Worrying is a cunny friend. It makes you think you are being creative towards thinking yourself out of your challenges while you are actually doing nothing to help yourself.  It can be likened to paying a debt that you do not owe.

More damage is done by worrying than by what is being worried about. This is because 90 percent of all worries never come to pass. Over the years, I have made it a deliberate point not to worry. If something happens at work or at home that would constitute a worry, I have learned to address the potential worry and say, “I’m going to wait to worry.” Then when I objectively and realistically address the issue, the “obvious” need for worrying goes away.

Here are a few reasons why you should not be given to worry, because you will be fully indulging in:


It is a downward spiral that focuses on the negative and why things cannot be done versus why things can be done. It is a sinkhole, a debilitating attitude, and a terrible habit.


Capable people who worry are rendered incapable of accomplishing their intended goal. Worry makes you peck around on the ground like a chicken when you were intended to soar like an eagle.


People who worry are not being cautious or thinking things over; they are simply scared. Running scared is the enemy of success, peace, contentment, happiness, joy, and laughter.

No spark

The excitement is gone. Worry lets the air out of all you do, draining the fun and excitement from everything.

No creativity

The freedom to be creative is squelched by worry. You simply cannot excel to your full potential when worry controls your thoughts.

Worry is certainly not of the things a wise woman would want to invest in. You need that channel for a more profitable thing.
