Live Huge Links – 03.08.13

March 8, 2013

[Every Friday on the Life De-Constructed blog, I share a few favorite links from my virtual travels during the week. This is my way of giving love and a holla to the people who are living huge in their own lives…and transforming world.]

I wish I could promise you that your fears will never come to light.

I wish I could promise that you are safe from discomfort, that your journey will be easy and fruitful, that your loved ones will support you every step of that way, that your choices will not hurt anyone and that you’ll experience the perfect level of success for you in each moment.

I really wish I could, sweet pea.

But this is life.

6 months. 1 fear. Are you ready to lean in?

You can overcome any fear, whatever it may be, but to do that you need to do two things:

           1) Pick date that you must smash that fear by (so six months from you reading these words).

           2) Find someone to hold you accountable to overcoming your fear by that date.

Put Failure in its Place

As we practice innovating we are propelled up a personal learning curve — and we begin to accomplish our dreams. But implicit in daring to disrupt the status quo is daring to fail. As we learn by doing and do by learning something will eventually (and inevitably) not work. As former DARPA official Ken Gabriel said, “An important part of disruption is having the nerve to take on a really big failure.” At this critical juncture in the process of dreaming, we must decide how we will approach failure: Did I fail my way into a black hole? Or is failure a tool that will help me innovate more effectively?
