If Only…

𝐈𝐟 𝐎𝐧𝐥𝐲…
 
Have you ever said “If only…”
 
If only I was smarter…
If only I was prettier…
If only I’d gone to university…
If only I’d saved more…
If only I had worked harder…
If only I had more friends…
If only I had a partner…
If only I’d had children…
If only I had said yes that time…
If only I’d been braver…
If only I’d got out sooner…
If only I… (whatever)
 
…THEN I’d be more successful.
 
Do you know, though, that these are just excuses? Deep down, do you know these are just convenient beliefs that you cling to so that you can avoid taking responsibility for what you have (or don’t have) in your life?
 
“If only” keeps you in a place of dissatisfaction.
 
“If only” keeps you seeing yourself as a failure.
 
“If only” stops you from seeing that you are the author of your own story.
 
When you are willing to give up your “If onlys” and swap them for “What’s next?” – then you can start to create your success.
