Personal Growth Weekly #21

Hey, it’s Michael from michaelrauscher.com,

I hope you’re doing great! Let me add some value to your life this week:

  1. Life can be overwhelming. It can be frigging hard. My latest blogpost How to Overcome Feeling Down and Powerless All the Time is all about three steps into a life with less worrying and more happiness. Hope you’ll give it a read!

    Remember: Whatever impediments you’re currently fighting with, you must remind yourself of one thing: Nothing is more important than to be able to enjoy where you are, right now, right here. You’re the only one who can allow yourself to return to your most natural self.

  2. Let’s chop it down: Our brains have a built-in defense mechanism: By imagining our worst fears, we think we could prepare for them. By always keeping the thing we fear on our radar and in front of us, we falsely assume that it couldn’t hurt or surprise us suddenly. Worrying is a primal emotion. It pushes us into seeking safety and comfort. Here the opposite of the typical advice counts: Instead of leaving your comfort zone, build a comfort zone to find a way to feel safe again.

  3. Sometimes we’re so busy worrying that we forget to dig for the root cause and address the actual things that trouble us and make us vulnerable. What helps is understanding and action. What you need is to state precisely what is wrong with your life (understanding) so you can work to make it right (action).

    Be brutally honest with yourself. If not now, when?

  4. It is your birthright to feel whole, stable, healthy, vital, and at peace. Guide yourself to find peace and comfort and create a safe haven.

  5. You probably know that I’m writing on Medium.com every week. It would mean the world to me if you hit follow to snatch my weekly reads on mindful personal growth and reach out to me through any social media channel or by mail!


PS: I love to read, listen, watch content, and write about personal development and self-improvement daily. But I’m pretty sure your schedule is almost full already. Let me do the weekly personal growth research for you to save your time and add value to your life. I’ll give you only the essentials, promise!


Thank you for reading. Looking forward to seeing you next week!

Have a great smashing week ahead!
