Every one of us has suffered from anxiety at least ones in our life time and some people experience it often in their life. Anxiety attack, Panic Attacks and worrying are all part of Anxiety.

- Don’t Use Anxiety as an Excuse But Use It As An Tool.
The day you stop being nervous that is the day you should feel that there is something wrong in your life. It is OK to be afraid and nervous, but you should use it as a tool not an excuse.
For instance if you have stage fright, don’t say that since I feel nervous I will not perform, No! you should rather say that the only way I will be able to overcome my stage fright is by going out there and performing in front of the audience. You should challenge yourself each day. All the successful people in the world use their anxiety and weakness as their tool to become more confident. Develop plans to make yourself more confident and more emotionally strong so that slowly this anxiety starts to diminish.
- Find The Reason Behind Your Anxiety.
It is very important to understand the reason behind your Anxiety. You have to know where this anxiety exactly coming from. Whenever you feel anxious just sit down take a piece of paper or just use your mobile and write down these 3 questions-
- Why I am feeling so scared and anxious?

99% of the time your answer will be “yes I am over thinking and the things which I am worried about is not at all going to be happen in real life.” So stop thinking about it and be happy.

This way even if you feel that you lack on something you will be able to identify it and improve it. Ultimately things you felt anxious before, with you will feel more confident about them.
- Just relax!!
Stop taking yourself and life so seriously. You have just one life and you don’t want to spend most of your life worrying. If you keep worrying about the destination you will never be able to enjoy the journey. Smile as much as you can and love as much as you can.
Laugh and make others laugh as well!
