"Once we get into patterns of thinking, we forget that those patterns itself are habits"

Ideas

1

Anxiety is actually a positive thing because it's a signal that something's wrong.
If we didn't have anxiety, we'd be missing one of the ways to understand that something isn't going well.

We often think of anxiety as a negative thing because of how we react and add our own narrative to it, where in reality, the emotion itself is only there to serve us.

We should aim to be comfortably uncomfortable.
In order to grow and push yourself, you have to be able to handle what's uncomfortable.

And the only way to become better at dealing with what's uncomfortable, is to practice going through it, realizing that it's worth it, and telling yourself you're going to be okay.

Most of us need to be heard first, before we need to hear a solution.
And often, we already know what the solution is, we just want to be heard.

Whenever someone presents to you a problem they're having, first ask, whether they're looking for a solution, or they're just looking for you to listen.
