What if? Why not?

Sometimes, when you open yourself up to opportunities, ask yourself these two questions, What if...Why not? This is such a simple principle; you would be shocked on the results you might get so easily. This principle says basically that when opportunity arises... just try it What if I...___________(fill in the blank) why not? Sometimes, in order to succeed you only need to lean into the direction of success and the rest will happen automatically. When you open the possibility with "what if", you automatically change your perspective into problem solving mode. This forces you into problem solving mode rather than complaining, griping, whinning. Make yourself be open to opportunities and be willing to grasp any tiny chance that comes your way by solving problems, not focusing on the challenges. You need to be willing to lean into it and see how it unfolds - ie not necessarily seeing the entire pathway set out from the beginning. Often we are afraid to commit or afraid to start etc because we are unsure of the path or because the outcome is uncertain. In the Big White Book, Jack Canfield states "Simply start, then keep taking what feel like logical next steps, and the journey will ultimately take you to where you want to go - or even someplace better." Sometimes this might seem like your driving through the fog and can only see a few feet in front of you, but if you keep on moving forward asking what if and why not, taking one step after another, more of the road will be revealed and soon you will be arriving at your goal! Pick an area of your life - financial, relationships, career, hobby etc - that you would like to explore and Gain Success.
