Why Not?

While at an event last night this simple, yet life changing question was brought up.

A woman who now has a very high position at a Fortune 100 company was asked one of her tips for making hard decisions and pushing herself.  Her answer was simple, whenever she gets to a pretty difficult decision, she asks herself:

Why Not?

It's so simple, yet so profound because it's the opposite of what I see most people doing.  We usually talk ourselves out of it, thinking we're not good enough or not qualified enough.  We run all the bad things that could possibly happen through our head.  We could look foolish. We could lose money.  We might leave that great job and then may not get a chance to ever go back to it.

But what would happen that if every time you really wanted to take on something you switched the self-talk from thinking of all that could go wrong, to just saying why not?

Could you fail?  Absolutely, in fact, there's a good chance you might.

But could you end up a stronger and smarter person?  Would you be in a better position than you were before you started?  The answer to all of that is yes.

So take out the doubt, take out the questions, take out all of the things that could go wrong, and start asking yourself, why not, and see how your life changes.

I would love to hear from you.  What's the one thing you would love to use 'why not' on right now?  Comment below.
