dealing with anxiety in high performance people

Anxiety in High Performance, High Functioning People

In Podcast by Debra Fileta

If you’ve been following along, you’ve heard us have some open and honest conversations about anxiety.

But today is a little bit different. Today I’m talking to John Delony from Ramsey Solutions. Dr. Delony is a high-performance, high-achieving man – who found himself in a pit of anxiety that he didn’t see coming.

Sometimes, people don’t recognize anxiety because on the outside they are successful and seem like they have it all together. But underneath the high performance, high functioning life — is a layer of pressure just waiting to come up to the surface. In Are You Really OK? I talk about the emotional pressure like a volcano, and how it’s important to get to the pressure before it gets to you.

If you’re the type of person who is always on the go, trying to achieve, maximize your time, and has a hard time saying no to all the opportunities to get ahead — then this episode is for you. The truth is, even high-performance, high-functioning humans can only handle a certain amount on their plate before it’s too much. You have to learn when to recognize you’re nearing empty — and do what you can to refuel and recharge as a regular part of your lifestyle.

Listen to this conversation with Dr. Delony, today on the podcast!

It’s time for YOU to get real about how you’re doing emotionally, spiritually, mentally and physically. Are You Really OK? is available NOW!! It’s time to ask yourself the hard questions and get real about how you’re really doing.
