what you focus on you create more of
Two very powerful words. One mighty question.
When you ask yourself What if? what immediately comes to mind? Do you think of all the things that could go right? Or all the things that could go wrong? Your answer lets you know if you lean towards a fixed mindset or a growth mindset.
This "What if" holds us back in so many areas of our lives if we let it. In parenting, in business, in relationships, in all aspects.
What if I fail?
What if they don't like it?
What if they think it's silly?
What if I lose money?
What if it doesn't turn out the way I planned?
What if I fall down?
What if I am embarrassed?
What if we ask different questions? How would that change our lives? These What If questions could serve us in a much healthier, productive way:
What if it works?
What if they like it?
What if they think it's interesting?
What if it makes money?
What if it turns out just the way it's supposed to turn out?
What if it's a success?
It's up to us. We get to choose which questions we ask and how we react to the answers. We get to choose to shy away from challenges or embrace them. We are free to choose our reaction to failure. We get to choose to give up easily or to persevere. How cool is that?! We get to choose!
It may seem like a small shift in mindset, but it is enough to change your life. 💗
