There are two options, “What if it doesn’t work out”? and “What if it does work out”?
“It”, can be anything you want it to be.
The natural tendancy with most people is to take the negative approach first. It’s like a justification for not taking action because the feeling is that it’s safer not to try, because it might go wrong.
The alternative is to take action and things go well and you achieve success or reach your goal.
But wait…..maybe there is a not so obvious third option to consider? By re-adjusting your thinking you may find that even if something doesn’t work out there is a benefit anyway, that there is a positive result? The question then to ask is, “What if I do this and it doesn’t work out…. will that be okay too?”
It is entirely possible that you may learn from your mistake, that it is okay to act or try something new. So, don’t worry about something not potentially working out, drop the fears and learn from the experience. I wonder how much more we could get done?
