Failing Forward

It seems that some people are born to achieve anything they want. Some would say they are lucky, are blessed, or have the Midas touch. But what truly is the reason for their success? New York Times best selling author John C. Maxwell has the answer: The difference between average people and achieving people is their perception of and response to failure.

Publisher's Summary

It seems that some people are born to achieve anything they want. Some would say they are lucky, are blessed, or have the Midas touch. But what truly is the reason for their success? Family background, wealth, greater opportunities, high morals, an easy childhood? New York Times best selling author John C. Maxwell has the answer: The difference between average people and achieving people is their perception of and response to failure.

Maxwell says that if you are like him, you were never prepared to deal with failure. Coming out of school, he feared it, misunderstood it, and ran away from it. But he's learned to make failure his friend, and he can teach you to do the same.

Listen to everything by John C. Maxwell.

    "Great Book for Those who Have a Pessimist Attitude"

    As always, Maxwell does a great job at clearly covering a topic in an organized and easy to follow way. This is a great book for anyone who is in the trap of negative self-talk and can't quite seem to take themselves to the next level. It's also a great book for anyone who simply wants to give themselves a good re-charge of their optimism.

    Maxwell gives 15 great ways to make failure become a stepping stone to success through viewing it differently. If you have recently suffered a failure and can't get out of the dumps, buy this and listen to it!

    "Failure is a good thing if you learn from it."

    Loved it. Everyone fails @ some point. Those that brush off failure, will never know greatness.

    "Great book"
    What did you love best about Failing Forward?

    Just beginning investing in real estate and this was a great read to add to my collection, giving me a rounded collection of information-how to succeed; how to keep going when you don't.

    "Quick & Easy"

    It was over too fast! I just realized it was the abridged version...maybe that is why! John C Maxwell always has insightful words for future success. This was just as fabulous as the rest of his works. Just do it! Stop procrastinating and waiting for everything to be done and perfect, JUST DO IT! Then fix what didn't work...fail forward. Makes sense. Now I only have to JUST DO IT! LOL
