Turning Mistakes Into Stepping Stones For Success
For many ADDers life is always about failing. We are fearful to try new hobbies, explore new relationships or start a new career because the risk of failure is too high. We get STUCK. At school we are not taught how to fail and yet this is how we learn.
Maxwell says ".... in life the question is not IF you will have problems, but how your are going to deal with them. Stop failing BACKWARD and start FAILING FORWARD."
John Maxwell is an American expert on Leadership and has written more than 20 books.
This book is an easy read with lots of personal stories about people he has worked with. It is practical and even for ADDers who are not fond of reading you can read it in bite size chunks. It is essential that we teach our children how to fail for success.
