What to Do When You Have Overwhelming Anxiety?

3 days back one of my old friends called me…

Asked to pay the amount… (He has given me small amount a few months back)

I explained to him the situation and when I will pay the amount…

He started heckling me with high pitch tone…

I kept quite listening to him… (Because I have taken a vow not to react to any person no matter the provocation)

He ridiculed me…

He undermined me…

He thwarted telling anything about my past…

Any way…

Call ended with peaceful tone finally…

At the time of receiving phone call I am working on my sales copy for my latest book…

After phone conversation ended I couldn’t focus on my work…

I could clearly see my heart is banging than normal pace…

As I couldn’t restore calm I want to listen to my heart…

This is the practice I always do whenever anxiety overtakes me…

I started to speak to my heart…

Why are you so disturbed?

Just because he lost his cool you need not ashamed of yourself…

You have given up the big job to live a clean and honest life…

You have given up the job to do big things in life…

You have given up the job to influence the people…

You have given up the job to empower the dalits…

All these are great things and you should be proud of yourself….

Being born in dalit caste, lived in dalit wadas, studied in telugu medium government schools… you have achieved a lot so far…

This is not a small thing…

What you are aiming for is very big…

You should love yourself…

And gradually my anxiety calm down and I reached to a very peaceful and calm state…

Then I resumed my work again…

While doing this mental exercise (you can call it meditation also) I have drawn the following graphic to keep myself energetic and keep going…Unmindful of the external situations…

Everytime I see this graphic my energy levels will grow…

Staying in high energy levels is paramount to keep the mission going…(perticlularly more so when you are on the verge of tremendous success)

In view of the above I thought it better to share the graphic to the world so that it may motivate the people who are overwhelmed with anxiety and striving do big things in life…

Here is the graphic…
