What if…..?

by on May.05, 2008, under Uncategorized

Do you find there are often times when you ask yourself questions like: What if it all goes wrong? What if the economy gets worse? What if I get in a financial bind? What if I get hurt and can’t work? What if he won’t love me anymore? What if…What if …. What if?

I know I certainly have. This is called negative what if thinking. It’s a nasty habit that most of us have.

So, what do we do about it? Well, nature abhors a vacuum, so we must do more than just remove the habit. We must replace it with a better habit, the habit of positive what if thinking.

Whenever you hear yourself starting to come out with one of those fear driven thoughts, stop it in its tracks with a deliberate power thought like: What if they love my idea? What if I look better and better with age? What if I can do it? What if things turn out better than I ever imagined?

I know it sounds simple but it will be a bit awkward at first.

I’m so good at the negative what if’s that sometimes I find my mind goes blank and I can’t think of one good thought for several seconds. Man I hate that.

We can’t live in fear of what might happen if we are to truly get the most out of this short trip they call life because guess what? Things happen.

Norman Vincent Peale says: “The secret of life isn’t what happens to you, but what you do with what happens to you.”

Nothing is going to happen to you that you can’t do something about. Do your best to assess the damage, deal with it as quickly as possible and get on with your life and don’t look back.

You’re on the stage of your life. There is no dress rehearsal.

This is your one chance. So go out there and live it.
