Make Your Resolution

Choose a resolution that really means something to you.  If you find yourself saying “I really should do something about my financial situation”, then improving your finances isn’t that important to you.

Make It Specific

“I wanna lose weight” is a great start, and “I wanna lose 2-3 pounds per month” is a better start.

As another example, you can say “I wanna quit smoking starting with 2-3 less cigarettes a week”.

Choose Empowering & Moving Language

People say “I wanna lose weight”.  First, nobody wants to “lose something”.  People want to GAIN something.

“I wanna have the strength and amazing energy!” is positive, empowering, and most of all will help you make and keep that resolution.

Even better is “I am gonna have the strength and amazing energy!”

Attach Your Resolution To Things That Mean a lot to YOU!

People say “I wanna lose weight cause I think I should”, or “because my Mom said so”, or “I dunno, I think it’s good for me”.

These reasons will never ever last long-term.  You’ll find yourself getting a gym membership in January, and forgetting about the gym in February.

If you want to have fun with your kids, fun with your friends, feel and look absolutely amazing, and best of all have passion with that special someone, you NEED to have strength and amazing energy.  Passion between two lovers happens when there’s that amazing energy!

Say Your Resolution With High Intense Emotion

Saying “I am gonna have strength and amazing energy” in a low, emotionless, or forced tone of voice while slouching will never work no matter how many times you say it.

Put on a great song, get totally physically and mentally pumped up to the max, then say with your whole body “I AM GONNA HAVE STRENGTH AND AMAAAAZING ENERGY!”

10 times doing this is better than 1000 times with no emotion.

This is not just a pump-up.  This is a way of making the neuro-connection in the mind, body, and spirit.  As a result you’ll successfully follow through and enjoy the journey :).

Flying Phobia Solutions & Explainations

Fear Of Turbulence:

Fear that the wind will overpower the plane and throw the plane around in the air.you can overcome the fear of flying in Toronto

Truth:  Turbulence is different bodies of air mixing with each other.  It is like water in a stream which is bouncing around solid rocks.  The wings are specially designed to be flexible and move around easily. They are also designed extra strong in order to deal with far more wind then they will ever experience.

Fear Of Engine Failure:

Fear that the engines will fail and the plane will crash.

Truth:  The engines rarely experience any issues.  If there is a minor issues, it’s usually when the plane is on the ground.  In rare cases, if a set of engines fail, planes always have at least another backup set.  fear of flying tips

Even if all the engines do not work, the plane will glide in the air for over 100 kilometers without any power.  In fact, most planes turn off their engines when landing, so you’ve already experienced this truth.

Anxiety Signs, Symptoms & Causes

Anxiety Disorder

What is Anxiety?

Definition: People feel anxiety when they expect a future threat or danger which they believe they’ll be unable to deal with.

People usually develop anxiety by getting in the habit of thinking of the worst case scenarios to prepare themselves if the scenario actually happens.

The expectation sets up the body’s fight-or-flight response which can help is small doses and in certain situations, but the frequent activation of the response will leave people feeling exhausted.

Examples of anxiety provoking thoughts:

First Example:  If I try starting my business and fail, I will be broke and living on the streets.

Second Example:  If I start talking to that guy and he doesn’t show interest in me, it means I am completely worthless.

Third Example:  If I drive on the driveway, a car will probably crash into me and kill me and my family.

Anxiety Signs & Symptoms

Mental and Physical Symptoms

Excessive worry, panic attacks, phobias, high blood pressure, trouble sleeping and so forth.  Others have trouble focusing, feel tense, always expect the worse, and are always on the lookout for danger.

When in the midst of a panic attack, people can experience an increased, pounding heart beat, excessive sweating.  In addition, people feel muscle tension, shortness of breath, and more trips to the washroom.

Common labels regarding anxiety include post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), obsessive-compulsive (OCD), separation anxiety, social anxiety, and generalized anxiety disorder (GAD).

Questions to ask yourself:

  • Do you constantly fear worried, preoccupied, tense, and on edge?
  • Your work, school, or family responsibilities are affected?
  • You are having trouble getting rid of irrational fears?
  • Are you a perfectionist and fear the worst if tasks are not completed?
  • You avoid social situations or activities?
  • Are you afraid of experiencing sudden, unexpected panic attacks?

