Accepting anxiety is a sign that I must do what is necessary. It means that I need to make things happen. It means that I can do what I do best. It means that there is power that is coming out of my mind/body that needs to be unleashed and that the anxiety is there for a reason. Anxiety is priming the pump for greatness and is a tool that we all need to survive. If we didn’t feel anxious we would never be ready for anything. It is a tool that forces you to focus and to prepare, to be better than you were yesterday and to be ready to launch forward. It is also there because it tells you when you are doing things the wrong way, it is there because it shows your weaknesses and forces you to the face those weaknesses.
As a lifelong sufferer of anxiety, debilitating at some points, I have decided to embrace it, make it my friend. I believe anxiety is a tool for greatness! It is a tool that gets you excited and wakes you up in the morning to be ready to perform. It is a tool that forces you to do/be/get better if you recognize it as such. It forces me to do the deep work, to ask the questions: How do I perform? What do I need to do to be ready to perform? How do I lever this internal power to move forward?
