Then Mark zooms in, turns the spotlight on the listener, and encourages us to live out discipline on a daily basis.

In part two of this series, John Maxwell shares that possibility thinking is the mindset that allows energy to build. He describes the four P’s of energy: possibility thinking, passion, praise, and progress. Tapping into all of these resources creates an ongoing cycle of energy, results, and growth. Mark Cole and Richard Chancy ask the question, “What possibility is in your life, which with a little bit of thinking, could lead you to experiencing significance?” Mark shares the example of John entertaining the possibility of developing curriculum for youth just a few years ago, and now six million students are impacted by it around the world.

Failure is not Final

Failure is not Final

2019-08-1400:37:347

Failure is a natural part of life, but we can learn how to make the most out of those inevitable failures. In this episode, John Maxwell asks why some people allow failure to build them up and others allow it to derail them. John offers four observations about how people view failure, as well as four alternatives that will allow us to maximize our misses. Mark Cole shares how learning from failure has made him the man he is today, and provided the experience needed to lead at a higher level. Richard follows up with a reminder that we need to be intentional in thinking about failure, not only in the past, but also, in the future. Mark and Richard challenge us not to shy away from an opportunity because it has low odds. We may fail, but we can learn from that failure and turn it into tomorrow’s success. Our BONUS resource for this episode is the Failure Is Not Final Worksheet. You can access the worksheet by visiting MaxwellPodcast.com/Final and clicking “Download the Bonus Resource.”   References:  The Quick-Start Guide to Failing Forward Audio Series Failing Forward by John C.

I just started listening to your podcast. I am so Happy that I found this podcast. Today I realized you guys keep posting podcast that deal with exactly what I've been dealing with. Building Relationships and Price Tag of Leadership. I'm always trying to improve myself as a leader because I know I am not the perfect leader. I do have a question... How do you take criticism from someone that pushes all their work, meeting and anything else that requires them to stay late at work?
