I’ve experienced many things in my life. Dreadful things by many accounts. For example I’ve spent three months locked in a mental institute. Literally strapped to a bed for my own good and the good of others. Not allowed outside for weeks at a time.
When I was twelve I was kicked out of my house. Me and my parents couldn’t see eye to eye. I lived on the streets. Going to sleep at night in a little hut that I built in a wooded area.
So when a friend of mine asked me for some advice about a rough patch that he was going through the first thing that came to mind was, “What’s the worst that could happen?”
Really, What’s The Worst That Can Happen?
So a trick for me is to think of the worst that could happen. To actually imagine the worst possible outcome. Spend some time there. And once there in the worst that could happen you’ll soon realize that it’s actually not that bad.
Then, if your open to it, you can start to realize that no matter how bad it gets, that if the worst actually happens, you WILL get by.
And things will change.
Get better even.
Sage Advice About Overcoming The Worst That Could Happen
Dale Carnegie, bestselling author, had this to say about dealing with the worst that could happen:
“First ask yourself: What is the worst that can happen? Then prepare to accept it. Then proceed to improve on the worst.”
Success comes from the little things. The baby steps that seem so small when we’re doing them. But these tiny tasks lead us to places of unknown wealth and wonderment.
So instead of playing in worlds of what ifs and dreaming of the worst that could happen, why not get out there and start to create what can be now?
What are three simple and small things that you can do right now to drop kick these worries?
Tiny actions that can be done.
Look around you and use the tools that you have right now to create the opportunity that your looking for.
And remember…no matter how bad it gets…it always gets better.
