How to unlock your full potential by losing your fear to fail

leave a comment

In my opinion, loosing the fear to fail is one of the most important attitudes we need to adopt to unlock the genius mind that we all have.

What would you attempt to do if you knew you could not fail?” is the bottom line of this¬†amazing talk by Regina Dugan, the director of DARPA, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, about people who do not decide their next step based on the fear to fail, but beside the fear to fail, they do it any way.

In this breathtaking talk she describes some of the extraordinary projects — a robotic hummingbird, a prosthetic arm controlled by thought, and, well, the internet — that her agency has created by not worrying that they might fail.

I personally would dedicate more thoughts to the actual use of the results of the research.¬† She could not give a straight answer to that question to TED’s director Chris Anderson.

It is absolutely worthwhile to watch.
