The future is unknown. No one knows tomorrow. We have all heard these clichés many times, but yet we still worry about what the future holds. Why? Because we’re afraid.
We are afraid of unknown circumstances. We have designed and painted the future that’s unknown to us in our heads and we’re afraid that our imagined future may not come into being. Then we get more worried.
Maybe you need a clearer picture of why worrying about the future doesn’t get you closer to your ideal goal.
Worrying about the future is a setback towards accomplishing one’s goals. It’s a hindrance to positive thinking. It stifles your mind not to do your best at the present because you’re afraid of what the outcome will be.
There are three 3 reasons why should stop worrying about the future.
- The future is unknown.
Setting goals is good, but if you do your best to make your everyday experience better, then you’ll accomplish your goals one day. One day here maybe today, maybe tomorrow. As long as you’re experiencing each day and doing your best, then you’re living in the future.
- The future is already there waiting.
If you’re earning 500 dollars monthly, the day you’ll start earning 5000 dollars is there waiting which is every day. You don’t actually know when, but it is part of the days you’re living and experiencing. The accumulation of your everyday struggle, the good and bad days are the result of the future.
- Every day is your future.
Can you look back at all your worries 5 years ago? You’ll realize that the future you’re afraid of then had passed. You have lived it and it’s nothing to be worried about now. Live every day to your best and you’ll meet the future where it is.
How are you dealing with the future? Do you still worry about it or not? Please speak your mind in the comments.
