How often do you say “if such and such happens”?
The more positive version is “when such and such happens.”
I have realized that I approach things differently when I think of things as “if” events. I imagine how nice it would be, and hope that it will happen, but there’s also a part of me that accepts from the beginning that it most likely will not happen and I don’t try as hard.
Yes, I just said that. I don’t try as hard.
But for those “when” events – I put my all into it – even while I’m scared. I work like crazy to make it happen, and I do everything in my power to make it a reality. No matter how far-fetched the idea is, if I approach it as “when this becomes reality” – the expectation is that it will.
What things in your life do you need to approach as “when they happen” instead of “if they happen”?
