Day 17: Transform Stress into Courage and Confidence

Today I want to share one of my favorite life hacks for women and stress relief techniques with you.

It’s something I use regularly that never fails to bring things back in perspective and makes me take action.

It’s simple, but very powerful.

Here’s what you do:

Life Hacks For Women: Ask yourself “What’s The Worst That Could Happen?”

Sit down and really put some thought into this.

Imagine everything and anything that could possibly go wrong. Use your imagination and go all out.

It may seem counterproductive at first, but there’s a method to the madness with this life hack for women.

When you lay it all out, you force yourself to face the worst possible outcome.

One important reason why this simple little mental exercise is important is that it makes you realize that the worst outcome isn’t all that bad.  It may actually be something you could live with.

Just as important is that you discover that this “horrible” outcome isn’t terribly likely.life hacks for women

While you’re mulling things over, chances are that you remember all the things you have to gain from taking action.

Even if everything doesn’t go perfect, chances are that you’ll get something out of taking the risk to do something.

This realization alone will give you a boost of confidence, or at least the energy and desire to do something.

You may be wondering why imagining the worst possible outcome is such a good confidence and courage strategy.

Here’s why it works:

We’re More Scared Of The Unknown Than The Worst Possible Scenario

On a psychological level, there’s nothing we fear more than the unknown.

That is why this is one of the best life hacks for women and why it works so well.

It’s a super effective strategy.

By thinking about and imagining the worst possible outcome we take away the element of the unknown. When that happens things suddenly don’t look nearly as bad anymore.

We know what we’re facing.

We know what it will take to overcome the obstacle or dig ourselves back out of the hole.

That makes it easier to start to come up with an action plan for recovery. We do this all the time when something bad or unexpected happens.

Why not tap into the same idea to gain the courage to “try it anyway”?

That’s your stress hack for today.

Whenever you try to talk yourself out of doing something because of an undefined fear, or when you’re simply reluctant to do something, take some action or try something new, ask yourself “what’s the worst that could happen”?!!

Then make your peace with that worst case outcome and go do it anyway.

You’ll be pleasantly surprised to find how well this works.

  1. I actually do this and it works!

    1. My deepest desire is to quit all work and focus solely on my gardening blog.
    The worst thing that could happen is we could not pay our bills.

    2. My fear of not being able to pay all our bills is what holds me back from giving up all other paid work.

    3. What am I doing about it? Spending time on my blog every single day-even if it is just a small action.

    1. Hi Amy,

      Thanks for your comments.
      Not being able to pay your bills would be a very serious thing and should certainly hold you back from quitting all paid work.

      In addition to working on your blog in small bits while keeping your paid work, would other sources of income work for you? For instance, do you have an empty room in your house that you could rent? That’s what I do right now and its a BIG help to pay the bills.
