Anxiety provides energy towards making your next move. It excites your heart and helps accelerate the thought process. Research supports the idea of “healthy levels of stress or anxiety” regarding performance both physically and mentally. It’s when anxiety overcomes our determination that we get into trouble. We second guess ourselves to the point of immobility. We compare ourselves to other, reducing our own accomplishments to nothing. Without anxiety, we wouldn’t strive to be better. With overwhelming anxiety, we stop believing we can be better.
