World renowned author and self-empowerment speaker Dr. Wayne W. Dyer defines worry and explains its negative impact on our well-being and spiritual evolution as follows:
Worry is the act of becoming immobilized in the present moment as a result of things that are going, or are not going, to happen in the future.
The key words here are “present moment.” Worry, then, is a technique you have created in order to use up the “now” moments of your life, rather than choosing to use these precious, present moments living a fully functioning, happy life.
Everything that has ever happened to you did not happen in the past—it happened in the present moment. And everything that will ever happen to you will not occur in the future—it will take place in the “now” as well. So every moment you elect to spend in worry is your way of using up your “nows” by not being fully present in your life.
