Worry is a thief of joy

Do you know that worry can give you the feeling you have a lot of responsibility, when you actually don’t.

You fret, fuss and focus on a host of things out of your control. You don’t organize or prioritize them so they end up feeling like they’re happening all at once.

You masochistically pride yourself on being able to keep everything in your head, so you rarely, if ever, write things down.

This is at the expense of focus, efficiency and the experience of joy in what you’re doing.

You only have enough brainpower to focus on the task of it instead of the experience of it.

All because you refuse to write down everything else in your head so you don’t also have to remember it.

Why do you do this?

In part, because at some point you decided everything that goes wrong is your fault but everything that goes right is due to luck.

Do you really believe you were put on this Earth to burn bridges instead of building them.

You won’t suddenly feel good enough by declaring yourself General Manager of the Universe.

If it was your responsibility it would be in your control.

Your life is happening while your mind is everywhere but here.

Let go of the business that isn’t yours, so what remains is yours to enjoy completely.

Let’s talk about how I can help you achieve this…
