Anxiety is a sign to pay attention and bring your A-game. You can turn it into drama, a false cataclysmic feeling, or you can use it as a performance enhancement tool. Here’s the three primary sources of anxiety and what to do about it:

1. Fear of loss. Too often we worry that we could lose respect or love if we fail at something. But most often these are unfounded concerns or faulty assumptions driven by a fearful, tired or undirected mind. The next time you feel anxiety, take a few deep breathes and ask, “Can I use this energy to prepare to gain something versus sit here and fear losing something? What action could I take to ready myself and minimize the chances things won't go well?” Then brainstorm actions you can take to move forward. Sometimes the easiest way to wipe out anxiety is to get a little momentum.

2. Fear of hardship. A lot of anxiety comes from feeling like we aren’t strong or capable enough to handle a difficult situation. But we have to question this assumption as well. Often, we’ve been through a lot worse and survived. And now we can use the anxiety to take a step back and better prepare for this upcoming challenge. We can turn anxiety into a strength, into a preparation weapon. Look, no matter what is coming up, you can handle it if you prepare, ask for help, and open yourself to learning and being courageous in tough situations. The tools to manage the difficulties of life are within.

3. Fear of disappointment. Often anxiety comes from the fear that we'll feel sad or experience negative feelings if things don't turn out well. But perhaps it's time to focus on the journey rather than the destination. Just focus on bringing your best to the situation at hand, and remember that everything will turn out well as long as you’re open to learning and asking for help along the way. All will be well as long as you stay in motion toward your dreams.

When you have big goals, dreams and aspirations, your habits act as the wheels on the road to achievement. Without maintaining the right habits, it's impossible to build your career, contribute and give in a way that works. But how do you SUSTAIN habits?

I’ve spent my entire career helping high performers set up better strategies and habits to keep them energized, engaged and achieving their best. And the biggest secret I’ve learned in almost 20 years in this field is what I call “trigger moments.” Triggers are how you activate the power of habit.

In essence, trigger moments are cues that remind you to activate your intentions or habits.

It’s one thing to have the intention to be more kind, patient and loving with people; it’s quite another to set a reminder on your phone that triggers you into being that kind of person. It’s one thing to want to eat wealthier, but another to setup a mental trigger that says, “Every time I drop off my kids at school, I immediately go to the gym or drive to the grocery store and buy fresh produce.” A trigger is a “when this thing happens, then I do or think that.”

For example, if you want to become more present and calm throughout the day, set up three phone alarms to go off throughout the the day with a label that says, “Close your eyes, take ten deep breaths in, and remind yourself to be calm.” These reminders will trigger you to enact the new behavior. 

Whatever you want to achieve in your life - better health, more energy, more clarity - set a trigger.

When uncertain or afraid, how do we free ourselves from delay, make good decisions, and take decisive action?

1. Make decisions sooner:

It's easier to make decisions earlier than later. For example, if you hate your job, make a decision to leave sooner. Yes, be judicious and and collect information...but don't get into analysis paralysis or become scared of change. Set a date and prepare. Making bold decisions for yourself is the secret to moving your life forward. Ask,"What's decision have I been putting off in my personal life? What decision have I been waiting to make at work? What decision do I need to make in my relationships?" Avoidance may be the best short-term strategy to avoid pain and conflict, but it is also the best long-term strategy to ensure suffering. Stop putting it off, make that decision and stick to it.

2. Set criteria:

Criteria means you look at your decision making from three perspectives: What's good for you? What supports other people around you? What should the universal rule be for everyone faced with this decision? This means you seriously contemplate if decisions are right for you, honoring of others, and generally good for most people. What other criteria could you set? Create a “cheat sheet to good decision-making” with your own criteria and keep it by your computer and in your wallet. Consult it at every important decision.

3. Do intelligent research:

Bad decisions are often a result of acting without any information, listening to the wrong people or forcing a false choice. Intelligent research means collecting as much information as possible from informed people. There's nothing you want to achieve or overcome in your life that someone hasn't already achieved or overcome. Before you make your decision, go out and consult other informed, happy, smart, joyous, accomplished people who have done what you want to do. Often, you'll find it's not just a matter of choosing A or B, but rather there are a multitude of choices available to you.

