How To Instantly Stop Worrying

February 14, 2012

Definition: Worry

(Verb) Give way to anxiety or unease; allow one’s mind to dwell on difficulty or troubles.

 (Noun) A state of anxiety or uncertainty over actual or potential problems.

Worrying is without question one of the most dangerous things that you can do to yourself.

That’s right, worrying is something that you do to yourself.  So, if you have ever accused someone else of making you worried, you have blamed the wrong person.

Anxiety is a part of life. It’s a natural byproduct of having a brain that is capable of considering the future. A little anxiety is good, even necessary, and a great motivator to get us to plan well and perform.

Yet, too much anxiety can be crippling. It can literally kill you!

I believe that the disabling effect caused by worry is the result of something that goes on in our mind when faced with the unknown.

The only cure for worry is to take ACTION.

Action immediately begins reducing worry.

Inaction makes worry grow.

In practical terms here’s what to do immediately when you begin to feel your anxiety growing.

Firstly, write down what you are anxious about.

Next, identify the worst possible outcome if this situation was to continue. When you do this you instantly turn the unknown into the known, and immediately begin to relax.

Then, ask yourself whether there is anything you can do to change the outcome.

If the answer is NO, you will immediately begin to accept the situation because you already know the outcome.

If the answer is YES, begin thinking about what steps you need to take and whose help you need to change the situation.

Finally, focus on completing each step until your issue is completely resolved.

It really is simple to free yourself once and for all from the disease of worrying. Okay, okay, you will have to practise a little!

Do you need help to resolve a situation that is worrying you in your retail business?

What are you waiting for?
