What Would I Do If I Knew I Could Not Fail? Here's My Unexpected Response...

What would I do if I knew I wouldn’t fail? My response to that question was unexpected: “To bring people together in community and to inspire each other to live the life we’ve imagined, to make those connections collectively and to support each other on our way.”

Failure is always an option, and that mindset doesn’t scare me because I know it is just that – a mindset. Based on the typical model, failure is the opposite of success, but when I “fail,” I discover that which I am not and this always leads me to a better understanding about who I am.

To attain my vision, I realize that I don’t even know where to begin, but I follow my inner voice, which I trust is paying attention and I am literally just throwing out an image before me. My heart is clear. My nature and role is often to INSPIRE others and to spiritually see and I have a need to express this energy and to share my gifts.

When I ask a question and I remain curious and stay open, the universe always rushes in with people and situations to answer that question as a response and to help me define what the best next step is. My idea is to support this process; I think it would be special to offer this to each other in community and to meet each other’s needs. There are no experts or fees for a service. The only goal is to connect to life more meaningfully with each other and the world. To live a wish-fulfilled life and to define what that means both personally and in community.

The norm is to support each other’s unique vision and to make those connections that will strengthen and support each other’s goals. We are enough already, there is NO self-help or expert advice to seek. I envision a structure that is similar to a barter system, we bring what we have to offer, and the possibilities are endless. What if we can change the world together?

To live the life you’ve imagined is an unending goal, there is no arrival or destination, rather a collective energy to come together in community more meaningfully. No “I” in TEAM, or competition, only I am the expert on my heart’s desires and only we can willfully support those visions for one another to create something far grander than what we can do alone. Who knows where it might take us, what if within our own communities we can create a more meaningful world and not just for ourselves, but for us all.

If you support my vision, I’d love to know what this means to you. A journey of a thousand miles does begin with a single step.

Wow, Stephanie Cannoe ! This is powerful and moving. Your vision resonates with me strongly. My nature is that of a community builder. My greatest desire is to inspire others and make a positive difference in the world. That's what I'm trying to achieve here at 30Seconds, but in a slightly different way than you describe. I think there's a lot we can do to support your vision. I would love to give you space here to explore and create and manifest your vision. I will think about this and maybe my amazing team members will also have ideas. Thank you for all you share with us, and I look forward to supporting you, however this beautiful vision of yours evolves! Ann Marie Gardinier Halstead Donna John Nicole DeAvilla Gail Harris

Stephanie Cannoe This is amazing as usual. Elisa All Schmitz 30Seconds We didn’t get a chance to take a selfie but we wanted you to know that we got together this weekend IN REAL LIFE! Stephanie came to my house and we had wonderful evening plans. She stayed over and went home the following morning. It was just wonderful being together. And it never would have happened without 30 Seconds. 🌈❤️
Stephanie Cannoe

Elisa All Schmitz 30Seconds It really is quite extraordinary, right here in this moment. The Universe works in mysterious ways and I am in constant awe. The awareness of the mystery is where's at for me and changes life from humdrum to momentous. Thanks for being the conduit for Stephanie Cannoe and me to meet. There is more going on here than the three of us could imagine. Let's watch and see what happens. Cheers!
Stephanie Cannoe
Yes! That would be great. And I need to order a t-shirt. On my phone it wasn't letting me.
Jen Imbaro
I admire your vision of a collective energy and supportive community. I have had some amazing experiences with online communities of people with like situations, and have made some of my best "in real life" friends through my years blogging about my experiences with infertility. Now, we're 5+ years into our motherhood journeys, and we continue to share and support each other beyond just our parenting trials and tribulations. I look forward to seeing what you might come up with in this space.
Stephanie Cannoe
Thank you Jen! I am certain about the energy and spirit of what I hope to create. I am intrigued to see where this might lead me next.
Elisa Schmitz
I’m hopeful that what we are discussing offline is the start of what was sparked here, Stephanie Cannoe ! I’m beyond excited. And please do order your tribe shirt. We’re shipping some this week! Thank you!!
Stephanie Cannoe
Elisa All Schmitz 30Seconds I am so glad I put it out there and thrilled at the prospect of what we can create! I have had issues on my phone ordering from the rewards store, but I will try again! I do want a t-shirt!! So much gratitude to you. Thank you for your encouragement, inspiration and support. I couldn't do this without you. Literally. 😘
Elisa Schmitz
Thank you, Stephanie Cannoe . Means so very much. I’m sorry about the store not working on your phone. If you can try from a computer, LMK if that works. Otherwise just shoot me an email with preferred size and address and I will make sure you get one!! ❤️
