I have a complicated relationship with my anxiety. Anxiety has pushed me and has gotten me far in life. Moderate anxiety has kept me on my toes, driven me to tend to the things that I care about, and nudged me toward my best self.
But anxiety plays dirty — oh it plays dirty. Anxiety has also driven me to take on more than I can handle, to dress rehearse tragedy and every bad scenario possible, to be stuck in flight/fight/freeze instead of healthily moving through the stress cycle. And it's driven me to try to over control everything in my corporate life, which is impossible, so I tried to control everything in my personal life = a ferocious scarcity mindset.
In today's episode we talk about money anxiety, uncertainty anxiety, control anxiety, and status anxiety. It's time to evaluate what anxiety you have, where it comes from, how it has helped you in your life and career, but mostly importantly, what it has cost you.
