Translate Worry into Concern

Difficulties are meant to rouse, not discourage.
- William Ellery Channing,

Leaders don't help anyone by worrying.

Worry is a misuse of their imagination.

Practice upgrading your worry to concern. Then, once you state your concern, create your action plan to address it.

If we respond to our problems in life by worrying about them, we will reduce our mood and energy, and lower our self-esteem. Being a worrier is hardly a powerful self concept. It also is not inspiring to others when they see their leader worrying.

Instead of worrying, imagine some action you could take now, something bold and beautiful inspired by the current so-called "problem." Getting into that habit raises self-esteem and increases energy levels and concurrent love of life.

People are more motivated by people in love with life than by people who worry about life.
