You can clutch the past so tightly to your chest that it leaves your arms too full to embrace the present.

No worry

Here’s a simple, easy way to make an immediate and profound improvement in the quality of your life. Stop worrying.

The next time you catch yourself wrapping your mind around a worry, choose to let that worry fall completely away. Notice how much more positive and effective you suddenly are.

Worry poisons your thoughts and keeps life’s best opportunities hidden from you. Worry actually increases the power and influence of those undesirable things you worry about.

Certainly it’s important to look clearly and realistically at life’s dangers, problems and challenges. Yet there is nothing to be gained by worrying about them.

Choose to replace each negative worry with positive action. Instead of looking down, pick yourself up and move forward.

Every moment is filled with countless opportunities to create lasting value. Stop worrying, and start living with richness, purpose and real joy.

— Ralph Marston
