One of the most powerful declaratives/questions is, So what? When you hit a bump in the road or face a challenge, ask yourself, So what?
So what would happen if I chose to do this?
So what would happen if that choice is not the best choice?
So what would happen if someone disapproved of my choice?
So what would happen if I didn’t get the results I intended?
So what is next?
When you take most any situation and break it down by asking the question, So what?, you begin to dive deeper and deeper until you find the root. Once there, it is almost like planting a fresh seed. From that moment, it is up to you to nurture and grow the planted seed. It is your leadership and commitment that harvests the results. No one else can get the results from that seed that you can.
As you take your first step on your journey to creating success, ask the So what question. Keep asking that question to each response and soon you discover your visualization for your journey. Asking So what may not be easy, but it is a simple concept that requires consistency, patience, and calmness.
I am encouraging you to adopt a certain attitude as you encounter naysayers and critics. I call this the SW(4) principle. Multiplied out, you have SWSWSWSW which is an acronym for Some Will, Some Won’t, So What?, Someone’s Waiting! Basically, this implies that some people are going to be supportive and some are not. So What? Someone is waiting who is going to be inspired by your journey.
There is that So what? Keep asking yourself So what? The outcome is a stronger and more determined you.
When was the last time you asked, So what?
