Worry is a waste, and more than that, it is destructive. Because worry prevents other, more positive and effective thinking.

Yes, you have problems, but you don’t have to let them overwhelm your thinking. Yes, you have concerns about the future, and you also have the ability to deal with them.

Feeling sorry for yourself focuses your mind on limitation, weakness and despair. There is nothing useful in doing that.

No matter what your situation, you can choose to think anything, literally anything. So choose to think thoughts of strength, progress, empowerment.

Acknowledge the problem, and also acknowledge all the good things you have going for you. Then face forward, with energy and confidence.

You have the opportunity to make a positive difference, so don’t let that opportunity slip by. Grab this time now, free of worry, filled with clear, positive thoughts, and act to make life better.
