The Key to Everything by Matt Keller (Nelson Books)
Most people want the key that unlocks success to everything, but few know where to find it. Matt Keller offers the answer is in his new book, The Key to Everything, which explores why some people succeed and others don’t. Keller is the founder and leader of Next Level Church in Fort Meyer, Fla., one of the fastest-growing congregations in America.
The Key to Everything focuses on a person’s ability to be teachable. Although many readers skip a preface and/or introduction to get to the heart of the book, this one includes both, and each is a key. The preface examines who the reader is, while the introduction explains what Keller means by “teachability.” It graphically illustrates how to use his idea in applying the instructions to oneself. The remainder of the book explores the roadblocks to and characteristics of this theory, and how to develop a lifestyle of being teachable and therefore successful.
Learning is a lifelong process, and unlocking oneself to receive knowledge by being teachable leads to wisdom. Scripture says, “Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding” (Proverbs 4:7). The Key to Everything is a good place to start.
