But what if…

Yesterday I asked myself a question…

If you were not afraid and you knew you would not fail what would you do this year?

I asked it again as I was trying to fall asleep last night. ( Just to let you know, this is probably not the best question to ask yourself as you are attempting to fall asleep.)

I found it to be a difficult question for me to simply answer.

As soon as I verbalized something, my mind would immediately point out the risks involved.

But if I do that…then this might happen.

But, what if it’s as hard as I think it will be?
But what if it’s even harder?
But what if I live to regret it?

But what if…

I wonder how many times that little phrase has discouraged me from attempting something that involved risk?

So, this morning I started looking at the things I was fearful of doing and putting a positive spin on it.

But what if I succeed?
But what if it turns out to be one of the best decisions of my life?
But what if the challenges involved grow me in ways I never thought were possible?

…still thinking!

One thought on “But what if…

    Ponder that one for a while then evoke the ancient Nike wisdom and JUST DO IT!!
