Your brain is a sucker for logic.
If you can consciously prove that something is untrue or wrong, your mind will let it go.
Anxiety is no different.
Your brain thinks that by freaking out about the potential of some unknown future that you will somehow be better prepared to survive the dangers that may threaten your very existence.
Now laugh along with me as you see this is the most counter-productive thing in the world.
By worrying about some future problem that may or may not happen, you are sacrificing this moment, right now.
And this moment is literally the only place in the world where you can create anything.
You can create growth. You can create solutions. You can create changes.
You can create happiness, hope, and humility.
This moment is the only place you can CHOOSE to do something that moves you towards the goals that amplify your ability to live life.
Meaning that this moment is the ONLY place you can embrace, honor and optimize your ability to exist…
Yet you are PERMANENTLY pouring it down the drain for the sake of protecting yourself from some future event that most likely will never happen.
You are literally trying to ‘save’ your existence by wasting it.
So next time you catch yourself being overwhelmed by fears, doubts and ‘what-if’s, call bull-shit on your brain.
And become conscious that you are working against yourself.
Do this enough times, and you’ll gain the upper hand over anxiety, thus freeing yourself to spend more time creating the life you deserve and less time paralyzing yourself over some future you can’t predict.
And if. you want to learn more nifty ways to maximize your mindset to rise above other fears, doubts, and anxieties?
