Fill in the Blank - If I knew I could not fail I would ___________ ?

The question is simple and self-explanatory but I would request you all to think for some time before you answer it.

" Change the world " is a satisfactory (and abstract) answer but is that something which concerns You the most at this moment in your life. So, what would You do if You knew You could not fail ?

My Answer -

If I knew I could not fail I would fall in Love.

    Dec 10 2011: I would want to do the impossible... and fail.

    I think I've learned more through my own failures than I ever learned in school. It's obvious to say if I knew I couldn't fail I'd play the lottery or run for office or start a business or whatever, but there is no success without failure. I probably wouldn't do anything... it's like saying I'm going to run the Death Valley Marathon but since I already know I'm going to win, why bother?

    Ultimately, if I knew I could not fail, I would be perfect.
    If I knew I could not fail I would be God.
    Only God is perfect, so only He is qualified to answer that question.
