Quick post today as I'm jammed up with work for the Beyond Seduction Event which is now sold out!!
I just got back from a Kickboxing workout and I realized how much easier kickboxing is if you don't smoke cigarettes all weekend. This was after last week where I needed 5 minutes just to get up after sparring.
What I noticed last week was that as the training went on during the week (and I refrained from the cigarettes) the cardio was less tiring.
Which leads me to the following.
Most guys make the mistake of assuming that approach anxiety is like some sort of virus that can be completely eliminated with the right magic elixir of beliefs, experience, etc...
This is flat out wrong.
Instead you want to think about Approach Anxiety as if it's cardiovascular fitness.
The more of it you do (meaning approaching) the easier it is. The less of it you do, the harder it becomes.
Even for me, if I don't talk to anyone for a few days, I can feel the same difficulty in making the push to start again.
So stop looking for a magic pill, and instead take step everyday to improve your ability to deal with Approach Anxiety as opposed to looking to eliminate it entirely.
