Failure is not a dirty word
Transform the way you think
We have all experienced failure in our life, and we will almost all experience it again. But the “f” word need not be feared. Instead, it should be embraced and seen as an opportunity to reflect, reassess and learn.
From the bestselling author of Choosing Happiness comes this thoughtprovoking, accessible and unbiased exploration of God, faith, spirituality and the nature of belief in the 21st century.
Filled with a range of insights, tips and interviews, Terry Robson’s Failure Is An Option is the ultimate guide to getting back on the horse and achieving your true potential.
The foundations of this fascinating discussion are built upon the idea that “the sacred” becomes meaningful through the ways we treat each other, and ourselves. This is practical, enlightening and hugely hopeful. Softcover •
