Ever since I was little, I worried about many things. My favorite topics were money, health, and my future. What’s your favorite topic to worry about?
And don’t tell me you never worry or fear nothing. Because if you have zero fear, that means you’re a robot!
Everyone spends time thinking about things that will never happen. Because that’s what fear is. Michel de Montaigne, the 16th-century philosopher, said it best:
“My life has been full of terrible misfortunes most of which never happened.”
We all know that fear is meant to save us from trouble. But in the modern world, that’s simply not true anymore. These days, fear is only something that occupies your mind.
Our thoughts are so cluttered with fear, worry, and stress, that we can’t focus on our goals. In my personal experience, living a full life has nothing to do with the resources or opportunities you have.
