"I'll never be good enough" When the fear that you'll always be insignificant controls your life

You can't escape it...

The constant worry that you'll stagnate and become meaningless?

You've had this strong need to feel significant all your life?

That's why you worked hard to be ahead at school. That's why you put in so much hours into work...

But despite all that hard work, you're still not where you want to be in life. So now you’re afraid you'll never be successful and have the life you’ve dreamt of. It's like you lack the "x" factor that really successful people have.

This fills you with doubt about your capabilities…  Causing you to question everything in your life including your own worth. Making you feel incredibly hopeless that you're running out of time.

Bottom line...

You hate to feel this way.

You want to be able to handle your weaknesses, insecurities, and issues without feeling bad every day about settling for less or being less!

How to use acceptance to overcome anxiety (A nifty little trick that uses acceptance to crush anxiety problems)

How can you accept anxiety when it makes you feel so awful?

How can you embrace anxiety when it gives you a headache... tightens your chest and face... Makes your legs go weak and your heart go fluttery?

Isn't it unhealthy to have too much adrenaline rushing around your body all the time?

In the heat of a highly anxious state, you only remember that you were meant to be accepting anxiety afterwards. Then you go through another cycle of frustration with yourself for not being able to accept the anxiety. This then triggers even more anxiety...

And It just goes on and on like this none stop!

How do you practically accept anxiety when this feels so impossible to do?

How to stop being paranoid that everyone hates you

Have you heard this annoying useless advice before?

They say...

“Only an insecure person, who doesn't know who they are and is scared to be themselves is afraid of other people thinking badly of them.”

Then they say…

“If you can just do what you want and stop caring about what others think, you’ll nip this fear at its roots.”

Yeah right!

As if it is that easy.

First of…

Would you tell pedophiles, murderers and rapists to do what they want and not care about what others think?

How to stop fear from ruling your life and impacting your mental health

Are you afraid of everything?

I don't mean fear of spiders, needles or things like that.

But rather, do you spend a ton of time feeling afraid of "what ifs?"

You worry about feeling anxious.

You worry about feeling weak.

You worry about feeling stupid if any of the things you fear should happen. And sadly, this dictates your happiness and well-being.

As an example, let’s say...

Are you tormented by anxiety even though you're highly functional?

You know that feeling...

The feeling you get as soon as you wake up in the morning...

Telling you it's going to be a bad day.

You have no evidence for this, but you've had to battle this gut-wrenching tension so many times before.

It's the day you feel vulnerable inside.... 

And you have to muster all your energy to breathe and calm yourself down throughout the day,. 

Because when you feel like this, you can't really experience your life. You don't enjoy your job, you don't enjoy family, you don't sleep well, you don't eat well.

It's like anxiety is ripping you apart limb from limb.

But what can you do about this feeling?

Can't stop over analysing things? Here's a tip on how your beloved PET can help you beat the over thinking problem in 30 days

Stacey came to me with this huge frustration

"I find myself over thinking every possible threat or minor thing in my life, so much so, they gain control over me and become all too consuming."

She continued…

“If not for Maple, I would have ended everything by now”

Maple is the name of her dog, an adorable Cavalier King Charles Spaniel.

She continued…

“The problem is that although I love every moment I spend with her, the minute I have to put her down, all the negative painful thoughts come rushing back.” 

Sounds familiar?

You know how those negative thoughts keep flooding back as soon as you stop doing something engaging or important?

Well, in this article I’d like to share how Stacey used my Bonjela Technique, and the comfort she experienced from Maple her Cavi, to overcome her persistent over thinking problem in 30 days.

I call this technique the Ultimate Pet Support Method.

Then I’ll show you where you can download a 100% free worksheet that walks you through exactly how she did it, so that you can potentially get similar or better results.
