“Our fatigue is often caused not by work, but by worry, frustration and resentment.” – Dale Carnegie
Daily Nugget of Gold 1178
“Drag your thoughts away from your troubles… by the ears, by the heels, or any other way you can manage it.” – Mark Twain
Ever see a news story where it says, “Experts worry that…”? This should be our first clue that the “expert” isn’t so smart about some things. Yes, sometimes their fears are realized, but often they aren’t. Just the same, worrying about something is one way we can help make it come true.
The Law of Attraction feeds not only on our state of being and gives us more of it, the law also gives us what we expect. If we are in a negative state of mind and worry about something- that emotionalized thought is far more likely to come to fruition. This is true whether we are worried about our finances, our health, our marriage, or our job. Worry is a negative emotion, make no mistake about it.
“I keep the telephone of my mind open to peace, harmony, health, love and abundance. Then, whenever doubt, anxiety or fear try to call me, they keep getting a busy signal — and soon they’ll forget my number.” – Edith Armstrong
What Edith Armstrong said above is key, there IS something we can do to insure far less will go wrong in our lives- it is to keep ourselves focused on the things we want rather than the things we don’t want. A quick way to jump-start this is to dwell on all the things we have that we are grateful for. Does our spouse annoy us sometimes? Then that would be an indication that we need to begin listing all the things we love and appreciate about them and read that list often, a couple times a day at least, and then bask in the positive emotional glow we feel as we do.
“As a cure for worrying, work is better than whiskey.” – Thomas A. Edison
Once we have handled the mental part of curing ourselves of worry, now it’s time to get busy. As we are once again turning our attention to the work at hand, thoughts like “How can I do this task better?” or, “In what ways can I work smarter?” and “What can I do right now to add more value to what I am doing as I focus on prosperity and opportunity?”