Here's how to handle stress and become more peaceful, thoughtful and joyous:

1. Decide NOT to be a stress case. Are you allowing too much stress into your life? Keyword: Allowing. Most stress is not real and therefore you can make the intentional decision to not be as stressed anymore. In fact, most stress comes from one of two things: A false time crunch or making things more important than they really are. The truth is you have more time than you think to become focused, diligent, intentional and disciplined. Realize this, and stress melts away. Secondly, be willing to give yourself perspective. Ask, "How would my highest self view this? Remember: Whatever comes up, you got it. You can handle it.

2. Breathe: Most mental tension comes from physical tension, and taking in little sips of air leads to dealing worse with stress. Do this instead: Take in deeper breaths. Let your stomach out and allow it to fill up like a balloon with air. This will help you calm down. The deeper breathing you do, the more calm you can get yourself. Breathing is life; give yourself the gift of breathing it in.

3. Take A Walk: Leave your office or leave the house and go for a 20 to 40 minute stroll outside. When you are moving and breathing, this helps you open your mind and find more calm.

4. Get Organized: Most stress in our lives could be managed if we just organized it. Sometimes, just knowing that you are planning on handling something tomorrow at a specific time creates peace of mind now. Chunk out the hours of the day where you will move toward accomplishing those things that might be troubling you. When you get organized, you can better handle stress.

One of the most important decisions you will make in your lifetime is to better handle stress. Starting right now, decide not to be as stressed as you were last year or the year before. In doing so, you become happier, calmer and more present in your life and you get to experience what we call The Charged Life!

Here are 3 simple ways to slow time and experience the meaning, magic and beauty of life:

1. Heighten your senses.
When you are being more aware and present to the moment, it can feel like time s-l-o-w-s down. Do you remember times when moments seemed to slow down? That first kiss. Seeing your child graduate. An incredible meal or celebration that seemed to last forever.
These things seem to move in slow motion because the moment meant something to you and thus your awareness was heightened. To slow time, then, train yourself to heighten your senses. Breath more slowly and deeply. Pay more attention to the sounds and sights all around you. Broaden your awareness and take in more of your experience. These things help you slow time down and really experience life again.

2. Minimize the number of things you pay attention to.
Get rid of distractions and don’t pay attention to so many things. The more you multitask, the less you do things with excellence, the less fulfilled you feel and the less capable you become. Learn to say no more and take on fewer things. Evaluate your opportunities and pay attention to only those things that matter. For example, when your loved ones come home, meet them at the door and have a moment where there is nothing else but them. Make that moment all there is. Make it a moment of real connection. In these singular moments of focus time slows down and becomes more meaningful.

3. Focus on heightening your feelings.
Sometimes when we are overwhelmed, we numb out. When life is going so fast, a lot of people don’t feel…anything. We kiss our loved ones and we don’t even feel it because we are not there in the moment. But the more moments you create by feeling the emotions of others and tuning back into your emotions with greater depth, the more you will notice your days start to count.

Over time as you do these things, you won’t feel so distracted or stressed. You will sense more slow, emotional moments that you will enjoy and remember with fondness. You will start to feel life again, and you will start to experience what we call The Charged Life!

Sometimes your dreams for living a great life and having more personal freedom can seem so far away. Yet, no matter where you are on the path, never let your small beginnings make you small-minded. When people express that your ambitions are impossible, keep going. When your dreams don’t come true instantaneously, remember it is through struggle, effort and desire that you get from here to there.
Following your dreams isn’t foolish; what’s foolish is not believing in your dreams and following other peoples’ path instead of your own. You become who you want to become by enacting habits that move you forward every day. The choices and practices you make in life are the building blocks that build a better reality.

Often, you don’t even know what’s possible until you’ve marched towards your dream; only with momentum does the path reveal itself and the goal get clearer. Epiphanies come as you move toward something that matters.

Never let your current conditions or circumstances limit your vision or actions. Never let your current skill set limit your belief of what is possible for you or what you’re capable of. Wherever you are today, you can develop new habits to get you to your dream.

Success and fulfillment come from your unflagging ability to believe in what other people call impossible. Chase your dreams, believe in yourself and you will start to experience incredible levels of engagement and enthusiasm with life. No matter how small you start, start something that matters. Soon, you will begin to experience what we call The Charged Life!

We all want to be our best, but not just during short-bursts or when we need to be at our “peak.” We want to live and maintain our full potential, to reach and sustain what is called “high performance.” I often say, “the definition of high performance is succeeding above and beyond standard norms over the long-term.”

