Publisher Description

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?

New York Times best-selling author 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. Maxwell says that if you are like him, coming out of school, you feared it, misunderstood it, and ran away from it. But Maxwell has 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!"

Outstanding Advice

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?

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.
