Do you worry needlessly? Probably.

Here’s an authoritative estimate of what most people worry about:
  • Things that never happen: 40 percent. Meaning that 40 percent of what you worry about won’t come to pass.

  • Things that are over and done with: 30 percent.

  • Idle worries about your health: 12 percent.

  • Petty, random worries: 10 percent.

  • Real worries: 8 percent. That means 92 percent of your worries are groundless.
Lesson: The more clearly you see the future and the more calmly you face it, the less you’ll be blinded by worry.

— Adapted from “The Fog of Worry (Only 8% of Worries Are Worth It),” Earl Nightingale, AdvantEdge.
