Hoo boy! "The" exam determining whether or not I get my RMT license is in 10 days. Studying has been going well but every now and again I'll feel this overwhelming FEAR. Fear of failure. Sometimes I worry to the point of INACTIVITY....I've come so far what if I fail after all this time? There is so much riding on this..."And let the worry-fest begin!"

Fear: False Evidence Appearing Real.

 With fear comes anxiety and irrational thoughts, and when I'm experiencing thoughts get jumbled, my mind is in all directions and things seem worse than they really are.  But when I pause, take some deep body responds to that breath...and soon my thoughts follow, slowing down and I am able to see things clearly:

I've learned all this before it's actually easier this time as I've grasped the concept. (For those who don't know for this test I am responsible for the anatomy and physiology of all the systems of the body, as well as pathologies, massage therapy ethics and research, treatments, assessments and remedial exercise knowledge) 

For every moment I spend panicking  is a moment I lose studying


  "Inaction breeds doubt and fear. Action breeds confidence and courage. If you want to conquer fear, do not sit home and think about it. Go out and get busy.
