I don’t like New Year’s resolutions because they don’t work.
The reality is that you can start to change on any given day. So I’m not going to ask you to set a goal with an arbitrary timeline.
Instead, I want you to reflect on a few things. For starters, what are you going to do differently this year to lower your anxiety?
I want you to take a step back and really think about that.
After you and I stop stuffing our faces with cookies and pie (or is that just me?) this holiday season it’s time to get serious about your recovery.
Actually, I’ve already started the process. Today I went through my email list and deleted nearly 1,500 people from it.
I deleted people that were not opening my emails or engaging in a meaningful way.
Now I didn’t go nuts. I only deleted people that have been disengaged for more than 3 months. I figure those people aren’t serious about getting better.
Or maybe they weren’t ready to change, or maybe my site wasn’t a good fit; whatever the reason I am going to focus on those of you that are still here.
I don’t say this often, or maybe I never have, but you guys are special to me. I work on this site because I know exactly how you feel.
I’ve actually felt most of the symptoms you complain about. I have had a thousand fake heart attacks and just as many panic attacks.
The thing is, I don’t anymore. And I want the same thing for you. That means that I’m going to get more serious as well.
That means high quality podcasts, useful information and a bigger effort on my part to connect with you this year.
So, going back to my challenge, head to the comments section below and tell me about what you could do differently this year.
I think that’s a good start.
