Anxious, Much?

Anxiety is experiencing failure in advance.

Seth Godin

Why do we do it to ourselves?

Why do we constantly undermine our efforts?

Why do we keep beating ourselves up over something that may never happen?

We likely won’t ever experience the horrible things we’re worried about. We may never have to worry about all those bad things happening. Things likely will never come crashing down around us.

Yet, we still spend our valuable time being anxious. We still freak out about stuff. We still can’t stop worrying.

If we stop for a minute and really think about it, the odds are pretty good (or at least as good) that things will turn out OK. So, why don’t we spend our time thinking about how great things are going to be?

Think about how well we’ll do.

Think about how great we’ll feel.

Think about all of our success.

If we take a moment to think about all the good things that could happen, instead of dwelling on the bad things that likely will never come to pass, we’d be in a much better place.

And a whole lot less anxious.
