Something Troubling You? Try This...

Education & Training with Sell with Soul

worryI want you to take moment... next time you have a free one... and think about something that's bothering you. Something that's worrying you, that's keeping you awake at night, that's always on your mind and bringing you down.

I'm guessing it's pretty easy to do, huh? Not too many of us suffer from a LACK of things to worry about, right!?

Okay, now... voice your worry. Say it out loud.

For example: "I'm worried because I don't have any prospects in the pipeline and don't know where my next closing is going to come from."

Or... how about: "I'm so busy right now I can't keep up. I don't know how I'm going to get everything done and I'm scared something is going to fall through the cracks."

Or (from my doggie rescue world): "The shelter is so full and the dogs just keep coming. There's no way we can save them all - some days it feels hopeless."

Next step... take that worry statement and turn it into a believable positive. For example:

"I don't have any clients right now, but that'll change soon enough. It always does - it always works out even when it seems it won't! I'm not worried."

Or... "I have a lot to do, but somehow it all gets done. I don't know how I do it, but I always come through!"

Or (my favorite rescue mantra): "We make miracles happen every day! I don't know how we do it, but we'll just keeping doing what we're doing!"

Did you notice how different you felt when speaking the worry statement out loud versus the believable positive one? Did your body relax? Did your mind clear? Did you maybe stand up a little straighter and even smile to yourself?

I know I do... when I find myself worrying about something, I try to remember to turn it into a believable positive statement and when I do... the whole world seems brighter. And I feel a sense of power over my troubles that gives me the edge I need to make my believable positive statement a reality! 

Give it a try...

JAH, great post.  Knocking them down one at a time is less overwhelming than as a whole.  When these "worries" begin to creep in I refer to how Vincent Gambini sliced through the prosecution witnesses in the movie My Cousin Vinny.  "I'm finished with this guy!"  Capisce!

What's amazing to me is how, once you remove the words "I'm worried," "I'm scared," and "I'm afraid" from your own vocabulary how often you'll notice others saying them constantly. 

I have always felt that I have a guardian angel watching over my life. Oh, sure, sometimes she takes a break, but for the most part, I've always felt very protected, and that IS my reality that most of the time, things work out, and work out well. I assumed that everyone else felt the same way but am realizing that's not true - many people feel they have a dark cloud following them around and you know what? That IS their reality that things usually DON'T work out and they ARE always fighting to stay afloat. I wonder which comes first... the REALITY... or the belief?

Jennifer - BEAUTIFUL!  I am a very positive person and always believe that anything is possible with God. But today, I was a little down about a particular situation.  But your post lifted me up and helped me to remember the TRUTH.  Thanks so much for your inspirational blog - you are loved and appreciated!

I like the way you think Jennifer. Thanks for the new perspective.  Sometimes the simplest things are not easy, but worthwhile.  I am going to carry this with me today.
