What’s the Worst that Could Happen?

Life is all about perspective and how YOU look at things.

Life also has a funny way of throwing things at you when you least expect it or better yet ‘you think you can’t handle it’:-0

But we always end up getting through any crisis or problem.

Trust me this year I have seen about every curve ball I could hit: from selling our 1st business, moving half way across the country (again!), with no job, having no place to live, still having our home in Sioux Falls with no renter for 4 months (until now…YEAH!). Its been more than I thought we could handle at many points, but we took everything in stride, chipped away at it and there is light at the end of the tunnel.

I came across this blog post the other day from Paradiso CrossFit:

What’s the worst that can happen? I ask myself that question a lot before doing something new.  Imagine the worst case scenario and ask yourself if you can live with whatever that answer may be.  The answer does invariably arrive, I could die.  But of course, I could die in a car accident tomorrow, or get my face eaten off by some flesh eating mold, and I remember the fear of death is no reason to not try something new.   So ask yourself, Do I want to participate in the Malibu Trail Race of Death?  What’s the worst that could happen?

It is always important to think and remain positive throughout life, especially in the rough times, and I believe one of the ways to do so, is to think the opposite and say to yourself “What’s the worst that can happen?”

Anything you can add? What has been thrown your way this year that you didn’t know about or ‘thought you couldn’t handle’ but did and came out fine?
