Anxiety In Certain Situations

You know what to do but you can't seem to move forward.

You've done your research, you took the training, you know what to do, you prepared as much as you can, you even practiced several times. Yet somehow you still freeze, or stumble over your words, or forget half the things you were supposed to do, or simply chicken out at the last moment. 

Later on, you wonder why you weren't able to execute as you envisioned. You wonder what other skills you are lacking. You wonder if you need to "put more effort" into it.

But sometimes it's not your lack of trying. There is a part of you that is holding you back... your subconscious. And we need to address your subconscious blocks before you can easily execute in certain situations. It's like turning off the parking brake before pressing on the acceleration pedal.

Our minds are made up of two parts: the conscious mind and the sub-conscious mind.

The conscious mind is powerful. It's the wellspring of creativity, it gives you the ability to learn and also to choose a new path and future.

The subconscious mind supports the conscious mind by taking care of all other things that could distract the conscious mind. So you don't have to constantly think about these other things. In itself, the subconscious mind is habitual, automatic.

What happens when  you go out of your comfort zone?

The subconscious mind determines what you do, what you like, how you feel, and how you think by making you feel uncomfortable whenever you stray from these pre-determined patterns, your comfort zone.

The bigger you step out of your comfort zone, the greater the anxiety, frustration or whatever uncomfortable feeling your subconscious could generate.

So one trick you could do is to take micro steps. This way your subconscious doesn't know the small changes you make and doesn't send out alarm signals. Take the first micro step, and once you're habituated to the new "normal", you take the next micro step, and the next, and the next. Some call this "Fake it till you make it" or "Practice makes perfect".

But what if we could bypass this long process and re-program the subconscious with a new pattern? Then what you are trying to do wouldn't be outside of your comfort zone but will be part of your comfort zone. 

True, you will have to get better at this new skill, but it wouldn't it be easier without the nervousness and anxiety that keeps distracting you and holding you back?

I've used this process to build my new life. Every time I hit an internal block I would address the uncomfortable emotions so I could continue to move forward. And I found that I was able to experience more expansion and growth this way.
