“Be a warrior, not a worrier.”
I came across that quote while on a 5-hour plane delay en route to facilitate and present at a high-pressure business meeting. I was already very nervous, overworked, and exhausted from long weeks of preparation. I’m not a huge fan of public speaking and the travel issues weren’t helping.
My mind was buzzing with worry and I could feel my muscles tensing, my jaw clenching, my stomach rumbling, and a headache coming on.
I decided I had to get a grip and made myself start my go-to stress relief practices. I took a deep breath and started to flip through a magazine when my eyes caught on a quote – be a warrior, not a worrier. Something about that saying, “be a warrior,” resonated with me.
What a great opportunity to change my thinking and reframe the worrying.
To actually stop the fretting in its tracks.
Being a warrior, and not a worrier puts the confidence and power back in YOU. Whatever happens, you will be able to deal with it. Super empowering!
