You have made your decision. Something in your life is going to change. A new job, a change of address, becoming a non-smoker, incorporating exercise into your daily life, improved eating habits…….the list is endless. We all have something in our lives which we could change, but how do you keep going when it gets to be a struggle?
Suppose you were asked “Do you want to learn how to make more money than you are currently earning? What would your first reaction be? What did “that voice” in your head first say?

Do you know someone or perhaps you are that person who continually talks about what they are going to do and going to achieve?
Anxiety. Fear. Panic. Are these words part of your every day life? These emotions are common in many people’s lives. They are wired into our brain as a self-preservation mechanism. For example, we may be in our car when suddenly a person on a motorbike drives in front of you. The fear of hitting this motorbike and its rider activates our minds to take defensive action. This is healthy fear – an awareness and avoidance and respect for potentially dangerous things in our lives.
