#318 Chasing Failure: Real Life Lessons from One Man’s Shot at the NBA with Ryan Leak

"Chasing Failure" author Ryan Leak (Success Through Failure episode 318: Chasing Failure: Real Life Lessons from One Man’s Shot at the NBA)What would you do if you knew you couldn’t fail? How would it change your life?

Ryan Leak is an author, speaker, executive coach, and filmmaker. He is widely known as the groom who pulled off The Surprise Wedding where he proposed to his girlfriend and married her on the same day.

The number one question he still gets is, “What if she said no?”

It was a risk he was willing to take.

The video going viral led him to think about what others would do if they weren’t afraid of hearing “no” or of being met with failure.

Ryan realized that many people never pursue their hopes and dreams because they pre-calculate their own failure. They quit before they ever even try.

So, he asked himself: What would he want to do if he knew he could not fail? The answer was easy— he’d be in the NBA— and since the only way to know if that dream could be a reality was to try, that is exactly what he did.

In this episode, Ryan joins us to amplify why our show is called Success Through Failure. Listen in as we talk about procrastination, “perfection pressure,” how chasing failure will take you further than chasing success, and of course, his stories of success BECAUSE of failure. Tune in now!
