Often, I have heard it and said it myself ‘if we don’t do ‘x’, then ‘y’ will happen’.
It is always negative and amazingly, we always seem to know the outcome before it’s happened!!
Instead, we could choose to focus on ‘if we do ‘b’, then ‘a’ might happen’.
It’s so much more positive and the excitement is not knowing the outcome – ‘might’ rather than ‘will’. You never know, the outcome could be better than we imagined.
