Daily Prompt: Too Big to Fail . . .
Tell us about something you would attempt if you were guaranteed not to fail (and tell us why you haven’t tried it yet).
There is no ONE thing I want to do, I want to do EVERYTHING and ALL by myself at that.
So, I want to start a business right . . . No! Correction: I want to start several businesses. I have the ideas, I count 9 to date and the list continues to grow. But the problem with me is I want to do ALL of them, not just one. No, that’s under-reaching to me – I want to do them ALL. But I know I can’t start all at the same time. I just don’t know which one to start with. And in my researching for the various ideas, I get overwhelmed and I chicken myself out of many of them, and get pissed when I discover someone else came up with my idea.
No idea is 100% original, but . . . it still stings!
So, I want to write a book . . . Correction again: I want to write one book (so far), and do a compilation of other short stories. My problem here is that I feel grossly inadequate to write a book let alone several short stories. I know . . . writers tend to have serious trepidations about their writing but I feel mine is way deeper than that. It feels like my voice is aight for personal posts but for my short stories?!?!? Not so much, not even a little bit.
So, I want to travel . . . the World! I want to see Santorini, Venice, Bali, Australia, I want to see the Northern Lights, the Great Wall of China, and the Pyramids of Egypt. This to me is probably the most achievable thing on my list. Strange, I know! I would take a year and just travel, it’s just a matter of time. What’s stops me now is the fact that I’d need serious money to do such, hence my current day job
So, I want to learn a myriad of new skills that would help me manage ME, and run my businesses seamlessly and to indulge in many other interests. I want to do video production and editing, advertising and marketing, graphic design, and photography. This also is just a matter of time. I’ve already started a Project Management course, and an online Web Business Design course. The others will come, in time.
So, (and I cannot believe I left this dream off my list) I want to start a clutch line. I made a clutch out of denim and everybody loves it! I want to make an entire line of denim clutches and other types of clutches. I know I can do it but what stops me?! Sometimes its my perfectionist self killing that dream because I’m not entirely ‘neat’. Other times, I guess it’s a fear of success, that the demand for my clutches will overwhelm me. This is probably the only dream where success scares me. Strange, right?!
So you see . . . I want to do sooooo many things and all at the same time. I’m highly impatient, especially when it pertains to me. I just want to do EVERYTHING now!
Do you ever feel like that?
Do you ever feel overwhelmed by your expansive list of dreams?
Do you ever think you’ve bitten off more than you can chew? Cause I do!
