing his focus from getting to giving—putting others’ interests first and continually adding value to their lives—ultimately leads to unexpected returns. Imparted with wit and grace, The Go-Giver is a classic bestseller that brings to life the old proverb “Give and you shall receive.”   "The Go-Giver," a The Wall Street Journal and BusinessWeek Bestseller, has sold over 700,000 copies. Since its release it has consistently stayed in the top 25 on 800ceoread's Business Book Bestsellers List. It has been translated into 21 languages. It was rated #10 on Inc. Magazine's list of the Most Motivational Books Ever Written, and was on HubSpot's 20 Most Highly Rated Sales Books of All Time.

How can you do more of that today?Max Out Quotes:“The number one thing that stops people from being writers is they start writing and then they squash it. You have to create a space where you can genuinely be free to put down stuff that will probably be awful.”“The identification of what we do with our self-worth is such a trap.”
