Fandango’s Provocative Question #24

FPQWelcome once again to Fandango’s Provocative Question. Each week I will pose what I think is a provocative question for your consideration. By provocative, I don’t mean a question that will cause annoyance or anger. Nor do I mean a question intended to arouse sexual desire or interest.

What I do mean is a question that is likely to get you to think, to be creative, and to provoke a response. Hopefully a positive response.

The fear of failing can be immobilizing. It can cause you to do nothing. Most people, at some point in their lives, have probably experienced this fear of failure. As a result, they may resist taking a chance on doing something that might otherwise have led to great success.

So my provocative question is this:

“Have you ever been so afraid of failing at something that you decided not to try it at all? What’s one thing would you attempt to do if you knew you could not fail?”

If you choose to participate, write a post with your response to the question. Once you are done, tag your post with #FPQ and create a pingback to this post if you are on WordPress. Or you can simply include a link to your post in the comments.

And most important, have fun.

The issue with pingbacks not showing up seems to have been resolved, but you might check to confirm that your pingback is there. If not, please manually add your link in the comments.

    I’d run for a national office…and then let the others know exactly what i think of them……and make danged sure Roe v Wade stayed the law of the land. I’d probably push HARD for impeachment of the cheeto, pence and all the little puffed-up minions too!

    No time to write right now so I will answer the first question with a simple “Yes! Many times!” while the second requires more than a moment’s consideration.

    When I was a wee child, a grandad said to me, ‘Kid, if you fear to tread where none have been, how will you find the angels?’

    Now I know the path and walk where even angels would fear to tread, and boy is it fun!
    Caveat – as long as I prepare well. there’s a difference between being brave and being stupid (unprepared), so spontaneous only happens if the bag is already packed.
    Because the other message he gave me: prior planning and preparation prevents p*** poor performance!
