"What would you attempt to do if you knew you could not fail?"
-Dr. Robert Schuller
I ran across this quote a couple of days ago, and have been posing the question to everyone I know. Most of the answers I get have to do with pursuing a creative goal. One friend says she would paint, two others would sing, I would write a book.
When you are working full-time, it's easy to think that the only thing standing between you and your goal of (fill-in-the-blank), is the fact that you don't have time to pursue it because you are working.
I'm retired now; I don't have the excuse that I don't have time. I love this quote because it points out the reality, that what is keeping you from pursuing your dream isn't really lack of time, it's fear. Retirement will cure the time problem, but not the fear of failure.
What would you attempt to do if you knew you could not fail?
