Everyday in our lives we move from one anxious moment to the next. Some deal with anxiety better than others and can barely flutter an eyelash in the face of danger. While still there are some who feel like the world is about to come to an end when their sports team loses a game. It is within this real-world (versus our fantasy world) we are able to attack the evil monster that has haunted us since we were kids and still often holds us back.
That monster is anxiety and it does NOT control you. You have the power to control anxiety. You have literally the power to do anything in your life but that is a discussion for another time. Right now lets get one thing straight: the effects of anxiety are purely circumstantial, NOT absolute. Don’t believe me? Then I challenge you to think about how you are feeling right now. Are you happy? Are you depressed? Have you been doing things that make you happy? Have you been doing things that make you depressed? How about the people you hang around with?
I hear all kinds of magical internet equations all the time that claim we are the product of the 5 or 10 or 100 people we spend the most time with. Well, there is truth to that. You will share the habits of those you spend the most amount of your time around. If you’re just “chillen” and not motivated to improve yourself, get in better shape, make more money, earn a better stat in a video game, become a better motorcycle racer or even something as simple as be a better Dad than you have established a sedentary lifestyle. Environmental factors and most personal life factors are circumstantial and thus changeable. Change the factors in your life and you will change your entire reality.
You’re Welcome. Internet.
