A facebook question recently asked for responses in regards to Pink taking her baby for a hike five days after birth. My response as always was,
I had paid for a three day seminar for women on wealth building and positive mindset when I was pregnant with Kalyra. I knew I was running a risk as the conference was on 10 days before my due date.
If she held on I would be okay; I’d just be heavily pregnant and if my waters broke then it wasn’t a problem I couldn’t handle.
But, of course, Kalyra has her own little agenda going and she came two weeks early. This meant the conference was on when I had suddenly become a mother to this beautiful little baby that I had no idea what to do with.
I had a really easy and healthy pregnancy. I’m not sure that I could say labour was easy, but better than other stories I had heard. Kalyra was doing well and I felt fantastic.
So when people thought I was absolutely crazy to go to this three day seminar with Kalyra my response was “Why not?”
I felt fine about it, so Why not?
We went, she slept in my arms the whole time. When she was hungry or became unsettled (which was rare) I walked outside with her for a little bit. We had a wonderful time, I learned a lot and she was surrounded by the love and positive energy of 400 women.
For three days she absorbed this information on how to build wealth, manage money, strive for your dreams, think positive thoughts and be happy.
I’ve never regretted it and would do it again in a heartbeat.
These two simple words can bring you so much power.
There are so many reasons why you shouldn’t do something. Usually these reasons are things that other people tell you.
The problem is that other people have no idea what you are capable of. They are basing your decisions on their experiences, capabilities and view points of the world.
They have no idea of how you think ,what you can do and what you believe.
When you listen to why you can’t do something, the cracks will begin to show and begin to shatter your dreams away.
All you need to do now is when you state your dreams and desires, is follow it up with a simple Why not?
This opens your mind to the possibilities, the positives, the opportunities and allows your strengths to rise to the surface to do this.
Sometimes your “why not” might fall into a massive failure. But, this is life. No one is perfect. Everyone fails somewhere. All you need to do is turn the failures into lessons and move forward. No big deal.
That is why when someone tells me what they want to do with their life, my response is always.
“Sounds great! Why not?”
It’s not my place to tell them they can’t. It’s my place to help them believe that anything is possible.
