What Would You Do If You Knew You Could Not Fail?

Today I read some letters from students.  They tell me what they would do if they magically knew that they could not fail.  And I think the answers surprised all of us.  I think the biggest surprise for me was the moment I started asking myself why I would do it only if I knew I would not fail.  I think it’s a good lesson for us all to make sure we pay attention to the reasons why we don’t go after our dreams.

I read a letter from a student named Ingrid who asks about the hardest parts of becoming a doctor, how to balance a career with personal life, and how to travel cheaply.
