We are human beings. It is okay to worry about what you can change. It is not okay to waste your time worrying about what you cannot do anything about.

What are you worrying about? Is it what you can change? Or, is it what you cannot Change? If you can change it, worry about it. But if you cannot change a thing about it, stop worrying about it and start living your life.

What is Worry?

Norman Vincent Pearle said, “It is an unhealthy and destructive mental habit.” Worry is a mental habit. You can either maintain it or get rid of it. It is not helping you. It is hurting you. It steals your happiness away. It wastes your time. It makes you unstable in life. It causes you to make irrational decisions. It will be better for you to get rid of it.

James Allen said, “Out of a clean heart comes a clean life and a clean body.” If your heart is clean, your body, your actions, your thoughts, and your environment will be clean. What is happening to you on the outside is a reflection of what is happening in your mind. You can control your mind by controlling what you think about. If you think about negative things, you will attract negative things into your life. But if you focus on the good things that are happening around you, you will live a great life.

In the words of Leo Buscaglia, “Worry never robs tomorrow of its sorrow, it only saps today of it joy.” To live a focused life is to learn how to live in the moment. Living in the moment keeps you grounded. It helps you focus on doing the right, and the most important things. If you spend your time worrying about common things, you will miss the good things that today has in store for you.

If you want to stop worrying and start living, here is how to go about it:

Believe you can do it. The first step to getting something done is to believe in yourself. If you believe you can do it, you can. If you don’t believe you can, you cannot.

Meditate. Meditation will help you focus your mind on positive things. Replace negative thoughts with positive thoughts. Stay away from negative things, negative people. Focus your attention on what is working for you.

Surround yourself with positive people. Positive people will lift you up. Negative people will pull you down. You cannot go anywhere if you surround yourself with people who are tearing you apart. You can only do great things in life if you surround yourself with great people. If you do that, you will be great.

Write down what you are worrying about. Writing it down will allow you to analyze why you are worrying about it. When you write it down, how you are going to change it will show up in your life.

Connect within. If you want to really stop worrying about unnecessary things, you must look within. The power to stop your anxiety is within you. If you look outside for solutions, you will get nothing. The answers are within, not without. In the words of Dr. Wayne Dyer, “When a problem arises, go within. Get very quiet about it. Use it to learn something.”

Stop thinking about yourself. I am not saying you should ignore your wants and needs. That is not what I am saying. Dr. Wayne Dyer said, “You are totally free when you are able to stop thinking about yourself and your self-importance.”

Worrying does not help, it hurts. Stay positive.

James Allen said, “Think good thoughts, and they will quietly become actualized in your outward life in the form of good conditions.” To stay positive in life, you have to stay away from negative things. You have to maintain a positive state of mind.

Everything starts in the mind. Don’t allow negative things into your mind. Don’t let negative people get access to your mind. Keep your mind sacred. Keep it holy. It is your temple. If you allow negative thoughts, feelings, emotions, associations to mess you up, you are the one who is going to suffer the disharmony within you.

It is hard to always stay positive. But with these six smart ways, you can stay positive in your life.

Focus on the bright side of things.

There are lots of negative things happening around us, but we can choose what we focus on. If you focus on negative things, you will be attracted to negative things. Focus on positive things, move with positive people, do and think about positive things every day.

Be grateful.

A lot of people are not happy because they think about what they don’t have, what is wrong with them, what is not working, what is broken. No, don’t do that. It is a complete waste of your time. Instead, focus all your energy on what is working for you. Appreciate what you have, no matter what. Don’t complain, but celebrate.

Do not doubt yourself.

You cannot stay positive in life if all you do is to continually tear yourself down. To stay positive in life, be positive about everything you do. If you doubt yourself, you have planted the seeds of fear, of doubt, of unhappiness, of sadness, of failure in your mind. No matter what, don’t doubt yourself. Believe in yourself. People will believe in you, too.

Hold the thought of superiority in your mind.

If you want to stay positive in life, let your mind be a positive temple. You cannot keep inferior thoughts in your mind and expect to live a positive life. That is not how life works. Orison Sweat Marden said, “If you want to reach nobility, you can never do it by holding the thought of inferiority- the thought that you are not as good as other people; that you are not as able; that you can’t do this; that you can’t do that.” There is nothing you cannot do if you want it badly. You can do anything if you believe in yourself, and if you know exactly what you want.

Bring out the best in you.

Bring out the best in you. You have it. Orison Sweat Marden said, “Nothing will compensate you for stifling the best thing in you. Bring it out at any sacrifice.” Don’t be scared to express who you really are. Don’t be scared to show people what you can do, and cannot do. Don’t be timid. Be brave. Life belongs to the brave, not to the timid. When you show your braveness, the world will embrace you, and success will come to you.

Help others.

We are more connected than you think. The world need your help. People need your help. They need your talents, your time, yourself. You can’t change the world alone, but you can help change one person. Start today. According to Dr. Travis Bradberry, “Helping other people gives you a surge of oxytocin, serotonin, and dopamine, all of which create good feelings.” Helping other people brings good feelings, which is good for your health and well-being.

Stay positive!
