"What If"...How to flip the script and your results

Have you ever gone into a situation with fear and doubt about your ability to achieve a good outcome?

I struggle with fear and doubt like anyone else. It can be paralyzing and really stop you from achieving your dreams. I know it kept me from beginning my coaching business for many years until I went through this "What if" exercise. 

I learned that by being proactive and anticipating the challenges fear and doubt get replaced by confidence and action. 

For every challenging situation that causes you to fear and doubt your ability, come up with two solutions to that situation. 

Proactive instead of reactive. 

Confidence followed by action instead of fear and stagnation. 

Choose your outcome.

Get after it!
