Anxiety is not your identity. Nor is it a life sentence. .
When we keep defaulting to anxiety, it’s only because that’s what is familiar to us. It’s an overused emotion and a strategy we go to first. .
When we continue to do this, we subconsciously make a decision that we don’t deserve any better. That this is as good as it gets. And in that way, we put a ceiling on the sorts of results we’re able to get. We ‘cap’ our achievements. .
In this way, we don’t reach our full potential. In our career or business; in our relationship with our intimate partner; in our earning potential; and in so much more. .
Finding out who YOU are without the anxiety, is where the truth starts. The person deep down who has always been there and just wants a chance to shine. To be seen. To be set free. To be all she can be. And even more. .
To do this, we can’t do it alone. .
1) we need to ask for help - something that typically doesn’t come naturally and takes a whole heap of courage. Find one person who can help you and ask for that help. .
2) realise that anxiety is something you learnt a long time ago. It’s not your fault. There is no shame. It’s just a story. And like a ‘choose your own adventure’ book, YOU get to change the ending IF you choose. .
3) Make a decision that anxiety will not determine your reality. YOU will. And when that decision has been made, you’ll start to take action on things that held you back before. .
