Did you know that the amount of energy directly impacting your productivity that is fleeing your system because of worrying about the future is beyond enormous??!!!
Worrying is one of the main causes of Stress, and of course, almost all the bad health issues can be easily attributed to stress.
Last night (or pretty much early this morning), I woke up around 4 AM, checked out my mobile phone to find 2 missed calls that I received at 2 AM from the janitor of the building where my apartment is in Beirut. Although I am in Dubai now, I couldn’t help not to start asking my self on what was the news that couldn’t want till morning to be shared with me… Of course I couldn’t sleep afterwards thinking and over-thinking… Possibly on all the scenarios that may have happened… Although what I would normally coach anyone,is to go back to sleep and attend this matter first thing the second morning… But I couldn’t… I gave in to the twisted thoughts that were flowing my mind…
At around 7 AM Beirut Time (8 AM – Dubai Time), I called the Janitor… And he told me, it was by mistake that he called my number and there’s nothing at all…
I can’t say these types of similar incidents don’t happen often with me 🙂 … But I normally manage to treat 8 out of 10 of them with the Tip of this week!
It’s simple, and it’s very straight forward… You Will Cross that Bridge when you get there… an expression that means you will not worry about a possible future problem but will deal with it if it happens
You can’t change the past, but you can ruin the present by worrying about the future
Enjoy your Week!