List of Common Anti-Anxiety Medication and Drugs

BENZODIAZEPINES

  • Alprazolam (Xanax)
  • Clonazepam (Klonopin)
  • Diazepam (Valium)
  • Lorazepam (Ativan)
  • Oxazepam (Serax)
  • Chlordiazepoxide (Librium)

BETA BLOCKERS

  • Propranolol (Inderal)
  • Atenolol (Tenormin)

These drugs are usually taken as the person believes it’s the only option.  However they are simply band-aid solutions.  Most of them have many negative and dangerous adverse side-effects as well as a low success rate.

Why Do Some People Experience Both Anxiety and Depression?

Both patterns are a result of feeling out of control.  There are times when we feel in danger and want to fight or flight, then to relax and calm down, we go into a depressive state.  People may also get tired of the depressive state, and jump into a fight-or-flight response.

This pattern is called a Crazy 8.  According to human needs psychology, both the depressive state and the anxiety state fulfill our 6 Human Needs.

What Are Panic Attacks & Anxiety Attacks?

Panic attacks are a physiological response in response to intense real or imagined danger.  People experience expense panic or fear.  Sometimes there is a trigger to set it off, sometimes it seems to happen out of the blue.

Panic attacks are usually at their most intense stage at 10 minutes, and usually last for maximum 30 minutes.  During this time, people can experience trembling or shaking, hyperventilation and feeling detached from everything and everybody.

These episodes can make people feel out of control, like they’re going crazy or as if they’re dying.  People often develop the fear of fear which is the fear of experiencing another attack.

Misdiagnosis and Limiting Labels

Doctors and other health care professionals usually misdiagnose and create false and limiting labels for their patients.  Even though patients may feel a sign of relief that they know what they “have”, these labels create more problems and limitations rather than solutions.  People can experience anxiety based on their beliefs, patterns of focus, language, physiology and so forth, but nobody “has” anxiety.

Here are some examples and explanations:

Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD): People who worry constantly about a wide range of topics.  This anxiety could negatively affect their day-to-day activities.  This chronic worrying can lower the immune system and create ulcers.  Since anxiety is a pattern, people who worry about seemingly everything have just developed the pattern with such repetition and emotion that their brain currently functions that way.

Panic Disorder:  The frequent onset on panic and anxiety attacks in response to a noticeable stimulus or just out of the blue.

Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD): Characterized by repeated and unwanted, seemingly uncontrollable thoughts or behaviors.  People also feel out of control and try to control their surroundings by washing their hands, excessive cleaning of the house, and furthermore worry if they forgot to turn off the iron.

Phobia: An intensive and unrealistic fear response to a specific stimulus, object, activity or situation.  People can have phobic responses to animals such as snakes, while others experience a fear of height, or a fear of flying.

Social Anxiety Disorder: Social anxiety is the strong fear that we won’t be accepted and appreciated for who we are and therefore won’t be loved.  Although everybody has this fear, some people experience it more intensively than others.  People may in addition develop performance anxiety and become a perfectionist.

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD):  The aftermath symptoms of an emotional intense, threatening and tragic event.  People experience negative flashbacks and nightmares of the event(s).  Examples include rape, terrorist attacks, childhood trauma, and battle-scarred soldiers in war or the military.  Signs and symptoms include feeling overwhelmed by the experience and seeking help to erase and make sense of the images.

How To Get Rid of Anxiety

First of all, the amazing thing that I show people is that they can always change their physical reality (situation) or change their perspective.  They realize that they feel anxious for no reason and that they can finally calm down.

Physical Reality (Situation)

I’ve heard of many many stories of people who found themselves in tough situations, yet almost always turned them around and succeeded.

Have you ever been in a really tough situation where you wondered if you’d ever turn it around?  Remember how eventually you figured out a way to not only survive, but possibly even thrive?

Toronto Raptors v Brooklyn Nets - Game Six

Famous rapper Jay Z, who in 2008 married Pop superstar Beyonce, grew up in a single mother household in a drug-infested neighbourhood.  In an attempt to launch his career, he sold his mix-tapes from the trunk of his car.

Tough situation?  Yes.

As a result, is he a successful multi-millionaire now?

 

Changing Your Perspective To Deal With Anxiety

Since there’s no such thing as absolute certainty in life.  Sometimes we don’t have control or influence over our physical reality, but we always have control over the way we look at the situation.

Have you ever experienced an awful incident, and you know you can’t change the past.  However, as a result you learned something incredibly valuable that you later used to grow and help yourself and others.

you can beat anxiety with the right help

In addition, if we look back at our biggest “failures”, they were usually the times where we learned the most.  With that new knowledge we helped ourselves and/or others to grow, succeed and feel grateful.

Therefore, sometimes our greatest tragedies were our most valuable gifts.
