What If?

By Debbie Friedman

Have you ever played the "What If game with yourself? To be more accurate, has your MIND ever played that game with you?

Okay, if you're human, and you probably are if you're reading this, then you know how the game goes. You're about ready to make a big step forward or try something new and all of a sudden the "What If's go wild.

Going on a trip outside the country? "What if there's a war or violence breaks out." Starting a new company? "What if you fail? Going to make a phone call? "What if they don't like you or they say "no"?

Have you ever noticed that this game always takes you to the bottom of the elevator --- the very lowest place that you could possibly go? The elevator of this thinking doesn't stop at the middle floors, giving you a chance to consider alternatives.

Oh, no. This game takes you straight to the bottom, creating the image and fear of the very worst that could possibly happen.

The "What if game is based on lack and limitation thinking, what is often called poverty consciousness. Poverty consciousness is rooted in the idea that there's not enough to go around, or if someone's handing out all the goodies in life, you're in the wrong line.

And, let's be honest, sometimes the "What If game is created by other people. Parents, who want to protect you, or people who tend to play life small are famous for this. They have a limited vision of life or want to keep you in the womb where they feel you're safe, and in the process they project this limited vision onto others. If they can keep you small, their world is intact and they can continue to feel safe.

The biggest problem with this game is that it can stop you dead in your tracks. The fears and doubts settle in and before you know it you're procrastinating, or worse yet find yourself in a state of paralysis where you can't seem to do anything at all. Often, we'll talk ourselves out of our dreams by convincing ourselves that we really didn't want something after all, telling ourselves that it really wasn't important.

If we do this often enough, we set a pattern for our lives that effectively kills our passions, our dreams, our inspirations as we "settle for a life of just getting by and existing. It can leave you with the feeling that you're just taking up space on this planet as you move through each day mindlessly without a great deal of joy.

What if you decided you don't want to play the old game - that you're ready for a new one? Try this one on for size.

What if this life that we're living is one incredibly wonderful game where you are in complete control of what you experience? Think of yourself now as the master designer of your life and YOU are in charge. By the power of what you think and take action to do, you have the ability to choose your life down to every detail, limited only by your imagination. Can you see it?

What if you not only had that right but that responsibility?

What if you knew that you are guaranteed to succeed at everything you do? What if you knew that whatever you can imagine is already waiting for you - all you have to do is claim it? What if everything in the Universe was available to support you so that you can live the life of your dreams?

Here's the truth of it: You create your life. You create EVERYTHING in your life. If you're not creating consciously, you are creating with your subconscious mind, based on old beliefs and ideas.

Starting today, make the decision to play a new game - one that is joyful, loving, prosperous, and filled with everything that will absolutely delight and excite you!

YOU deserve it!
