You still have so much time to fail. You have time to fail at love. At your career. At your creative aspirations. At your personal goals.
You are still young enough to fall and pick yourself back up, so many more times. So don’t be afraid to take those big scary risks now, while you still have the time and the strength and the determination to start over.
I think sometimes people believe that worrying has some kind of productive purpose. Worry sucks all of your energy and joy out of whatever it is you’re doing. It’s human nature to worry, but when we do it constantly, we run into more problems. It may give you something to do, but you don’t get anywhere.
The next time you are worrying about something, try to remember that you aren’t always in control. Instead, do practical things like make a budget or create a schedule. Be proactive and let go of the stress. After all, it won’t change a thing. Worry does not empty tomorrow of its sorrow; it empties today of its strength.
Our minds are quick to move from one thing to another. All throughout the day, we float between our fears of the future and our disappointments of the past, all while we’re stuck in the middle, trying to make sense of it all. Let stillness remind you that in this present moment, you don’t have to make sense of it all.
You don’t have to figure it all out right here, right now. Yes, there are things that need to be sorted through, but this moment is also calling you: to breathe deep and realize in this very moment you are gathering the strength you need that will prepare you for what’s to come.
Long ago, a man went to see a circus show. Before the show began, he saw that a lot of elephants were held by only a small rope tied to their leg. The man suddenly stopped, confused by the fact that such huge creatures were being held by such a thin yet small rope.
There were no chains and no cages. It was obvious that the elephants could break away the ropes at any time from their bonds but for some reason they weren’t even trying. The man saw the elephant’s trainer standing next to elephants. He was curious to know why the elephants weren’t trying to escape from here.
To this, the trainer told him that they were like this since the time they were very young. At that time, it was enough to hold them. As they grew up, they were conditioned to believe they could not break away. They believed the rope could still hold them. On hearing this, the man was completely shocked. He was looking at the elephants in a pity and he went away from there.
Moral of the story:
High chances you are your biggest hurdle on your path to success & a joyful life.
We all survive with a “FALSE HUMAN BELIEF” doubting our own strength which lowers our self-esteem, self-respect, capacity & capabilities. Keep working on yourself & you will experience a better version of yourself with time.

Worry does not empty tomorrow of sorrow; it empties today of it’s strength.
