TAP 231 - How To Stop Worrying

Summary:

In this episode I talk about how 85% of the things we worry about never happen.  I talk about examples of this in my own life and share some practical tools and examples of how to stop worrying. 

In this episode you will learn:

  • “My life has been filled with terrible misfortune. Most of which never happened” - Michel de Montaigne (2:55)
  • We can handle the other 15% (4:00)
  • 97% of what you worry about is irrelevant (5:00)
  • Don’t get caught up in certain situation (5:40)
  • We are inherently biased to negativity and scary things (7:00)
  • “If you can’t fix it, don’t worry about it. If you can fix it, don’t worry about it” (8:35)
  • Things that seem huge in the moment, will seem irrelevant in the future (11:21)
  • Ponder how many times you’ve gotten through it (12:00)
  • Let go of the worry and be present (13:05)
  • "If you want to test your memory, try to recall what you were worrying about one year ago today.” - E. Joseph Cossman
