What would you do if you knew you couldn’t fail? Take a moment to consider a situation or goal in your life. Really allow yourself to feel what it would be like right now if you were in that situation. The more vivid you can make it, the better.
What are the sensations in your body? What are the emotions it brings up? Can you imagine a positive outcome? If not, what are the challenges or obstacles that get in the way? Just note each of these without any judgment about them. This is just for your information.
How Would You Approach the Situation?
Now imagine for a moment, that you knew, beyond a shadow of a doubt you couldn’t fail. Whatever it was you wanted, your goal or the outcome to a certain situation, would be a guaranteed win for you. How would you approach this situation differently? Would you put more time into it? Would you keep going, even if you came up against blocks or delays? Would you find yourself more confident and determined? How do you feel now about the emotions or challenges you noticed before when you imagined the goal or situation?
When we come from the position of knowing we won’t fail, we have more confidence and keep going until we accomplish what it is we’re after. We aren’t stopped by our own judgments or criticisms. We don’t allow other people’s opinions to change our course of action. We just keep going with the faith we’ll succeed.
How Thoughts of Succeeding Help?
When I began to adopt this way of thinking, I noticed I didn’t let setbacks stop me. I even had more energy and enthusiasm for what it was I was tackling. I also noticed something else.
I began to look at everything in my life, even the small tasks throughout the day, as if I would succeed.
In regards to succeeding, whatever the outcome is, it does in fact, become a success. Sometimes you won’t get exactly what it was you were going for. But what you will find, is that it’s the perfect outcome to that situation. If you stay open, it will lead you to an even better situation than you had imagined. If you have the courage to keep going, and to remain open-minded, you’ll see that you’re guided by circumstances to even better results.
Sometimes the road forks off to the left. If you have the confidence that you won’t fail, you’re more willing to follow that fork in the road and see exactly where it leads. It becomes an exciting adventure. I encourage you to begin opening to what you’ve always dreamt of doing and approach it with the knowledge that you can’t fail. Not getting the results we want isn’t a failure. It’s information that we need to possibly take a different direction.
Stay open and excited about life. And believe you can’t fail.
