Are you asking yourself, “What’s the best that can happen?”

Lately- actually pretty much all the time- you go into meetings and you have a conversation (in business, your wife, your kids)…you think of all possibilities, the downside, the worst-case scenario. 

I’m a victim of that thinking, for sure. At least I had been because I have decided to change my ways. Every conversation I step into I say, “What’s the most I can get out of this conversation. What is the best-case scenario? What is the best result that I can hope for from everything I do?”

I love hoops and when I go out on the court, I think only about winning, about getting the shot to fall in the hoop. I’m going out there and worrying only about what the best outcome is.

Are you thinking, “What’s the best possible outcome?” You can’t completely ignore all the possibilities, both positive and negative, but I’m saying that looking at the positive is a good starting point. You have an average of 60,000 thoughts a day, so it may seem easy to sink into a negative way of thinking. But, you let that happen.

Here’s an example: when I write this blog and I’m hoping that a lot of people read it, the best possible outcome is somebody may change the way they approach something today. Then, the even better outcome is having that person then pass along the blog to someone else.

It’s like my friend Harvey Mackay says, “Optimism is the first step to success.”

  • My purpose out here today is to share this article to the world about how Doctor Odunga helped me in getting back my EX-boyfriend who broke up with me 4 months ago. I tried all I could to make him see reasons with me so that we can continue our relationship but he denied me. Thank God for giving me the thought of going into the internet for help, I searched properly and I saw different reviews of Doctor Odunga and I insisted on giving it a try by contacting him via what’s app on (+2348167159012). He gave me reason to live again and he prepared a spell and told me that my Ex-boyfriend will come back to me within 28 hours. Can you believe it, my EX-boyfriend came back to me and our wedding will be held Soon. Contact him now!!! if you need any help. Email: and he does a lot of spells. Once again i want to say am very grateful for your help
