As I've said before, a book can never solve your problems, but sometimes a book can give you just the right ingredient you need in order to help yourself. Helping yourself might be finding peace, acceptance, perspective, getting the right kind of literary pep talk, or realizing that you are not the only person to have ever gone through whatever it is you're experiencing. Books CAN help you heal.
Failing Forward has helped me get my life, experiences and failure(s) into perspective. I hate to use corny line, but in my lingering battle to decide whether I was going to be powerful or pitiful…Failing Forward helped nudge me into the decision to stand up from my pitiful place on the floor and strive to be powerful.
The fresh look on failure as provided by Maxwell was one that I've never seen before. He's forthright in the presentation of the evidence of why it benefits you to fail forward. I know I'll be reading this book again a bit more closely as to understand in fine details of how not to be trapped by failure. This book should be required reading in just about any educational setting as the concepts that are presented are so applicable to modern life today. You're reading this review for a reason. Buy the book in whatever format you desire, but read it with an open mind and prepare to be enlightened.
We have all heard the cliches before. The ones like, "we learn from our mistakes", etc. Yet, do you have an action plan in place for truly learning and moving forward? I didn't, but I do now. "Failing Forward" is not a collection of simple-minded cliches that only people in woo-woo land will relate to. "Failing Forward" is a fantastic read, which if you have the courage to admit your own failures in Life...and you have them...then this book will assist you focus on the benefits of failures, moving along a path to ultimate success in your endeavors. Just remember this...you must be willing to accept responsibility for your own actions and take ownership of your failures...meaning, stop blaming others. If you insist on partying it up at the local "Look at what Life has done to me" ale house, then don't bother reading this book, you are too weak to handle reality. On the other hand, if you wish to hone your skills in the realm of taking a Leadership role in your own path of Life, then buy this book...it is a must read.
I'm giving this book 5 stars because of the actions I am taking along my Life path from reading "Failing Forward"...yeah, it has had a sustained impact. Oh, and I'm giving the Mentor who told me to read the book five stars as well. Good call, Chris.
