Are you one that is always anxious and worried? Are you one that’s addicted to your worries? I can safely say that 90% or higher of your worries never come true. But yet, why are people still worrying and worrying. Worrying is like a rocking chair. It gives you something to do but never get you anywhere.
Yes, the economy is bad, unemployment is on the increase, bank is not lending, house may be repossessed and graduates come out jobless. You have every good reason to worry. But by worrying, is it going to help?
I met a successful businessman recently. He told me,’Mary, when times are bad, it’s the best time to do something, maybe start a business. You stand a high chance to be successful because you can only go up and not go down.’ He said many people are too frightened to do anything. He was one who was made redundant in the previous recession. Instead of joining the crowd feeling depressed, helpless and hopeless, he started a small business. Today he is the director of 3 businesses. Well, there’s so much we can learn from this man………don’t fall into the trap of worrying but do something. Bad times can be opportunities for success.
So, stop worrying and do something. It’s time to learn something and dream a dream. Learn how to dream a dream and how to make your dream come true. Remember Hakuna Matata from ‘The Lion King’. If you are a constant worrier, maybe you should consider changing your name to Hakuna Matata which means ‘No Worries for the rest of your day’.
