Worst-Case Scenario


To let go of anxiety about the future, fully picture your worst-case scenario.

Say you lost your job, family, and everything but the clothes on your back, what would you do?

OK, maybe right now parts of you are panicking a bit. "I don't want to be homeless!" Release those voices... and truly ask yourself, what would you do?

You could probably crash on a friend's couch for a while, pick up a quick wage job, start pitching new companies with the value creation mindset, and start to get back on track.

Your mindset is everything.
It's your most valuable asset.
Never forget that.

No matter where you're at right now....it's gonna be okay. Breathe, and take the next step.
