John C. Maxwell is back this month to discuss lessons from his book, Sometimes You Win, Sometimes You Learn. Everyone experiences failure, but the leadership expert tells former SUCCESS Publisher Hardy it isn’t failure that ruins us, but an inability to learn from it.


This interview appears on the SUCCESS Talks Collection, available in the November 2013 edition of SUCCESS magazine.

Favorite quote:

“We’re all one step away from stupid. It’s been a great lesson in humility [for] me. You can do something real quick to mess up your reputation or mess up all the good things. We all have times where we lose. The question is, ‘What did you learn’”

—John C. Maxwell
