What would you do?

Saturday, June 22, 2013

What would you do?
Would you raise more children?
Would you go back to school?
Would you sky dive? bungee jump?
Would you try out for a professional sports team?
Would you apply for a great job?
Would you play the lottery?
Would you climb Mt Everest?
Would you run a marathon?
Would you ride in the Tour de France?
Would you be a dare devil?

The possibilties are endless, we could do almost anything - if we could not fail.

I have a couple of suggestions:

How about being a mentor to children, by teaching them the importance of exercise and living a healthy life. You would be great!

How about giving up those unhealthy habits - remember you would be successful!

How about planting a vegetable garden and sharing with those who have none.
It would be a stellar garden!

How about volunteering at the local homeless shelter - hospital - school, giving a smile or a hug to someone who may need one.

How about becoming an advocate for those who want to become fit, but need a partner for encouragement, as an exercise buddy as well as an educator.
As an expert in healthy living, you'd be wonderful!

If I could not fail, I would ride a bicycle across country, stopping along the way to see my Spark Friends.

If I could not fail, I would tour the world in my own plane!

If I could not fail, I would become an astronaut.

If I could not fail, I would run tons of marathons.

If I could not fail, I would become an actress, for a short time!

If I could not fail, I would be able to sell my business, and then I could have plenty of time to maintain a great vegetable garden and share with those who have needs. I would spend more time visiting the hospitals, the VA, the Schools and homeless shelters and give hugs and smiles all around. I would buddy up with those needing encouragement to get fit and get them moving and on the right path to good healthy habits. And I would help teach our children the healthy way to live. And I would enjoy myself tremendously!

If you could not fail ......what would you do?

    Great blog and good food for thought. I am not sure what I would do since the possibilities are endless but I will be thinking for a while what it is I would do if I could not fail.

    It is not the fear of failing that holds me back so much as not having as many hours in the day as I like. I love your to do list full of helping others more should be like you, a good blog and one to ponder on. I would run and rock climb and play the lottery so I could win big and then give 95percent away no 99 percent. hugs thanks

    I would love to be able to spend my days volunteering... reading to kids in libraries or hospitals, holding babies in nurseries, walking dogs, be one of those wise, wonderful grandmas (if my kids ever get around to thinking about settling down) as well as keeping active, bicycling, running and motorcycle road trips with my husband.

Now if I could just figure out how to do all that without a job, life would be good!

Excellent blog! Thanks for the opportunity to explore my head!

    Those are some great ideas. I might have to think and blog on this myself.

    emoticon I must say the latter half appealed to me most and perhaps the most important (at least to me) ................. Is what I or we could do for someone ELSE ........... I am so glad the kids are all grown, because I must say I do not want to go back ................. But at present, I am helping a co-worker change her diet and help with her new Blend-tec put together healthy varying smoothies and Green drinks ...... and it is fun to watch her make healthy changes. ........ emoticon Great thought and nice to share to spark one to think about possibilities and of course not failing! emoticon
