Why Worry 🤷‍♂️

In Blog, Hustle Podcast by Eric ByrnesLeave a Comment

Building off of yesterday’s “Don’t Be A Turkey” Daily Hustle, I thought it would be fun to explore a few reasons why “worry” is a complete and total waste of time and energy… 

  1. Worry prevents ACTION – By worrying, we often fail to take action. When we fail to take action, we become stagnant and sedentary in a constantly moving society.This inevitably prevents us from being able to adjust & adapt to an ever changing world… 
  2. Worry promotes alienation – Obviously alienation in today’s #SocialDistancing game has a bit of a different meaning, but when we worry we negatively affect everyone around us with our skittish, skeptical and often pessimistic attitude… This commonly leads to other people wanting absolutely nothing to do with us, and in turn we become completely ostracized from society. What’s the big deal you ask? We as humans are pack animals and need each other to survive and thrive in this emotionally turbulent world. Our worry is putting us on a sinking ship and trust me, nobody else in their right mind wants to hop on… 
  3. Worry KILLS – Yup, worry leads to all sorts of mental health issues including increased stress, anxiety and depression… These of course are accompanied by all sorts of physiological issues including high blood pressure, chronic inflammation and insomnia which can ultimately lead to heart disease, cancer, stroke or might just lead to swallowing a 12 gauge.

Look, although I probably should, I’m not trying to rain on your “worry” parade… I’m just letting you know that if you let worry march down the street wheeling a baton with flames on both ends, it’s going to eventually burn down the entire fucking neighborhood. 🔥

So… Why worry? 🤷‍♂️
