If you knew you couldn't fail....
What would you do?
I kinda live in fear of failure every day. Not because I'm failing (I actually have straight A's), but just the "what if this doesn't work out, it gets to be too much, if I can't handle the work load, if I won't be able to work, what if I graduate and then fail state boards, what if we have to move and I stay here to finish school and the hubby moves somewhere else until I'm done."
Yeah, all of that.
So I fear the "what ifs" in the back of my mind.
But what if you knew you couldn't fail?
I think small amounts of fear is good for us, but overly fearful can be quite stressful. I try to go day to day without the fear of failure, but it's hard sometimes.
So what would you do if you knew you couldn't fail?
I'd be an orthopedic doctor in sports medicine. That's what I'd do.
