The brain is here to protect us and it bases its information on past experiences.
As a child, our experiences are limited. If something is hot, we'll grab it and burn our hands because our brain may not know what hot is. After an experience like this, our actions will change.
As we grow older we continue to gain experiences and our decisions continue to change based on those experiences. The problem is that the brain (not your brain) is often thinking about all the negative things that could happen as appose to the positive. As we know, it's there to protect us.
What if I ask for the sale and she says no?
What if I ask for a promotion and my boss says no?
What if I write this blog and nobody reads it?
What if we change our mindset and start to focus on the positive? What if I ask for the sale and I get it? What if my boss gives me more than I expected? What if this blog starts to help millions of people?
I feel way better thinking about those outcomes.
The Top Five Regrets of the Dying by Bronnie Ware is one of the best books I have read. This book puts decisions and their implications into perspective from people who have lived and have had those same fears that we all have today.

What if you don't take action towards your dreams? How would you feel tomorrow? Next week? Next year? 10 years from now?
Which outcome do you choose?
