➳ [Read] ➮ Failing Forward By John C. Maxwell ➾ – Agedanna.info

Failing Forward Listened as an Audiobook off of YouTube as I worked. I enjoyed the beginning half or the book, but I feel like the end half was just repeat. Good moral point about how a person reacts to failure becomes the difference to growing or remaining in the same situation. Rating books

I'm going to read this again with my teenagers. The first part I felt like I knew already but as I read more in this book there was a lot of helpful how to advice and practical steps to live out what he was saying and I appreciated that. One of the quotes at the end "Schools teach the technical disciplines such as math and science, but not about mental health. What they need to teach is how to deal with problems...but to succeed you have to be open to problems. You have to be open to failure."

I'm a recovering perfectionist so this is good stuff for me to read. I'm excited to go through it with my kids to inspire and encourage them as they walk through life and give them tools in their back pockets that I wish I had at a younger age.

It was my high school friend, Alein N., who introduced me to one of the world’s finest motivational speaker, when he let me borrowed John C. Maxwell’s How to Become a Person of Influence. Since then, I have been an avid fan of John C. Maxwell, especially in his book on 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership.


Before Christmas break started, I visited our university library to browse some books. Fortunately, I came across John Maxwell’s Failing Forward. After a quick reading on its cover page, I immediately asked the library staff to list the book on my library card.


Once again, John C. Maxwell never failed to amaze me. The book provides practical lessons on how to make mistakes into steppingstones for success. Maxwell made me realize that there are no mistakes, only lessons learned. His book reveals the following major differences between Failing Backward and Failing Forward.

For me, Failing Forward is a gem. The book is very persuasive, insightful, and engaging by nature. It provides practical questions at the end of each chapter, which could help your reflect deeply, and evaluate yourself. This book is a MUSTHAVE item to all professionals, housewives, husbands, and students who wish to change their attitude towards failures.




Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure or nothing. ~~Helen Keller "Failure is an inside job." That is the message of this book. It teaches us the difference between "average" people and those who achieve. That difference is how they view, and how they respond to "failure". We learn to redefine both failure and successin terms of what we learn, of course. But it goes well beyond delivering a "There, there, things aren't so bad" message. It provides strategies for effective cognitive reframing, along with lots of inspiration, and examples we can identify with. There is much of value heresomething on every beautifully edited page. I recommend this book for those facing challenges themselves, and for those who support them. “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

I am in a difficult stage in my life where I have (potentially) lost my life savings, so I desperately need to read books that deal with the feeling of failure.

But this is was not the book for that. One of the author’s own personal anecdotes of failure is something like this. He was a young preacher and every year a group votes for him (I think it is parishioners or something, but I can’t remember). He expects to get all Yeses from a group of (I think) twenty or so people. But, here is the awful thing that happened, he got ONE NO!! Oh no! He felt devastated. But his father talked to him, gave him some sage advice, and he turned that failure to an opportunity.

What??

That’s like someone having lost their child, attended a group get over their pain, and the speaker tells that they should get over such tragedy, and telling his own sad story of when he once lost his favorite Pokemon card. And then try to teach them a lesson based on that.

That’s really the book to me. He doesn’t really seem to understand what failure is. It’s not his shitty anecdote, nor is it some of the stories where someone doesn’t succeed at first, but then does.

“Regret for the things we did can be tempered by time; it is regret for the things we did not do that is inconsolable.” "The only way to get ahead is to fail early, fail often and fail forward." (John C. Maxwell, Failing Forward)

If you want a different take on failure, then you definitely should read this book. If you are not failing, then you probably are not achieving much. You need to try something harder. Most of the greatest achievers that have ever lived were once the greatest failures and the author gives many examples of these superachievers.

As Henry Ford says, "Failure is simply the opportunity to begin again, this time more intelligently."

Fail forward, not backward. The author will show you the steps :) It was full of inspirational and motivational thoughts that helped me deal with life as a whole... 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 There are only two roads to take in life:

רוצים לשמוע אותי מדבר על הספר? !צפו בוידאו סיקור :)

One is smooth and easy and anyone who wishes, will arrive shortly to
it's destination: mediocrity.

The second is hidden at first, and when exposed is frightening: long and full of inconsistencies and obstacles. The only reason one might walk this road is the potential unending rewards along the way and summits.

Two roads. One promises a casual walk with little rewards,
the other promises a long painful walk with amazing rewards.
As humans we would have wanted to invent an easy road with amazing rewards, but alas all of those "Get Rich Quick", "Get Love With A Step
By Step Formula", "Become Healthy With A Magical Pill" provide nothing
in the long run.

What then, is the way to preserve in the painful and rewarding road?
The answer is ATTITUDE.

Failing Forward is a reintroduction book about this painful little thing
called: failure. Why the most rewarding road is full of obstacles?
Why the road for achieving dreams is so inconsistent and long?
The answer is simple: If you already had what it took to achieve what
you want in life, then there is nothing anyone can teach you! and you
should be satisfied!

But, if you desire things that are not in your reach, then you have a
lot to learn. The road of excellence is painful only if you believe you
know everything, and important to those who wish to learn.
This is not school or university, this road doesn't provide a certificate
or a secure job, it provides personal skills, connections, opportunities
and experience, that, when combined smartly, will bring results.
If one is willing to learn and grow from every mistake and failure,
he can turn them into stepping stones for success.

Understanding how to fail forward, is key to acquire useful means to success. Failing Forward will shed a new light at the concept of failure, and may even make it your new best friend in the road for excellence.

“If you're not failing, you're probably not really moving forward.”

P.S. Remember to smell the roses and relax from time to time! :)
