Can anxiety hurt your success and happiness?

Anxiety disorders are some of the most common mental illness affecting millions of people yet many people don’t realise they have it. People also tend to think that if they ignore it long enough, it will go away.

Anxiety is not a benign condition. It can trigger a number of broad symptoms:

  • nausea
  • chronic illness
  • insomnia
  • undetermined physical pain
  • chronic pain
  • hyperventilation
  • panic attacks
  • obsessive thoughts and behaviours

If you are suffering from any one of the five major anxiety disorders, it could very well negatively affected your prospects, and can make every day life a difficult task to deal with.

For example, if you are suffering from social anxiety disorder, you could be overwhelmed by anxiety and excessive self-consciousness in front of other people. This can cause a barrier to being able to bond and connect with other people. As much of success is about relationship building and expanding your social networks, this can be absolutely detrimental to your success.
