Why not you? In this blog post, I wanted to give you the impeccable reasoning behind the question, why not you?
It is my greatest dream to write a book that will make an impact on a lot of people. And I’ve decided that the title of my first book will be, “Why not you?”.
“Why”, you ask?
“Because why not?”
Think about this for a second. Sometimes, when you see something that you want to do. Something that you’re really interested in. The first thing you do is talk yourself out of it.
You may not agree with me, but let me give you an example.
Seeing beautiful pictures on social media. This gives you the desire to travel there too. Yet, the first thing that comes to mind is, “I don’t have the money”. You just talked yourself out of it.
Robert Kiyosaki explained the difference between a winner and loser mindset. The winner mindset finds out a way to solve the problem. The loser mindset, states the problem and stops there. A little harsh but sometimes, we do need some tough love.
So, using the same example above, if you wanted to travel, “why not?”
You are probably rolling your eyes at me as you read this. But let me explain with the following reasons below.
The reasoning behind the question, “Why not You?”
- You have a burning desire to do it, why not you?
- You’re capable of doing it
- Your will to learn and take action will help you
- Other people have the same fears, yet still, did it, so why not you?
You have a burning desire to do it
Going back to the same example above, you have a burning desire to travel.
Yes, yes, I get it, money is the problem. But you can save money though right?
In my blog post, “You are what you are meant to be”, I used Eleanor Rooseve’ts words. “No one can make you feel inferior without your consent”. So, in that sense, if you are letting money stop you from doing what you want to do. Then you are giving it consent to make you feel inferior.
Knowing you, you are more capable than that. This leads us to the next reason behind the question, “why not you?”
You’re capable of doing it
Like me, I am confident that you know within you that you are capable. And you can apply this to any aspect of your life. You don’t give yourself enough credit though.
I wanted you to stop for a second and reflect on every hardship. Every struggle. Even the problems that you never thought you will never get out of. You got through them. Think about that. If you were capable of going through those problems, struggles, and trials. What is different from what you are facing now? It’s just another problem, right?
I saw this movie yesterday called, The Grayman on Netflix. Ryan Gosling was the main actor there, as a trained assassin. He used the phrase, “It’s just another Thursday”, to give Claire (actress in the movie), assurance that everything will be okay. An impeccable mindset to have before he faces his opponent.
I plan to apply that in my life whenever I feel stuck. It’s just another Thursday. Just like, it’s just a regular day. Then figure out how to solve the problem.
And guess what? YOU.CAN.TOO!
You are capable! So, why not you?
Your will to learn and take action will help you
Again, why not you?
“I don’t know how,” you say.
Yes, I know, you may not see the path now, but it’s okay.
One thing I learned in my journey is, that I don’t have to have all the answers.
And I would like to let you in on a secret. Part of manifestation is co-creation. If you believe in God, the universe, or whatever faith you have. You co-create.
I co-create with my God. I take action based on what I can. And my will to learn. Now the path is my God’s part of co-creating. He leads the way.
So, in your scenario, I recommend using this concept. Learn as much as you can. Take action to your capabilities. And whatever is unclear right now. Ask for guidance.
Other people have the same fears, yet still, did it, so why not you?
There is probably at some point of you reading this post where your mind is screaming. Saying, “No, Ernie, you don’t understand.”
The people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.-Steve Jobs
I may not understand what your mind is telling you right now. But here is what I know. Those voices in your head. Those are what we call, “False evidence appearing real”, a.k.a. FEAR.
And to tell you the truth, we all have it. Again, as I said, before you can even come up with a solution to taking action, you have talked yourself out of it. That is your fear.
Lisa Nichols shared in one of her speeches that she was given the response by one of her clients and said, “I’ve always been this way.” And her response was, “How is that working out for you?” And that hit me.
We can make that comment, but how is our mindset? How is our decision towards the things that we desire to do working out for us?
If your answer is, that it’s not working out. Then, take action. Make a change. Give yourself permission to try!
Other people who had made it did it scared. Why not you?
Now, the intention of this blog post is to empower you. To show you that you have options. Help you realize that you are capable. But at the end of the day, when all the noise is gone.
Reflect and ask yourself, “Why not me?”
