Worthless Worry

A new super-flu is coming, terrorists are regrouping… on and on it goes.

If you take all of this stuff seriously, it’s likely that you’ll never go out, never eat, never travel, or never take any kind of risk at all. Worry can rob you of much, but the fact is this – worry makes no sense at all.

Things never happen the way you imagine. When you worry, you are predicting the future. You are saying ‘I know that things will turn out badly.’ But this just isn’t the case. You have no idea how the future is going to turn out, except to say that it will not be what you think it will be. So why worry?

Worry means you give away your power. Worry robs you of your power to be proactive. The truth is that you are in control and you can choose how to react to situations, so stop choosing to give that power away so easily and so unconsciously!
