Finding success through failures is not difficult. I have failed so many times at so many different things. My life is a chunk of failures, but guess what? Those failures lead to my successes also. I have experienced the downright worst of times and also have had some success. On our way to success, we have to understand that failure is a part of our progress and should be embraced, not avoided.
Instead of having fear, we need to embrace failure firmly, look for the signs and learn every time we face it. Failure is not a burden and offers incredible value if we know how to approach it. This book was written to help people embrace that concept. At the end of this audio book, you will have a firm understanding of failure and how to use it to your benefit.

Use failure to fuel your journey. Make sure you know how to recognize failure. Michael Jordan and Twitter failed but then succeeded. AOL didn't recognize failure so it failed. Those are the main points I took from the book.
The content is extremely shallow. It reads more like a long locker room pep talk than a book. You can find YouTube videos with similar content. No real original ideas. Narrator is okay.
Moving and encouraging!
Hearing success stories of people who failed and then succeeded - Twitter, Wright brothers, etc...
Great narrator, well balanced. Doesn't put you to sleep, but isn't over the top excited like so many narrators can be. Kept me engaged on a long road trip. I like his voice
Failure does not equal defeat
Benjamin uses good examples that tech savvy readers will relate to and gain good ideas for looking at how they can can overcome pitfalls that stop many people from achieving success and fail upwards.
I really enjoyed how this book was read by Rob Actis. His voice and intonations enlivened this book.
I listened to the book during three sessions.
Yes I would listen again because the narrator captivated my attention and made the book interesting. In all honesty...the book did not divulge any new information that I have not read in a dozen other self-help books. If I were to have bought it in the store I would have probably stopped reading after the first few chapters, but the narrator Rob Actis read the book in such a way that it stimulated me and I found myself pondering my life and the actions that I have taken that have gotten me where I am today.
Like I mentioned above...the book did not provide me with any new information. I enjoyed it because of the way it was read. It captivated me.
No. This is the first book that I have listed to.
I will specifically remember his inaccurate history of Colonel Sanders rise to fame. It was not factual and I am not sure where the author got the information from, but it seems that he added his own twist to try to make it seem more interesting.
This is an easy book to listen to. It is articulated very well and can be paused and picked right back up where one paused it...without having to rewind and listen to it again. I think that for a novice reader it is a great book to start with and it was narrated in such a way that it is appropriate for all ages.
This is very good positive reading that can help us all in our efforts to improve our lives. It is too easy to quit and say "I knew it wouldn't work out" when trying something. This book reminds us that it's about process and not about instant success.
The only thing that prevents success isn't the failures along the way, it's deciding to quit before we succeed.
Rob Actis delivers an amazing thoughtful and natural read that makes the material seem like the only reasonable conclusion.
No of course not. I have a day job ya know.
