Description and Reviews
From The Publisher:

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

The not-talked-about, terrible truth is that all roads to achievement lead through the land of failure. Every person you admire has walked this road: the Wright brothers, Arnold Palmer, Mary Kay Ash, Truett Cathey, Erma Bombeck, Tony Gwynn, Amelia Earhart, Sergio Zyman, Hank Aaron, George Bernard Shaw and Mother Teresa have all experienced failure and learned how to turn it into a stepping stone for success. Leadership expert Peter Drucker says, "The better a man is, the more mistakes he will make, for the more new things he will try." Mistakes really do pave the road to achievement. Let John Maxwell teach you the 15 steps to turning mistakes into steppingstones for success!
