Great Advice On How Not To Feel Anxious From JK Rowling, Steve Jobs and Others
Two important steps in becoming mentally tough are overcoming adversity and becoming comfortable with uncomfortable situations. Both scenarios can create overwhelming anxiety and stress that limit our performance and positive outlook. Everyone experiences anxiety from time to time, but when it becomes a constant it can quickly lead to under performance, mental wear and tear and potentially onto worse. It can be debilitating and destructive. Often people experiencing anxiety want to hide what is happening to them because they fear they will be misunderstood, marginalised and disadvantaged. Therefore it is vital to learn how not to feel anxious.
