What if I don’t pass my exams?
What if I don’t get a job?
What if I don’t get a good salary?
What if people make fun of me?
What if people think I am stupid?
What if I am overweight / underweight?
What if I don’t reach on time?
What if I don’t please people around me?
Just think of how many “WHAT IF….??” Questions came to your mind in last 1 year. (You are too lucky if your answer is – NONE). Now, just think of the instances that worried you. I feel more than 90% of our worries are the outcome of these “What If..?” questions.
But, its not true for all, and they live a much contended, happy life. People who live in present. Its not that these people are not ambitious and don’t care for their future. Its just that they believe in doing efforts and leave the result on GOD or destiny.
The funniest part is most of “What if ?” questions doesn’t exactly relate to your present or future , to your personal or professional growth but to your social image – what people around you will think if you take this decision. Always remember – you can never please everyone…
If you lead….people will say….you are arrogant …you don’t follow anyone..
If you follow…people will say…. you are coward…you can’t set your own path..
If you walk beside them… people will say.. .you don’t have your own individuality… you always want company..
So, if you want to be free of worries…do what you feel is right… try to please only those who are too close and special to you… Do take care of your social image…but don’t overdo it… don’t hurt anyone’s feelings.. but be straightforward & crystal clear in your talks…
DO WHAT YOU FEEL..
SPEAK WHAT YOU FEEL…
FEEL WHAT YOU WANT TO FEEL..
Let your thoughts be free…let them flow like the water in the ocean… Do not interfere and impose restrictions because this is what starts disturbing our mental peace.
So, if you want to minimise your worries …you need to minimise this “What if ? “ factor. I am saying minimise it because it may not be possible to eliminate it completely.
Just try it out guys and see if it works..
