Do you want to punch worry right in the face?  We want to help!  Worry is one of the top dream killers; it consumes your thinking, bogs down creativity, and can make you feel stuck.  In fact, 75 to 95% of all primary care visits are for stress, and millennials are getting hit greater than any other generation before.  Join Mitch Matthews as he gives you the strategies for overcoming your worry, so you can be free to create and live your greatest dreams!

“I was going from goal to goal, being worried throughout and missing the moments.” 

Mitch understands what it’s like to be constantly worried about something.  As a child, he would literally worry himself sick, at one point he even missed school for a full two weeks because of it.  But he has overcome that habit and studied the shiznit out of it, so now he can help you beat it too.  Listen to his inspiring (and terrifying) Granite Peak story to discover how he reached his epiphany.  Then learn about his program, 30 Days to Punch Worry in the Face (18:15), and how you can join.  This program includes the 3 Buckets (20:44), a type of filter that uses these three questions:

  • Can I control it?
  • Can I influence it?
  • Do I need to let it go?

Don’t let worry dropkick your creativity.  Don’t let it knock out your dreams.  Discover how you can punch worry right in the face so that it’s down for the count; then go out there and make your big ideas a reality!

    Awesome! Love that you put yourself out there letting us know how you worried. This couldn’t have come at a better time for me! I just turned 40 last October and decided to go back to college to get my Sign Language Interpreters Degree. Things were going well for the most part…then this semester messed up and I was unable to sign up for classes. Talk about worry!!!! Stress Overload!!! Even thinking of quiting and giving up!!! Glad I listened to this today, because now I can stop, look at things a little better, pull out the “three bucket”, reavaluate and hopeful take the next step! Thank you!

    Since I’ve found your podcast I swear I just can’t stop listening. Your content, approach, and just overall personality is exactly what I need in this season of my life. I myself struggled with worry. I worry about how people will accept my approach to things. Will they like my material? Will they understand it? Now I know that I am on the right path because I have found your site and it has truly helped me thus far. God bless you and all you do. Thank you for being you.

    Your podcast has come along at a perfect time for me. When I listen to your spoken words, I realize that I am not alone in all the negative self talk I barrage myself with. I just need to balance it out with some of your positive force. I want to thank you for getting to that spot where you are sharing your great positive force with people willing to seek it and listen to it. I am working along with you daily and am keeping you close in my journey to start up this business of mine. You are a good man Mitch Matthews!

    I first heard you on the Phoenix Summit, December last year. I have listened to your book Ignite. I have a BIG Dream. I started work on it Jan 1, 16. It’s hard. It’s wonderful. And the big scary monster of self-doubt is chasing me everyday. This podcast about worry has been useful on my journey as I continue to question myself, my idea, my finances (oh the list….). I am going to try very hard to use the buckets each time the thoughts of why or failure return. Last year was a year of acceptance, acceptance of others, past and self. This year… I am determined, I am determined to eventually go from survive to Thrive. Thank you for your words of encouragement and ideas so far.
    For others out there, Mitch is enthusiastic, honest, and realistic. He is also fun to listen to. Worry is such a waste of our precious time here. And, goodness, it gets in the way and pulls us down or out. The stories in this podcast illustrate this and offers a visual/tangible tool to use when this disease strikes (again). 🙂

    My favorite part about this podcast was in your story where you talked about (what you thought was fog). The way you described it and how I am interpreting it is that we can look at our circumstances in life that can potentially harm us with a different perspective. The fog/cloud could of caused you great harm, yet your vision of it was different so that you were able to see it as comforting. It limited your view to what would of scared you even more so (the VERY long drop to the ground). When we face challenges and obstacles I am thinking it is all on how we look at them. What power we give them.

    Thanks for what you do. .

    Hi Mitch,

    I am listening through all the stuff you guys are sending me and I am enjoying it. I really appreciate the amount of information you are making available for free – that’s great. I have to share that you made me laugh my heart out. Your story about your mountain top experience was very funny -I am sure it wasn’t at the time, and of course I laugh in relief that I haven’t experienced that as I would have probably been down that mountain ahead of everyone else. What I appreciated about that and your reference to the lady mentioning how much hair you have lost (previous podcast) and other things you have mentioned is that you are just so real. I appreciate that you are prepared to be as vulnerable and honest as you are. Real integrity. Great stuff !!
