Thomas Nelson Failing Forward

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 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," says Maxwell. "Because in life, the question is not if you will have problems, but how you are going to deal with them. Stop failing backward and start failing forward!"

Failure should never stop one from acheiving their goals in life. If at first you don't succeed try, and try and try again until you accomplish what you put your mind to do. This book gives you reasons why we fail, fear, discouragement, and etc., but this book also encourages you not to let failure stop you. Make goals and once you accomplish that goal move on and your confidence will improve with each step.

I'm currently half way through this book. I've had some great "ah-ha!" moments. After reading the first chapter, I passed the book onto a friend to encourage him and purchased another for myself.
I expect to reread "Failing Forward" to keep the positive flow going.

A leadership class instructor/friend lent me his book. I loved it so much I am buying my own and will be buying it for others as well. I have suffered perfectionism most of my life and lived with haunting failures and being afraid to go forward. Now I realize I needed those failures to grow to successes. John Maxwell has done a suberb job telling wonderful stories of many people-their failures which were important parts of their lives and growth. So then, were they really failures? Are yours?
