What if, it’s what you think you know, that’s actually holding you back?

Now what has a picture of cakes got to do with the title of this blog?

Well, let me tell you a story and all will become clear.

I was out for dinner recently with a friend. The lovely waiter was really enthusiastic that we should try a particular a desert, it was like a tapas of deserts. His enthusiasm was infectious and I was tempted – except, I didn’t like any of the deserts.

Or should I say, that somewhere in my past I had decided I didn’t like any of the deserts.

So what did we do?

We ordered the deserts.

Just to conduct a curious experiment.

Instead of eating them from the point of view ‘I don’t like these’ instead I asked the question,

‘I wonder what these will taste like?’

And you know what, they truly were awesome!

How much fun was it proving myself wrong?

A lot.

Why am I sharing this with you?

Well, it made me wonder.

When was the last time you questioned what it is you think you know?

What is it that you’ve decided that you know?

What do you no longer question?

Your point of view always creates your reality.

Change your point of view.

Change your reality.

Can it really be that simple?


What if, what you are thinking today, is totally out of date with who you are right here and now?

What have you decided about your body, your relationship, a person in your life or your business?

What if you questioned what it is you think you know?

What space could that create?

What else would be possible?

Just asking.

Play with it.

Just for fun. Who knows what could happen.

When you have decided that something is so, you are creating your life and your experience from the past.

Fine if you like what you are creating – not so smart if you don’t.

It would be like running a new computer with really old software. Why would you do that? It wouldn’t be as productive or powerful or perhaps it wouldn’t even work.

Like what I am saying, but not so sure where to begin. Well here are a few questions to get you started.

What cannot I not see about this?

What else is possible here that I haven’t considered?

What if I was wrong?

I wonder what this will be like?

I wonder how much fun I could have here?


Let me know how you get on playing with these questions and what shows up for you – you never know you might just encourage someone else to give it a go!
