Anxiety and Luck–Handle Both!

Anxiety is awful!  Want to have a way to get luckier and reduce anxiety…in one step?

Right here, right now, I can give you one tip to turn it all around for yourself…and it’s not foo-foo, funky or freaky.

Ready?

Stop blocking your good luck by reducing your anxiety levels.

Unlucky people have been found to be generally more tense than those who are considered “lucky.”  Why?  Their high anxiety tends to disrupt their ability to notice the unexpected in life.

Sounds far too simple, but think about this for a moment before you dismiss it out of hand.

Anxiety is defined as a general term which covers several disorders causing states such as nervousness, fear, apprehension and worrying.  Such disorders honestly do affect how you think and behave and are capable of affecting you, even to the point of popping us as physical manifestations.

So when you’re anxious, you tend to fixate on certain things to the exclusion of nearly everything else.  You narrow down the field until you’re perseverating on one or two things overall and that’s that.

Which of course means that you’re too focused on those things to notice nearly anything else.

Which in turn means that you’ll miss out on new opportunities and possibilities that arise in life, because you can’t see the forest for the trees.

When you’re super-narrow on what you’re thinking about, be it positive or negative, you may foreclose yourself from anything else that might be out on the playing field at the time. For example, if you attend an event fixated on finding the love of your life, you may be missing out on making new, good friends of either sex.

If you want to live in harmony with your WHY and achieve all of your S.M.A.A.R.T. goals and you want to be luckier as a result, you have to be less anxious.  Quit blocking your blessings!

Easier said than done?  Not necessarily.

Here are a few quick tips to help you reduce your anxiety levels, fast:

1. Breathe deeply.  It helps calm you down.

Yeah, duh, you say…but when you’re freaking out, do you actually do this?

2. Accept the fact that you’re nervous.  

Denial only kicks your anxiety levels up a notch; you don’t need any more of that!

3. Understand that your brain is messing with you.

Seriously.  You are not all-knowing and all-seeing.  You may think you understand a situation and yet be totally off-base.  Your fears may very well be False Evidence Appearing Real.  Take a time-out so you can go to Tip #4.

4. Question the validity of your thoughts.

Do you need to be so freaked out?  Why?  In fact, ask yourself questions about your thoughts and concerns so that you can flesh out Who, What, When, Where, Why and How?  The more you focus on facts, the more opinions (fears) can take a backseat.  By the time you’re done fleshing things out, you may feel a lot more grounded.

5. Focus on right now, in a positive way, and connect with your WHY.

By focusing on right here, right now, it’ll improve your ability to handle a situation.

6. Be OPEN to the possibilities that surround you, and expect that you can take advantage of them.

By being calm, grounded, centered, fully informed on the facts as opposed to marinating in misery and fear, you’ll be more capable of maximizing every moment.

Which in the end will lead to your being able to:  (a) take advantage of the opportunities that surround you; (b) create opportunities if there are none; or (c) convert problems into opportunities.

Lucky you!
