One of the most demotivating questions you can ask yourself is ‘what if’? We all have ‘what if’ moments, but in my opinion there is basically nothing good about that question.
I sometimes have so many ‘what if…’ questions going through my mind, that I start doubting everything. ‘What if I stayed in London’, ‘What if I defended myself instead of keeping my mouth shut’, ‘What if I did things differently in the past’, ‘What if…’ .
The decisions I made in the past were decisions that I felt comfortable with at that time. It felt better that way. We all make decisions and choices based on facts we have at that given moment. So we shouldn’t think about the ‘what if’.
Maybe the only ‘what if’ question we should ask ourselves is: ‘What if I stopped thinking about the what if’s?’
