Creed – Anxiety
By Randy Hyde, Ph.D.
I have confidence that I can handle whatever comes up; it is onlya challenge or problem to be solved. I solve it with intelligence andthe help of trusted others. I can handle it. Problems and challengesare puzzles that need to be solved, and I have fun doing it.
“If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth”Mark 9:23. I am constantly planting incredibly confident, hopeful,optimistic, loving, positive, thankful thoughts. I instantly weed outof my mind doubts, negativity, insecurity, pessimism, fear, worry,anger. “Sow a thought, reap an action; sow an action, reap a habit;sow a habit, reap a character; sow a character, reap a destiny." Iam single minded – I choose to think that which is empowering.
I have stopped exaggerating the importance of things. I makemolehills out of mountains. I demonstrate and am an example ofgreat Optimism, and Love. I am a problem solver. I do not have avictim mentality; I take responsibility, I do not blame. I do not runfrom problems -- I run to problems and solve them. I do not panic,I think, and then I act decisively. I am the epitome of calmness,peace, and confidence. I am cool under pressure because I trustthe outcome. I inspire others to do the same.
I can only live in the moment – I give it all I have and live it the bestI can. I let the future take care of itself and trust that I will give itthe best I have -- it will all turn out, it always does. I trust myself.Mistakes and failures are inevitable and I welcome them as anopportunity to learn, grow, and develop into the kind of personI can be. The person who does not fail or make mistakes is notachieving, growing, or developing. I don’t sweat the small stuff.
“Our doubts are traitors that make us lose the good we oftmight win by fearing to attempt”. Shakespeare. I do notdoubt. I positively predict the future. I welcome challenges andopportunities to grow. I face my fears. “Life is either a daring adventure or it is nothing at all” Helen Keller. Whatever happens Ican handle it.
"That which we persist in doing becomes easier for us to do, notthat the nature of the thing itself is changed, but that our powerto do is increased" Emerson. As I practice I will learn to controland govern and create great thoughts that are empowering andpeaceful and loving. It will soon become a habit that is secondnature; then it will become my personality and character. I am loyalto myself. I take care of myself. I am tolerant, patient and forgivingwith myself. I love my good heart. I am just a human being thatis growing, developing, and becoming. I will nurture, be kind andgentle and encouraging with myself, just as I am with others. WhatI do does not have to be perfect. I do not have to be better thanothers – I just simply have to try, and be well-satisfied with myefforts. Life is not a race or a competition. It is a loving cooperationwhere we all help and support each other based on our several talents, skills, and abilities.
"A man is literally what he thinks” James Allen, As a Man Thinketh.It all happens in my mind. Every thought and every word has powerand a consequence – I think and speak magnificently! Thoughtsand words are real strength.
I live fully and magnificently and enthusiastically in the Now – I amconstantly having a Blast. I cannot relive the past, I cannot live thefuture; I can only live in the immediate now – herein lies real peaceand strength.
I go to bed satisfied with the day & let tomorrow take care ofitself. I mentally create, visualize success and plan for theday in the morning. It gives me time to relax, be calm andpeaceful. I relax my mind and body. It’s my time. I love my bed.It’s cozy, comfortable, and peaceful. It is a time for my mind andbody to recover. I have peaceful, relaxing, happy thoughts and visualizations.
The greater the pressure the more I relax, that is how Michael
