Fear has a sister and brother - Guilt and Worry

I read Dr. Wayne Dyer’s book ‘Your Erroneous Zones’ at what turned out to be a pivotal point in my life in the early 80’s. In the book he calls guilt and worry the useless emotions and says that neither serves any useful purpose. 

We can’t change the past so clearly feeling guilty about it is pointless.

Worry is a little more complicated because it is based on a fear of things that may happen or may not happen in the future. Worry is pointless too because so many factors are outside of our sphere of influence. All we can do is our personal best in the moment.

Are you letting fear (see my previous post) or guilt or worry hold you back?

Time to let go.

Be the difference you want to see in the world.
