Are you a victim? You are if you worry . . .
It makes sense, doesn't it? When you worry, you become a victim of worry.
What is worry? Worry is a habit. Nothing else. Just a habit, and a bad one at that.
BUT, like a lot of bad habits, it's an unhealthy habit. It causes you stress and it's destructive -- it destroys your health. Worry is never good. You can be "concerned". You can "work" on the project. You can have faith that things will work out. But you cannot worry.
Just imagine that every time you worry, a teeny, tiny cell in your body discolors. When you have several of them discolored and clinging together, they cause blockages. When the blockages are big enough, they cause disease and destroy the good cells
Let's go back to the fact that worry is nothing more than a habit. It's a habit to worry, it's not something you were born with, it's something you learned, lots of times from your parents, your peers, your teachers.
How do you change?
You neutralize your mind -- a neutralized mind can't hold worrisome thoughts. You make a habit of neutralizing your mind just before you go to bed and right after you wake up, and, again, in the middle of the day.
There are many ways to neutralize your mind. Instead of worrying, you think about someone or something you love. Or sing a song, sometimes at the threat of breaking the sound barrier. <grin> Or get creative and do something you love. Or do however many push-ups it takes to wear you out. Whatever works for you, do at least 3 times a day, then whenever you start to worry, do it again. Make it a habit to immediately go into any of the above . . . instead of worrying.
Habits like worrying can't accumulate if the thought that causes them is neutralized daily!
Every time you go through the process, finish up with an affirmation that you like. An affirmation could be "I am so happy my mind is clear, my health is better and better, my life is improving." Or, "My mind is full of love, compassion, forgiveness, and understanding." (Remember, when you think good thoughts, there is no room for fear, anxiety, hatred, and lack.) Or, "I now release the pattern in my consciousness that is creating resistance to my good." Or pick from the ones you will find here: http://www.tameyourbrain.com/goodthoughts.htm
Another good thing to do is walk for at least 10 minutes as you say the above, over and over.
Worry causes you to doubt your abilities as a parent, as a leader, as a person. It's hard to succeed when you've convinced yourself that you can't do something because "something" might happen that makes you fail, makes you inferior.
Here are two ways of working with worry:
Give a successful person and an unsuccessful person something to "worry" about.
The successful person will work until he or she finds an answer. The unsuccessful one will get stressed out. Which one do you want to be?
If you didn't worry, you would proceed with confidence, wouldn't you?
Make your decision, today, to stop the worry habit and start taking control of your life.
