Refusing to Fear Failure
The Regina Dugan Keynote Demonstrates the Importance of Pushing Yourself

By: Jaime Neely (Rockstar) May 1, 12

In this Regina Dugan keynote, the inventor and technology developer explains why embracing failure is so important. She begins her speech by discussing why every individual needs to have a nerd in his or her life. Instead of constantly fearing failure, Dugan argues that humans need to face it head on and embrace it. The refusal to fear failure is when the impossible becomes possible.

Providing a brief history of America’s journey to successfully fly a small plane, she demonstrates how scientists and engineers make new discoveries and accomplish great things through the act of doing. The fear of failure keeps individuals from attempting amazing things.   

Unless individuals are willing to test new waters and push themselves to embrace the unknown, they will likely experience little success.
