  1. I would pursue my marketing business idea. The two main things that are holding me back from moving forward are the initial costs, and the fear of the unknown. I have no experience whatsoever in patents, trademarks and copyright laws.If I knew it wouldn't fail, I would have taken those steps by now.Good question for thought.

  2. @Plentymorefish – Nice! @SirThomas – True Love with ourselves is the most important, yes? All else will fall in to place. Movie Star, eh? Get to auditioning! 🙂 @Matty – I can understand the costs etc., which are very frustrating. As far as trademark and copyright laws; Google is your best friend. I've spent hours educating myself from the US Govmnt sites. I say, start small w/ your idea… as long as your passionate about it, and it makes you happy – see where it goes! You never know until you just start…

  3. Powerful post. I'm trying to live my long envisioned dream of being a writer full time. Baby steps but it's taken me 30 years to start so there's no stopping me now! :-)Love you~

  5. I'm pretty sure I don't fail. Ever.But that's because I only set out to do things that I know I can achieve.What is beyond my limits that I would like to achieve?Making enough to retire on before I turn 30.

  6. If it's what you really want and it will make you happy.. there is a way. But, as you get older most people realize they need less than what they thought to be happy. It's about sulf-fufillment and love. I think we are all further along in ways we didn't imagine. Other areas may need work, that's the trick.

  7. Wow. That's something to think about! The first thing that came to my mind was that I would be a professional ballerina. I've always wanted to dance for my profession but in college I ended up dropping dance as my minor and going with accounting instead.accounting? I KNOW, what was I thinking?

  8. That is one heck of an intimidating question. One that I've asked myself before, but I'm not satisfied that I've ever let myself even know the full answer.I'm going to keep asking until I get one, though.

  9. @Secretia – I love this answer. I will meet you there, Rainwoman. :)@Tattytiara – I feel the same way, sometimes. I believe this is about facing that fear; allowing ourselves to want something we know we deserve. I'm fascinated that most of us hold back with our dreams. I am 41 and only now realzing life really isn't a dress rehersal. I also am a huge dork (but I already knew that).

  10. Hi Michelle and thank you! You made my morning with that comment. 🙂 The answer to that question is really interesting, isn't it? Outside of Brad Pitt (I totally agree), it's a little heavy to really be honest with our own selves. Really look inside what we want and then the question is: they why aren't we following our dream? What if we fail? So what? As long as we are living our best life, isn't that already some form of success?

  12. Without the probablitity failure, is there honestly any success though?And what would become of hope and love if everyone in this world was successful? I'm having a difficult time answering your question because I do not to live in a world without failure in it.To fail is to sometimes learn some of life's greatest lessons so I don't look at failure the way most people do.I hope you don't mind. I will be adding you to my blogs I follow but I won't be able to do it until I get to a computer next week.If you want a invite to my private blog, let me know.My emsill address is on my profile page.

  14. @IT – Thanks. I like your answer. 🙂 @Kate – Do you play piano now? If it ignites that fire in you, why not just play because you love it? 🙂 Thanks for taking the time to comment. I'm off to read you now. @Shelly – The beauty of the question (and all daydreaming, I think) is to imagine a world that is not realistic. If we imagined failure as NOT part of our lives (therefore, no reason for fear of failure), we are left to follow our dreams. I agree; reality is very much filled with lessons (failure). When we allow ourselves permission to cross the indelible line of fear, amazing things happen.Thanks for taking the time to comment and inviting me to your blog. I will be by, for sure. @Farmer's Wife – All wonderful answers! I have no doubt you will and have already attained them. Showing your kids the world through traveling is awesome. Until you can step foot on far away lands, at least you have books and the Internet! You're a great mom. 🙂
