Be a warrior, not a worrier

I stumbled upon this quote on Facebook and felt it resonated with me, as I'm someone who suffers from anxiety and has worrywart tendencies.

What I've realized, though, is that incesssant worrying does nothing to ease the nerves; if anything, it frays them.

Instead, we should aim to be warriors, people who confront life's challenges head-on.

Warriors get excited over what could go right rather than concerned about what can go wrong.

They're bold, optimistic, and determined to see their dreams come to fruition.

They see setbacks as temporary. Criticism and negativity from others (and themselves) fuels them to work ever harder toward achieving their goals.

I realize it isn't feasible to be a warrior 100 percent of the time. It's only natural that we worry sometimes, especially in the face of intense pressure.

But we must never let doubt paralyze us. The more we worry, the less likely we'll make progress.

We won't reach our destination unless we are prepared to take risks. We must come out of our comfort zone in order to achieve growth, which isn't always easy.

Worrying excessively can be so debilitating as to cause us to imagine scenarios that are unlikely to ever materialize.

Rather than getting cornered into a place of insecurity and negativity, why not imagine all the great possibilities that may be awaiting you?

I wholeheartedly believe that positive thoughts attract positive situations. Don't be a worrier. Convince yourself that you're capable of anything you set your heart and mind to. This, in turn, will make you a warrior, and you'll be one step closer to making your dreams a reality.
