Failure. It’s a concept that most people hate, and everyone tries to avoid it in their personal and professional lives. While most of us strive for success, we often do our best to circumvent any situation or outcome that could be seen as us failing at those attempts toward success.
But what if we did the opposite? What if we embraced failure instead of avoiding it? This is the premise of Ryan Leak’s book, Chasing Failure.
Leak presents to us that famous people many see as “overnight successes” actually struggled and grew through a series of failures that made them the person we know today. He makes it clear that the only real pathway to true success is filled with failures. Failure can make us better people and better at ultimately achieving our goals.
Chasing failure is an excellent idea for a New Year’s resolution since it encourages you to go for your goals even if there is the possibility of failure at the start. You’ll never know what you can achieve until you embark on the journey toward your goal, so why not take the opportunity to chase after it? Even if you stumble and fall on the first few tries, Leak explains that those missteps and failures contain valuable lessons that you can use to recalibrate and continue your journey toward your ultimate goal.
The author, Ryan Leak, also uses his personal stories about chasing failure when he tried out for the NBA. The methods he used, the failures he encountered, and the lessons he learned helped make him a better person and more courageous when setting out to achieve future goals.
Chasing Failure is a great book, a quick read. It is filled with encouragement for anyone afraid of the looming specter of failure. Leak’s solution is to laugh in failure’s face and not quit if it happens. Only by failing can one find the strength to succeed.
