What Would You Do If You Knew You Couldn’t Fail
Recently I was hanging out in wine country at an outdoor Broadway concert under the stars, where I taped this video for you, from Jack London state park… a park that is being saved because one woman had a dream, and she wasn’t afraid to fail… or at least she didn’t let fear stop her.
What dream do you have that fear has been sitting on top of?
Look, I know that you, me, pretty much everyone on the planet has some dream they are sitting on.
Afraid we will FAIL
That people will laugh
That we will get rejected
That no one will come
That it will never work
Even though most of us never like to admit we are afraid.
We eek along
But really, wouldn’t it be better just to play full out? And really live?
Jack London sure thought so. I’m not sure how much you know about Jack London, but since I’ve been staying in Valley of the Moon in Sonoma Wine Country where Jack lived, wrote and farmed I’ve been learning a lot … and truth be told, I’ve been having quite a cosmic love affair with him.
Jack London pushed boundaries, failed a lot but kept going anyway…
So today in addition to my love letter I am sending you these inspiring words from Jack London…
Read them with the question in your mind, What Would I Do if I Could Not Fail
“I would rather be ashes than dust!
I would rather that my spark should burn out in a
brilliant blaze than it should be stifled by dry-rot.
I would rather be a superb meteor,
every atom of me in magnificent glow,
than a sleepy and permanent planet.
The function of man is to live, not to exist.
I shall not waste my days trying to prolong them. I shall use my time.”
― Jack London
