Stress can be bad for us if it’s to much stress, no doubt. The fight or flight response is good when we are running from a grizzly bear….. obviously right? However, I’m talking about the modern day “stress” that is different from the fight or flight response. When you feel perhaps challenged, and you feel you have what it takes to meet the challenge….. go for it, you then will remove fear and have focus. This is not easy for people who deal with constant fear and anxiety. What is the only reason people have stress? Usually because they care about that particular something that has meaning in there life. This stirs up stress. What truly matters and holds value to you can cause stress, but it doesn’t have to! Commit to something bigger than you and use that value and meaning and turn that stress into something positive. Instead of finding excuses to why your “stressed” get excited about the challenge. Translate the stressful things you are experiencing and use it for you not against you.
“The deepest fear we have, ‘the fear beneath all fears,’ is the fear of not measuring up, the fear of judgment. It’s this fear that creates stress and depression of everyday life” Tullian Tchividjian.
“Adopting the right attitude can convert a negative stress into a positive one.” Hans Seyle
