What if it works out?
Have you ever gotten lost in "what if" thinking?
Is your "what if" thinking usually positive?
Not mine! Mine often sounds/looks like this:
What if it totally fails?
What if it fails and my super successful friends find out?
What if it fails and my kids find out?
What if it fails and I’ve wasted all these days and months of my life working on it and now I have to start over and I don’t even know what to do next?
AHHHH but how might this sound if you were to (at least also) “what if” your way to more positive thoughts – if only to remain somewhat neutral overall lol.
What if it totally succeeds?
What if it succeeds and my super successful friends find out?
What it if succeeds and my kids find out?
What if it succeeds and I’ve invested all these days and months of my life working on it and now I have this wonderful success to build on… and I don’t even know how big to allow myself to dream now?
Thinking of the potential of success clears the way to thinking about how we might make things happen. So, just for today, when you have a negative thought (I can help ya come up with some if you need me to – I’m an expert… and have for sure spent more than 10,000 hours working on this expertise. I’m now working on the 10,000 hours of positive what-iffing lol).
What if you tried this for a week?
Or a lifetime?
