The one thing that inhibits our journey to success is worry. Sometimes worry consumes us. We need to take another approach.

Don't worry about how long it will take to get something done. Don't worry about how difficult it may be to get something accomplished. Don't worry about what others may think of you. Don't worry about failure. Just get busy and get on with it.

Don't waste your time and energy on worry. Instead use your time and energy to take action. Use the power of visualization to achieve what you want and desire.

Certainly there will be challenges. You may encounter embarrassing moments, experience mistakes and difficult journeys. After all, success doesn't come easily, but the rewards can be plentiful.

Worry fills us with doubt, and doubt can eat away at our dreams. However, if we choose to take positive action, with relentless determination and intensity, there will be no room for worry.

Even though we will always experience problems or difficulties, each of us is truly capable of accomplishing much more, even greatness. Imagine yourself fulfilling that greatness. All we have to do is start right now from where we are and with what we have. Suppress the worries and fear. Start down the journey to your success look forward to achieving your dreams. Stop worrying-just do it.

Think about it...
