When we say we don’t know what to do, it isn’t entirely true.
We always know what to do. We just don’t know whether what we want to do will work out or not.
That fear of failure paralyses us from anticipating even the good that might come out of it.
What if we asked ourselves: What is the worst case?
What if we imagined that worst case playing out in reality?
And when we did, what if we asked ourselves: “Will I be okay despite that?”
If we somehow get to a point where we will be okay despite the worst case scenario actually playing through, the tough decision won’t be tough anymore.
Visualising the worst case scenario doesn’t make the future worse, it just makes the present better by helping us decide.
