QotD: If I Had Guaranteed Success…

What would you attempt to do if you knew you could never fail?
Submitted by BeckyPink.

Hmm… this is interesting. I’m one of those people who get very cranky if I can’t do something perfectly the first time. However, if I always did everything perfectly the first time, there wouldn’t be a whole lot of challenge would there? After I get over my initial crankiness when I’ve goofed something, I get very focused and practice and try again until I get it right. Something tells me that a success you’ve earned via real effort has a lot more value than a success that came due to never being able to fail. Isn’t that how people start taking things for granted and develop nasty senses of entitlement?

How can you improve yourself if you never fail at anything?
