Failing Forward

This is a phenomenal overview of the principals shared by John C. Maxwell in his book Failing Forward. I recently finished listening to the audiobook and was blown away. Maxwell shares some fundamental ideas of overcoming your fear of failure. I relished in the stories of well known individuals and their journeys to success. One of the most significant ideas I took away was to separate yourself from the act of the failure. You are not a failure, but failed at something. I truly believe people have a difficult time separating the two. If you have not read the book, I admonish you to either read it or listen to the audiobook. It is quite eye opening. Until then, enjoy the overview of the 15 steps to overcoming failure.