Here’s what I’ve learned about high performers as I’ve become the world’s most-followed (and highest-compensated) high-performance coach:

1.Clarity:

High Performers have uncommon clarity about three things: (a) who they are, (b) what they desire and, (c) how they intend to perform and interact with other people. By knowing these things, they can stay true to themselves, in their zone, and highly intentional. Without clarity, there is no way you can reach high performance. With clarity you are focused and limitless.

2. Energy:

High Performers experience and generate heightened and sustained levels of energy through training, discipline and focus. You can literally feel their energy because they’ve become present, vibrant and strong through their choices, nutrition, and conditioning.

3. Courage:

High Performers are more likely than others to speak up for themselves and to take more risks and bolder actions. They are intentionally courageous, knowing that their decisions and actions are forming a character that is either weak or strong. Their courage helps them get ahead because, when everyone else quits at the first signs of criticism or difficulty or risk, they march on.

4. Productivity:

High Performers simply produce more in the same amount of time as everybody else. They get into experiences deeper than others, and they become more efficient and prolific as well. That’s why they get ahead faster. How do they become more productive? They have more clarity, energy and courage!

5. Influence:

High Performers have better people skills; they give others more time, attention and caring, and as a result, other people admire, respect and help them. Their kindness and generosity draws people in, and often helps them be elevated to leadership positions. They simply tend to be exceptionally caring, good, fully contributing human beings.

The most important lesson I’ve learned is that High Performers are not born; they are conditioned by habit and practice. Sharpen, heighten and hone these five areas of High Performance and you will start to experience what we call The Charged Life!

We all have bad days. But why do some people seem engaged and happy more often? What’s the secret to having great mojo?

1. Let go of the past.
People with great mojo are free from the past. When they are with you, they are right there with you, vital and aware in the present moment. Let’s learn from them. Stop giving old stories so much mindshare. Give yourself the gift of freedom by letting go of old hurts and paying more attention to what is in front of you, taking in the sights and relationships with a new eye of awareness. The world has changed. People have changed. You have changed. So look at life anew again and you’ll find greater connection.

2. Shine real attention on others:
People with great mojo pay more attention to others. They make you feel like there’s no one else in the world but you. So, when is the last time you tried to make someone you’re talking to feel like the only person in the world? Do you really see and hear the person in front of you? Do you hang on their every word, listen for nuance, give them your full energy and focus?

3. Bring joy to every moment:
People with great energy have more joy and enthusiasm for what they experience, even the simple things. They take everything in with a greater level of gratitude. It’s as if they are a child unwrapping a gift at Christmas. They bring joy and enthusiasm to the moment and those around them. Perhaps life would come alive for all of us if we started looking for fun and joy in all we do. Always remember to bring the joy - that’s the gift you give to others.

4. Honor and respect others:
People with strong mojo listen closer; they understand and reflect back what you say. If you are struggling, they are attentive and feel there with you. When you mention your dreams, they cheer you on. No matter what’s going on in their life, they never judge, demean or make fun of you…they’re happy for you and excited for what you are doing. Mimic that - become invested in other people’s happiness, joy and aliveness and, soon, others will be inspired by your energy and presence.

Not all forms of so-called ‘authenticity’ are… well, the real thing. Keep these points in mind:

1. Be Authentic, Not Abusive: Some people use “authenticity” as an excuse to be socially abusive. They say something rude or demeaning to others and then justify it with a flippant, “Well, I was just being real and honest.” No, you were being rude and oblivious. In each of our hearts there is an authentic desire to speak our mind but also care for other people. Being discourteous flies in the face of the divine drive for connection. Not all your interpretations of others - and your opinions are interpretations, not truths - must be spoken. The good news is you can always be who you are, authentically, without discounting others.

2. Be Authentic, Not Fearful: A lot of people use genuineness as a shield or mask. They exclaim, “That’s just way I am!” or “Don’t tell me what to do! That’s not authentic tome!” or “I know what I like and who I am - I just don’t like that!” But there’s a difference between being authentic and being fearful. Boxing yourself into a belief about who you are and what you are capable of can diminish your growth. Being so “set in your ways” might seem authentic, but it can prevent you from learning, developing, evolving, attaining new skills and competencies.

3. Explore Who You Could Be. If you are stuck in life because you are too proud of who you are, maybe it’s time to explore who you could become. Ask yourself, “Who would I truly be if I were more courageous? Who would I have to become to grow into my highest self? What uncomfortable thing might I have to attempt in order to stretch and attain my dream? Stretching the conceptual boundaries of your belief and behavior is how you open yourself to the next level of success.

