There is a lot in our lives that can frighten us if we let it. “What ifs” can pile up to the point where our fear is a heavy load to carry. Sometimes we are merely worried that something might not work out. This worry inflicts us for a short while, but passes like rain storms do. But other times fear can be so debilitating and crippling that it keeps us from growing, progressing, or reaching our potential.
Instead of letting fear get the best of you, use it as fuel to drive you. If you’re scared for something that is approaching, prepare yourself as best you can. Let fear inspire you to ready yourself for what may happen so you’re the best version of yourself when it occurs. But know that even if the worst case scenario does become a reality, you will still be okay. At the end of the day, worrying is like paying interest on a loan you don’t haven’t taken out yet. Don’t let it paralyze you.
