A lovely client of mine really hit the nail on the head when he said, for years he had been choreographing the dance of fear. He had laid the groundwork, he had put effort into it and practiced it day after day until he was really good at it. Result he was successfully anxious. I said don't go on the dance floor and certainly don't practice something you don't want to be good at. If this sounds like good advice give it a like.
