Just wondering if you’ve ever been in a what if debate with yourself. You know the type of debate that holds your aspirations hostage. You have an idea or dream to go for a certain goal you want to attain, be it starting a business, applying for a job even as simple as purchasing a gift for someone you love. The what if debate talks us out of the desires of our hearts by simply weighing the outcome of things on the negative side of if. For example: “I want to start a book club but what if no one joins”. I thought about this a little further and realized that what if has more than likely been the demise of many great ideas. I have a challenge for you and the what if’s in your life. For the next week try to assume every if is positive. Here’s what I mean, take the example above, “what if I start a book club and have numerous members”. Here are 3 tips that’ll help you redirect your negative what if thoughts.
- Recognize when the negative if’s thoughts are happening
- Picture yourself in the midst of the exact scenario if the idea happened just how you desired
- Push past the fear and take action anyway.
Don’t get me wrong, there will be times when things don’t go the way you plan, however, if you never try it’ll never go the way you plan. Don’t allow what if’s to paralyze your dreams, goals, and aspirations instead allow them to be the fuel to move you to go after everything you want.
