Build Self-Esteem to Stop Panic Attacks
At this point, you will move to self-acceptance by learning to respect yourself for who you are to avoid panic attacks.
You will be asked to evaluate your self-worth and overall ideas about yourself. You will need to review your self-esteem. Our goal is to help you work toward accepting yourself as who you are. But, you must be willing to change in order to succeed with your goals. There is nothing wrong with you per se; rather, it is the way you behave and think that causes your panic attacks. Don't worry; millions of people have the same problem, which is why we are here to help you master your panic attacks.
Now it is time to build your self-esteem in order to help you overcome panic attacks. This is your sense of worth and self-respect. Instead of seeing yourself as a failure, start visualizing yourself as a successful person. Think about your goals and what you want to accomplish in your life.
First, if you want to overcome panic attacks, you must face your fears no matter what they are. This is the first step toward regaining your self-esteem, because our fears are what damage our self-esteem.
We all, at some point in our lives, fail at something. This is just human nature. The trick is to be able to let those failures go and take only the lessons from them. Each failure always presents you with the opportunities to learn from your mistakes. Taking those lessons and applying them to your life will transform your self esteem.
Another step you can take toward overcoming panic attacks is to change your mental attitude, which in turn will change your behavior, and thus improve your self-esteem. Changing mental attitude means exchanging negative thoughts with positive ones.
Self reward is another technique you can use to raise your self esteem and overcome panic attacks. With self-reward you do something special for yourself when you succeed at something or accomplish a goal. Self reward is not really about doing that special thing for yourself, but more about self recognition, praising yourself and having genuine pride about your accomplishment.
Most people get into a comfort zone and refuse to leave it. This is a big mistake made by many people because in order to succeed you must take risks. No, we do not mean to run out and put your life in danger; rather, we mean that life is filled with healthy risks we all have to take sometimes to get where we want to be.
