Talking Points from Roger Hall
Worry is not fear. It is anticipatory fear. It is malignant advance planning
Fear is productive. Fear is self-preserving. When motivational speakers tell you that you want to live beyond fear they’re encouraging you to live in a way that’s likely to get you killed.
Fear acts as the emotional guardrail to keep us from doing things that will kill ourselves.
Fear is present tense.
Fear creates one of 3 productive actions:
What Is Worry?
Worry is anticipatory fear.
Worry is unproductive because it creates no productive action.
It activates a part of the brain that shuts down the parts of your brain that do advanced planning.
Solution to Control Worrying
- Determine when you worry
- Get up and kill the mosquito (example)
- Work out just one solution
You’ve never had anything go to plan in your life, but coming up with one solution is usually enough.
