Finding The Answers In Managing Your Fears, Anxieties, And StressesWritten by Stan Popovich
As an author of an anxiety book, I have dealt with fear and anxiety for over fifteen years. At times, my fears had best of me, however I never gave up and I was always determined to find answers to my problems. Let me explain to you process of how I found those answers.
I first went to my local bookstore to find those books that dealt with fear and anxiety. I looked for those books that reviewed techniques in how to manage certain fears and anxieties. As I read these books, I started a notebook and every time I found a technique that was useful in managing my fears, I would write it down in my small notebook.
Secondly, I interviewed various professionals in psychology and religious fields and they provided me with additional information. Some of techniques that they talked about were learning how to use positive self talk, using thought stopping techniques, and gathering facts of a fearful situation.
For instance, a person should visualize a red stop sign in their mind when they encounter a fear provoking thought. The stop sign is a reminder to stop focusing on that thought and to think of something else. This technique is good in dealing with obsessive and scary thoughts. I also learned that it is important to get all of facts of a situation that gets us all upset. Gathering facts can prevent us from relying on exaggerated and fearful assumptions.
Your choice of music can shape your beliefsWritten by Joe Duchesne
Music is very powerful. The kind of music you listen to says a lot about who you are. What music you choose to listen to today will help to determine what type of person you are tomorrow. Be careful about what type of music you choose to listen to. Music can either build you up or tear you down.
Garbage in, garbage out
In almost all categories of music, there are artists that deliver positive messages through their music and then there are artists that deliver destructive, hateful messages in their music. The kind of music you choose to listen to will help determine level of success you achieve in life.
Think negative thoughts and you will attract negative into your life. Think about positive things and you will see positive in your life. Opportunities come to optimists in life. When you entertain negativity in your life, opportunities are often lost or ignored to your peril.
Use Positive Music to get what you want out of life
Actively choose music with a positive message to listen to. Making this conscious choice will lead to positive experiences in your daily life. Music has a powerful effect on our beliefs and our actions. Being proactive in choosing music we listen to will lead to a happier and fulfilling life. If you aren't happy with current state of your life, a great place to start changing it for better is to choose better music to listen to.
