This blog is part five in a series about how to create your Best Year Ever through creating a compelling vision. To read part four in the series, “Mind Trash Holding You Back? Turn Your Trash into Gold for Confidence and Success” go here…
What the heck is a possibilitarian, you ask? It is someone who sees the exciting possibilities of creating their dream life and business all the time. Being a possibilitarian is a fun way to raise your confidence, energy and get you excited about reaching for your big goals and vision.
Most of us tend to be possibilitarians in the opposite sense, dreaming up all the bad stuff that could happen, which steals our confidence and vision, creates more fear and keeps us stuck. Any of these thoughts sound familiar?
- What if I fail?
- What if I lose money?
- What if they don’t like me?
- What if I can’t do it?
- What if I’m not good enough?
You must be willing to see the possibilities in your life to be able to reach your dreams. You must see the possibilities and opportunities in things like failures, setbacks, and when you get derailed as well.
Possibilitarians dream BIG and see all the possibilities for their life and business. And it makes everything so much more FUN in the meantime!
If you can dream up all those negative scenarios, you can do the opposite too. Might take a little more effort at first, if you aren’t used to it, but I challenge you to play the “What If Up” game to get you more excited, raise your energy, creating more and building your confidence to move forward.
Here’s how it works. When you find yourself going down the what if rabbit hole of fear, change those negative thoughts to positive ones, like this…
- What if I am crazy successful?
- What if I make lots of money?
- What if they LOVE me?
- What if I CAN do it?
- What if I am more than good enough?
Now doesn’t that feel GOOOOODDD???
Reaching for your big, compelling vision can get scary at times because it is the unknown and the thought of not reaching it can be painful. Your gremlins and limiting beliefs will yell louder at you the bigger game you play, and it’s important to have tools you can use to overcome these negative thoughts when they begin to crowd your mind and drag you down.
Holding onto your big vision will support you in continuing to move forward to make it a reality.
