The author has suffered through multiple failures in his own life. He spent several years launching one failing business after another. He struggled to change his physique, despite doing all the right things as preached by the experts. For a long time, his social life barely existed because he struggled with crippling shyness.

Applying this mental shift will change your perception of what failure and success are and fine-tune your brain to automatically convert obstacles into wins. - 7 types of failure and how to handle them - including failure due to self-sabotage, fear, unrealistic expectations, self-licensing, and more.

Discover three fundamental techniques that will help you build mental resilience and determination. - 4 reasons to give up. Contrary to what many self-help authors say, sometimes it's better to give up than keep trying. Learn when and why it's better to drop your objective and dedicate your resources to another goal. - 10 empowering stories of people who faced insurmountable obstacles, yet turned their struggles into immense successes. Learn from real-world examples from all walks of life. Failure is a fact of life. You can get angry at it or befriend it and use it as a tool to change your life. The choice is yours.

You, too, can develop mental resilience and turn failures into successes!

Successful Mistake - Matthew Turner Summary

"Your shortest route to success is failure!" Imagine living in a world where you transform each one of your mistakes into a success story. Just consider what this would do to your business, bottom line, stress levels, growth, and happiness. After interviewing 163 of the world's finest business minds, Matthew Turner proposes you can, and in 'The Successful Mistake: How 163 of The World's Greatest Entrepreneurs Transform Failure Into Success' you'll learn how to bounce back from mistakes quicker and stronger than even those you admire have. Featuring the likes of Chris Brogan (New York Times bestselling author), Rachel Elnaugh (BBC Dragon's Den investor), Mitch Joel (Media Visionary and recipient of the prestigious Canada's Top 40 Under 40 award) and many other inspiring thought-leaders, The Successful Mistake uncovers their biggest mistakes and how they transformed these into successful legacies that continue to thrive. So if you've ever asked yourself what the most important business mistakes to avoid are, and the red flags you need to look out for, The Successful Mistake is for you because Matthew Turner has discovered a Seven Stage Process everyone goes through after making a mistake, but that successful entrepreneurs approach differently to most. All that's left to do is dive in and discover how your next (or even your current) failure can become your greatest success yet. "Every adversity, every failure, every heartache carries with it the seed of an equal or greater benefit" -- Napolean Hill from Think & Grow Rich "Too often, stories about entrepreneurship focus on the glamorous upside. Matthew Turner's book shows what it's really like in the trenches - the hard things people don't usually talk about. It's a valuable reminder that nothing comes easy, but anything is possible with effort." -- Dorie Clark, Author of Stand Out "The moment I heard about The Successful Mistake, I couldn't wait to be involved. There are not enough resources that focus on overcoming mistakes and failure, but it's a huge hurdle all entrepreneurs must tackle in order to be a successful business owner." -- Scott Oldford, Author of Connections That Count "Matthew Turner's The Successful Mistake is proof positive that the very things that trip us up are the same things that help us grow and develop. Bravo to Matthew on this important and inspiring read." -- Debbie Millman, Author Brand Thinking & Other Noble Pursuits "Anyone who tries anything often enough will fail. Worse still: the bigger, more important things you try, the more likely they will fail. This leaves you with two options: - Stop now because you'll never win, and your current [job/relationship/situation] isn't so bad anyway...or - Start now, because failure is inevitable, so better get used to it and get good at rebounding. If you choose option 2, check out Matthew Turner's book "The Successful Mistake" - it will help you through the hard times by showing you people who have been in your shoes, have failed often and epically, and yet have succeeded in spite of all the failure, pain, sweat, and tears (in many cases - because of it)." -- Tom Morkes, Author of Collaborate

The Jesus Principles - Joseph Mattera Summary

If your influence only lasts as long as you do, you failed. This book will help you reach your full potential, inspire greatness in your spouse, children, and friends, and leave a legacy that lasts beyond your lifetime. True influence should increase through the lives of those you have poured into, even after you pass away. Our greatest example of this is Jesus. His followers did greater works after He left them. Jesus never wrote a book or traveled outside of Israel, but He was able to use a band of eleven followers to create the largest, most influential movement the world has ever seen. Jesus had no servants, yet they called Him Master. He had no degree, yet they called Him Teacher. He had no medicines, yet they called Him Healer. He had no army, yet kings feared Him. He won no military battles, yet He conquered the world. He committed no crime, yet they crucified Him. He was buried in a tomb, yet He lives today. In The Jesus Principles, Joseph Mattera helps you unleash greatness in yourself, but even more importantly, in your circle of influence--your spouse, children, friends, and family. Following Jesus' example, you will be empowered to leave a legacy of helping others fulfill their own potential so that after you have passed, you are still speaking! Become part of a great cloud of witnesses who help to unleash human potential in one another. The four Gospels are not only compilations of important moral and spiritual sayings, but they also contain principles that can enable us to move from potential to fulfillment of purpose.

