According to Mindy Audlin, author of "What If It All Goes Right", there are two words that hold within them the power to create and the power to destroy. They are "What If?"
A "what if downer" answers the "what if" question with things like: What if it doesn’t work? What if it’s too expensive? What if I fail? What if the timing is wrong? What if I make a mistake?
A "what if upper" answers the "what if" question with things like: What if it does work? What if the resources I need are right at my fingertips? What if it’s easy? What if it’s fun? What if it transforms my life in ways I can’t even imagine?
The Universe will respond to both "what if downers" and "what if uppers" and help each create the reality that their thoughts are fueling. I am consciously choosing to be a 'what if upper"!
