When Failure Is NOT An Option

I have joined a fantastic group of ladies, who are involved in a weekly blog project. Every Thursday, we will dazzle you with our insight on various topics. And each week, we take turns coming up with the idea for the blog topic. Please check out their blogs as well, listed under my Blogroll section. Just click on:

Froggie (Tracey): One frog’s distinct voice on the world around her.

Merry Land Girl (Melissa): Tales of a suburban mom who likes to talk about pop culture, books, Judaism, family, friendship and anything else that comes to mind.

Mom Of Many (Susanna): One Mom’s perspective on life, raising kids, knitting and other unrelated topics.

This week, Tracey’s topic choice was: What would you do if you knew you wouldn’t fail?

So many of us don’t do the things we’d yearn to do, for fear of failure.

Something I’ve always secretly wanted to partake in (and have never really spoken up about) is to be a participant on  “Female Ninja Warriors”.

Kevin first introduced me to Female Ninja Warriors while we were watching the G4 Channel one night. You know, the channel that has been referenced as “Girls, Guns, Gadgets and Games”? Hence “G4”. A total guy’s television station.

I was completely in awe of these ladies. They were strong, and more than physically fit, working through an insane obstacle course to be crowned as a female warrior. Inwardly, I would daydream a bit about my own chance to go through  the course, and give it a shot.

With no risk of failure, I’d sign up. Fly to Japan. My body would magically be ready for the rigorous and treacherous journey ahead of me. I would perfect balance, and be completely light on my feet, yet move quickly.

The announcer would say in Japanese, “We’ve never seen anyone like her!”

It would be the ultimate physical trophy, for someone who enjoys fitness and a challenge.
