Whenever we do something, we usually think about all of the things that might go wrong.
But we barely ever think about what might happen if everything goes according to plan.
We usually think about things like:
People might think we're crazy.
We might lose our jobs.
People might laugh about you.
He (or she) might leave us.
We might go broke.
And so on.
Whenever you think about what might go wrong it feels like being on an emotional rollercoaster that's on steroids.
So why don't we just think about all of the cool stuff that might happen, instead?
Because that would require us to think about success.
And success is still something not a lot of people want to think or even talk about.
It's still sort of stigmatized, which is funny because failure is also stigmatized, which is the reason why mediocrity has become the norm.
Some people are afraid of success (whatever success is).
Others simply try to ignore it. And then they tell people that they don't want to be successful. That way they won't be accountable for their failure.
And every time you picture something, you get a step closer to it actually becoming reality.
If you picture something going horribly wrong, over and over again, at one point it will go wrong.
So why not turn the entire thing upside down and start picturing your success over and over again.
Be it a great presentation. A great project or whatever.
And at one point, if you just picture it often and long enough (the key here is persistence and not giving up, no matter what), it will become reality.
If it works one way, why shouldn't it work the other way round?
I really don't see a reason why this should not work..
