The original Maxims for Mavericks book that started it all. This is a physical book authored by Kent Healy prior to the creation of the M4M manifesto ebook.

In this book

What is a Maxim? An expression of a general truth, a principle, or a rule of conduct.

What is a Maverick? An original individual who is independent in thought and action.

This is a small, 74 page book that highllghts 21 maxims and expands upon each of them to offer deeper insights followed by thought provoking personal questions.

Readers will discover 21 rules and beliefs (maxims) Mavericks use to support their uncommon propensity to achieve incredible feats and create a life of success on their own terms—all the while enjoying the process.

Embracing the maxims that Maverick thinkers hold close to their hearts enables us to:

  • Become original thinkers and innovative leaders.
  • Break free from the status quo to form new perspectives and expectations about what is possible and practical.
  • Create our own reality by learning from those who have done it themselves.

 

Introduction

He who learns from the wise becomes wise.

96,100,000,000 is the number of people that some historians and mathematicians estimate have lived on planet earth.  What a great number of lifetimes—and within each of those lifetimes a series of experiences and important life lessons have been passed from one generation to the next over the course of thousands and thousands of years.  This wisdom has been expressed through creative fables and legendary folklore.  It was also cleverly woven into songs, dances and dramatic performances, stories, daily conversations, and eventually, the written word.

Regardless of how this wisdom and insight was conveyed, it was the very act of communicating these life lessons and philosophies that enabled humans to stay alive and advance into the civilized world we now reside in.  It’s humbling to know that we would not be where we are today without the valuable guidance and counsel that has come to us from preceding generations.  

The more extensive a man's knowledge of what has been done,
the greater will be his power of knowing what to do.
— Benjamin Disraeli
Former Prime Minister of the U.K.

Although we carry the family names and genes of our ancestors, there are individuals throughout history (and some individuals alive today) who stand out from the crowd.   They accomplished exceptional feats, redefined age-old limitations, instigated transformation through innovation, inspired others—all while enjoying the process.  These are the Mavericks...
