Do you live in fear? Do you worry about things you have no control over? Do you avoid trying new things for fear you might fail?
I don't any more. I'm not sure why that is, but I really don't worry too much about anything. I have concern for certain things...like health and my family, but I don't stop living because I fear something bad is going to happen.
Fear can stop you dead in your tracks. It doesn't even have to be something big that you are fearing...it can be something small. I'm not saying we should just run all over the place never thinking things through. We should always think things through before making decisions...I'm talking about thinking things through and always coming up with the same conclusion....no, I can't do that because it will never work...I tried something like that before and failed so I better not try it again...my friend told me I shouldn't do that...the economy is going to get worse...what if I lose my job....I'll never be able to do that...my mom told me no way so I won't do it....I'm sure I'll fail.......and on and on and on.
You know what...if you think you will fail...by golly...you will! If you never try, how will you know?
I'm not afraid to try things and I do not fear failure. Failure only means that I didn't do it right or it truly was not the right thing for me and in my heart I knew that...therefore I didn't put forth the effort required to be a success.
How about you? Do you try a lot of different things? Do you take chances? Do you fear things you can't control?
Are some people just natural worriers? Is that even possible? Can those people that worry their lives away change?
I would love a discussion on this topic. What do you think?
