65 – Be Anxious for Nothing
BY STAN KONTOS
Wouldn’t it be great to get rid of anxiety, anxious thoughts, angst, fear, stress and any fearful thoughts and emotions?
I am sure at some stage in our life we have heard of the “flight and fight response”. In simplicity, the response of flight (fleeing, running away), or fight (to face it head on) was designed to protect us from extreme danger. It was never meant to be used on a daily basis because of a media story we read, or in reaction to what someone says. We are not meant to get any anxiety other than in life threatening situations.
We are essentially meant to live without anxiety or fear, but instead, with a sense of power, love for self, others and the world, and with a sound mind that is always able to think straight. So how can we retrain ourselves to be “be anxious for nothing” people? We need to realise that life is too short to keep worrying about things that may never happen. We need to understand that stress in any form is unhealthy, unhelpful and unwanted by people who want to live a more abundant life.
Make a decision today that you will never let any media story, any person, or any event cause you stress, unless it is life threatening and you need to escape quickly or fight it off. Make a commitment that you will not allow emotions to cloud your mind by distorting your thoughts after you read the media item, speak to the said person, or experience an event.
One of my very early advisors said to me, “Master your mind son. Learn to master your mind then you will have anything you want from life”. Yes, I know you will be thinking, “Easier said than done Stan!” I sympathise because yes, it sounds simple however it is not easy. It does require a lot of practice, however, when you arrive you will experience a self control that is quite profound and will allow you to prosper so much more in life. The secret is beginning today with a decision that you will become a, “Be Anxious For Nothing” person, and you will do whatever it takes to achieve this.
Decisions come first and answers come second. Once you decide that you want to master fear and all its variances, you will have entered the royal road to lifelong personal development and it is on this road that the destination will appear for you.
Best of luck – all I can say is it is a wonderful journey, the journey of self mastery.
Live with passion, stay on your life purpose, and always be at peace.
