From Worry to Optimism

The lesson I learned...

Assume negative outcomes in all situations. This will make dealing with any outcome easier. Thoroughly and repeatedly envision bad scenarios but hope and pray they do not happen. Take no action besides worry. Lastly, believe that this mental exercise is completely out of your control.

Maybe planning for the worst makes some sense, like the old saying, “prepare for the worst and hope for the best”?

I don't think so.
