Are You Living Your Worst-Case Scenario?
This story is from a friend of mine who had been talking to a friend of his, dreaming of starting his own business but facing resistance.
My friend asked ”So what’s the worst-case scenario?”.
His friend replied, ”That I have to find another job”.
My friend: ”How’s that different from your situation now?”.
Silence. The to-be-entrepreneur realized he was living his worst-case scenario and it wasn’t that bad. Meaning aiming for the best-case scenario isn’t that scaring.
No matter what change you’d like to make in your professional life, ask yourself if it might be that you’re already living your worst-case scenario. And then…GO!
