What If?

Every now and then, I write an article asking the big questions. You know, the REALLY big ones, the ones that make you stop and go, “hmmmm…”, the ones which have the power to shake someone up to the extent where they’ll make changes and end up being happier. It’s been at least a year since the last one of these articles, so I guess it’s time for another one! Here goes.

As always, the article won’t just make you think but also attempt to get you into action mode. I don’t believe in just pep talk, or “motivational” articles; these are lovely to nod along to, but are lacking in measurable effects on people’s lives. It’s always up to you, of course, but if you do realise there are adjustments you’d like to make, I’m going to point you in the direction of the next steps to take.

With that said, let’s ask the first question:


What would you do if you knew you couldn’t fail?

This one’s a classic, of course, but I don’t think many people realise its true power. It is not meant in the sense of a three-wishes fairy-tale or movie, where you’ll wish you could win the olympics in figure skating at 55 just because you can. No, this is aimed at something more serious. You could call it your inner core, your deepest life wish.

What WOULD you do?

Would you start that business? Go freelance as an artist/writer/dancer? Blow your savings on travelling the world? Do take some time to think about it; most of us have “reality” drilled into us so deeply, we can’t simply switch it off and truly contemplate what things would be like without the restrictions of possible failure, bankruptcy, injury, or worse.
