Fearing the Future?

If you find yourself constant thinking about what your future might bring. Read on..

  1. Keep in mind that your worst nightmares are unlikely to come true. David Cain taught me this one. And I’ve found it to be quite accurate. Always in retrospect, but always correct. The truth is that most of us worry about things that will almost certainly never happen. Truth may be stranger than fiction, but fiction usually scares us more than reality.
  2. Consider the worst-case scenario. You need to ask yourself this even after you’ve decided your worst fear won’t come true: What is the worst that could happen? Many of our future fears, even if they come true, are not the death sentence we believe they are. Yes, there are some scenarios and situations that would have a negative impact on our lives. But perhaps the worst-case scenario is only an inconvenience rather than a life-changing event.
  3. Turn your concerns into opportunities. Having suffered from insomnia from time to time, which was often caused by specific anxieties or melancholy, I realised that working was the best antidote to worrying. You will feel a lot better when you “do” things, whether it’s gaining the courage to confront whatever it is you fear by purposefully working on it, engaging your mind in something interesting, or engaging in physical activity.
  4. Concentrate on the present moment, the hour, and the day. The majority of our fears stem from a lack of knowledge about certain topics, combined with an inability to see into the future. The truth is that you can only do what you can today, no matter how you look at it. If you can’t do anything about your current fears, take a walk, run, or nap. You’re in better shape.
  5. Consider the last time you were scared of something. What happened the last time you were terrified? You probably made it. Perhaps you believe you have lost or that things have not gone as planned. But it’s possible that we don’t always lose because we’re not good enough. Perhaps we fail because there is a better way to proceed.
  6. Seek assistance if necessary. Sometimes we go through life feeling unknowingly anxious, and we don’t even have the courage to admit it to ourselves. Once you’ve gained this courage, you’ll notice that you can see the things you need to do to overcome your fears much more clearly. But, more importantly, you’ll frequently recognise that you may need to humble yourself and rely on others. It’s okay; you’re only human.
  7. Visualize a successful outcome. It can be difficult to “think positively” of the moment and in the moment at times. But can you picture the desired outcome? Visualization is more than just daydreaming; it is actively practising and projecting the desired reality. It’s about feeling the emotions and feelings of victory before they happen.
  8. Meditate on a regular basis. There is a lot of psychological and medical research that shows that spirituality helps people heal even physical ailments faster, so it can’t hurt to try it out for your future anxieties. For those who haven’t tried it, simply sitting and breathing appears to be a pointless activity. However, taking deep breaths with your eyes closed does wonders for simply calming your restlessness.
  9. Always remember that you have the ability to fight. We’ve all felt defeated at some point. But courage does not imply never feeling defeated; rather, it means doing what you can with what you have, regardless of how you feel. And perhaps the most important thing to remember about courage is that you must give it to yourself; no one else can. And it all starts with belief. Indeed, you must believe you can face your fears and your future.
Stay Happy

  2. Your third point about opportunities resonates with my own journey. Waiting to be discovered, sometimes we just need to open one more door.

      Yes I can relate to that


  3. I really like this post. You defined the application with each point. It is definitely a how to and provides truth that works. However, the only point I want to make is that each individual needs to do their own work.
