Have you ever noticed that 99% of the things you worry about never happen?

In a follow up to yesterday’s article , today I want to touch on some of the things we worry about that never happen, such as…

The end of the world

Being hit by a car

Dropping your phone in the toilet

Your plane falling from the sky

Earth getting hit by an asteroid

Getting struck by lightning

The condom breaking

Getting burnt while cooking

Being bitten by a snake while on the toilet

Abduction by aliens (which might not be such a bad thing)

Getting robbed

Falling down the stairs

Becoming a victim of identity theft

Never finding true love

Never having kids

Failing a test

and so much more…

The conscious and sub-conscious mind will always be making noise, and if you ever take the time to listen (like most of us do), the majority of that noise is negative. According to Rick Hanson, Ph.D., a neuropsychologist, founder of the Wellspring Institute for Neuroscience and Contemplative Wisdom, and New York Times bestselling author, humans are evolutionarily wired with a negative bias. Our minds naturally focus on the bad and discard the good. It was much more important for our ancestors to avoid threats than collect rewards.

We see evidence of this in our everyday thoughts and actions, and the only way to silence the negative is to switch your frequency to the positive side of your brain. This is not easy and requires constant, vigorous training; but it pays off in the end. The rewards of positive thinking on the body, mind and your overall life can be amazing.

Call To Action

Find activities that help you focus on positive thoughts such as meditation, yoga or reading encouraging books. Practice as often as possible and make them a part of your routine until the positive starts to outweigh the negative.

I am about to begin my meditation journey, so I will take you on my path, and hopefully you will be able to share yours with me also.

Are you ready for the challenge?
