Key Ideas

Identify must-have goals

Try imagining yourself when you are 80 years old, nearing the end of your life. Look back on your life as if you had not achieved the goal you are after at this moment in your life. What are your regrets? What do you wish you had made more time for? Is there sadness and regret?  

Success is Adopting a Growth Mindset

People often give up on what they want because they believe that reaching their goal is beyond their abilities. But successful people, when faced with a setback, try harder. They adapt and adopt a new strategy.

Pain offers insight

Failure, disappointment, dead-ends – these can all be used as a means of reflecting. We are built to adapt. So we should use each experience as a tool to learn more about ourselves and what we really must have in life.

Failure is an impactful teacher

There is no lesson in resilience better than the burn of rejection. But if you use these experiences and adjust your strategy and approach the next time around, you will have an advantage that no one else does.

Define the Problem in Writing

Write a clear description of your problem, the answer to the question, “What exactly am I worrying about?”

Fully 50% of all problems can be solved at this definition stage. Many of our worries exist because we have not taken the time to sit down and really define clearly what it is that is bothering us.

The Worst Possible Outcome

Write out the worst possible outcome of the worry situation. Answer the question, “What is the worst possible thing that can happen as a result of this problem?”

It is resistance to facing the worst possible outcome that causes most of the anxiety and stress associated with worry. Writing it down will take away its power.

The reason behind the fear of abandonment

Generally, people who have a fear of abandonment feel they are not worthy of being loved.

When a child is attached to someone, and the person leaves them, they are left feeling that they were not fully loved. Even though this is likely not the truth, the child will wonder what made them unlovable. As an adult, they may still feel there is something about them that makes them not worthy. They often believe they should control things so that the person doesn't leave them.
