- Worry clutters our thoughts: It takes the clarity out of our thinking and it makes us lose focus.
- Worry transfers positive thoughts into negative thoughts: Top many negative thoughts create anxiety. Anxiety consumes your mind to a point you can’t think clearly and it alternate your perspective of life.
- Worry is a bad advisor: Don’t trust your mind when you are in the apprehension mode because you can’t be clear and focused when you are anxious. Therefore, don’t take life-changing decisions when you are in this mindset.
- Worry holds you hostage and stuck in one place: Your brain goes in circles and doesn’t find an opening to get out of that frame of mind. It holds you back from moving forward in life.
