Recognize that they are tech savvy, educated and have a lot more information;
Be transparent. They can see right through …

The philosophy of Boston Celtics head coach Brad Stevens is, “My goal is to win the next game one possession at a time. That’s it. I don’t have any other goals.”

The Anxiety and Depression Association of America says:

“Most people feel anxious or depressed at times. Losing a loved one, getting fired from a job, going through a divorce, and other difficult situations can lead a person to feel sad, lonely, scared, nervous, or anxious. These feelings are normal reactions to life’s stressors.
But some people experience these feelings daily or nearly daily for no apparent reason, making it difficult to carry on with normal, everyday functioning. These people may have an anxiety disorder, depression, or both.”

A post from a year ago: The question was recently asked by an awesome coach, “What do you learn when you fail?” How interesting. We should all ask ourselves that. The things that hurt instruct, if we are willing to accept that instruction. — Martha

Be dependable and committed. I know it’s easier for me to trust people who display those qualities. Credibility is part of the framework of trust. When we are dependable, trustworthy and committed, people trust us. More importantly, it continues to teach us how important those qualities are and allows us to have a better view of ourselves and contributes to our overall wellness. mlr

Our actions speak loudly to our team mates, business associates, work mates, friends and family. Let’s make sure they are good. It’s one of the things that a healthy life are made of. :) mlr

Say what you mean and mean what you say. This will help us think about our decisions, which helps us emotionally and mentally, which also helps our physical health. It also develops character, which allows people to trust us, which helps in our relationships, which helps us emotionally and … . Oh, it’s a circle. mlr

All of us experience anxiety to some degree and from time to time. If you are in the business of marketing, you are marketing yourself and your company’s products or services. If your anxiety occurs often and is significant enough, it can become an overwhelming obstacle. The longer it continues at that level the worse it can and will get.

Anxiety will not go away by itself. Like everything in life and your career, you must take positive personal steps to overcome it. Your personal and professional life will suffer immensely if you don’t do something to address it. The below article contains some exercises that can and will help you. You need to retrain your brain.

 Anxiety

There are some interesting perspectives here that can really help. They fall into several categories that begin with: Don’t even talk to anyone, and then talk to people while eliminating any chance of rejection. Be curious and ask genuine questions. The answers will follow, easily. Quiet your mental chatter in that moment. Your self-talk is more powerful than you think. Have fun play games and even bet your friends. Avoid over thinking. Fear is a gift of life. It means you’re still alive; you’re still breathing (even if it is heavy).

Like many lines of work, rejection exists within my business and therefore I am exposed to anxiety-related situations regularly. There is no question that approaching someone that I find attractive as a potential customer can trigger those feelings of anxiety. I HAVE TO overcome them. It is my livelihood. Remember, yes is a good answer, but no can be good because it is one step closer to the next yes. Do some positive things today that will help you overcome and enjoy a better life and career. Don’t let anxiety win. It is the most important battle you will fight.
