Stop Worrying and Start Living Your Life

Published 01/24/2023

We spend a lot of time and energy worrying about things that may not ultimately matter. 

These concerns are often superficial and don't significantly impact our lives or well-being. However, because we are so focused on them, we may miss opportunities to pursue the things that truly matter and bring us joy and fulfillment. 

Therefore, taking a step back and evaluating what is truly important in life is essential. 

By prioritizing the things that matter most, we can free ourselves from the distractions of the trivial and focus on those that indeed count. This prioritization helps us live more fulfilling and rewarding lives and make the most of our time.


Why we worry

There are many reasons why we may worry or feel anxious. 

In many cases, worrying is a natural response to uncertainty or potential danger that helps us to prepare for and address potential threats. 

Some people may be more prone to worry due to their personality, past experiences, or other factors. This is often due to our natural tendency to focus on the negative and overestimate the likelihood of adverse events. However, excessive worrying can be unhelpful and lead to stress and other adverse mental health effects. 

Ultimately, while a certain amount of worry can be helpful, managing and addressing excessive worrying is vital to maintain good mental health and well-being.



Managing risk is an integral part of achieving success in life. In order to maximize our opportunities, it is important to carefully assess the risks associated with each situation and make informed decisions about how to proceed. 

One way to do this is to look for situations with a level of risk that you can tolerate but also have the potential for a significant upside. By taking calculated risks in your life, you can increase your chances of achieving success. 

You need to remember that not all risks are equal, and you must carefully evaluate each situation and consider the potential consequences of your actions. By taking a measured approach to risk management, you can increase your chances of success and avoid making costly mistakes.


R​ejection and embarrassment 

Rejection and embarrassment can be challenging to experience, but they are a normal part of life. 

Everyone experiences rejection and embarrassment at some point, and it is a natural part of the process of trying new things and taking risks. 

These feelings are often not as bad as we imagine. In many cases, the worst that can happen is that we don't get what we want, or the rejection may be uncomfortable or difficult to handle. With time and perspective, these experiences can often be put into context and seen as learning opportunities. 

By embracing these experiences and learning from them, we can grow and become better, more resilient individuals.


Memento mori

It is a common saying that when faced with our mortality, the things we thought were important in life often become less so. 

As you approach the end of your life, you'll likely focus on the things that truly matter: your relationships, the memories, and the love you have shared with others. 

In the face of death, many people find that material possessions, career achievements, and other worldly successes no longer hold the same significance they once did. Instead, you may find solace in the knowledge that you have lived a fulfilling life and positively impacted the world and the people around you.


Ultimately, what matters most at the end of your life is how you have treated others and that you lived with integrity, kindness, and compassion.
