What if I’m late?
What if they think it’s a stupid question?
What if she/he leaves me?
What if they don’t love me anymore?
What if I lose my job?
What if I don’t lose the weight?
What if I miss my flight?
What if it rains?
What if I can’t afford it?
What if it breaks?
What if I fail?
What if I don’t make more money?
What if they don’t invite me to their parties?
What if my house isn’t clean enough?
What if my car breaks down?
What if they don’t like my writing?
How many of these will you think about today? And which ones do you think about most often? We all have our own list of ‘what if’s’ and spend so much of our time wondering and thinking about what could go wrong.
Spend some time today thinking about some of your past situations where things did go wrong and how they eventually turned out. Hopefully you’ll realize that the outcomes were not as bad as you had imagined them to be. This exercise should give you some confidence that things will work out fine the next time you have a negative ‘what if’ moment.
