WEEK 4 MAY 2012
No matter your profession, your sport, or your circumstances, we all experience worry and fear at different times of our lives, and for some, it is part of their daily thinking! However, nearly everything we worry about does not happen. Would you pay interest in advance on a house you will never own? Of course not, and yet many invest so much time and energy keeping alive their fears and worries, most of which never happen.
UNDERSTANDING YOUR FEARS AND WORRIES
Worrying is simply a misuse of all your creative imagination within you.
Fear hinders us and prevents full involvement with the experiences we are given to grow on.
When you judge others, you are revealing your own fears and prejudices.
One reason people never attempt new things is their fear of failure.
You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience by which you really stop to look fear in the face. Eleanor Roosevelt
The opposite of fear is the belief of a positive future. Create it in your own mind. See it, feel it. Dream about it. Create the action plans and make it happen. Ann Quinn
Ask yourself this question:”Will this matter a year from now?” Richard Carlson, ‘Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff’
And don’t worry. Be happy!
