If I could only go back in time, I’d do that differently.

If I could only go back to that night and speak to that woman that I was attracted to.

If I only got her phone number. If I only gave him my phone number.

If I only took that job and not this one.

We love to play the Game of If. The problem is in life, you really can’t play the Game of If because If will never happen.

We spend a lot of time playing the Game of If. We spend a lot of time thinking about the Game of If. But in reality, all we have is our choices. We made that decision to choose whatever we chose at that moment. We didn’t get that phone number due to whatever issues we had inside our head. We took another job because we didn’t take this other job and if we took the other job, we would have been rich, but we’re not.

Don’t play the Game of If, because you can do that with every decision you make. Learn from the Game of If. Learn from some of the If mistakes so that way you don’t repeat them, so you don’t have to say, if I only told her how I really felt that night, I wouldn’t be in this situation. If I only took that job. How about the next time a situation of If comes up, you think back? You need to think through the decision, and you start trusting yourself a little bit more.

Dating Is A Game

I found that when we play the Game of If, we’re doing so because we don’t trust ourselves 100 percent in a situation. We don’t listen to our gut and what our gut is really telling us. So we throw the towel down in there and we play that Game of If.

Let’s eliminate the Game of If from all our lives. When you listen to your gut, and stick with it, you’ll feel 100 percent comfortable because you won’t backtrack, dwell and obsess over the decision, and it won’t matter how it works out.
