What’s the scariest thing you can imagine happening? You probably don’t have to think very hard. Most of us have something in mind that would be the unimaginable, impossible-to-survive scenario.
Is it an earthquake? An IRS audit? A frightening medical diagnosis? Flushing your iPhone?
What if one of these scary scenarios really happened?
The crazy thing about “what ifs” is that most of the time, they never actually occur.
I want to introduce you to my friend, Jesse Roberts. Jesse is a really smart guy- and a survivor. By the time he was 16, Jesse had already experienced most kids’ worst nightmare- the loss of both of his parents. Even though Jesse has been through immeasurable adversity, he is still standing, and is stronger than ever.
I love the way he has allowed his pain to help shape his purpose- a life devoted to helping other people. Jesse recently opened his own practice as a Licensed Professional Counselor…Wow. I love his heart!
Jesse and I have talked about the value of living in the moment, and enjoying exactly where you are right now, as a powerful weapon against anxiety.
Embracing the present will crush the ‘what ifs’ running through your mind.
And even if the [terrible, horrible, no-good, very bad] thing ever did happen- you’d only have to experience it ONCE!
Wise words, Jesse. Thanks, I needed that.
