John Maxwell Quotes
The difference between average people and achieving people is their perception of and response to failure.
In life, the question is not if you will have problems, but how you are going to deal with your problems. Are you going to fail forward or backward?
People who fail forward are able to see errors or negative experiences as a regular part of life, learn from them, and then move on.
People who don't give up keep trying because they don't base their self-worth on their performance.
When achievers fail, they see it as a momentary event, not a lifelong epidemic. It's not personal. If you want to succeed, don't let any single incident color your view of yourself.
Don't wait until you feel positive to move forward. Act your way into feeling good.
There's nothing more useless than someone who comes to the end of the day and congratulates himself, saying, "Well, I made it through the day without screwing up."
To conquer fear, you have to feel the fear and take action anyway.
People naturally tend toward inertia. That's why self improvement is such a struggle. But that's also why adversity lies at the heart of every success. The process of achievement comes through repeated failures and the constant struggle to climb to a higher level.
To achieve your dreams, you must embrace adversity and make failure a regular part of your life. If you're not failing, you're probably not really moving forward.
If you are succeeding in everything you do, then you're probably not pushing yourself hard enough.
There are two kinds of people in this world: those who want to get things done, and those who don’t want to make mistakes.
