There’s a quote that says “worry is just negative goal setting”. As much as we may not want to admit it, the quote makes sense! How many times have you worried that something wasn’t going to work out, and then felt justified in that belief when things fell apart? It makes us wonder: did things not work out because they were never going to, or was it because we spent so much of our time and energy worrying that it never would?
If you’ve studied the law of attraction, you know that we attract what we are. Does that mean that if we’re constantly worrying, we’ll attract more things to worry about? If you believe in the universal laws, then you believe that what we focus on manifests itself into reality. That’s why we do affirmations, visualization and vision boards. We do these things to focus our energy on what we want to attract into our lives, not on those things we want to stay away from.
If you want to manifest a better job, you focus on the things you want in that new job, not on the things you’re trying to avoid. It’s the same principle whether you want a new car or a new relationship. Focusing on what you don’t want is pretty likely to get you more of the same, even if it comes in a new company, car, or person. So if we know that focusing our energy on what we don’t want isn’t going to get us any further, what purpose does worrying serve?
It doesn’t provide solutions to the problem; it can however, make us want to curl up under the covers and hide! Once we understand that we are prepared tomake acommitment to releasing this habit of worry because we know that it doesn’t serve us AT ALL! Instead, let’s focus on coming up with solutions whenever I run into challenges. I’m not going to worry about what couldhappen, but focus on what I want to happen and commit to doing what I can to make it so.
The reality is that worrying is a big waste of time. It accomplishes nothing, stresses us out and can make us sick. Instead of spending time worrying about all that could go wrong, focus your energy on doing all that you can to ensure things go right. Will things always work out the way that we want them to? Absolutely not – but worrying isn’t going to get us any closer to the achievement of our goals either. Instead of worrying, remind yourself that everything is unfolding as it should and have faith that everything happens for a reason. Here’s an affirmation’s from Fabienne Frederickson that you can use:
“I am positively expecting great results no matter what I see in front of me. The universe is rearranging itself for my best interest right now.”
If you’re trying to kick the worrying habit, print this affirmation and post it somewhere you’ll see it as a daily reminder!
