A Question to Inspire Your Calling

Personalized support for learning how to integrate mindfulness into your life. Delivered fresh everyday by our world renowned experts. Choose meditation duration:

Hi, welcome back to

your Daily Mindfulness.

In today's session, we're

going to talk about failing.

Many of us have heard the

question, what would you do

if you knew you wouldn't fail?

It's often used to help us orient

to our life in a non fear-based way.

Since so much of why we don't do something

is because we fear we would fail, by

taking that option off the table we

can potentially identify where our

energy would naturally want to orient.

However, I recently came across

a different perspective on

this, a different question.

What if, instead of asking, what would I

do if I knew I wouldn't fail, you asked,

what would I do if I knew I would fail?

What would I do if I knew I?

Would fail?

Interesting reframe.


What I like about this is that it's asking

you to assess what is so important to

you that even if you knew you wouldn't

accomplish it, any effort in its

direction would be a worthwhile endeavor.

For me, this takes me deeper

into my heart, my soul.

It's less about what I could accomplish

and more about what I'm called

to put my energy toward in this

life or at this point in my life.

I'm not saying it will

necessarily resonate with you,

but it's worth asking to see.

What would I do if I knew I would fail?

Thank you for your practice.

Let's settle in for today's meditation.
