What Would You Do if You Knew You Could Not Fail? Inspiring & Surprising Responses!

At the start of the New Year, we posed a question to our 30Seconds tribe: What would you do if you knew you could not fail? We already knew that our amazing community was talented and inspirational. But what could we do if we knew failure wasn’t an option? The responses were ambitious, exciting, inspiring and in some cases unexpected (ukulele flash mob!):

Everyone’s individual responses were inspiring and so, too, were their comments to each other:

  • "Wow can I relate to your answer. I try to remind myself I am not failing if I am doing what I love."
  • "Failure is actually HOW we get to our dream life … So accept that failure is PART of the dream you want and GO FOR IT!" 
  • "This is really awesome and inspiring."
  • "You can do it!"

How heartening to see not only everyone’s exciting dreams but also the support and encouragement they showed to one another. And who knows, maybe some of you will be motivated to pursue your dreams this year. If you do, we hope you’ll report back. We’d love to hear all about it. Just imagine what we could accomplish collectively!

Here’s to community and to dreaming big in 2018, 30Seconds tribe!

It may sound crazy but I am inspired by two things: First, I don't want to look back on my life and have regrets because I was too afraid to try something. The second is that I want to set an example to the young people in my family that they can be and do anything they want. I want to be an inspiration to them of what it is to truly live your life.
My tip would be to hold on to what it is that inspires you and don't let it go. Let it be your light when you feel you are off track. Find what feeds your soul and incorporate that into your life as much as possible. The positive energy will push you to stay on track to reach your goals. It feels so much better than not doing what you want.
