“Stress isn’t something that happens to someone. It’s something someone feels about what’s happening. Your capacity to deal with any outer situation is based on your inner perspective. . . How we see ourselves determines everything.”
Bruce D. Schneider, Energy Leadership
Are you a victim of stress?
I used to believe stress was created by the situation I was in and that I was powerless to do anything but get through the stressful situation as best as I could.
Now I know that if I see myself as capable, confident, energetic, empowered, and engaged, I will not have the same stress reaction to a deadline, conflict, or anything else in my life that I would if I see myself as overworked, limited, tired, overwhelmed, unappreciated, and unworthy.
The only thing that is different is my perception of where I am in relationship to what is happening.
We are so much more powerful than most of us realize. And we are the creators of the limitations—and the success—that we experience. All it takes is a slight shift in how we see ourselves.
Now when I am feeling stressed, I recognize that I have limited self-thinking going on and can look for ways to shift that faulty belief.
Because I am capable, confident, energetic, empowered, and engaged. And so are you! You just have to find it inside of yourself, and believe it.
Together we can do it!
thank you! we all need these reminders now and again.
Actually you can look at life as a big challenge or game. The goal is to never feel stress no matter what happens. Many terrible things will happen, but it is your choice to be relaxed and at peace or to be bothered by it. I am not a prophet but it is a scientific fact that everyone that is born, will die. So the goal is not to live forever. It is to find the true self that always feels perfect peace and limitless happiness.
Thanks for the comments, Chuck.
