Anxiety can happen for many reasons but until we are prepared to start going deeper than just our symptoms, our anxiety won't change.
For myself, I experienced anxiety about public speaking and would hate doing it. The symtoms were shallow breathing, tightness in my chest and an inability to think clearly.
I knew that there was more to this fear than just my symtoms and started asking myself the hard questions. What is it about public speaking that I am afraid of? Why do I feel this way? Along with many other confronting questions. Everything I asked led me back to beliefs that I wasn't good enough and people wouldn't want to hear from me.
Anxiety is different for everyone but usually, at it's core, there is a belief that is keeping the anxiety in place.
My anxiety for public speaking didn't just disappear but with a new level of self awareness, I'm able to challenge this belief and take action anyway. That's one of the keys to working with anxiety; it is taking action anyway, even when the anxiety is saying the complete opposite.
I love helping people uncover the hidden beliefs that are keeping them trapped and giving them the opportunity to step into their own power. You can do it too! Ask yourself the hard questions, listen deeply to what comes up, take action despite feeling anxious.
