What would you do if you know you couldn't fail?


What would you do if you know you couldn't fail?

How many times have we postponed things we wanted to do in our lives? Were those postponements due to us looking for an excuse to not venture forward? Or did life really happen and there was no way we could make it work? Be honest with yourself. How bad do you want it?

This weekend one year ago was a pivotal point in my life. I decided to walk away from my full time paying day job with fully paid benefits to go out on my own. Looking back now, I should of done it a lot sooner. I took a true leap of faith mentally and set the date to tell my boss.

Sometimes we need to take those leaps of faith for us to see how serious we can commit to something we believe in. I had so much stacked against me but yet it was time. I had talked to myself mentally for almost a year deciding on how to make it work. I didn't want to fail. But as life had it, it wouldn't let me fail. It proved to me time and time again to do this.

This weekend, one year ago, my husband and I went to an event. I talked to a friend of mine (during some down time) who knew my fears. As her and I talked it through, it became clearer and clearer what I needed to do. She helped me clean away those cobwebs of fear and see the bigger picture. Thank goodness for friends.

I can giggle at this now. I decided to fill my life with my passion. How many people can say they did this? How many can give it all up and take that leap of faith and just go for it? As scared as I was to do it, I was just as scared to tell my husband who supports and loves me. He understood. He knew I had to do this and stood behind me. We talked out an exit plan and I executed it with perfect timing....until the end ......and I changed it up. LOL - you have to know me.

We'll chat about that leap in another blog.

What would you do if you know you couldn't fail? Would you still do it if you could potentially fall?
