Worry is a sustained form of fear caused by indecision. Fear can be defined as Fantasized Experiences Appearing Real. Worrying about your fears only makes them worse.
Here’s the good news…
- 40% of what we worry about never happens
- 30% of worries are about things that have already happened
- 12% are needles health worries
- 10% are petty worries
- Only 8% of worries are about anything substantial
- And of that 8%:
- 50% are beyond the worrier’s control
- Which means that:
- 96% of what we worry about is irrelevant!
Clearly define your worry or concern.
Get more specific by asking: How is this actually a problem right now?
Ask yourself: What is the worst possible outcome (should the worry manifest)?
Ask yourself: Even if things turned out as bad as the worst case scenario, what positive learning would I have gained through having had that experience?
Ask yourself: How will I experience myself (how will I be) once I’ve overcome my worry and everything turned out well.
Ask yourself: As this successful person (elicited in 4.) what step can I take now to resolve that which I used to worry about?
Take that important step and continue living worry free.
You never know how far a change will go, and it will go further than you think… So choose the change that’s right for you starting today.
