Welcome to a worry free zone – at least I am making every effort and surrounding myself with positive people.
Adam Eason in his weekly Adam Up Ezine throughout September has been writing about ‘worry’ and how to avoid it or at least keep it in check. And now today a favourite person of mine – Carol Bentley – in her blog is singing from the same hymn book.
Thank goodness for entrepreneurs as they seem to be the only people who have an optimistic thought in their head. At the best of times we seem to be surrounded wherever we go with negative people – fed thoughts and opinions by a negative press – fed by dreary miserable journalists – who seem to spend their days making sure they seek out the most depressing things on earth to report about.
Far be it for me to belittle the awful things and situations that go on in the world. Much of it can bring me to tears – HOWEVER – a sense of perspective is called for. Be concerned and help where you can (eg give to charities or help in some practical way) but don’t worry as that is totally wasted emotion. You can’t change tyrants in power or the overall economy so why worry about it.
If you have to worry – worry about the things you can do something about – and even then you don’t need to worry because you can darned well take appropriate action to change things.
Here is one of my favourite quotes:
The Serenity Prayer –
In the last 24 hours I have heard a few positive voices amid all the gloom – and in every case they are people who are in control of what they do. They have a positive mindset and will let nothing get in the way of their goals. Entrepreneurs each and every one of them – famous and not so famous.
Will the last standing Entrepreneur please turn off the light.
