"Worry is a prayer for what we don't want" - Unknown
Consider this quote for a moment.
Powerful, isn't it? Knowing that words and thoughts create our lives, why would someone choose to worry?
I used to date a man who worried a lot. Whether it was something big or something small, didn't really matter. He had simply gotten into the habit of focusing on what he didn't want as if doing so moved him toward his desires.
It was amazing to watch the accuracy in which he attracted and manifested EXACTLY what he was attempting to avoid. That's the cool part about this Universe we live in. All thought is creative. The Universe doesn't care (or judge) what you want or don't want, it simply gives you that which you focus on.
The other day I was worried that I would mispronounce this gals name as I introduced her on a podcast I was hosting. And holy cow, wouldn't you know, that's exactly what I did. Simple example, yes. But it's the same for everything. Whether you are worried about not getting the job, or being on time, or being unloveable. It's literally all that same. Worry is prayer for what we don't want.
Once we get this, we can direct the power of our mind toward the thoughts that DO move us toward that outcomes we desire. It just takes a little mindful thinking. And it's a ton of fun!
