Fear of Failure

A great insight into the Fear of Failure from Milton Glaser, a graphic designer in the US. In this video he talks about what it is to fear failure and how by embracing failure we can improve ourselves. Milton may look a bit creepy but give the video a chance and you might find him an inspiring chap! Quite inspiring words, and spoke with a twinkle in his eye, like he’s letting you in on a secret that should be well-known.

  1. Lol, a bit creepy? you can say that again ๐Ÿ˜‰ however, I’d rather hear about failure from someone who looks like this than a Brad Pitt lookalike (although obviously I realize being beautiful doesn’t make you immune to failure, and I guess Brad is the perfect example ;-)) – Thanks for the link, very welcomed at this point in my life (turning point type of point) ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. He does look a bit dishevelled and ancient doesn’t he! From what I’ve read he’s been a graphic designer and lecturer (I think) on design and other related areas for a very long time. Good advice though, I thought!

  2. I like what he says about Picasso: once he’d learned something he would abandon it and as a result his art became extraordinary works. Maybe “like” is not the right word because it is not easy to struggle while you try to succeed and failure certainly doesn’t feel warm and fuzzy, but the principle can be quite powerful if we can wrap our minds around it – to not be afraid of failure but to see it as an opportunity to learn something new and do whatever we do (or are) better. Everyone wants that result, right? And sometimes overcoming failure is the only path to greater success. Yes, inspirational indeed! And I like the way he is so REAL. He says things that many think but too many are afraid to say out loud to others; like the concept of the white elephant in a room.
