Overwhelming Stress: How Do I Start Having My Annual Physical If I Am Afraid Of Going To The Doctor?
Posted Jul 28 2010 6:33am
Many entrepreneurs and solopreneurs suffer from overwhelming stress because of our fear of going to the doctor. This concern can have deadly consequences if our organs malfunction long enough to create chronic symptoms.
The root of our problem can be found in the many myths that we have come to accept as reality. These myths when challenged that not only save you money but make your dream of health and happiness come true. And I am about to reveal the myth that is most relevant to our concern.
Here’s the myth: Stress causes you to avoid having your annual physical
Wayne: Is that not just a time issue?
Cecil: It’s not a time issue.
If you had a business, at the end of the year, you would take stock.
If you had a crop, at the end of the year, you would have a harvest.
If you have a car, there are certain times you have maintenance checks.
If you have a house, there is a mortgage and insurance.
Everything comes up for renewal at a particular time. We do these things on a regular basis.
What happens to the annual physical?
The annual physical is something that is taken for granted because it’s about us.
We don’t want to deal with ourselves.
In my 14 years of private practice, I have found that we put ourselves in the background.
We only pay attention when there are health issues or consequences for lack of looking after ourselves.
I asked an interesting question the other day. I asked someone, “Do you have a heart?” and they said, “Yes.” I asked, “Which side is it on?” and they had no clue!
That’s the problem. We take our bodies for granted.
We have issues with looking after the body and think it will always be the way it is.
It hurts my heart to see good intention entrepreneurs suffer from overwhelming stress rather than have an annual physical. So I hope you will take the priceless information you discovered in the last few minutes to avoid this trap. And to realize the health and happiness is very important to our well being. It is possible and only a few short steps away.
