Quotable Quotes on Overcoming Worry

1) “Why doesn’t a Boxer going to train for a match WORRY that he is going to get HIT? Because that’s just part of his training, to make him stronger. The pain is a gift. He isn’t worried about having adversity. He knows he will have it every day and is always training to overcome it. That should be our attitude toward adversity. It’s no use worrying about it. Face it and deal with it and let it make you stronger.”
-Jack Doueck

2) “All things happen in their proper time. Everything in life happens in the time allocated for it. Don’t waste energy worrying about end results. Worrying only distracts you from living day to day and enjoying life!”
-James Van Praagh

3) “It is possible to be happy and joyful most of the time. You just have to look at little children and see their natural joy. You may say that little children are free and don’t have anything to worry about, but you are free too! You are free to choose worry or to choose joy, and whatever you choose will attract exactly that. Worry attracts more worry. Joy attracts more joy!”
-Rhonda Byrne

4) “If I had my life to live over, I would perhaps have more actual troubles but I’d have fewer imaginary ones.”
-Don Herold

“He who fears he will suffer, already suffers what he fears.”

6) “Worry is interest paid on trouble before it comes due.”
-William Ralph Inge

7) “How much pain they have cost us, the evils which have never happened.”
-Thomas Jefferson

  1. I agree with Jack’s point on how we must face our adversity and let it make us stronger and it is a fact. We challenge ourselves knowing that we will be worried about something to happen to us in the future. When all is said and done, and we worry about what will happen to us, we think of ourselves as the Boxer and just face it so we can be stronger. Great quote, Jack!

  2. Worrying takes away today’s peace and fills it with tomorrow’s troubles. Most of the time, I am sure many feel the same, somethings turn out to be easier or not as expected at they were. For example, we are stressed about an interview, but end up doing well and connecting with the recruiter. People worry about troubles, but troubles are part of everyday activities. Worrying about them means that we worry all the time and don’t enjoy our time on earth. It is essentially a waste of time since the hardship will occur tomorrow, so why worry about it today when there is so much that can done by then to have fun and enjoy yourself?
