Publisher's Summary

number-one New York Times best-selling author John C. Maxwell believes that any setback, whether professional or personal, can be turned into a step forward when you possess the right tools to turn a loss into a gain. Drawing on nearly fifty years of leadership experience, Dr. Maxwell provides a roadmap for winning by examining the eleven elements that constitute the DNA of learners who succeed in the face of problems, failure, and losses.

1. Humility - The Spirit of Learning
2. Reality - The Foundation of Learning
3. Responsibility - The First Step of Learning
4. Improvement - The Focus of Learning
5. Hope - The Motivation of Learning
6. Teachability - The Pathway of Learning
7. Adversity - The Catalyst of Learning
8. Problems - The Opportunities of Learning
9. Bad Experiences - The Perspective for Learning
10. Change - The Price of Learning
11. Maturity - The Value of Learning

Learning is not easy during down times, it takes discipline to do the right thing when something goes wrong. As John Maxwell often points out - experience isn't the best teacher; evaluated experience is.

    Story
    "Good book for reflecting, bad narration"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    No. I've heard Maxwell narrate a number of his own books and this does not capture the reflection I'd expect. I feel like the meaning is diminished or changed as a result.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Good things to reflect upon.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Chris Sorensen’s performances?

    No - found it quite distracting.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Chapter on humility.

    "Another goldmine of life-altering knowledge"

    Loved this audio book! Some of the lessons were familiar. Some were new. But all the lessons were diamonds!!! No doubt as I implement what I'm learning, I will see significant growth. Will be listening to this again this week in preparation to actually sit down and read it myself.

    Story
    "Good Book, Great Education"
    What made the experience of listening to Sometimes You Win - Sometimes You Learn the most enjoyable?

    Maxwell is by far by my favorite author. Pushing myself into the corporate world at the age of 18, was difficult to say the least. I am now 20 years old and managing mutual funds for a living. John taught me that it isn't always going to be easy, but it will be worth it. I've heard him speak dozen's of times, and never miss a book! Thanks for all of the hard work you put in John. Keep em' coming!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Sometimes You Win - Sometimes You Learn?

    Hands down the story of the little girl in the Holocaust... Truly is unbelievable.


    Have you listened to any of Chris Sorensen’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Never heard Chris Sorenesen perform before, wasn't bad at all!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Absolutley.

    "Loved it!"

    Enjoyed this audiobook thoroughly. In business, it's true, that there aren't many teachings on how to lose, which is inevitable. This audiobook was encouraging. Relatable stories, and great quotes! Found myself pulling to the side of the road to write things down!
    Highly recommend and will be listening to more John Maxwell.
