Do you make mountains out of molehills?
There are so many things that you might “awful-ize,” it is hard not to sometimes. There are situations you don’t want to confront for fear the unexpected, or expecting the worst.
You might end up imprisoning yourself in your negative thoughts to the extent that you create a self-fulfilling prophecy.
Part of success and the power to overcome is a result of casting aside your apprehensions and fears of what “may be” and act from a place of what “must be.”
In the end, Thoreaux tells us that it is never as bad as we imagine anyway: “I suffered a lot in my life but none of it ever really happened.” Don’t make yourself suffer from things that will never happen!
Stop making a mountain out of what is really only a molehill that will be crushed under your foot.
