We are all scared , everyone one of us felt fear before it is so common and repetitive that in a way it becomes a habit and like any other habit when you stop doing it you start feeling bad. Have you ever had the though that something bad will happen after having a really good day , have you ever worried about how tomorrow is going to be because of how good today was, sometimes even we start to fear loosing after winning , fear dying in the day we really feel alive. we fear to loose fear cause we got really used to it.
To overcome this you need to focus on the NOW , the present moment nothing else not the past nor the future just be in the NOW with all your senses cause that’s the only thing you really have, past can’t be changed and the future doesn’t exist!
Yes it doesn’t and it is very simple let’s say your have a meeting after 1 hour – The future – it doesn’t happen till you start the meeting – the NOW – if you couldn’t make it to the meeting due to any given reason so the future you knew changed as it didn’t exist from the beginning. the future is just an imaginary idea in your brain about what the next NOW would look like and when you imagine that something bad might happen you embrace fear , but if it is just an imaginary thought in your mind means you can control it , then make it a good one and a positive one , of course it won’t change something bad that might happen and it wont solve the problem but at least it will not make the NOW – the only thing you have the only fact that you know for sure – bad till what is going to happen happens and becomes the new NOW.
when i think of this I think a doctor telling a patient that he is going to die after few days , so the patient starts getting scared thinking about that moment of death and how awful it would feel , starts regretting the things and decisions he made in the past , thinks if there is life after death he is so deep in the future and forgets the NOW he went to death before it came to him , I know anyway he will die being positive wont stop it but at least I would have made him enjoy the remainder of the time he had the NOW wold have been different.
Never sacrifice the NOW the only fact you know and have for a later NOW that you don’t know yet you will just loose both of them.
Today was yesterday’s future and will be tomorrow’s past , look at today and think about how you thought about it and planned for it yesterday and you will see my point.
it is nonsense to worry about things that doesn’t exist and future doesn’t as it exists only when it happens and if it happens it is NOW not the future .
If you want to really affect the future and make it the best it could be , there is only one way to do so i too really make the best of the present the NOW if you waste it on thinking and worrying you wont be able to get the best of it which would definitely hurt your future , that’s exactly how the fear of loosing becomes the reason you loose cause it uses your energy so it stops you from getting better
Live everyday as it is you last day , feel it was all your senses focus on the journey not the destination and you will be happier than ever and I assure you it will change everything.
