As I was chowing down on an entire bag of Dove Milk Chocolates, I read every single quote typed up on the foil.
Little thoughts, and mantras that women have submitted to the company that inspire them. Usually I think they are cheesy and very "fortune cookie" but one I read today made me really think.
"What would you do if you could not fail?"
WOW. It got me to think how many things in life we hold back from doing because we are afraid of failure and rejection. Everything from taking our first steps as infants to asking our crush out, to pushing a new idea to a business partner. Everything we do involves making choices and from what I witness it has become so very easy to take the less challenging road and stick with what we know.
"We fear change"
I know personally, I have let fear lead my life. I never asked for a raise or promotion at work because I was happy and complacent with where I was at. In my business I'm finding myself struggling to network and market because I am afraid that people will see me as a goof.
If I could do anything and not fail it would be something along the lines of saying hello to every single person in a busy place; mall, airport, college lecture even.
SO... what would you do if you could not fail?? I would love to hear what you are holding back from doing, or have held back from doing in the past due to a "fear" of failure or rejection.
