I have heard a lot of "ifs" in my life. In fact I have myself used this word again and again until I realized its destructive power.
If I get good marks, I will join the best college.
If I achieve my target, I will get a lot of incentive
If my business is successful, I will earn my first million dollars
The list can go on and on---
If is very destructive. You are programming yourself for failure because there is an element of doubt in it. You need to substitute "if" with "when".

Not only do we program ourselves with "if" we also use this word extensively with others too. We need to be careful so that we are not programmed by others through the use of the word"if".
Remember IF= doubt. WHEN=certainty
Always use "when"!
