Stop thinking of the past

Everyone has done things that they regret. It’s only human to make a few mistakes every once in awhile. Remember this: The only time you should look back in your life is to remind yourself how far you’ve come. If you continuously think that you’re going to mess something up because of past experience, chances are you will. You need to have a brighter outlook on life in order to excel.

Think of something that you’re good at

The next time anxiety strikes, instead of worrying about what will happen, take a minute to really think about what you’re good at. It might be your charismatic skills, your artistic abilities, or just knowing that you have the ability to make everyone laugh. Whatever it is, keep that thought in your head until you start to feel better. Think back to a time when you felt on top of the world. Soon enough, you’ll feel that way again. Gratitude is at the heart of the success of every great person because it works. It’s impossible to feel grateful and angry at the same time, so this one emotion could change your life forever. It’s certainly changed mine.

Don’t underestimate your self-worth

Anxiety has the power to make you feel incredibly helpless and small, and even stop you in your tracks. Never lose sight of what you deserve! You are worthy of more than you think! While anxiety is starting a war in your mind, get your worthy troops together to fight back. Anxiety may make you think that you don’t deserve to get a promotion. However, you know how much work you put in to get it. Never lose sight of how far you’ve come to be where you are today. And never stop believing in a better tomorrow. Focus on getting a little better, just 1% better, every single day. Then, you’ll be successful and happy in no time.

In conclusion

If you’re unable to see all that you have to offer, it might be a good idea to seek help. There are tons of people that you can talk to about your anxiety disorder (such as doctors, therapists, and even people that have gone through the same thing). You’re only one person, you can’t fight off all of the demons in your head by yourself. To get the future you desire, you must be at peace with your current self.
