Top 5 Reasons You’re Not Happy: 1-WORRY


We discussed the series in Post 1, HERE. And we begin right with worry, because worry is the number-one reason most people manage to keep themselves unhappy. So let’s start with a definition.

Defining Worry

Worry: The act of creating the very things you do not want.

Okay, that might not be the way Webster defines it, but it’s accurate.

What you focus on is what you create. Your worry is helping you to tune your radio dial to the station that is playing that thing you’re worrying about. You are attuning to it, making yourself into the perfect receiver to pull it into your life. Now I know that’s not what you want.

Worry: The act of being ungrateful in advance.

Yes, that’s right too. Because when you constantly worry about what could go wrong, and feel terrible about it going wrong, you are leaving out entirely the notion that things might just go right. You are mentally anguishing over something that has not happened as if it already has. You’re mentally complaining, moaning, and suffering over it ahead of time. Over something that does not even exist.

Complaining has the same attractive affect on bad stuff that gratitude has on good stuff. So every worry, which is complaining in advance, is bringing you more bad stuff.
