Book Review: Put Your Dream to the Test

In “Put your Dream to the Test,” John Maxwell challenges his readers to look closely at their dreams. Many of us dream, yet few of us actually achieve them. This book offers practical insight into why that could be so. Maxwell asks 10 questions that focus on topics such as clarity, reality, passion, strategy, cost and fulfillment. Each chapter begins with an inspirational story of someone who has achieved their dream. Maxwell then gives practical advice on how the reader can do the same. The book begins with a dream test and concludes with a section to help you map out your dream. These tools help turn the book into more of a workbook, as opposed to simply a good read.

I personally enjoyed this book very much. Reading it not only helped me to clearly visualize my dream, but it also acted as a reminder that there is sacrifice and cost involved in achieving that dream. I highly recommend “Put Your Dream to the Test” to anyone with a dream looking for an inspirational book combined with practical advice. It could also make a great graduation or retirement gift. (It’s never too late to achieve your dreams!!)
