It’s natural to spend time worrying about the future. What will happen if I don’t get the job I want? What if my relationship doesn’t work out?
But here’s the thing: stressing about the future doesn’t do any good. In fact, it can actually make things worse.
When we worry, we tend to focus on all the negative possibilities. This not only makes us feel bad, but it can also lead us to make poor decisions. After all, if we’re only considering the worst case scenario, we’re not likely to come up with a plan that will help us achieve our goals.
Instead of worrying about the future, try to focus on the present. What can you do right now to make things better? How can you prepare for the future in a way that will help you achieve your goals?
Remember, worrying won’t change anything. But taking action will.
