Hey good friends, I'm in negotiations for a possible new job. It's an exiting opportunity for advancement and is right up my alley in terms of interest and experience. But it also comes with more responsibility, expectations, and longer hours. I probably won't know anything about the status of the job for a week or so, but I know I stand a very good chance of getting it. While I'm maintaining a fairly calm outward appearance, inside my guts are churning. I feel like I'm in a semi-constant state of "fight or flight". All the old feelings are niggling at me... fear/anxiety, feelings of inadequacy (I'm not good enough), fear of failure and the need to be perfect, feeling I need to make everyone happy (my potential new employer, my current employer, my wife)... I could go on. So... how do you calm your anxiety? How do you turn-off the non-stop flight or fight response? FYI - I have been doing some meditation and journaling. I thought it would be good to get some fellowship here. Thanks in advance!
