Do you have anxiety issues that consume too much of your life? Do you worry you have to feel this way and manage this problem forever? If yes, it can be so frustrating. You know something’s wrong, but you don’t know what it is. You’ve tried many methods to feel better –some work a bit, others don’t at all, but nothing addresses or resolves the underlying cause of the anxiety.
When I work with clients looking to solve any emotional problem, right away I’m on the lookout for what they say about Fear. The reason being, however they speak about this core emotion, is how they speak about themselves.
If they say things like ‘I hate fear,’ because fear is such a huge part of our makeup, it’s akin to saying ‘I hate myself.’ If they say ‘I ignore fear,’ it’s akin to saying ‘I ignore what’s going on in my life.’ Such words reveal exactly what we’re dealing with, and I base what happens next on such language.
The #1 most important thing you can do to turn a fear or anxiety problem around is to stop talking about fear in a derogatory way. This language guide is a clear, practical dictionary of words and sentences that you may be used to saying, and what to say instead, to turn fear from a hindrance into an asset. You’ll be amazed at the difference your words can make.
Likely you’ve been trying everything under the sun to quell your fear or anxiety. Therapy, meditation, breathing exercises, positive affirmations and on and on. Maybe you’ve found a few things that work to get you through a moment or day, or sleep only ok at night –if you’re lucky. But it’s barely working and / or the effects don’t last. Fear or anxiety remains an ongoing issue, hurting your enjoyment of life.
