Anxiety & Panic - Make Your Information Work for You
Whether you suffer from anxiety and panic attacks or not, there is a lesson in here for everyone.
Some year's back my husband and I got our selves into a bit of a pickle where money is concerned (probably something quite a few people can relate to). Of course I wanted to fix this problem (money woes can really put a strain on you and your relationship).
So what did I do?
I went out and bought books on making money. One of them you would probably be familiar with "Rich Dad and Poor Dad". It sure got a lot of hype; I went out and bought it right after watching a promotion about it on Oprah.
With each of my books I read maybe a chapter from each and then placed them on my book shelf (where they collected dust). Wow! That was a bad investment on my part. But it didn't have to be! After all I did buy these books to fix a "problem".
Chances are; had I read these books but also APPLIED the methods (after all they were written by people who are very wealthy) I would have made an extremely wise investment.
I certainly didn't make the same mistake again when I invested money into finding a cure for my anxiety and panic disorder. This time round I was grasping the fact that if I didn't at least apply and try these methods then I may as well grabbed my dollar bills and flushed them down the s-bends (the toilet incase that's some aussie jargon term).
So my advice to you is this, EVERY time you invest in information don't just read it, apply it. You bought it to fix a problem didn't you? Just reading information alone does not fix the problem you need to actively "try and apply".
Now when I buy information I make it work for me. Whether I paid $10 or $1,000 to obtain that information I get my investment back on it a thousand times over, simply by achieving and getting what I wanted from it in the first place.
