You're probably worrying about something.
- It could be about a client.
- It could be about a deal that failed.
- It could be about X.
How do you stop worrying about it?
Humans are built to focus on one thing; it's a reason why:
- We can't drive effectively while talking.
- We can't multi-task at our desks.
- We can't handle two simultaneous conversations.
When you worry, you worry about one thing.
- It's your major worry.
- It demolishes any other worry.
- Your body, mind, and soul immerses itself in the worry.
How do You Stop Worrying About X?
As hard as you try, you likely will worry about something for the rest of your life.
So, if you find a worry that's debilitating you or destroying your confidence, find a bigger worry that makes your life more productive.
- Some client rejects you.
- You sit there and do nothing.
- You start worrying about your pride. You cry.
Instead, do this:
- Find a bigger worry.
- Do something productive that renders the debilitating worry second-rate-nothingness (e.g. "automating my business such that my children and their children and their children will be able to run this business machine for the rest of eternity").
- Your mind starts focusing on the bigger -- more productive -- worry.
Worry about something bigger.
