  5. Fear of failure prevails like a virus
    The result is…
    No timely
    action for
    problems
    Discouraged
    bold actions
    and new starts
    Massive
    sufferings
    and stigmas

  6. Let’s re-shape our culture for failure
    The one that accepts fear of failure, and understands it as a learning
    experience and a natural part of starting anything new or bold.

  8. Two years ago in Finland, we started our first The Day for Failure to celebrate
    failure and promote understanding of failure as a learning experience and
    a natural part of starting anything new or bold.
    With a vision to eventually make October 13th a national flag-raising day, we’ve
    interviewed most well-known figures and gathered people together to share their
    failure stories and lessons learned.
    To our surprise, extensive media coverage and attention from public followed.
    Last year, we saw 80,000+ views for our videos, 300+ personal failure stories
    shared, as well as 35+ articles covered by major newspapers. Given a small
    population of Finland, this was no small number.
    Since then, we came to truly believe in our power
    to make the difference and aspire to amplify our
    impact on a global scale.
