8 Brave Tips To Help You Try, Fail and Try and Again

  1. Take a Risk and Don’t Look Back. When Laine had to decide and relocate in only 3 weeks she embraced the challenge and didn’t regret her decision.  What are you on the fence about right now that in 10 minutes, 10 weeks or 10 years you will look back and wish “if only”?
  2. “Fail Fast and Fail Often”. The biggest hurdle is the fear of failure that keeps most of us from making that leap of faith. As soon as you embrace failure, opportunities will present themselves in ways you hadn’t imagined.

“Success is not final.  Failure is not fatal.  It is the courage to continue that counts.”  Winston Churchill.  Laine likes this quote because in every failure you learn.

  1. Your Decisions Make Big Impressions. Laine shares the personal story of how she inspired her niece to see that nothing should hold her back. 
  2. Change Will Happen-Focus on The Positive. Avoid only looking at things that are out of your control.  Ask yourself “what if I continue to do amazing work” and keep that at the center when things are in flux.
  3. How You React to Situations Defines Who You Are. Staying positive during difficult challenges makes a difference.
  4. Surround Yourself With Encouraging Leaders. A good leader knows how to motivate people, and they understand leadership includes “all of us”.  They share in successes and failures to help people feel free to innovate.
  5. Share Your Passion.  Express why making a difference is so important for others and express it to your colleagues, friends, family and network. 
  6. Try Laine’s power phrase: “You never know unless you try”.

Favorite Book:  Creative Confidence-it reminds us that as kids we weren’t afraid to express our ideas.  As we become adults, people start having a fear about ideas.  The book helps guide everyone to go back to the basics. 

Last words of advice:  “Face your fears and unleash your creativity.”- Laine Mann
