No reason to worry

Though there will always be things to worry about, there is never any good reason to worry. For worry accomplishes nothing positive. Not only does worry waste your time and drain your energy. It also keeps you focused on the negative aspects of life, and gives those negative things more power.

Sure, there are things that trouble you, things that need to be changed. Rather than worrying about them, go to work on them. You’ll never completely eliminate all the possible things about which to worry. Yet you can completely eliminate worry itself.

Try thinking of something that troubles you, and then let yourself peacefully accept it in the moment. Know that your positive thoughts and actions are the best way to make it better.

Stop worrying about life and start living it with power and positive purpose. You’ll be amazed at the difference it can make.
