What would you do, right now, if you knew you couldn’t fail?

So today I thought I’d pose you an interesting question to muse on over the Easter weekend.  Just stop for a moment and think about it…….  What would you do, right now, if you knew, and I mean absolutely knew for certain, that you couldn’t and wouldn’t fail?  Come on there must be something?  Be honest.

Would you set up your own business?  Would you ask that guy or girl you’ve been looking at for months in the office out to dinner?  Would you apply for your dream job?  Would you start that diet that you’ve been promising for months to start ‘tomorrow’?  Would you give up smoking?  Would you move to a new country?  What is it you don’t dare do as you think you might fail?

So what’s been stopping you?  What’s been holding you back in the past? Have you decided at some point to believe you couldn’t do it?  Could you perhaps decide not to believe that instead? 

Remember the 11th presupposition of NLP?  There is only FEEDBACK!:  there is no failure, only feedback.  Feedback is an incredibly powerful tool to help you change your behaviour and achieve the results you want. 

“…the only failure is when you decide to give up.” (Serge Kahili King)
