It is amazing how those two small words could have so much impact on the world and your personal life. When I drive into Newark, NJ I see a big billboard with those two words plastered on it. Just the other day, I was watching the lastest version of HG Well's Time Machine staring Guy Pearce, Yancey Arias, and Mark Addy and marvelled at the fact that the whole movie was based on those two words. What was really good was that it clearly pointed out the hope and the danger that those two words hold.
Now you may ask, "What is the danger of What If"? If we dwell on the past with negative lenses on, What If can turn into a S&M Fest of self-loathing and self-defeating talk. It can lead us to dark places where we ponder on the possibilities of things which can't be changed. And we maginify our failures, or perceived failures. It is not a good place to be. Especially if one is striving to build a business.
Does this mean that we can look at the past? Not at all. It's just that when we look at the past we want to look at how we can make improvements in the present and the future. Speaking about the future, What if if used the wrong way can be just as detrimental as looking at it in the past.
The issue with the future is that we can get trapped in to all sorts of limiting thinking which block us from progressing. We can look at all the things which can go wrong and hold them as if they had already happened. What if when used properly can help us reach high heights. Instead of "What if this doesn't work" why not focus on "What if this does work"? Rather than "What if I fail?", why not "What if I succeed".
What if is a powerful statement and situation. We can let it keep us or drag us to bottom or it can bring us to the top. The choice is your.
