Fear and Worry
March 21, 2011 § Leave a comment
Today my little girl came to tears in front of me this morning afraid to go to school today. She got embarrassed Friday at school and was afraid that they would pick on her today. The first thing I did was wrap her with my arms and I concentrated on sending her thoughts of peace.
I tried to calm her fears by telling her that more than likely they would already have forgotten about it. Secondly to remember that those making fun will soon be the ones made fun of as it is a natural law that which you do comes back to you, and thirdly, your best defense is to walk away, and if they persist to go get the teacher. I told her not to let fear intrude on her thoughts and to stand tall for she is a beautiful girl and she is always protected by her angels. Those good thoughts that we keep inside will always be there for us no matter where we are or what state of mind we are in. I also gave her an envelope with 1 dollar in it and I told her to be a secret agent and deliver it to someone, anyone without them knowing it so that you are a secret agent of happiness. She got all excited about this and seemed to forget her fear….I look forward to seeing how her day went.
Then as I am about to write this what appears in my email but this email post from Napoleon Hill.org. I would like to share it with you, and my daughter when she gets home….
If you are worried or afraid of anything, there is something in your mental attitude that needs correction.
Worry and fear are negative emotions that serve no useful purpose. Worse, they are not benign influences on your behavior. Both tend to expand if left unchecked until they crowd out positive emotions and beliefs, taking over your mind and filling it with counterproductive emotions that cause you to doubt your ability to succeed at anything you attempt. Unless you control worry and fear, one day you will discover that they control you. While the emotions can’t always be corrected with logic or reason, they are always susceptible to action. Act, and even if your actions aren’t entirely appropriate for the situation, the very act of doing something ? anything — constructive will have a positive effect on your mind and attitude.
