“Anxiety is nothing but fear inspired by an imagined future collapse.  It is the failure of trust.”

~Thomas Moore


It is true that most of the anxiety we feel is caused by our own distrust in ourselves and/or in others.  Knowing this, how can you change your paradigm?  Begin by “acting as if” you do have trust in yourself and you believe in others and in a positive future outcome.  Yes, it is a bit of self-hypnosis but it has been proven over and over that those who not only convince themselves of positive outcomes, but also take actions to strengthen their skills and capabilities, significantly reduce their anxiety and build optimistic, positive outlooks.  With that attitude, and strong skills, you can do almost anything!
