Failing Forward. Turning Mistakes into Stepping Stones for Success
Are some people born to achieve anything they want while others struggle? Call them lucky, blessed, or possessors of the Midas touch. What is the real reason for their success? Is it family background, wealth, greater opportunities, high morals, an easy childhood?
John C. Maxwell has the answer---the difference between average people and achieving people is their perception of and response to failure. Most people are never prepared to deal with failure. Maxwell says that if you are like him, coming out of school, you feared it, misunderstood it, and ran away from it. But Maxwell learned to make failure his friend, and he can teach you to do the same. "I want to help you learn how to confidently look the prospect of failure in the eye and move forward anyway," he says. "Because in life, the question is not if you will have problems, but how you are going to deal with them."
Maxwell covers the top reasons people fail and shows you how to master fear instead of being mastered by it. You'll discover that positive benefits can accompany negative experiences---if you have the right attitude. Chock full of action suggestions and real-life stories, Failing Forward will help you move beyond mistakes to fulfill your potential and achieve success.
