Typical Questions about Anxiety Disorder

The questions that arise about the cause and effect of Anxiety Disorders, including GAD or Generalized Anxiety Disorder, are remarkably similar from person to person.   The most prevalent questions are the theme of this article.

First, however, a clearing of the air regarding what is an anxiety disorder and where does it fit in the larger spectrum of psychological disorders and psychoses.  An Anxiety Disorder – and a panic attack – is a condition which arises when the pressures and stresses of everyday life combine to cause us to view ordinary issues as monumental and worthy of extreme fear – such is the case in Generalized Anxiety Disorder – to anxiety disorders driven by either a past, traumatic event – such is the case in Post Traumatic Stress Disorder -or other sources of increased stress or worry. The best news for sufferers of these anxiety disorders is that they are not permanent psychoses or mental illness. Nonetheless, they are conditions requiring professional help and even medication.

Here are the most common questions about anxiety disorders – other than what is it and how can I cure it.

1.  Why can’t I control my constant worry about things I know are insignificant issues?  The answer to this question is that you can control it; you just don’t yet possess the skills to do so.   Why this looping of occurrence, focus-on-issue, visualize-negative-outcome possibilities, and fixate on the most extreme, tends to exist is that your conscious mind is seeking a solution in a cognitive way, while your subconscious is replaying past outcomes that may have been worse than predicted. Since the anxiety episode is unresolved, there is established a precondition for another episode and another. 

2. Why do I sometimes feel like I’m not really where I am – a feeling of total detachment?    The answer to this question is contained within basic human mind functionality.   Extreme, constant anxiety and fear cause your mind to become detached and seeking rest from unresolved questions – at the same time that your subconscious tirelessly continues feeding your cognitive processes with illogical probabilities.  The end result is that your conscious mind will zone out, causing you to feel like you’re not really there – producing the ‘out-of-body’ feeling you’re referring to.

3.  Is my condition noticeable to others and can it harm my family or relationships?  The effect of your condition may indeed bring about negative effects -including an anxiety attack – in your life but not the episodes themselves.  Are your episodes or predisposition to ponder negative thoughts obvious to others?  Probably to some degree but this is not very high on the list of priorities unless it alters your work performance.

Support of life coaching?

I am signed up take a life coaching group. I told a friend this who said it was a waste of money and that I shouldn’t pay a life coach because that is what I have friends for.

My goal is to find a deeper fulfillment to life and stop disempowering behaviors to better achieve life goals. She said the group is unnessary. She also said this makes me an existentialist?

What do you think?

there are many good life coaches. finding the right one will do wonders for you

Motivation: a Tonic for the Workforce

The bedrock on which any organisation rests is its char­acteristic mix of the resources of money, materials, machine, and men’ All but one of  these ‘M’resources are inert. It’s only the resource which can breathe life into the other resources might not necessarily be willing to productive. But the human resources might not’ necessarily be willing to productive­ly utilise the other resources, unless It is guided into and through a state of motivation, a state of enkindled and energised being. The behaviour of a man is the outcome of the operation of Intrinsic and extrinsic factors at a giving point of time. Thus, It is purpose — oriented, goal directed, or simply put, behavior Is motivated. The key, therefore, to understanding motivation and Imbibing the same among the employees, lies in understanding human behaviour, the motives and drives that initiate the same. And this fortunately, can come from and can be created by the human resource itself.

In general, motivation has two different meanings. One refers to the behaviour initiation process — what initiates a particular behav­iour, why people behave as they do, why does the behaviour take a cer­tain direction and not the other. The other refers to human needs and the ways and means to satisfy those needs. The quest is, however, on to understand what motivation Is and how it can be ingrained in the employees. Broadly, they can be categorised into the context approach — related to the work set­tings, and the content approach — related to need satisfaction. Howev­er, just understanding and follow­ing those studies do not help moti­vate people in the workplace. Situa­tions in the workplace have changed. Moreover, most of the epoch-making studies have been conducted abroad in a different economic set-up and working con­ditions. Going by logic, it is expect­ed that employees at different places would respond differently to economic gains, working conditions and other opportunities. With socio-economic conditions chang­ing across the globe, the human expectancy level has also been con­stantly changing. Motivation, In fact, has to be understood with the presumptions that employees are not alike, that their needs and motives are conditioned by the socio-economic conditions, and that it is an ever-changing, efferves­cent and dynamic process. The quest for the best approach to understanding the motivation of employee, thus begins and ends in the employee himself  herself.

