Publisher's Summary

A USA Today best seller!

Chasing Failure will help you remove every excuse for not pursuing the life you want to live, and that failure may just be the quickest way to success. Includes audiobook-exclusive behind-the-scenes content after each chapter!

We all have something we’d love to do, but often our fear of failure outweighs the potential of our destiny. But what if we found out that failure could actually help us succeed?

In Chasing Failure, Ryan Leak shares the science behind why people are afraid to fail, mixing in real-life stories and adding practical steps to help us intentionally chase failure in order to embrace the opportunities that come with it. Everyone fails in life — but if you’re willing to learn, improve, and grow because of your failures, you are already on the road to success.

As a motivational speaker, whether addressing people in corporations, churches, or youth events, Ryan has a message of hope: Failure is right around the corner, so be brave enough to chase it! The good life is on the other side, and as he says, “God promises to be with you always, even through the failure.”

Packed with wisdom, specific strategies, and a key takeaway included at the end of each chapter, Chasing Failure will help you:

  • Explore whether your dream idea is worth pursuing. 
  • Count the cost and create an action plan for your idea.
  • Learn how to effectively deal with criticism.
  • Understand how to embrace failure and learn how it can propel you.

By blending personal stories, get-up-and-go encouragement, and practical step-by-step advice, Ryan Leak will show you how chasing failure could be the quickest way to success.

A whole new perspective!

I didn’t even know I was really afraid of failure. This was eye opening and gave me good tools to start chasing failure.

Mindset Altering

Loved the content, the stories and the transparency. Found this book by "accident" and I'm so grateful! This is already one of those books where I can look back say it changed my life. Thanks to the author for chasing failure again. I'm motivated to chase failure too!

Ryan is amazing

This book is so good! You can listen to it a few times and learn so much from this. Ryan reads so well and make you feel like he is talking directly to you and not just an audience.

Not for Me

Started off alright and I had high hopes for this one but it’s not for me. Instead of feeling encouraged in striving for greatness I felt I was being ‘dragged back to reality’ which, it is what it is but many times when listening to a book I want to hear about overcoming and continuing to strive despite the trouble faced. I don’t really want to hear about how hard life can be and to be realistic and not even try in certain instances. May be great for some people but not something I enjoyed listening to, especially when trying to get into a productive mindset to start the day.

Great narration, motivating

As a recovering perfectionist, the concept of chasing failure really appeals to me. Leak is a lively and funny narrator. Christian-themed but not overwhelmingly so. Recommend for anyone looking to try new things and adopt a positive mindset.

Loved this book! Every time I listen to Ryan Leak, it's always the right message at the right time. He's my favorite speaker that inspires me in so many ways whether it's in church or listening to one of his podcasts. I can't wait for another new book to come out!

A Few Good Ideas

There were some good ideas in the book but not enough to really recommend it. Nicely narrated by the author.