The Leadership Gap - Lolly Daskal Summary

Inc. magazine's most popular writer, executive coach Lolly Daskal explains how anyone can recognize and leverage the leadership gaps that stand in the way of greatness. When successful people begin to feel uncertain or challenged at work, the one thing they want to know most is why things are going wrong after they have gone right for so long. In The Leadership Gap, Lolly Daskal reveals the consequences highly driven, overachieving leaders face when they continue to rely on a skill set that has always worked for them, even when it is no longer effective. Over decades of advising and inspiring the most prominent chief executives in the world, Daskal has discerned that leaders fall into one of seven categories -- The Rebel, The Explorer, The Truth Teller, The Hero, The Inventor, The Navigator, and The Knight-- and have risen to their position relying on a specific set of values and traits. However, every leader reaches a point when their effectiveness is compromised by the gap hidden in those traits -- intuition becomes manipulation, for instance, or integrity becomes corruption. Based on a mix of modern philosophy, science, and her own vast well of business experience, Daskal offers a breakthrough perspective on leadership -- a new system for rethinking everything you know to reveal the path to becoming the kind of leader you truly want to be. In The Leadership Gap, Lolly Daskal not only confirms her stature as an exceptional business mind, but also reveals the insights and observations of one of our most important leadership experts -- a businesswoman known for providing trusted advice, actionable solutions, and provocative ideas to the world's top executives.

Failure - Stuart Firestein Summary

"The pursuit of science by professional scientists every day bears less and less resemblance to the perception of science by the general public. It is not the rule-based, methodical system for accumulating facts that dominates the public view. Rather it is the idiosyncratic, often bumbling search for understanding in mostly uncharted places. It is full of wrong turns, cul-de-sacs, mistaken identities, false findings, errors of fact and judgment-and the occasional remarkable success. The widespread but distorted view of science as infallible originates in an education system that teaches nothing but facts using very large, very frightening textbooks, and is spread by media that report on discoveries but almost never on process. It is further reinforced by politicians who pay for it and want to use it to determine policy and therefore want it right and, worst of all, sometimes by scientists who learn early on that talking too much about failures and not enough about successes can harm their careers. Failure, then, is a book that seeks to make science more appealing by exposing its faults. In this sequel to Ignorance, Stuart Firestein shows us that scientific enterprise is riddled with failures, and that this is not only necessary but good. Failure reveals how science got its start, when humans began to use a process-trial and error-as a kind of recipe that includes a hefty dose of failure. It gives the non-scientifically trained public an insider's view of how science is actually done, with the aim of making it accessible, comprehensible, and entertaining."--Publisher description.

Poached - Rachel Love Nuwer Summary

An intrepid investigation of the criminal world of wildlife trafficking--the poachers, the traders, and the customers--and of those fighting against it Journalist Rachel Nuwer plunges the reader into the underground of global wildlife trafficking, a topic she has been investigating for nearly a decade. Our insatiable demand for animals -- for jewelry, pets, medicine, meat, trophies, and fur -- is driving a worldwide poaching epidemic, threatening the continued existence of countless species. Illegal wildlife trade now ranks among the largest contraband industries in the world, yet compared to drug, arms, or human trafficking, the wildlife crisis has received scant attention and support, leaving it up to passionate individuals fighting on the ground to try to ensure that elephants, tigers, rhinos, and more are still around for future generations. As Reefer Madness (Schlosser) took us into the drug market, or Susan Orlean descended into the swampy obsessions of TheOrchid Thief, Nuwer--an award-winning science journalist with a background in ecology--takes readers on a narrative journey to the front lines of the trade: to killing fields in Africa, traditional medicine black markets in China, and wild meat restaurants in Vietnam. Through exhaustive first-hand reporting that took her to ten countries, Nuwer explores the forces currently driving demand for animals and their parts; the toll that demand is extracting on species across the planet; and the conservationists, rangers, and activists who believe it is not too late to stop the impending extinctions. More than a depressing list of statistics, Poached is the story of the people who believe this is a battle that can be won, that our animals are not beyond salvation.

Hospitalized with a freak case of tropical pneumonia, goaded by his wife telling him, “I don’t want to be a widow at forty-five,” and ashamed of a middle-aged body best described as “a python that swallowed a goat,” A.J. Jacobs felt compelled to change his ways and get healthy. And he didn’t want only to lose weight, or finish a triathlon, or lower his cholesterol. His ambitions were far greater: maximal health from head to toe. The task was epic. He consulted an army of experts— sleep consultants and sex clinicians, nutritionists and dermatologists. He subjected himself to dozens of different workouts—from Strollercize classes to Finger Fitness sessions, from bouldering with cavemen to a treadmill desk. And he took in a cartload of diets: raw foods, veganism, high protein, calorie restriction, extreme chewing, and dozens more. He bought gadgets and helmets, earphones and juicers. He poked and he pinched. He counted and he measured. The story of his transformation is not only brilliantly entertaining, but it just may be the healthiest book ever written. It will make you laugh until your sides split and endorphins flood your bloodstream. It will alter the contours of your brain, imprinting you with better habits of hygiene and diet. It will move you emotionally and get you moving physically in surprising ways. And it will give you occasion to reflect on the body’s many mysteries and the ultimate pursuit of health: a well-lived life.
