Rebuke Your Jack Stories 7

Ahh…”The Jack Story.”

I’ve always known it to be:

‘The irrational tendency to work one’s self up by creating an outrageous scenario,

…that probably WON’T happen.’

It’s no fun.

And it can throw a monkey wrench into our works like nothing else.

It also creates a HUGE, unamusing ‘what-if’ state of mind.

We can get the blues just contemplating our imagined “Jack Story”.

The fact of the matter is;

…we gain nothing by obsessing on the worst things that could happen.

And we sap the strength we need to be better problem solvers!

So…rebuke your Jack Stories!

    Ah Debby – the nightmare of ‘what ifs’! On the upside though – if you are a what-if kinda character – then use it to your advantage & be prepared for all the possible scenarios ;-). Sometimes the what-if bods are better prepared when things don’t quite go to plan as they’ve imagined it and worked it through already!

    I love this quote from this video!

    “For me, knowing when to let go of worry has never been clear. But what is clear is that worry has no real power.”
