nothing, where is the challenge.

This is interesting to me, as I know people who wont take fight unless they know that they have a good chance of winning (base on opponents level of taining/record), seems pointless.
the victory just massages their ego

Start a business. I'm going to do that anyways, but if I knew it wouldn't fail I'd do it even sooner.

My preacher asked this a similar question earlier in the month - what would you do for God if you knew you could not fail.

and he added - ....... and you are a coward if you do not do it.
Thought provoking

As for me- I would start a group to build homes and communities for the underprivileged while at the same time providing OJT trade training for youth.