+Brendon Burchard  Owe you one Brendon. Yes, everything you have outlined above, is true. Thank you for providing insight in a manner, no one else can. I will endeavour to develop a greater sensitivity of others, and to be much more receptive. I would like to stress, that I did try. For example, a young student, who was clashing with myself continuously, I acknowledged her. It was undeniable, despite being 21, she did hold some valuable wisdom. I mentioned this to her "You, do have some wonderful insights".

Again, I do not know how you do it, or if you infact are taking the time to examine your followers, via sophisticated social media tools- ,however, your specificity and timing suggest to me you do :) Either this, or you are a God, and as much as I do like you, God stretches it ;) LOL

EDIT: I wanted to write this earlier. Yes, I am scared. Yes, it is fear. Yes, I am not growing in the manner that I should be- my development has stalled, and I have entered into a second childhood. However, what I do have is self awareness. I am working on all of this.

You are still the most important person, I have never met. I will get there Brendon, I absolutely will.  

Stay Blessed friend, and thank you.

How our mind works:

1. Information: Your mind consumes information from the environment or circumstance you're in...and it reacts to it. So what comes in matters. If you’re around negative people, your mind wants to mirror that negativity. If you’re around something inspiring, your mind mirrors that too. So be cautious about having negative information and people in your life because they shape your overall psychology. And be diligent about consuming positive, intelligent, and instructive information to strengthen your mind.

2. Interpretation: Once your mind takes in information, it interprets it by asking, "Is this good or bad? Is this safe or dangerous? Should I approach or avoid? What does this mean to me personally?" Interpretation defines things for us and tells us how meaningful something is. And that interpretation is primarily driven by past experiences, what we call conditioning. Self-mastery is really about learning to consciously interpret the information coming into our lives in an open and purposeful way, And part of mastering our relationships is learning how those we love interpret things.

3. Intention: Our intention of who to be can rewrite our history. It is our dominant intentions for who we want to be, how we want to interact with people, and what we want to create and contribute to the world that forms the real power of our mind. Imagine a burning building on fire. Some people might interpret danger and run, while someone else might have the intention to be a servant and hero and their intention overrides their interpretation of danger...and they run into the building to save people. It was their intention that overrode their immediate impulses - that’s consciousness and that’s heroism.

4. Initiative: Our mind is most shaped by our actual behavior. When we act cowardly by running away, remain silent, or refuse to take actions toward dreams that are important to us, our mind interprets this and says, "I'm weak, incapable or unworthy." Yet, when we take action and have initiative, our mind develops self-determination and self-regulation. Our actions of yesterday form the thrust of how we think today. The more positive actions we take the more positive our minds become.

When tragedy strikes or life knocks you down, how do you cope? What can we do to face life's most difficult moments with grace?

1. Don't hide or fall into silence thinking you are alone. When something bad happens, we tend to close off and not to talk to anyone because,"they don't understand me, " or "they haven't been through this." But, as harsh as it might sound when you are struggling, the reality is that nothing you are going through right now is unique... With seven billion people on the planet, and thousands of years of recorded history, please trust that someone has been through your circumstances. One of the greatest ways to cope is to realize you are not alone and to get social support. Ask to talk to someone. Call a friend. Go to a support group. You might be surprised to learn how many people care, how many have been through what you've been through, how many can help and provide perspective.

2. Define your meaning. When something bad happens, ask, "What does this mean to me?" and be bigger than thinking everything in life is permanent or your fault. Find an optimistic meaning for what you are going through, even if it seems like nothing good could come from it. You will get stronger if you decide the meaning of the event is there to teach you something, to allow you to grow, to urge you to change or be kind or take action. What lesson can be learned that will make you better or happier or more successful in the future?

3. Keep your perspective. Remember, you've been through tough times before and your circumstances will change. The struggle will lessen. It will hurt less one day. Trust things will improve. This too shall pass. Even if life suck right now, you have to believe things will get better, there will be light soon, you will make it through. Remember your blessings and strength and values and dreams... those things will keep you grateful and ready.

4. Keep a vision of the future that draws enthusiasm, excitement and engagement. No matter what, every single day, keep your enthusiasm for the day and for tomorrow alive. You control the meaning you give things, and thus the energy and emotion of your life. Keep a bright future at the forefront of your mind and everyday take at least one step toward it. You can do at least a few things today to move yourself forward. You are stronger than you imagine and a brighter day will be here soon.
