“What great thing would you attempt if you knew you could not fail?”

By: Robert H. Schuller

It’s an interesting question, isn’t it? You might be asking why I chose this photo for this blog. I thought it was appropriate. A spider spins a web. That web is both beautiful and strong. Now I strongly suspect that the spider is not questioning its ability to create that strong and beautiful web.

Are you questioning your ability to do something great for fear you will fail?

What great thing would you attempt if you knew you could not fail?

    Great American novel, here I come! Fear or no fear. But then my mind instantly starts wondering what exactly "great" entails and whether or not taking fear out of the equation is a good or a bad thing. Any attempt to accomplish anything brings many levels of success. I'm just really impatient and often overwhelmed by all the steps in between!

    I did enjoy how you connected the image to the quote. It really works.

    I think we all fear failure in some form or another. Sometimes when you have nothing to lose you find ourselves doing things we never dreams of. 🙂

    The spider is a great example and the interesting thing is if you get rid of the cobweb it will come back to spin another.
    Susan made a good point about when you have nothing to lose as the mind shifts.

    Wow,that is a huge question. I don't know how to even answer that. I know this may sound weird but without the chance of failure, what are you really proving to yourself. I would think it would be somewhat boring in life if we acheived everything we wanted. We would have nothing to work for.
