What If You Knew Failure Was Impossible
Imagine you've always wanted to be a Music Star but the only little problem is that you couldn't sing to save your life. And all you had going for you was a strong drive and passion. If you could afford it, wouldn't you do all it took; voice coaching, the best producers, radical publicity and even auto tunes (yes, that's all we hear now) to make it happen?
Then again imagine, you didn't even need to do all that because failure was not possible. Wouldn't your songs (awful or not) be on every lip?
For me, if I knew I could never fail, hmmn ... I would start getting ready to pick a candidacy form for the presidency by 2015. Of course that's after I've had dinner with America's President Obama and had that long awaited trip to the Seychelles. And yes, visiting the moon (what's there anyway?)
Here's my point, for all of you who have real talents, skills or abilities, add real passion to it, do something about it. Afterall, it's in really trying that you'll discover if it's possible or not, right? Think back on a time when you had to succeed because the stakes were so high and somehow you achieved, what, at the beginning, seemed impossible.
So when next you are asked to be more realistic, ask yourself if there's any truth to it but better still, ask - what if failure was impossible?
