How You Should Use "What If" Instead

We tend to only use "what if" when looking in the past at things we wish we could change.

What if I'd given my best and prepared?

What if I hadn't left that relationship?

What if I'd just won the lottery?

We tend to fill "what if" with regret and sadness about things behind us that we can't control. That's a devastating way to use "what if" - and I might argue if that's the only way you use it, to eliminate it entirely from your vocabulary.

But as David Goggins points out, we can use "what if" in a very powerful, positive way.
