The ‘What If’ Game…


What would your life look like if you took the time to align your time, attention, money and energy
on things that correlate to your innermost core values?

Herein lies the dilemma, however. If you do not know what your top 3 core values are – – you may be caught up in a whirlwind of busy frenzy instead of productive growth.

After you figure out your top 3 core values … now ask yourself (if you dare) – what are your top 3 big goals you want to focus on for the next 12 months? ONLY 3.

Sometimes the ‘What If’ game is more like analysis paralysis. You get so caught up in trying to figure out possible outcomes, negative scenarios, you end up doing absolutely nothing. Or you spin your wheels on things that don’t actually matter to you. What if I look like a fool? Well, what if you shock the world and shine like a star?

How about we focus on the good kind of ‘What If’ game … what if I could simply and streamline and actually make my dreams come true? What if I enjoyed my days instead of feeling drained from stress?

Still with me? Dig deeper. Ask yourself the following questions. Really think about them – but give yourself a deadline to have the answers. A deadline you agree to is a promise, so let’s set a time/date and keep our promises to ourselves. We deserve nothing less. If you can’t be honest with yourself, figure out why. Here we go.

Questions to answer by your self-appointed deadline: Answer them in the order that suits you best.

  • What are my top 3 core values?
  • What are my top 3 goals/priorities for the next 12 months? (Be specific)
  • Who am I?
  • Who am I not?
  • What do I value?
  • What do I want more of?
  • What brings me joy?
  • What holds me back?
  • What lies do I need to de-bunk?
  • Are there any myths, assumptions or half-truths I need to clarify and clear up?
  • What lies have I told myself?

If you really have trouble answering these questions, maybe seek the counsel of a trusted friend, mentor or partner. Primarily, however, this is about YOU – – and what YOU want … not what other people want for you or expect.

I double dog dare ya to take the time to figure this out. Feel free to share with me how it goes. Your answers are private, no need to share unless you just want to – – but definitely share that you participated in this exercise.

And just to be clear for the record – – YES I am doing this too.

As always, make champion choices,

    Oh my goodness! I’m so glad you posted. I’m going to print this out and really work on this. I’m coming up on 5 years of widow hood and life has beef a blur. Thank you
