The Worry Trap

When you worry, usually it is about the things you have no control over. You have no idea how this or that will really work out and you agonize over an outcome or the state of things.

“Worrying is like paying a debt that may never come due.” Will Rogers

Worrying is a waste. It doesn’t serve you or the problem that may or may not come. Instead of worrying about the things you have no control over what if you worked towards other goals you have that you have the ability to take action on, RIGHT NOW? Most of us want to be fit and healthy, financially stable, have a nice home environment, be in supportive relationships, have some creative expression, and be joyful. Where in your life could you put more effort and take your mind off the things you don’t currently have control over. Sometimes we can worry so much that we just shut down in all areas of life. Do not let worry become a trap.

Continually reach out for positive action steps and better choices. Go for a walk, have a salad, do a shoot of wheat grass, take an art class, reorganize a room in your home, go out with a friend, try a new recipe, hire a health, career, or life coach, apply for your dream job, or simply laugh your butt off at a comedy show.  Choose to be proactive in your life.

Have you ever noticed how when one area in your life begins to improve it will leak into other areas? This is the kind of momentum we want to create.

Do not let worry paralyze you. Focus on the things you can take action on in the different areas of your life to get you closer to the things you want.
