    14. 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 as [...]


    15. Excellent book, the only reason not 5 stars is because the writing style is simple, but a simple writing style is effective for what Maxwell is trying to accomplish He basically convinced me well that mistakes and failures are necessary for creating a successful life, and to not allow them to stop me in my tracks Also to not avoid avoid taking risks because of fear of failure Many interesting stories of successful people and all the times they failed and persevered My only suggestion would be to [...]


    16. John Maxwell is my guy I basically raised myself upon his literature His books are so practical and empowering and this one is nothing short of same amazing quality Failing Forward is a John C Maxwell classic to me and I still go back time to time and reference it I ve even seen several mainstream duplications by authors Personally this book was a slow read for myself but I appreciated so many of the points and perspective As an entrepreneur I take business failures so personal This was a timely [...]


    17. This is the type of book that you have to read in little doses to get the full effect The basics of this book is how we handle failure Within six chapters of the book I can say that it has impacted my life The thing that stood out was the fact that how we handle failure is basically up to us Failure is an inside job, so is success It s what happens on the inside, inside of us that determines if we fail forward or backward The inside, our inner being and how we really look at life How we handle f [...]


    18. I have started my interest on John Maxwell s books after I read his 17 Indisputable Laws of Teamwork I think his writing approach was well explained in a manner that it could be cognizable not only by professionals but by students too I rated this work with four stars because I really like his comprehensiveness in writing empowered by situational experiences It proves that the laws here are not only perceivable but rather doable I have never read any kind of books yet about success and failures [...]


    19. This is my first exposure to John Maxwell and is one of the best self improvement books I have ever come across Author Maxwelll reminds me a lot of Dale Carnegie in the sense that his simple and profound points of wisdom are peppered with inspirational side stories and common sense advice I didn t feel preached to at all in this book which was refreshing The book s premise is that life is full of mistakes, and the goal is to turn them into positives.I read this book at a difficult time in my lif [...]


    20. I thoroughly enjoyed this book It really helped me to see the bigger picture As a previous perfectionist, I found it difficult to move on from my mistakes since I was very detail oriented The cost of a mistake seemed to be so daunting on my both my physical and mental health All these years of working and making mistakes, it really took a toll on my body Its principles really helped me to move on from my mistakes and not to take it so personally I still review the book from day to day It s just [...]


    21. Failing Forward is an excellent book for those who want to make a positive change in their lives, whether it be for business or personal reasons.It s also fantastic for those who already know that failure is really just a learning experience on the way to massive success, but may need a reminder once in awhile.Do yourself a favor and read this book if you want to turn your life around or even if you just want to turn your small successes into huge, life changing, incredible successes
