However, worry itself is not as difficult to overcome as you may think.
It has been established that 85 percent of what people worry about never happens.
And the other 15 percent that did happen, about 80 percent of those individuals discovered that they could handle whatever came up or they learned a lesson they otherwise would not even be aware of.
The numbers then go this way: 97 percent of what you worry about is not much more than your fearful mind punishing you!!!
That’s why there is a saying that goes something like this: 99 percent of what you worry about never happens.
Your mindset is fractured. Your worrying, your exaggerations about things, your misperceptions are crushing you.
Is this decision to worry about any and everything your first choice, your go-to place? Then you have a problem that needs a solution and it is not about worrying.
When you spend your time worrying, the stress hormones shrink your brain, lower your IQ, make you prone to heart disease, and cancer as well as premature aging. There’s more, but why worry about it.
When you find that your worrying leads to no outcomes, plus or minus, then you get angry. Anger at least has some basis in reality. How does anger work for you? Does anger help you get what you want?
If you want to live a happier and healthier life, find something else to fill your time, just don’t choose worry. There is no payoff, no benefit to worrying.
Make that decision to stop worrying. Create a new road in your brain. Neuroplasticity is real and you can change your brain.