Providing positive contexts for jobs, however, remains significant for employee motivation. The ‘hygiene factor’ — good working conditions, safety at the workplace, job security, fair wages, etc, as enunciated by Herzberg In the late 50s, provide for prevention of dis­satisfaction. Once attention has been paid to these factors. It does not necessarily mean that people are satisfied and motivated. To pro­vide for that, it is necessary to attend to qualitatively different fac­tors — sense of achievement from job, recognition, nature of work, possibilities of development and promotion etc. The nature of work in fact, accounts for a considerable part of an employee motivation. Redesigning jobs to bring In more appeal for the employees, provid­ing greater challenges and greater sense of responsibility and personal growth opportunity, paves the way for greater motivation. The critical requirements for enriching an employee’s job are that the employ­ee should find meaning in the job in terms of skill variety that the job demands, task Identity and talks significance; the employee should be given sufficient autonomy; and the fob should provide for feedback to the employee The buzzword here is empowerment. Empower­ment is simply giving the power to make the employees’ voice heard, to contribute to plans and decisions that affect them, to use their exper­tise at work to Improve their perfor­mance.

Does positive thinking really work?

We all have times where we think

" What if this happens or what if that happens ?"

If we change all our negative ( what if ) thoughts into positive ones can we essentially "What if "
a better life ? Does anybody believe that we can make good things come into our life by positivity ?

yes
your active thoughts program your subconscious mind
your subconscious mind makes unconscious decisions on how you act in the world, defines your tone of voice, your expressions and even your levels of expectations

depending on how you act, you create your own environment

positive and "nice" people are also attracted to people who express themselves positively, and it is easy to see past the guise of a person who acts like he thinks positively

Do you think you would benefit from ”life coaching” ?

Hi there I live in London, and am just starting as a life coach.
”coaching” can be lots of different things for example you could be at a crossroads in your life and or career and need advice, maybe you have depression, low self esteem, no motivation, maybe coaching could help, Anyway the reason for the posting is I would like to find out if there is a need for my services , as I said I’m based in london , get in touch .

No. I don’t need someone telling me how to live. Life is about finding out something. I would feel really stupid if I had someone helping me to live.

How To Maximize Personal Development By Instantly Stopping Mental Spam

Did you know that the one solitary reason why people fail in their personal development efforts is because they allow their own belief systems to get in the way?

You will find people who say that there were circumstances beyond their control that made them have to step away from their self improvement efforts, but that is very rarely the truth of the matter.

Yes, it is possible for life to throw up roadblocks that you have to hurdle, but if you are truly dedicated to making improvements in your life, you will find a way to get over, under, or around any roadblock that is put in your way.

However, since the most powerful gift that any human being has is their mind, that power can be used to trip you up just as easily as it can be used to lift you to new heights.

In fact, in a society that is filled with a seemingly never-ending supply of negativity, an increasing lack of free time, and a continually growing list of tasks that any given person is called upon to do, it is no surprise that people have trouble staying on track with their personal development efforts.

The trick to breaking out of that vicious cycle is to recognize that it is your own mind that is allowing you to believe that the circumstances of your life have the power to get in your way, and then redirecting your mind whenever that happens.

Let’s say for example that you are in the process of becoming financially secure. You are focusing on that goal, and you are inspired to take action on business ventures, create new products, or offer new services.

The normal course of the human thought process is to then immediately start to think about all of the things that are going to stand in the way of your success.

Maybe the business venture that you want to get involved with will require resources that you don’t have easy access to. Maybe the products that you want to create will require a large expenditure of time. Perhaps you don’t see an easy way to offer the new service that you have been thinking of.

