Practice failing more

By November 30, 2011 No Comments

Fear of failure has been the death of so many great dreams. But what if you could remove fear from your pursuit of happiness? What would be the one thing you would change about your life? Would you do it?

I was inspired watching ‘Failure Club‘, a documentary series following people pursuing their dreams in the full knowledge that by any common yardstick, they were doomed to fail. The Failure Club is all about embracing that failure and pursuing seemingly impossible goals regardless, for the journey’s sake. From the outset, failure is not only a highly probable outcome, it is the desired outcome. It’s all about recognising that actually failure isn’t all that bad. Only through embracing the reality of failure can its’ societal stigmas be stripped away and replaced with an inspirational alternative.

The Failure Club process reconstructs conventional ‘failure’ as acceptable and even fun and helps people realise that life’s limitations are arbitrary, self-imposed, and based on fear. And when we overcome that fear, we blow away our self-inflicted limits, and we will each achieve results that appear miraculous.

It’s interesting stuff and a great challenge to all of us – check it out on Yahoo Screen.
