Worry is the destroyer of dreams. We live in a society that thrives on worry. Worry is just another form of ego, pride, and need for control. In the spirit of full disclosure, I was probably a number1worrier in my early years. How’s that for an ego trip? I would worry just about everything and everybody.
I'm not sure when it happened, but as I was preparing to write this I realized I don’t worry anymore and haven’t for some time. Even during the 2008 recession, when all the possessions we had accumulated were in jeopardy of being taken away from us, I didn’t worry. I began to work the SOAR Six-step program. I ignored my potential fear and set out to achieve my desired outcome; to salvage what we had and build to a better tomorrow. I was fortunate to know friends and business associates within my network who were willing to give me an opportunity to work my plan. I firmly believe if I had chosen to worry rather than taking realistic steps to overcome the obstacles that I perceived were before me, we would not have been as fortunate as we are today.
Are worries getting in the way of your attaining your goals and dreams? What if you were to stop worrying and do the next right thing? And, then do the next right thing and so on. Why don’t you try it for a while? See if it makes a difference in the way you approach life.
What do you do with your worries? You give them away by sharing your needs with others who can help you. Some of us just give them to a supreme being and trust that the guidance we get will keep us focused on the task at hand without having to worry about the tasks ahead of us.
