The title of this post is one of my favorite quotes. I always use it as an inspiration for my life and as motivation to keep going to accomplish the many dreams that I have.
This quote makes me think of the Randy Pausch- the now famous college professor known for “The Last Lecture”, which has inspired many people across the country and the world. I bought the book for myself, and it’s one of my favorites. I gifted it to my mother for Mother’s Day, and she loves it. I recommended it to a friend, and they gifted it to their mother also. Seriously, if you haven’t read it, you should. There’s no hype- it’s really that good.
But really- if you KNEW that failure wasn’t an option- what you attempt to do? I believe that too many of us are caught up in the fear of failure to even put forth a halfhearted attempt at living our dreams. Which is, pretty sad. I also believe that there is something that we are each born to do, that the world is waiting for us to live and accomplish our dreams, so that we can not only inspire others, but leave the world we live in a little better than how it found us.
So- what would you attempt to do?
