Almost everyone has an irrational fear or two. Some get nervous at the thought of needles. Others shriek at the sight of a mouse. Still others get woozy when they look down from tall buildings. For most people, these fears are minor. But for some, these fears are so severe that they cause tremendous anxiety and interfere with normal day-to-day life. When fears are irrational and disabling, they are called phobias. If you're living in fear because of your phobia, take hope. You can overcome phobias and fears with the right treatment and self-help strategies.
For years there's been a silent epidemic of powerful negative emotions, controlling everyday people. People who you think have their act together, but are silent sufferers from all sorts of painful emotional problems.
A phobia is an intense fear of something that, in reality, poses little or no actual danger. Common phobias and fears include closed-in places, heights, driving, flying insects, snakes, spiders and needles. However, we can develop phobias of virtually anything. Most phobias develop in childhood, but they can also develop in adults.
If you have a phobia, you probably realize that your fear is unreasonable, yet you still can't control your feelings. Just thinking about the thing you fear may make you anxious. And when you're actually exposed to your phobia, the terror is automatic and overwhelming.
The experience is so nerve-wrecking that you may go to great lengths to avoid it - inconveniencing yourself or even changing your lifestyle. If you have claustrophobia, for example, you might turn down a lucrative job offer if you have to ride the elevator to get to the office. If you have a fear of heights, you might drive an extra twenty miles in order to avoid a tall bridge.
That's right CEOs, housewives, truck drivers, salespeople, presidents, children, business owners, employees and more, are either experiencing or have at some point experienced some form of emotional problem which manifests as a fear or phobia, and chances are you're one of them, or you know one of them.
Maybe you or someone you know already suffers from a fear of spiders, heights, flying, dentists, public speaking, closed spaces, water, dogs, mice, rats and the list could go on and on and on.....
When you look at the above list, you realize that most of the problems stem from a deep seated emotional fear of some kind. And when we're fearful our body goes into protection mode, causing it to gain weight or act irrationally or impulsively as our body's protection mechanism goes into gear.
Stress & anxiety are major side-effects of the above problems, and while EVERYONE has stress to a certain extent, many people just haven't been taught to manage it effectively and it "RUINS" their lives.
It causes a vicious cycle of many different areas of emotional pain, destructive behaviour and self-torment which is now totally unnecessary. With the "Emotional Management Technique" you can regain your point of power and take control of your mind, emotions and physical body.
