It wasn’t until recently that I discovered how powerful our minds were. The saying that ‘it’s all in your head’ actually holds a lot more meaning than you may think. The way our life is, the way our emotions change and the way we think is all controlled by our mind. Sometimes, wait no..most of the time, events that happen are exaggerated in our minds and we tend to stress over things that usually never happen. It is crazy how different your life can become once you start to understand this and to use it to your advantage. For instance, most of the time before bed I start to worry about things that don’t even exist or start to think of all the ‘what if’ questions. Whenever this happens now, I have to tell myself mentally that none of this will happen and me worrying or wasting my time thinking about it right now is not going to change or impact anything. Instead, I should focus on the present and do more of what will actually impact my life in a positive way. So why not worry less and let whatever happen to occur naturally.
People tend to spend 85% of their time worrying about things that don’t ever end up happening. Now think about how much time you have spent worrying and think about how valuable time in life is. Time is definitely something that cannot be bought with money, because time is everything. Time is your most valuable asset in life, because today is the youngest you will ever be from today and once it’s gone, it’s gone. So, lets all train our minds to live in the present and to alter it so that whenever something negative comes to mind, ask yourself this question, ‘is this worth my valuable time?’
