“Anxiety Is Either A Punishment, Or An Awakening.”
The perceiving of the anxiety struggle leads to a mindset. The mindset either leads towards deeper pain, or greater insight.

In episode #151 of the anxiety guy podcast I’m excited to show you:
- Where people go wrong with labelling themselves
- How anxiety can lead to the greatest version of you
- How to begin thinking of your anxiety struggles for maximum progress today
