Description

International leadership expert helps listeners change their attitudes and beliefs about failure so they can make positive changes in their lives and achieve their full potential.

The major difference between achieving people and average people is their perception of and response to failure. John C. Maxwell covers the top reasons people fail and shows how to master fear instead of being mastered by it. Listeners will 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 men and women move beyond mistakes to fulfill their potential and achieve success.

  • (5/5)
    Good read and worth a listen. Always encouraged by John Maxwell

    Listen to this book! If you are a person focus on making yourself better, then I highly encourage you to spend some time taking in the knowledge and advice given in this book. Although only two hours in length, there is a lot of information packed into these two hours. I'm always concerned about taking the right notes when I listen to an audiobook, but the narrator of this book did an excellent job with identifying quotes, bullet points, and even sub bullet points. I've always enjoyed reading books from John Maxwell, and this book is definitely going to be added to my recommended list for other people to read in efforts to better themselves.

    Great book! Finished listening to audio in day. Failure feels bad but if you learn from it, nothing will scare you.

  • (4/5)
    A good book with nice insights. Inspirational. However, I find that is is lacking actual actionable steps on the *how* of doing the items outlines, ie. "get motivation - get yourself up in the morning..." --- yes, but *how*!

    To succeed, you have to be open to problems. You have to be open to failure. And as you go up the ladder, you gain the right to get more problems. Great inspiring book,

    Eye opening, heart opening, soul opening, life-changing: if you actually take the time to listen/read, learn, apply, and repeat.

    Wow, what an amazing book. Fear of failure paralizes me into non-action; this helped me put things into perspective. I now look at failure in a different way. A more positive way.
  • (5/5)
    It was simple and awesome book with small chapters. It gave me a different perspective on how to see failure and suggesting to always fail forward with examples are inspiring. I highly recommend this short book from John Maxwell

  • (5/5)
    It is a truly an inspiring book, which deserves a second and third listen. It is dense with life altering strategies that will help for years to come. It’s an experience I recommend. Please put the book to the test. I know I will.

    Hands-down one of the best books about improving yourself improve your life and improving your world
  • (3/5)
    Don't get me wrong. Maxwell's book contains a wealth of helpful information. But the fact is, very little of the material was new to me. That's probably because I've read dozens of books that focus on achieving success and coping with setbacks. "Failing Forward" served as more of a reminder about some of the lynchpins of success. The biggest takeaway, of course, involves the reality that success hinges more on how we play our proverbial cards and less about the cards we're dealt. The book includes dozens of enlightening anecdotes that reinforce Maxwell's themes -- a few too many anecdotes for my liking. My recommendation: if you've only read a few books that focus on success strategies, this tome will be insightful.

    Some of my favorite quotes:
    “People are training for success when they should be training for failure. Failure is far more common than success; poverty is more prevalent than wealth; and disappointment more normal than arrival.” J. Wallace Hamilton
    “Many of life's failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up.“ Thomas A. Edison
    To achieve your dreams, you must embrace adversity and make failure a part of your life. If you are not failing, you are probably not moving forward.
    “Don't let your learning lead to knowledge. Let your learning lead to action.” Jim Rohn
    “By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail.” Benjamin Franklin
    “Highly successful leaders ignore conventional wisdom and take chances. Their stories inevitably include a defining moment or key decision when they took a significant risk and thereby experienced a breakthrough.” Larry Osborne

    Outstanding book on overcoming adversity. A must read.

    I believe it was Edison that was asked after 1000 failed attempts to make a working light bulb if he was discouraged. His response - (paraphrase) "no, I now know 1000 ways that it wont work". It is a good book for keeping your head up and learning from your mistakes. Life is often more about how we respond to what happens then what actually happens. Filled with good stories of "overcomers" from all walks of life.
