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!

    "Hope!"

    Hope is what this book has given me. It is one of the most inspiring books I ever read (listened to).

    "You've got to be kidding me!!!"

    I have never been more shocked that someone would cut a book short and post it online for a quick buck. I cannot recommend this book because it's a pamphlet---not a book! I rated as I did because the end of the 2 hours insinuated that what I had purchased wasn't even including the full detail of the text. I'm embarrassed and wish I could find a way to get a refund for my purchase. Unfortunately, there's no way to refund the time I spent wasting my attention on this abbreviated farce and I am new to this platform so I am clueless as to how to go about ascertaining a refund. I guess I'll put the title of the book to the test and fail my way toward a refund haha... Maybe Audible will be both forgiving and generous in accommodating my great desire to save face and repent of my purchase of this abomination that I wouldn't wish upon anyone. If someone is going to post a book for a listen, try reaching down, grabbing some, and place the entire book for someone to appreciate. It did nothing for my desire to purchase a complete copy; it disappointed me and dropped my faith in humanity.

    "everyone frustrated and feeling low should read"

    what a fabulous book! it really lays out and proves that successful people fail more than unsuccessful people. the only difference is how they view the failure and react.

    "Courage to fail"

    This is a great book. I have always defined myself by my failures, as though I am a failure. After this book, I am actually feeling a sense of courage to go and try again! Removing me from my failed attempts at things is challenging but monumental.

    "Great book for personal growth and development!!"

    John C Maxwell is brilliant with his words and his wisdom. We are all on this journey of life together, I would much rather be failing forward minded than just failing. I wish I could get all of the world's skeptics and pessimists to read this!

    "Eceptional concepts!"

    Concepts are made real with excellent stories! Makes the reader comfortable with failing and without feeling defeated.
