Do you find yourself in an endless loop of “What if?” when you’re presented with a new opportunity? This happens to me sometimes, especially if the opportunity is way outside my comfort zone.
As mentioned in yesterday’s post, I’ve realized that What Ifs are another indicator that I don’t have enough information in order to answer these questions.
The danger of What Ifs is that they seem very reasonable—after all this is part of doing the necessary due diligence to make sure the opportunity isn’t a scam or trap in disguise. But if I allow myself to continue asking What If, then I’m stalling or, worse, I’ve gotten myself stuck.
The fear underlying the What Ifs is a result of knowing the answers are not in my comfort zone, they are in the unknown. I must take action even though I don’t have all the answers and even though it feels as if I’m flying by the seat of my pants and liable to crash at any moment!
Lots to let go of today! Letting go of What Ifs, letting go of comfort zones, letting go of having to know all the answers before beginning, and letting go of demanding a calm, sedate pace when in the unknown!
What techniques to you use to help you let go of the sticking point of What Ifs? Please share in the comments below. Thank you!!
