How to Deal with Anxiety
Brendon Burchard has a refreshing take on how to deal with anxiety. Whether it’s worries surrounding your business or unease in social situations, he suggests that an effective course of action is to develop your strengths and confidence to such a degree that you stop experiencing as much anxiety. We’ll never be able to completely squash our insecurities (“If you don’t have them, the game is over,” Burchard says), but we have the power to improve ourselves, increase our confidence, and at least loosen the grip of anxiety in our lives. It’s an empowering thought.
