How to Overcome Anxiety & Be Irresistible: Glimpse TV with Josh Pais

Screen Shot 2015-02-03 at 11.15.16 AMIt was a week after meeting Josh Pais that I heard his voice for the first time. We met at yoga, but he had laryngitis. (Luckily his fiancée Marie Forleo was there and able to speak, otherwise we probably wouldn’t have met.)

I have never had anyone make me laugh so hard who wasn’t able to talk. Josh has an unbelievable way of being captivating (and often incredibly humorous) without making a sound.

He’s an actor (you may have seen him in the Showtime series “Ray Donovan” with Liev Shreiber or in the movie Touchy Feely with Ellen Page), director, teacher, thought leader, and creator of Committed Impulse. This class is a “secret weapon” for high performing actors, entrepreneurs, speakers, and other creative professionals. (I took it, and I can attest to its effectiveness, particularly in how it helped me overcome my fear of telling the truth.)

I interviewed Josh a while back about overcoming fear and anxiety, being creatively invincible, and more.

Watch this episode of Glimpse TV to learn:

  • How to be irresistible
  • How to do your best work no matter what
  • 4 inroads to telling the truth about whatever is really going on in the moment
  • What happens when you listen to 98% of your thoughts
  • Specific ways to stay present and stop believing that you suck
  • Why changing your thoughts doesn’t work for a lot of people
  • How to make sure you always say the right thing

Plus, there’s a special guest appearance that you won’t want to miss towards the end.

This thing we’re trying to get rid of in terms of sensation is actually our greatest asset. ~@joshpais (Click to Tweet!)

Over to you:

What do you do when you feel sensations in your body that you’ve deemed “bad”? What might happen if you didn’t judge them but instead simply felt them without dramatization? I’d love to hear your thoughts on that or anything else you learned from Josh during this episode. Please leave a comment below!

Stop trying to be confident and do this instead: Glimpse TV with Tara Mohr

About a month before our wedding I got a book in the mail with a beautiful brunette on the cover. I get a steady stream of books to review, and sometimes I do so in a timely manner. And other times not so much. Technically, I didn’t have “time”to be diving into a new book….

Why I’m no longer panicking about fitting into my wedding dress

I’ll admit, I was skeptical. When I first heard about tapping, or the Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), I thought it was really weird. Seriously, could tapping my hand on points on my body really be an effective strategy for overcoming pain, anxiety, or any of the other things it claimed to help? As it turns…

Fear of public speaking, self-trust, and coming home: Glimpse TV with Gail Larsen

I used to be terrified of public speaking. I barely slept because I was so anxious the summer I first started doing live USANA presentations. One time in high school I woke up unable to walk the day I had a presentation. Coincidence? I think not. While I was on The Freedom Tour Danielle LaPorte…
