What would you do if you knew it was impossible to fail?
Please ponder that question and allow your thoughts to free-fall. What would your life look like if you left all the doors open instead of pulling them shut, one by one?
How would you be living your life today if you walked through those doors? If you knew that on the other side of that door, you could have whatever you dreamed or wanted, as long as you took the step and walked through it, rather than turn away and shut the door.
What is stopping you from walking through those doors? Fear of failure? Elbert Hubbard said it best when he stated “There is no failure except in not trying.”
So let me ask the question again; what would you do if you knew it was impossible to fail?
There is no failure – only steps toward self discovery. Failure is a euphemism for quitting or not trying – so it is impossible for you to fail if you walk through those doors.
Is it Fear that is stopping you from taking the leap through that door? It might be fear of failure, fear of change, fear of success.
American Novelist, Marilyn French, aptly said
“Fear is a question. What are you afraid of and why? Our fears are a treasure house of self knowledge if we explore them.”
I urge you to hold onto your goals and dreams, have faith in your abilities, and start running through those doors that represent each area of your life. Fling back the door, feel the adrenalin pumping through your veins, and excel in the fact that you took action to make your goals and dreams a reality.
Remember: failure isn’t really failure – just a learning curve, or self discovery; fear is an emotional response to something that appears real; and taking action – like walking through those doors – leads to change.
How is your life starting to look? Are your doors open or shut?
