What if.......?

"A competent and self-confident person is incapable of jealousy in anything. Jealousy is invariably a symptom of neurotic insecurity"- Robert A. Heinlein
What is the root cause of Insecurity? Why do people live in fear? Why does this question hover in your mind- What if.....?
"It is insecurity that is always chasing you and standing in the way of your dreams"- Vin Diesel.
What if I loose my job? 
What if so and so dies?
What if I do not have enough money when I retire?
What if I am not able to complete my project on its deadline?
What if my competitor moves ahead of me?
What if the project I am working on is not successful?

What if....?
We are loosing out on our precious present moment by being bogged down thinking about the future. Thinking about "what if", we make back up plans and more back up plans. We want to lead a fool proof life. And we get frustrated when our plans backfire.

To come out of this, "What if", simple mantra is to live in the present moment. Do your Karma without expectations and last but not the least, be self sufficient and independent. Believe in yourself and in Supreme power. Nothing and nobody should give you insecurity.
