“Worry is a misuse of the imagination” ~Dan Zadra
In order to *worry*, you have to engage a specific mental process. That’s right, you actually have to do something inside your mind or the ability to *worry* or think most anything, just does nOt occur. It might seem as though you haven’t done anything and *worry* just pops into your head and lingers there. NOPE. Not the case. Guaranteed. What people do to *worry* is more often than not running just below their conscious radar. And everyone has a different strategy for getting their brain to do things in a specific pattern and that process of thinking results in *worrying*. Some people UNconsciously make life size or larger than life pictures of all sorts of things that can go wrong, some people tell themselves scary things in scary, loud tonality that frighten them, and others conjure up feelings like chest pains and jumpy stomaches because they Remember something similar happening in the past and believe it’s going to happen again, all of which will result in *crazy-making* of some kind, including *worrying*. If you learn how to your control your thinking at the other-than-conscious level, that below the radar place, you can STOP doing these things inside your mind that cause you to *worry* and begin to take charge of this UNconscious process, CONSCIOUSLY. Then you can learn to control these kinds thoughts so you’ll have useful, productive, good thoughts that lead you to do things happily. What will you do with all the extra time you’ll have when you no long have to worry anymore?
