In the book Be Fearless, Jean Case demonstrates that big changes are more effective than tiny tweaks, and it encourages us to try new things. The staff at her foundation studied the lives of many game changers to find parallels in their qualities and habits. They realized that, contrary to popular belief, being a pioneer does not require wealth or privilege. Instead, innovators share a number of characteristics. They step outside of their comfort zone to make bold promises that have a high chance of failing, then work hard to keep those promises. They learn from their mistakes and try again if they don't succeed the first time.
To make life better for everyone, make a radical change and take tremendous risks. Courageous goals assist us in overcoming the fear that prevents us from achieving greatness. You capture people's attention and take responsibility for what you're offering by declaring you're going to beat the odds. Giving up is no longer an option once you've made your commitment. Your dedication inspires you to put in long hours and find answers to issues.
If you want to find fresh answers, challenge assumptions and look around corners. You must defy assumptions in order to make huge investments. Changemakers don't take "that's just the way it is" as a response; instead, they commit to looking ahead to see what the future holds. Elon Musk, a visionary entrepreneur who promised to inhabit Mars by 2030 in 2010, is one such example. Despite the fact that his critics claimed it was unachievable given today's technology, Musk continued to make such claims. Through his SpaceX enterprise, he now has detailed blueprints for the required spaceship and reusable rockets.
Embrace the unfamiliar and unexpected by stepping outside of your comfort zone and reaching beyond your bubble. You can get along just fine in your comfort zone, but if you want to be great, you must push yourself to new heights. Nobody has ever done anything game-changing while being at ease. It is critical to look outside of our own bubble. Traveling to lesser-known locations, contemplating novel alliances, and incorporating people from various backgrounds in our work all provide us with new ideas and tools to help us change the game in our industry.
Jean Case is an outspoken supporter of social responsibility and environmental stewardship. She encourages us to take a revolutionary attitude and get active in making a worldwide change for everyone in Be Fearless. She inspires us to be bold enough to make an impact on the world by telling compelling tales about people who have done just that.
