“Worry is the interest paid on trouble before it comes due.” — William Ralph Inge

What if I . . . etc. etc. etc.

What if?

The what if syndrome doesn’t have to be the norm.

Unfortunately, it is for some people as their X factor paradigm has them stuck in the limbic system of their brain.

Emotional intelligence coupled with the understanding of neuroplasticity paves a new road towards eradicating the what if syndrome with why not.


The journey is your prize.

You clearly know what it’s like when you’re on a thrilling ride.

It’s absolutely exhilarating.

Every cell of your mind, body, and spirit is declaring excitement and fear simultaneously.

This applies equally to your chosen goals that ultimately lead to victory if you stay the course.

Present circumstances never count so savor the wins along the road.

If you’re scared and excited then you are definitely on the right track.

Be vigilant, but don’t play it safe and do not worry, as it is a complete waste of time.

Don’t waste your valuable energy.

You need it for more important things in your life right now more than ever.

Declare your wins along the way to yourself.

Don’t tell the planet but go into your own private space and blast at the top of your lungs.

“Yes, I did it”.

Along your amazing journey, learn how to embrace what leads you to victory and let go of the stuff that does nothing for you whatsoever.

Doing this crushes the fear, anxiety, and anything else that attempts to derail you.

A former seminar participant expresses this eloquently in the following.

“Shadow the bad and your fears will take care of themselves. Showcase the good.”


Showcase the good.

Put it on display.

Put it on stage every single day and the what if syndrome will be a long, lost psychological demon.

Marsha Mercant gave it to us right between the eyes.

“The journey is the prize. If you don’t enjoy the ride, if you don’t enjoy the journey, then you’re wasting your precious time and life.”

Enjoy the ride.
