3 Steps to Overcome Your Worry

Instead of using our imagination to dream a beautiful future, we use it to manufacture nightmares. When we are full of anxiety, two things happen: one, our perceptions of reality are distorted and two, we simply do not see options that would be available to us if we were full of faith and confidence.

The following three things very helpful in effectively dealing with worry.

1-Prepare for the worst, but expect the best. Whatever you are worrying about, make sure you are clear on what you believe is the worst thing that could happen in your "worry scenario". Then prepare for it. Don't expect it to happen, but know all the angles and the worst case scenarios.

2-Reprogram your negative thinking patterns. This is not easy, but with consistent practice, it can be done. There is always something to worry about. The challenge is to replace worrying about problems with thinking about solutions.

3-Keep your attention anchored in the present. One of the secrets of overcoming worry is to keep your mind and body in the same time zone. Almost all emotional pain is caused by time travel-either built, regret and anger from the past, or fear and anxiety about the future. When you keep your attention anchored in the present, you can start to break the worry habit.

The images and messages you run through your mind today will profoundly influence the outcomes you get in the future. For example, if you really want to get something done, you'll find the money to make it happen.

But as soon as you worry you won't have enough money to pay for a new project or expansion of your business, you've just taken the first step to killing it. So I urge you to think about these three steps and try to integrate them into your everyday thinking-you will soon find yourself on your way to achieving your vision!
