The question is…are these actually fails? The stars of these stories have proven to be less than perfect at their endeavors. But really, aren’t we all imperfect? Haven’t we all fallen at some point? Why do we have this ridiculous notion that we shouldn’t do that which is clearly in our nature? Why do we fear falling?
One of the secrets of the Game of Life is that you can neither win nor lose. The fear of falling is a fallacy. We have been taught that falling = failing = losing. This is a bogus equation. The truth is that there is nothing to fail. Nothing to lose. But much to gain. Falling is the best way to learn. And you can’t level up unless you learn.
Instead of fearing failure, try seeking out ways to fall. Set yourself free. Free to fall on your face, fall behind, fall in love, fall between the cracks, fall short, fall for a pack of lies, fall to pieces, fall under someone’s spell, fall up the stairs, fall into a trap, fall off the radar, fall out of bed, fall out of favor, fall over backwards, fall apart, fall flat, fall down, fall overboard, fall off your high horse, and then fall asleep. And do it all over again the next day.
To fulfill this Bonus Mission, tell us about ways that you have fallen. Give yourself #foolepoints for a Minor Fall and double #foolepoints for an Epic Fall.
