We all worry, and today’s business climate doesn’t make worries any easier to avoid. Worrying is little more than trading your peace of mind for self-inflicted negativity about the future. It’s needless, and the cost of that trade-off is simply too high. Take a hard look at what you’re worried about today, identify your underlying fear, then let the feeling pass through you like a wave. Once fear’s peak has passed, you can have the courage to change what you can, and the serenity to accept whatever remains.
