Born to Be a Badass

Jul 20, 2020

In this episode, Cynthia discusses:

  • Playing the positive or negative “what if” game.
  • The “what if” game as a useful tool in preparing for unknown and potential dangers.
  • Mental Blueprints: Imagining scenarios and possible solutions to those scenarios
  • Not dwelling on the negative “What ifs.”

Key Takeaways:

  • Create a “mental blueprint” or programming for your brain that helps you to react more quickly and work through the fight, flight, or freeze modes. You freeze when you have no blueprint.
  • Work through “What ifs” that you are most likely to encounter or deal with in multiple situations and all the variables that may occur.
  • Playing “what if” is a beneficial way to prepare for things, instead of thinking about all the things that could go wrong.
  • Let the “what if” game guide you and help you address concerns and questions you may have.
