This Month’s Book: John Maxwell’s “Sometimes You Win, Sometimes You Learn”

#1 New York Times bestselling author John C. Maxwell believes that any setback, whether professional or personal, can be turned into a step forward when you possess the right tools to turn a loss into a gain. Drawing on nearly fifty years of leadership experience, Dr. Maxwell provides a roadmap for winning by examining the eleven elements that constitute the DNA of learners who succeed in the face of problems, failure, and losses.

1. Humility – The Spirit of Learning
2. Reality – The Foundation of Learning
3. Responsibility – The First Step of Learning
4. Improvement – The Focus of Learning
5. Hope – The Motivation of Learning
6. Teachability – The Pathway of Learning
7. Adversity – The Catalyst of Learning
8. Problems – The Opportunities of Learning
9. Bad Experiences – The Perspective for Learning
10. Change – The Price of Learning
11. Maturity – The Value of Learning

Learning is not easy during down times, it takes discipline to do the right thing when something goes wrong. As John Maxwell often points out–experience isn’t the best teacher; evaluated experience is.


“The first time I met John Maxwell, I could tell that he and I shared the same values. He cares about people and he wants to help them. One of the best ways to do that is to teach people how to overcome failure and adversity. That ability turned my life around. If you read Sometimes You Win–Sometimes You Learn, you will learn that valuable skill. I highly recommend this book.” (Ben Carson, M.D., pediatric neurosurgeon and NYT bestselling author of America the Beautiful and Gifted Hands, on Sometimes You Win–Sometimes You Learn)

Millions of individuals–myself included–have been inspired by the words and works of John Maxwell. Now, in The 15 Invaluable Laws of Growth, John again shares his remarkable insights and wisdom into how each of us can reach our full potential and make a positive difference in the lives of others. (Elizabeth Dole, former U.S. Cabinet Secretary, Senator and President of the American Red Cross, on The 15 Invaluable Laws of Growth )

I salute John Maxwell for being a pioneer for leadership throughout the world. In his most recent book, he has successfully distilled the 15 most invaluable laws for personal growth. To read this book is to receive the essence of John’s expertise, which will help you take your personal success to the next level.
(Stedman Graham, speaker, author and entrepreneur, on The 15 Invaluable Laws of Growth)

John has been a mentor and teacher for me for many years and what I love most about him is that he has pushed and helped me personally go through The 5 Levels of Leadership!
(Kevin Turner, COO, Microsoft, on The 5 Levels of Leadership)

John Maxwell’s books have been required reading for my leadership team for years. I can’t think of anyone better at distilling decades of leadership experience into practical, approachable principles that anyone can apply at any level of leadership.
