We often treat the word capacity as if it were a natural law of limitation. Unfortunately, most of us are much more comfortable defining what we perceive is off limits rather than what’s possible. Could it be that many people have allowed what they perceive as capacity to define them? Have they allowed their perception to limit their attitudes about their potential?In his newest book, John Maxwell identifies seventeen core capacities. Some of these are abilities we all already possess, such as energy, creativity and leadership. Others are aspects of our lives controlled by our choices, like our attitudes, character, and intentionality. Maxwell examines each of these seventeen capacities, and provides clear and actionable advice on how you can increase your potential in each. He will guide you on how to identify, grow, and apply your critical capacities to your daily life. Once you’ve blown the “cap” off your capacities, you’ll find yourself more successful—and fulfilled—in your daily life.Available Formats: Retail CD Buy-In14.5 hrs • Nov/08/2016
Built of titanium and a chrome-nickel alloy known as Inconel X, the X-15 was the fastest plane ever built, streaking through the lower reaches of outer space even before the first space capsules reached orbit. First tested in 1959, the X-15 proved to be a crucial testing ground for the astronauts and hardware in the Mercury, Gemini, Apollo, and even the Space Shuttle programs. Celebrated reporter Richard Tregaskis spent time with the pilots, engineers, and other key personnel involved in the project. We learn of the years of planning and design, devastating onboard explosions, exhilarating triumphs, and, above all, the personal and professional sacrifices that paved the way for the enduring legacy of the blisteringly fast X-15 rocket plane.Available Formats:12.5 hrs • Sep/28/2016 • Unabridged
