Charlamagne Tha God on Success, Anxiety, and Mental Health
TAKING CARE OF MENTAL HEALTH IS POWERFUL, NOT WEAK.
It’s time to open up.
No matter what you’re dealing with, you’re not alone.
There is nothing shameful about having anxiety.
Think about this acronym for FEAR- you either Fear Everything And Run or Face Everything And Rise.
The more you confront the things in your past you don’t want to do with, the more you’ll be able to move forward.
So, are you going to run from your fear, or face it?
On today’s episode of The School of Greatness, I talk about anxiety and PTSD with a man who has become an unofficial mental health advocate: Charlamagne the God.
New York Times Best-Selling Author Charlamagne Tha God is best known for being co-host of the nationally syndicated hip-hop iHeartRadio program The Breakfast Club. He is also a social media influencer; an executive producer with his own production company, CThaGod World; and co-host of the popular podcast Brilliant Idiots.
Charlamagne says that refining his life’s mission and examining his past helped him take control of his anxiety.
