Break fuild leaks will result in break failure. Most leaks are from one of the many components in the braking system, Locate the leak and replace the parts.

Obviously you need to locate the leak and repair it. If the fluid level drop too much or air finds it way into the system you will be in danger of having no brakes. Check the lines for corrosion and clean and check all connection in the system.

First thing is to narrow down the location of the leak. Verify if the leak is coming from one of the tires, and you can narrow the cause down to a leaky hose or a seal in the wheel's brake mechanisms. If the leak is more centrally located, it could be a line coming from the master cylinder or reservoir.
