Publisher's Summary

It seems that some people are born to achieve anything they want. Some would say they are lucky, are blessed, or have the Midas touch. But what truly is the reason for their success? 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.Maxwell says that if you are like him, you were never prepared to deal with failure. Coming out of school, he feared it, misunderstood it, and ran away from it. But he's learned to make failure his friend, and he can teach you to do the same.

Life-changing perspective

To some of you, this book might be basic stuff but for me this was life-changing. I find myself listening to it over and over. I am hoping that the concepts will finally sink in. Until about a year ago, I really had never truly failed. When I finally did, I handled it in the worst way possible. I pretty much did everything that the author tells you not to do. I ended up making the situation way worst than it was originally. When I listened to this book, it was like a wake up call. I only wished that I had come across it earlier.

Fairly Good

Good listen about failure and changing your perspective in relation to it. The focus of the book is failure is actually a good event. However, this is abridged and it shows. Many chapters are barely mentioned. It felt like you were rushed through the book.
