Don’t Ask “What If?”, Ask “How?”

Thinking positively can be difficult at times. My former manager told me think “how” instead of “what if”. I think this is a great example of how to think positively. It eliminates the thought of failure from your head and provides the ideal mindset to get things done.

For example, if i wanted to get this post done but the only thoughts in my head are “What if something comes up?” or “What if this post does not get read?” etc. then i have set my self up for these things to happen. However, if i think in how instead, i will always succeed.

By saying “How can i get this post done?” that ensures that i have the time set aside to do it, or by saying “How do get this post to be read?” this causes me to be more aware of what i am writing and the topic of my writing. So to all you out there thinking in what-ifs, you are only doing yourself a disservice.

About Thain

I am a high school senior with a strong interest in psychology and philosophy; my interest in psychology stems from my analytical thinking, I analyze just about everything. It is similar for philosophy except that everything is more in theory than in fact. These all compound to create the reason why I joined HNWF; self help type stuff has a lot of psychological principles in it and surrounding it. I joined because I was surrounded by it and the idea of being part of it interested me.
