Anxiety is a blessing

Don’t let apprehension or trepidation stop you.

Let it spur you on to bigger ideas, greater heights.

That knot you feel in your stomach before you start working on an idea? That knot is your friend.

It quickens your heart rate, increases your breathing, flows blood to your brain, releases a surge of neurochemicals like cortisol and norepinephrine. Your senses double up time and perception.

It’s the same physiological response as when you’re excited. Your body can’t tell the difference. It’s what you tell your mind that determines whether you’ll react positively or negatively.

When you feel anxiety rising, breathe deep and smile through the apprehension.

The bigger your smile, the more excited you’ll feel.

And the more your ideas will flow.
