What Would You Do…

What Would You Do...

While scanning the aisles of my local grocery store, looking for marshmallows, I saw a magnet that posed this exact question. It got me thinking, what kind of risks WOULD I take if I were sure that I’d come out on top? I’d probably audition to be a backup dancer for Beyonce, go zip lining or white river rafting (even though I can’t swim), maybe I’d have my own night time talk show on Youtube with special guests Taye Diggs, Jason Statham, and Reggie Bush! I’d call it, ‘Tonight with Taneica!” YEEEEEES! Lol.

But deep down, I know I’ve shied away from everything aforementioned (except for the last one, I will never give up on any dream that involves me interviewing sexy men), because I am pretty sure I’m too short, too klutzy, may break my neck or may drown.

I’d bet that I am not the only one who has thought of some wild and crazy things to try, but thought against it because insurance premiums are to high.

What would YOU attempt to do if you knew you could not fail?

    I really wonder why we're all so afraid to take the leap. I'm the same way. We worry so much about failing until it paralyzes us. What's the worst that could happen? Someone says "No" or we fail…at least we'll know that we tried. And heck, we just may triumph!!

    Start a small shop that would carry local artists' handmade goods; start a community garden in our back yard (we have 1/3 acre); be a choreographer.

  • Lauren says:

    Oh wow. Be a trophy wife! LOL I'm kidding.

    If I knew I couldn't fail. Become an actress. I could never be a good trophy wife, I'd want to actually work and earn my own money.

    I took a picture of this same quote at barnes and noble. I'd open a boutique for affordable cute goodies for women and the home.

    I'd perform a brain transplant of a monkey's brain into a human being and vice versa. After the transplant both the monkey and the human will be able to function normally, ha ha. FYI, I am not a doctor and my hands are very shaky to the point where I occasionally have to use a ruler when I write due to the unsteadiness of my hands.

    Marry Dwayne Johnson {if he were single} & finish college…:(

  • Eboni says:

    Like anonymous 4:32pm, I'd open a photography studio and maybe pursue modeling. But I'd also start an art/fashion/design magazine…ooo AND I want to start an art agency too!

  • Brittany says:

    I'd actually talk to the guys I am interested in and get my license fear of rejection and failure makes these really hard for me to do. I would also pursue a career in either music production or being a record exec, and for the fun of it I would get a degree in Law. These are all things that I really wanted to do with my life but just too scared to do them.

  • Sophie says:

    I would audition for an a capella group, ask the most charming man I can find out on a date, and travel around the world and be bold making friends.

    Maybe I will do these things one day :)

  • MrsCrystal says:

    Be a healthy, simple Southern chef; a Dr. Oz (female version); and a fashion stylist that provides tips on how to dress for certain atmospheres (specifically work and church)

    Oooo, and invent these 2 things that I have been telling my husband that we need to get patent.

  • BreatheFashion3c says:

    I would get my fashion designing company started, propose to Ray Lewis, home-school my daughter, and invent something!
