It's All a State of Mind: An Anxiety Parable

If you think you are beaten........YOU ARE!

If you think you can’t do something, YOU CAN’T!

If you want to win, but think you can’t, then you WON’T!

It’s all a state of mind. What are you going to believe?

If you think you’ll lose......YOU’RE LOST!

Success begins with a person’s will.

It’s all a state of mind. What are you going to believe?

And, who are you going to believe?

Those OLD beliefs and thoughts that are easy to find?

Or can you decide to be more rational and realistic?

It’s all a state of mind. What are you going to believe?

If you think you’re outclassed...YOU ARE!

You’ve got to think clear to rise,

you’ve got to be sure of yourself,

before you can win the prize. What are you going to believe?

Life’s battles don’t always go

to the stronger woman or man,

but sooner or later the one who wins –

is the person who THINKS they can. What are you going to believe?

If you think you can make it......YOU WILL!

If you think you can do it......YOU CAN!

If you think more rationally and turn your thoughts around,

There is nobody, anywhere, that can ever pull you down.

It makes a BIG difference what you choose to believe!

Our History and Our Mission

The Anxiety Network began in 1995 due to growing demand from people around the world wanting help in understanding and overcoming their anxiety disorder.  The Anxiety Clinic of Arizona and its website, The Anxiety Network, received so much traffic and requests for help that we found ourselves spending much of our time in international communication and outreach.  Our in-person anxiety clinic has grown tremendously, and our principal internet tool, The Anxiety Network, has been re-written and re-designed with focus on the three major anxiety disorders: panic, social anxiety, and generalized anxiety disorder.  

The Anxiety Network  focuses on three of the major anxiety disorders:  panic disorder, generalized anxiety disorder, and social anxiety disorder.

In 1997, The Social Anxiety Association, a non-profit organization, was formed and now has its own website.

The Social Anxiety Institute, the largest site on the internet for information and treatment of social anxiety, has maintained an active website since 1998.  Continuous, ongoing therapy groups have helped hundreds of people overcome social anxiety since 1994.
