CHASING FAILURE: What Our Goals Require Most is the Bravery to Fail
Answer this question: What would you do if you knew you could not fail? Many have heard the idea of failing forward fast, meaning that you shouldn't sit too long, licking your wounds and contemplating your failure. But the problem with this idea is that it is still rooted in some negative bias about the experience. On the other hand, Chasing Failure is all about having a vision for a dream, a goal, a mission, and knowing that the road will be paved with failure, but still proceeding with conviction and passion. This is what sets those who succeed beyond measure, from those who simply exist. Most people would much rather acquiesce to the status quo because it’s a whole lot safer than taking a chance on something that could fail. The fear of failure will keep you inside the box, stall innovation, and make sure you hesitate anytime you even think about taking a risk that could help you achieve goals beyond your wildest dreams. As leadership expert Ryan Leak shares, you don’t actually have to get over the fear. Just do it scared and take really good notes. When you’re Chasing Failure, you’re either going to win or you’re going to learn. Hopefully, both will happen. But you have to start moving right now, and Ryan shares the blueprint for success by giving you an approach to see what the predictable failures might be so you can circumvent those more easily, or deal with them more effectively when they arise. Either way, Ryan is here to help you fail toward your greatest success.
SELF-LEADERSHIP: 7 Tools to Help You Lead Yourself Better & Inspire Others
Have you ever wondered, “What’s it like for people to be led by me?” When someone is hired to be a leader in an organization, what often doesn’t come with the gig is a leader… for the leader. One of the biggest hurdles leaders face is not actually leading people but leading themselves. Most leaders are often given titles with very little vision. They’re often given expectations with very little direction. The old saying rings true. It’s lonely at the top. Leaders desperately need a go-to strategy and system they can rely on when they feel like they’ve got no one in their corner to guide them.
