Are You A Warrior Or A Worrier?

These two words look like the same word when you quickly glance at them but the definitions behind them couldn’t be more different.

Warrior - a man engaged or experienced in warfare

Worrier - to feel or express great care or anxiety

The Difference Between a Warrior and a Worrier
Worriers focus on all the possibilities of all the things that can go wrong.

Warriors focus on how to overcome any potential obstacles that could come their way.

Since our lives follow our dominating mental thoughts, the worrier will manifest their own misfortunes. While the warrior will manifest confidence to overcome any obstacle that comes their way.

Worriers give up when the going gets tough because they don’t believe in themselves.

Warriors believe they can do anything they desire because they believe in their abilities.

One of my favorite all time quotes is from Henry Ford. “Whether you believe you can, or whether you believe you can’t. You are right.

In this case they are both right. The worrier can’t achieve, while the warrior can achieve.

Worriers run away from challenges because they are afraid of challenges.

Warriors look for challenging opportunities because they get inspired by challenges.

If you want to achieve greatness, you have to stretch your abilities to achieve outcomes that are currently beyond your abilities. That is the only way you are going to grow and get better.

Worriers blame others for their lack of success.

Warriors take responsibility for their own actions.

You can never learn from your mistakes if you don’t admit them. Warriors use failure as a stepping stone. Worriers use failure as a stumbling block.

Worriers love to bring people down to their level of misery.

Warriors will inspire their followers to elevate their abilities to reach the next level.
Worriers vision is always focused on the past.

Warriors vision is always focused on the future and the possibilities that the future holds.

Your outlook on life is so important. Worriers dwell in the past, making them destined to repeat it. Warriors look forward to the future while they focus on their desired outcomes. Warriors know what they want and they will not quit until they achieve it.

Worriers will accept defeat.

Warriors will keep on fighting until they succeed.

We are in a time where things are very hard for the average person. Many of you are going to have setbacks. Worriers will accept their outcomes as permanent. Warriors will let their passion and persistence get them back up so they can keep on fighting. ?

Martin Luther King said, “Only when it is dark enough can you see the stars.” How do you view your life? Are you a worrier? Or Are you a warrior? Condition yourself to become a tough warrior. Remember, you can do anything you desire if you believe in your abilities to achieve. Now is the time for the warrior in you to step up.
