Are some people born to achieve anything they want while others struggle? Call them lucky, blessed, or possessors of the Midas touch. What is the real reason for their success? Is it family background, wealth, greater opportunities, high morals, an easy childhood? New York Times best-selling author John C. Maxwell has the answer: The difference between average people and achieving people is their perception of and response to failure. Most people are never prepared to deal with failure. Maxwell says that if you are like him, coming out of school, you feared it, misunderstood it, and ran away from it. But Maxwell has learned to make failure his friend, and he can teach you to do the same. "I want to help you learn how to confidently look the prospect of failure in the eye and move forward anyway," says Maxwell. "Because in life, the question is not if you will have problems, but how you are going to deal with them. Stop failing backward and start failing forward!"
ABOUT THE ORIGINAL BOOK The attitude that people have when they face failure is one of the traits that determine success in their lives and projects. What makes a winner triumph is to know how to turn failure into an opportunity to learn and develop a path towards identified goals. These are the central ideas developed by John C. Maxwell in this book. He presents a series of extremely educational and descriptive steps that will allow changing perspectives in the face of a failure, and then redirecting these efforts towards success. The fundamental thing in life is to learn to learn from obstacles, and then to overcome them. The characteristic style of the author and his practical content make this work a best seller in sales. Criticism is normal, and taking it well helps leaders and businessmen, as well as for anyone who aspires to a successful life.

Make Conflict Your Partner for Positive Change! Clinical psychologist and transformative communication expert Dr. Nate Regier believes that the biggest energy crisis facing our world is the misuse of conflict. Most organizations are terrified of conflict, seeing it as a sign of trouble. But conflict isn't the problem, says Regier. It's all about how we use the energy. When people misuse conflict energy, it becomes drama: they struggle against themselves or each other to feel justified about their negative behavior. The cost to companies, teams, and relationships is staggering. The alternative, says Regier, is compassionate accountability: struggling with others through conflict. Discover the Compassion Cycle, an elegant model for balancing empathy, care, and transparency with boundaries, goals, and standards. Provocative, illuminating, and highly practical, this book helps us avoid the casualties of conflict through openness, resourcefulness, and persistence.
