Have you ever found yourself spinning in a whirlwind of chronic anxiety, trying oh-so hard and wondering why nothing seems to work out "for you?"
Me too! At least, that was my experience in relationships, in business - everywhere and nearly all the time. I thought I was just broken, too sensitive, and too much for this world. I had to learn how to turn anxiety into confidence and let my inner potential break free from my self-sabotaging thoughts.
A few years ago, all that changed for me when I finally understood how my yes-person, unconditional-love, forgetting-to-honor-myself life was entirely backward from the life I would later thrive in.
You see, being unconditional without first being true to YOURSELF is the single fastest way to suffocate and confuse the people you really want to love, tank the business that was built to support you, and ultimately FEEL like you're drowning in a broken life with NO clue how you created that.
Another way to say this: STOP being a YES-person! Let that go, friend!
This advice can seem counterintuitive on the surface, when you first step into it, but it's actually not - and it sparks huge growth both personally and profits very specific people... soulful, heart-centered empathetic people.
Here’s the GOOD news: When I see this in a new client, I’m jumping for joy on the inside because I know something my client is about to discover that there is a solution, and it can transform your romantic, family AND professional life FAST - quantum leap fast. So, if you want to know how to turn anxiety into confidence, get that boost to put yourself first!
You see, I know now that over-giving was just me struggling with a life I wasn’t really at the center of. Over-giving gave way to over-thinking and led to being open to things I would never otherwise consider.
• Committing myself beyond what feels responsible (for me).
• Saying yes when I KNOW in the depth of my being, I want to say NO.
Over - anything.
If I catch myself in those old habits, you know the next gremlin who is right behind? My old pal anxiety and his BFF depression. Soon after, I'm back in the waves again, wondering if I'm even wired for this life at all.
For now, remember...
• If your love life feels complicated...
• If your professional life feels complicated...
• If your family life feels complicated...
• If ANY of it overwhelms you...
You can start to make HUGE life changes with one simple paradigm shift: Be true to yourself first; make sure your cup is full first; stay in YOUR lane and tend to your self-care EVERY single solitary day. Your life is YOURS because YOU are at its center.
If all this resonates for YOU, congrats! You're about to take the first step toward transforming anxiety and exhaustion into clarity, peace of mind and productivity (even simplicity)... and finally step into the life you're made for.
