Knowing that worry and fear might be holding you back from living the life of your dreams and stopping that worry or fear are two different things. You might know that you live with a lot of fear or worry but changing your thoughts or your mind can be difficult.
The feeling of helplessness or sadness over a particular situation or your life can leave you feeling like things will never change. You want to be happy and optimistic about your future but what can you do? How can you get past these negative thoughts and become happier and more optimistic about your life? How can you end the depressing days and begin to change your life?
Chances are that you are confronted with that fear or worry every morning when you wake up. Once the fog of sleep clears, you come face to face with the things that worry you the most. Maybe you hate your job or your love relationship is in shambles. Perhaps you have a mountain of debt that is causing many other problems in your life. Is this the most productive way to begin your day and tackle these troubling issues in your life?
Do yourself a favor and put those negative thoughts on the back burner. Tell yourself that you’re not going to focus on the negative things in your life in the morning. Give yourself a break and tell yourself that you will think about the problems in your life later.
Be gentle with yourself and allow yourself some time to wake up. The problems will still be there later on during the day and worrying about a solution isn’t going to help you become motivated first thing in the morning. Tell yourself that you’re not going to even think about the problem until you have had a cup of coffee.
Recognizing that you’re thinking negatively or that you’re focusing on a problem is another step in the right direction. Often we become so overwhelmed with worry that we are unable to see a solution to the problems that we are confronted with. This worry takes up a lot of energy and time that could be better used to focus on the solution once it arrives. A clear mind is more receptive to solutions while a mind full of worry is only focusing on the problem.
Seeing that you’re worrying too much can often snap you out of this pattern and enable you to take action when the time is right. Fear is a part of our instinct that keeps us out of trouble but part of that fear instinct causes us to freeze in our tracks.
This is the same thing that happens to a wild animal caught in the middle of a highway. Fear can be a powerful emotion that can help us to do amazing things but when it causes us to freeze or become overly worrisome then our life and our dreams will be found dead along the side of the road of life. Relieve yourself of that worry or debilitating fear by thinking off into the future.
What will your life be like when you solve this problem? How will it feel to have all of your bills paid and up to date? Will you smile when you have the loving relationship that you want and need? How fast will you spring out of bed when your days are filled with doing some work that you love? Think of these things, close your eyes and experience these emotions whenever you’re overcome with worry and fear.
Being a little stubborn with yourself and with these negative emotions is very important. While you might wish that it was as simple as flipping a switch or turning a key, these negative thoughts will probably try to return rather quickly. This has been your habit for a while and how you have been living. Being persistent and believing in yourself and your ability to change your thoughts and change your life is key.
Remember that these negative thoughts are not helping you and they’re preventing you from making the changes necessary for your own happiness can help. Try not to become angry with yourself but be gentle with yourself and love yourself. Respect these thoughts but understand their use and master your emotions for your overall well-being.
If you’re not in the habit of doing so, try putting some time aside when you can be alone with your thoughts and dream about what you really want. Look at photos that motivate you and make you happy while giving yourself permission to dream.
Visualization is a practice that successful people around the world have spoken of time and time again as something that came before anything great that they ever did. The most successful businessmen in the world thought about their success before they ever did a thing. The tallest skyscraper in the world was a thought in the designers head before the ground was ever broken.
What makes you think that your life and your dreams are any different. Think about what you want, get a bearing on the direction that you need to go and give yourself permission to achieve that goal. You deserve to live a happy life and not one filled with fear and debilitating worry.