Another example could be that of weight loss. You decide that you are finally going to buckle down and start exercising and eating right, and you get excited about the more healthy (and smaller) person that you are going to become.

Once again, your mental roadblocks jump in the way. You start to think about how much time it is going to take you to workout every day. You give thought to how much more difficult it is going to be to prepare and have access to healthy foods. You start to think about how physically and mentally busy you already are, and how cleaning up your health is going to cause even more strain on your life.

There are endless examples just like the two that were listed with regard to finances and health, but the process is always the same. You decide to make some positive changes in your life, but then you talk yourself right out of doing it.

The simple way to stop this process is to come up with a word or a phrase that you can use to immediately sweep away the negative and disempowering thoughts that come to mind when you are considering your personal development efforts.

It could be a simple power word like “Next!” or something more in-depth such as “I am in control of my ability to accomplish _________________, and nothing is going to stand in my way!”

You can come up with any word or phrase that works for you on a personal level, but the key to achieving success with this method is to consistently use it – especially in the first 30 days of your personal development efforts.

It is a well-known fact that it takes anywhere from 3 to 4 weeks for a new habit to become fully ingrained into our lifestyle, and that fact applies to mental thought processes as well as the actual tasks that are involved in your self improvement efforts.

This method seems simplistic, which is exactly why many people will think that it is not effective. Another negative human habit is that we tend to only give value to something if we have to spend a lot of money for it, or if it is something that is going to require a huge effort on our part.

This simple but effective self improvement technique does not fit either of those descriptions. Rather it is amazingly powerful, yet ridiculously simple.

Whenever you have a disempowering thought, you immediately dismiss it. Whether those thoughts come out at random intervals, or if they are constantly popping up on a frequent basis, the solution is the same. Dismiss every disempowering thought with your power word or phrase every single time that such a thought crosses your mind.

Before you know it, not only will you have consistently taken action on whatever your initial goal was, but you will have simply and easily reprogrammed yourself for continued success in the future as well. You will also have built a rock-solid base of self-confidence that you will be able to rely on for the rest of your life!

The Power of Positive Imagining

When  Norman Vincent Peale wrote “The Power of Positive Thinking”, he was a addressing a very important problem that we humans all tend to suffer from to a greater or lesser extent while in physical form.  He was talking about self-confidence and belief in oneself.  The opening sentences of his book are,  “Believe in yourself!  Have faith in your own abilities!  Without a humble but reasonable confidence in your own powers you cannot be successful or happy.  But with sound self-confidence you can succeed.” 

Just a little further on, he continues, “It is appalling to realize the number of pathetic people who are hampered and made miserable by the malady popularly called the inferiority complex.  But you need not suffer from this trouble.  When proper steps are taken, it can be overcome.  You can develop creative faith in yourself – faith that is justified.”

Norman Vincent Peale was right, of course.  His book should be mandatory reading for humanity.  But a strange thing has happened over time.  People have lost sight of what his concept of positive thinking was all about.

Today, with our “make it easy”  mindset, we have tried another path of least resistance.  “Thinking” has become just words, mind-chatter, and maybe affirmations repeated endlessly.  We have lost sight of the true power and force – emotion.

The difference between simply thinking and imagining is emotion.  When we think, we talk to ourselves, most often clinically, sterilely and with every effort to be objective.  When we imagine, we get in the feeling of what we are thinking.  When we imagine, we move for a time, into the place that we imagine.  We can touch, feel, hear, smell, taste the thing we imagine.  Of course, the thought of the thing is there, but it is accompanied by emotion.

When we positively imagine our life, we make changes.  When we see our life as we want it to be and feel that life, we create that life.  As Neville Goddard has said, when we “live in the feeling of the wish fulfilled”, we are on our way to manifesting that wish.

More than positive thinking, more than positive sounding words or pleasant mind-chatter, real change comes from positive imagining.  Living with all the good the feelings of the thing we are thinking and dreaming about.  Of course, positive thinking is better than negative thinking anytime…but when change is what you want, put emotion into the thought and turn it into positive imagining.
