It’s a step forward when teens possess the right tools to turn setbacks and losses into a gain of knowledge
Do you know a teenager? Maybe you’re a parent of a teen, or perhaps you work with young people. You probably want the best for them – for them to grow to be successful and resilient adults. And you’re always looking for ways to help them become all they can be.
We are excited to let you know about a new resource from John C. Maxwell. For the first time ever, he has created a book specifically for teens.
The book is Sometimes You Win, Sometimes You Learn for Teens, created just for teen readers, this book is designed to inspire and challenge them to see setbacks as opportunities – to grow, learn, and improve. Featuring new stories about teens and adults who overcame adversity and mistakes, like teenage Nobel Prize winner Malala Yousafzai and Iron Man actor Robert Downey, Jr., it also provides application exercises and journaling opportunities.
We believe that by developing the qualities below and practicing them in life, teens can learn to move forward from mistakes and use what they learn to grow and succeed:
