With some fearless children of my own who have forged great paths for their lives, I find myself inspired at times to do a touch of the same. Most of the time, I just opt for security (I like having a steady paycheck and knowing how much it is going to be, and that it is going to pay the bills), but every once in awhile, I will think beyond. For those who do more than think...for those who do!, my hats off to you for your failures and your successes, for one is often the stepping stone to the other!
The National Bestselling book is filled with inspirational stories of fearlessness and the remarkable people who took bold steps to change the world. From a fourteen-year-old girl who created a nonprofit to safely dispose of prescription pills and drugs; to a man who started a bakery to employ the “unemployable” men and women just released from prison; to an immigrant celebrity chef who figured out how to serve millions of meals to hurricane victims in dire straits, Be Fearless weaves together real world stories from innovators and leaders that readers from all backgrounds can use to be inspired to bring about transformational changes at work, in life and in their communities.
When Jean Case, Chairman of the National Geographic Society and CEO of the Case Foundation, set out to investigate the core qualities of great changemakers, past and present, she found five surprising traits they all had in common. They weren’t wealth, privilege, or even genius. It was that all of these exceptional men and women chose to make a “big bet,” take bold risks, learn from their failures, reach beyond their bubbles, and let urgency conquer fear.
