Choose Who You Become!

When things happen to you, you may start to believe you’re not worth anything more than what’s happening to you.

That you don’t deserve any better!
That you’re not worth anything!
That life is unfair!
That people are against you!
That it always happens to you!
That bad stuff always happens!

Although this may be real for you, may be true for you.
Believing any of this WILL NOT help you.
Believing any of this WILL make you unhappy.
Believing any of this WILL make you a Victim.

What If you where to challenge those beliefs and start to believe something different?

What If you started to take your power back – that power over your mind – and then the power over your feelings?

Just Imagine how nice it could be to believe something different.

Although it’s not as simple as this, it’s certainly a start in the right direction. And let’s face it, it’s better than what you originally believed.

Once you start your mind goes searching for more to clarify and confirm – looking for more to confirm the new belief!

It’s like learning the ABC all over again.

A = Activating Event
B = Belief
C = Consequence

A = Someone speaks rudely to you OR Someone speaks rudely to you
B = They don’t like you OR They’re having a bad day, maybe life at home is not good
C = You feel disliked/attacked OR It’s not actually about you

So if all else fails – just remember your ABC.

High Functioning Anxiety – (Hidden behind a SMILE)

Life is all about being successful right?  Everybody has to be seen to be managing!  Only the strong survive!  To ask for help shows a sign of weakness.

High functioning women, holding down a good successful job, being a Mum to their children and all that comes with that (do not get me started).  And if you are lucky enough to be sharing the load with a partner you are a lover and partner too! Yes, you have to keep going, right? Who else is going to pick up the pieces?

What if that driving factor that plays out as motivation is in fact anxiety being disguised.  What if that anxiety is creating such an unhealthy inner-self!

What has to happen for you to take a breath and focus on looking after YOU!

A lot of people think they have to just live with Anxiety and manage, but I don’t see why you do.  We can ELIMINATE it!

Do you have High Functioning Anxiety?

You can look quite successful, turn up early to places, be a YES person, and get a lot done.  High Functioning Anxiety means you look like you’re getting through the day with no problems at all, others may think you always look well dressed and organised and your social calendar always seems full.

What the outside world may not know is that beneath the surface your inner-self is fighting that constant stirring, agitating feeling of anxiety.  You know the feelings of nervousness, fear of disappointing others, fear of failing, fear of not looking like you have it all sorted, of not being that picture of success (because you have it all – right!)

 Where do we go with this now that we know?

  • What are some of your thought patterns that play out like that same movie in your head?
  • What if you were to just mix up the lines a little, and replace some of those lines with ones that support you?
  • Hey, you could even replace some of the characters in your movie!
  • Remember what you already know, and actively build these into your lifestyle
    “YOUR LIFE”   Breathe – Sleep – Water – Healthy Foods!
  • Lastly and most importantly – I wonder if there are any reasons you would want to hold onto this anxiety???

High Functioning Anxiety can be a double-edged sword.
Whilst you fear letting go of what fuels you, it also can be your undoing.

You don’t need to be secretly anxious to succeed.
