fear and strength

Yes, you can transform worry into helpful energy with a small shift of perspective.

And today, I want to help you make just such a shift.

Indeed, savoring your life becomes so much easier as you learn the skill of introducing simple attitude adjustments to your day.

How to transform worry:

Life can be challenging, and these days, there’s a lot to worry about.

When you feel yourself slipping into a rut of fear, anxiety, or negativity, something as easy as pausing and asking yourself the right question will tickle your mind into exploring a fresh, new approach. 

As you practice and get comfortable with this skill, I think you will be amazed at how quickly and significantly you can shift your own perspective.

Here’s an example:

Reflect on how you react when an unfamiliar challenge pops up. Do you automatically brace yourself? That’s a frequent, natural response for many.

But consider this: Tensing your body inhibits your creativity, too.

That’s because, just as fear freezes your body, it also calcifies your options. Anxiety contributes to a simplistic either/or scarcity mentality. And that’s definitely not the best mindset for creative thinking.

Fear makes everything more difficult.

So you can see how, when fear takes the driver’s seat, you’ll find it harder to:

  • Prioritize,
  • Solve problems and make decisions, and
  • Keep to a healthy schedule.

Transform worry today…

You can swiftly overcome this natural tendency with another natural impulse — curiosity. Curiosity is one of the great antidotes to fear and provides the perfect climate for learning. 

Mobilizing your curiosity also transforms you in a way. You stop focusing self-consciously on the you-who-doesn’t-know and shift into the you-who-is-eager-to-figure-it-out.

So, any time you notice yourself apprehensively thinking, “What if … ?” try replacing that with “I wonder what … ?” As you regain your inner balance with this simple question, you will find it much easier to ride the new wave of change with smart time choices.
