A London woman’s love life and career both hinge, unknown to her, on whether or not she catches a train. We see it both ways, in parallel.
I loved this movie when it came out. I found it fascinating. I began to notice little things, like if I dropped my car keys, perhaps those few extra seconds created the circumstances for me to avoid a traffic accident.
Digging even deeper though, can help you let go of poor choices, missed opportunities and regrets, and re-focus on the lessons you learned and gratitude.
First things first. You must identify the big life changing moments that you feel impacted your life in a negative way. Here are a few prompts to get you started: A job you didn’t get, a job you did get which turned out badly, someone you shouldn’t have dated, someone you shouldn’t have broken up with, an opportunity you should’ve said yes to, stock you shouldn’t have sold, a street you shouldn’t have walked on alone, a day you should’ve stayed in bed…
Keep that list going to smaller stuff that still has enough impact to come to mind: the entire cake you shouldn’t have eaten, the expensive watch you shouldn’t have bought, the trip to Vegas you shouldn’t have taken, the doll you shouldn’t have given away, the phone call you should’ve made, the “sorry” you should have said…
What if all of these life events were supposed to happen exactly as they did to make you the person you are today, in order to accomplish what you are truly meant to do/be?
You can dwell on “what if I had…” keeping you stuck in the past, dragging the past into your present and future (in which case you should stop reading now) OR you could “what if…” possibilities.
Start a WHAT IF list. Here are some prompts:
What if I started my own business?
What if I pursued my dream?
What if I asked him/her on a date?
What if I invested in a retirement plan?
What if I leased my dream car?
What if I eat a few cookies, enjoy them and then go for a walk?
These “what ifs” create possibilities in your brain. These possibilities get your brain thinking about “how to” which leads to interesting ideas and great solutions.
I used this method to create extra monthly income to lease my first Lexus in 2007. I also used it to make 7K in one day when I wanted to invest in a coach’s elite mastermind program.
Watching the two ways Gwyneth Paltrow’s life and career pan out depending on her missing or getting on a train says a lot about those split second decisions you make.
To your success,
PS…Speaking of what if… What if you had the best skin of your life? Would you have more confidence, smile more, pet your face constantly because it feels so good (or is that just me? VISIT MY STORE HERE or email me for help
