“The Worry Buster”

“As A Rule Men Worry More About What They Can’t See Than About What They Can”*

It’s an interesting paradox that the imagination has the power to manifest what we want, but it can also summon in what we don’t want.

Most of us live our lives in the realm of the imagination, fantasizing, dreaming, and worrying. When we worry that what we fear might happen, it’s as though we’re living it in the present moment because our nervous system doesn’t know the difference between what’s real and what’s vividly imagined.

“A Day Of Worry Is More Exhausting Than A Week Of Work”*

Sometimes we’re not even sure of what we’re worried about, and we try to chase it away instead of getting inside of it and dealing with it analytically. But therein lies the cure because by analyzing ourself, we can find the underlying fear that’s causing us to worry.

For example, fear of the unknown can cause us not to get started on a new project. Or because of all the hard work that it entails, fear of success can paralyze us because we don’t want to get out of our comfort zone.

That’s why when I procrastinate by working on lots of other things besides the goal that I really want to achieve, I know that something is wrong. So then I’ll sit down, grab a pen and paper, and destroy my worries with “The Worry Buster.”

There are 4 parts to “The Worry Buster.”

  1. Ask yourself – what exactly is the problem?

Fear of failure, success, rejection, or criticism are the most common ones that rear their ugly heads when you want to work on a new project or on a big goal. Figure out which one it is then…

2. Ask yourself – what’s the worst possible scenario?

If you get yourself to take action despite your fear, and you finish your project or reach your goal, what’s the worst thing that can happen? Whatever it is…

3. Decide to – accept the worst possible scenario.

When you determine that you’ll be able to handle the worst case scenario, you’ll break free from the chains of worry. Then you’ll discover that reaching your goal, no matter what the outcome, is still success in itself. Yet still…

4. Decide to – begin improving on the worse case scenario.

Read the books, study whatever you need to learn, and persevere until the worst case scenario is no longer a possibility. Then you will become the master of your fate.
