Creative energy

Worry is a misuse of your amazing creative energy. Think of what would happen if instead of wasting it on worry, you used all that creative energy to imagine positive outcomes in your life.

There is no limit to what you can imagine, and there are no restrictions on the kinds of things you can imagine. Your imagination is filled with precisely the things you choose to imagine.

If you have nothing better to imagine, it can be much too easy to imagine all sorts of disastrous scenarios. But it doesn’t have to be that way.

With just a little bit of initiative you can plant positive and empowering seeds in your imagination. And in the fertile realm of your powerful imagination, those seeds will grow ever stronger in their beneficial influence.

Even a negative experience can set off a positive chain of thoughts in your imagination, when you so choose. It’s really just as easy and realistic to imagine solving a problem as it is to worry about being overwhelmed by that problem.

When you feel worry coming on, always remember that you have another choice. As long as you’re imagining elaborate scenarios, you might as well imagine the very best.
