Do you find yourself constantly worrying about the future? Are you feeling anxious and stressed most of the time? If so, you're not alone. Worrying about the future has become a common habit for many people, but what most don't realize is that it not only makes you feel bad, but it's also bad for your overall well-being.

The Negative Effects of Worrying

Worrying drains your energy and puts your attention on things that are outside of your control. It makes you feel like you are not in control of your own life. This constant worrying and fear prevent you from accessing the part of your brain that is responsible for creativity, problem-solving, and overall success.

The Pointlessness of Worrying

The truth is, nobody knows what's going to happen in the future. Experts' predictions about catastrophes and disasters have been proven wrong time and time again. Worrying about something that is uncertain and unpredictable is simply pointless.

Additionally, worrying takes your focus away from the present moment, which is where your power lies. By constantly worrying about the future, you are missing out on enjoying the only thing that is real – the present.

Breaking the Habit of Worrying

Breaking the habit of worrying is not easy, but it is possible. The first step is to realize that worrying is a habit and a decision that you have made. Once you understand that worrying is damaging and pointless, you can begin to shift your focus and attention away from negative thoughts and towards positive ones.

One effective way to do this is by bringing your attention back to the present moment. Take a moment to look around and appreciate the good things that are in your life right now. Instead of worrying about what might happen in the future, focus on taking the next step towards your goals and trust that your Creative Brain will guide you in the right direction.


Worrying about the future is a habit that can be broken. It is important to understand that worrying is pointless and drains your energy. By shifting your focus to the present moment and trusting in your Creative Brain, you can let go of worry and achieve success in every area of your life. So, Let Yourself Off the Hook and start moving towards a worry-free life today!
