How to Overcome Anxiety With Brute Force
Show Notes

Today I want to talk about anxiety. There are thousands of books, millions of articles, and many podcasts about how to get rid of or deal with anxiety. I can’t tell you how to get rid of anxiety, I still have some and I know that I’m going to have some level of it for the rest of my life. But I’m cool with that because I’ve learned how to overcome the anxiety that was holding me back and make it my bitch.  

So, in this episode, I’m going to teach you how to use brute force and ACT therapy so that you can do it too.  

I'll cover: 

  • What it's like to have anxiety and why it sucks. 
  • The differences in how cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and acceptance and commitment (ACT) therapy treat anxiety.
  • How I used ACT and brute force to overcome my anxiety.
  • How you can set goals and committed action to do it tool.
