How Many Worries?
Did you know that 92% of your worries are wasting your time and energy? Needlessly, they cause you pain and suffering, when you could easily be much happier?
This 92% is broken down roughly as follows:
• 40% are about things that will never happen
• 30% are over things in the past that cannot be changed
• 12% are needless health worries
• 10% are petty miscellaneous worries
That leaves 8% that are legitimate worries. These are broken down into two types - those you can solve, and those that are beyond your personal ability to solve.
Have you ever thought about how much of your time and energy is spent on needless worries?
Take a sheet of paper and write down all your worries and concerns. Look at each one and decide if it is legitimate or one of the 92% of needless worries. Cross off all the needless worries, and instantly you feel better!!
Once you have sorted them out, you can start to come up with strategies to solve the 8% that are left.
From my own experience, I’ve often found that these worries can seriously damage your health and your relationships. Releasing your worries can really help reduce your stress levels and improve the quality of your life; your relationships, your health,
your finances and more.
