Will operating a 3 speed ceiling fan with a reversible motor, in reverse (upward) lessen the life span of the motor?

Well, I'd like to see the thrust bearing(s) in your exact fan motor.
Without knowing, I would assume that the motor would have a similar life turning in either direction.

No it will not lessen the motor life at all

No. Or they would not Offer that option.

No, why would it? They are designed to work either way.

If it was designed to operate in a given manner, troll boy, then it will not effect the life span

No, the motor will not have a shorter life span no matter which direction it is run.
