S:1358 Distinction: What If? vs. What Is

(Distinctions are subtleties of language that, when gotten, cause a shift in a belief, behavior, value or attitude.)


A mistake many make is to be bound by What Is. They think and feel their current reality, including the dramas of the path to here, are shackles keeping them from having a better tomorrow.

Highly successful people process differently. They dream of What If? and make plans. They act. They get feedback and make adjustments.

And one day they look back on their old What Is’s and see how far they’ve come.


Coaching Point: What is one powerful What If? you had which is now a What Is?
