What Is the Absolute Best Thing that Can Happen?

You and I have learned the platitude when exploring a new idea:

“What is the worst thing that can happen?'

Ego chooses to focus on fear. Potential punishment follows. Odd, eh? Who molds a life based on avoiding punishment? Who picks their dreams or melancholy existence based on the possibility of castigation?

Picture downside-level thinking at its finest. Perhaps you ponder starting something new. Ideas flow through your mind. Outcomes pop up. Maybe you consider some potentially negative outcomes. What bad things may happen if you explore specific ideas? What is the worst thing that can happen?

Based on the worst possible outcomes you proceed or move in the opposite direction with the ideas of:

  • loss
  • pain
  • suffering
  • punishment

in mind.

But imagine how life changes the moment you change perspective? Imagine how exploring the absolutely best possible scenarios would broaden your human experience?

What is the best thing that could happen if you stepped toward your dreams today? Picture yourself taking one step toward a dream so seemingly far away that 1 billion miles seems a conservative estimate of the distance between yourself and the dream life. However, what if one step covered 10 million miles? What if writing and publishing one guest post served as 500 steps versus one step? You have no idea how much ground the process decides to cover based on your genuine intent.

Of course, good things require some time and generous service. No one truly knows in ego how long journeys toward dreams last because no one human ego controls the Universe. But picturing the best possible outcome prepares you fully for:

  • facing
  • feeling
  • releasing

fears fueling the worst possible outcomes. Who thinks like this? Who renders these platitudes? Who offers such advice?

Human ego sees:

  • fear
  • illusions
  • loss
  • poverty
  • separation

to the insane extent that it prepares itself for the worst when the worst does not exist. Every illusion of a nightmarish scenario clears fears. Clearing fears brings you back to who you really are. Who you are is billions of light years ahead of:

  • fear
  • ego
  • illusions

What is the best thing that could happen if I wrote and published this guest post on waking today? I thought through this idea a few moments before writing the guest post. The best possible scenario is me spending 20 to 25 minutes having fun inspiring people with a neat concept. Holding this best possible scenario goaded me to write the post versus skipping the guest posting opportunity.

Seeing the best scenario nudges you to live from energies of:

  • love
  • possibility
  • happy dreams
  • potential
  • lightness
  • peace

versus seeing the worst scenario and living from:

  • fear
  • scarcity
  • nightmares
  • lack
  • heaviness
  • chaos

Everything is your choice. You choose to see fabulous or fear-filled scenarios in mind.

Give yourself the gift of 10 minutes today to think about your most freeing dream. For example, perhaps you would feel most free circling the globe like my wife and I. Some folks remark how Kelli and I are living the dream. Others clearly share how they want to live a life of circling the globe as we do. The dream intent is there. What is the best thing that could happen if you stepped toward your dream of circling the globe as a full time traveler?

The best cases scenario is that not only do you become a full time globe-trotter living your liberating dreams, but that you also face, feel and release all illusory fears enslaving your consciousness as you baby step toward this freeing dream life.

Imagine that! You circle the globe down the road but more importantly, face, feel and slay all fears keeping you bound, depressed, unhappy or perhaps living in a state of perpetual mediocrity.

If this is the best case scenario you know darn well that stepping toward that dream right now is your human purpose.

So….get to stepping!

  1. Saw this on a recent viral post where an Olympian "thanked" a teacher for telling her to quit swimming because she'd never make it. Most people are afraid of trying to achieve their dreams because they fear failure and they're surrounded by people who have settled. The only ones who reach their dreams are those who give it their all. Yes, failure is real and happens, and statistically speaking that Olympian probably didn't have the greatest shot at making it by swimming. But if we don't give it our all, we'll never know if we could have succeeded.

    1. One of the most depressing aspects of life for many folks is always wondering what their life could have been if these individuals put in the effort. The way I see it, life is for the living. If we are alive we should put an ALL OUT effort to live our dreams. Thanks Don for sharing and for the opportunity.
