Stop worry

What is worry? Worry is intensely visualizing and imagining the reality in your life of something you fear.

And as such, worry can be terribly debilitating. It can often serve to bring about whatever it desires to avoid.

When you feel worry about to overtake you, stop. Stop that worry in its tracks by considering all you have to be thankful for, all the good things you’ve done, and all you are able to do.

Focus your thoughts on the capabilities and opportunities and possibilities you now have for creating meaningful value. Feel the extent of your power and effectiveness before you feel any fear.

Certainly it is useful and prudent to anticipate and prepare for the problems that may come your way. Yet it is far better to do so from a position of strength rather than mired in the helplessness of worry.

Look confidently forward and know that you can deal with whatever may come. Then get busy bringing the best you can imagine to life.
