"Inaction breeds doubt and fear.
Action breeds confidence and courage.
If you want to conquer fear,
do not sit home and think about it.
Go out and get busy."
    - Dale Carnegie

Is there anything worse than waiting around for something to happen?

It is only worse when either fear or anxiety surrounds the situation.

Our minds are the critical puzzle piece to attaining peace and joy.

The mind and what we allow our minds to process  is the most important deciding factor in how our day is going to go, how our week, month,  year, and life will proceed!!

When confronted with a trial or fear of physical harm,  our physical nature is hard wired - either fight or flight! 

The same holds true for our minds!

We have a decision point when confronted with a challenge - we run from it or we take it head on!

Chances are that every single one of us reading this has some sort of trouble, worry,  fear, or challenge that we are facing - at this very moment!

If we choose - and it is OUR CHOICE- to cower and ruminate on the issue over and over again every waking hour in our minds,  we have chosen the flight option! !!

We have decided to let our minds compound and pile on to our one issue ALL other worries and fears that it can conjure up and we are quickly overwhelmed! !!

It can happen in an instant and that cascading of fear and doubt and depair will paralyze us!!

The other option we have at out disposal is Fight - ACTION!!

Fight off the urge to compound the one issue we are facing and instead ask yourself this question:

"What is the worst that can come from this?"

Chances are that the end result of the worst case scenario is not worth the pain and suffering that allowing our minds to open the floodgates of fear will bring upon us!

We must take the offensive - take action - figure out an action plan to solve or address whatever the issue may be!!!

Do not sit and think about the problem - jump on the solution to it right away!

Remember - no problem is eternal and all that we have to deal with will pass!!  It will not matter in 100 years - perhaps not even in 100 days!

Take charge - control your thoughts and exactly what you choose to focus upon - and ACT!

It is the only good choice!  

Stay Strong! !!
