Email: Under too much pressure, fear due to a new job. Why? (Malaysia)
Congratulations. Surprisingly, there’s very little physiological difference between fear, anticipation, nervousness & excitement. Sometimes, strikingly, things that excite us also cause fear. Stir up the same emotional, psychological responses in our body (increase in heart-rate, shortness of breath, adrenaline rush). Involves the same chemical process in our brains. Hence, mental interpretation, balance is key.
Essentially, mindset is everything. A positive mind, optimistic belief helps embrace big moments with anticipation, excitement, joy. All the best.
