Publisher's Summary

Finding success through failures is not difficult. I have failed so many times at so many different things. My life is a chunk of failures, but guess what? Those failures lead to my successes also. I have experienced the downright worst of times and also have had some success. On our way to success, we have to understand that failure is a part of our progress and should be embraced, not avoided.
Instead of having fear, we need to embrace failure firmly, look for the signs and learn every time we face it. Failure is not a burden and offers incredible value if we know how to approach it. This book was written to help people embrace that concept. At the end of this audio book, you will have a firm understanding of failure and how to use it to your benefit.

Great Book and Beautifully Narrated

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

This is very good positive reading that can help us all in our efforts to improve our lives. It is too easy to quit and say "I knew it wouldn't work out" when trying something. This book reminds us that it's about process and not about instant success.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Failing Upwards?

The only thing that prevents success isn't the failures along the way, it's deciding to quit before we succeed.

Which scene was your favorite?

Rob Actis delivers an amazing thoughtful and natural read that makes the material seem like the only reasonable conclusion.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No of course not. I have a day job ya know.
