People grieve more than what is necessary — and before it is necessary.
I know of many professionals who are to stressed about work assignments. They hate deadlines. They hate additional assignments. They hate going to work.
Work is healthy. Worry and hate make work miserable.
I know of a husband and a wife who always quarrel about money. No, not really about the absence of money — but of future misfortunes. The wife is afraid that one day in the future when money will no longer come.
Many anticipated misfortunes never arrived. Fear is an illusion that kills that spirit of a man, and yes, destroys families.
Why not do the opposite of worrying? Be cheerful my friend.
Instead of worrying about too much work, set your eyes on learning how to become more productive and create an environment of joy in your workplace. Think about the benefits of work to your life and to those who are to receive your services.
Instead of worrying too much about the misfortunes you anticipate to come, be happy for the blessings which are about to come. Count every blessings that come and you’ll be happy.
Blessings and misfortunes very seldom come together. Invite blessings into your house, in your place of work, in your churches, and wherever you are.
Be cheerful and fill your life with power.
Do a quick workshop today. Gather your family (or some coworkers) and answer these question: What are the 10 reasons we should be happy today? How can we make ourselves happy today?
