What’s The Worst That Could Happen

What’s the worst that could happen?

It’s a great question.

One that’s under utilized.

When someone says this, it’s often mockingly or facetious.

If faced appropriately, it’s a powerful tool.

“I’m afraid I’m going to lose my job.”

Ok, what’s the worst that can happen?

Answer the question, then create a plan to move forward.

How will you find new work? What resources do you need to secure a new job? How much money do you have saved? How long can you go without work? What people and resources can you tap for support?

“What if I get injured?”

“What if she/he breaks up with me?”

“What if someone breaks into my house?”

“What if my business fails?”

All great questions.

Taking time to answer them removed of emotion is an asset.

What is the worst thing that can happen?

If that happens, what options do I have?

What steps will I take?
