Are some people born to achieve anything they want while others struggle? What is the real reason for their success? 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. Bestselling author John C. Maxwell says that if you are like him, you feared it, misunderstood it, and ran away from it. However, he has learned to make failure his friend, and he can teach you to do the same.

Maxwell takes a closer look at failure and reveals that the secret of moving beyond failure is to use it as a lesson and a stepping-stone.

In Failing Forward, Maxwell will show you:
the key main reasons people fail,how to master fear instead of being mastered by it,and positive benefits can accompany negative experiences.
Filled with action suggestions and real-life stores, Failing Forward is a strategic guide that will help you move beyond mistakes to fulfill your potential and achieve success.

Discover how to confidently look the prospect of failure in the eye and move forward anyway. 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!


  • Great book!

    By Kmac762
    Putting failure into perspective and learning to fail forward is a great catchy title and makes total sense.
  • Good book

    By Jair Eugenio
    Motivational and acquiring of new information. Full of anecdotes and great examples of failure and improvement. Long and sweet.
  • Outstanding Advice

    By LJBoucher
    One of the better books available to support entrepreneurs, late starters or anyone gong through tumultuous times. Would read again. Downside is that the ebook is fraught with spelling errors and sometimes jumbled paragraphs that were under looked during editing. I paid 9.99 for this read, which I felt was too much for poor editing. Note: does the author know?
  • Fantastic!

    Easy to learn and implement, just ignore all the grammatical errors!
  • Great book, but quite a few "typos" along the way

    I will be needing to buy the book in another format in order to read it in its fullness. This version has quite a few "typos" (sometimes even missing almost an entire sentence) which can make reading it a bit daunting. The book, in and of itself is great! Sadly, it has a tiny bit of its content missing.
