WOW | What You Think

What would you attempt if you knew you could not fail?

Even though fear of failure should not stop you from achieving and doing the things that you want, a complete disregard for that possibility is not good. Self confidence and self esteem should not spill into hubris; it is important to stay grounded in humility and modesty. I think there is no love of life without despair about life.

If I knew I could not fail, I would still pursue a career as a makeup artist. Since a child, I had always been creative and loved the arts and have been appreciative of beauty in all forms. As human beings, we cannot do without beauty and the human body is the ultimate form of beauty in all of creation. An endeavor in accentuating that beauty presents us with endless possibilities. Every human body is an original piece, not just as a physical body but as a spiritual being. I believe that you should not subscribe to standards of beauty, success and failure. I believe that you should accept yourself and your journey and not compromise on your originality. You will only set yourself up for failure if you try to live up to standards and expectations imposed on you by others.
