Advice is what we ask for when we already know the answer but wish we didn't.

Worry free

Wouldn’t it be great to have a day without worries? Just imagine how creative, productive and effective you could be if you were not plagued with constant, nagging worries.

The fact is, you can have a day without worries every day. Worry is not a foregone conclusion, it is simply one of many ways in which you can choose to respond to your circumstances.

The thing about worry is, it exacts a heavy price but it doesn’t accomplish anything. And it is completely unnecessary.

Certainly there are things that will make you concerned. Certainly you must be adequately prepared for the reality of your situation. Yet there is never any use in worrying. When you catch yourself starting to worry, stop. Quickly switch your energy to something else. Make plans, consider the possibilities, take action, and leave your worries behind. It will make an enormous positive difference.
