Stress is a part of life. While you can’t prevent the stress, you can control the way that you manage it.
If you’ve been a part of any of my coaching sessions before, I know I’ve talked about the importance of making lists to manage your priorities and keep you focused throughout the day. Writing down the tasks I have to complete, both personal and professional, helps me to stop thinking about every second so that I can focus on one task at a time and handle them on my terms instead of feeling controlled by the tasks I have left to complete.
I use this same methodology for the things that are stressing me out. I write them all down so that I can get them out of my head and stop focusing on the negativity. And then I rip them up.
This might seem a bit cheesy, but you will be amazed at how much lighter you will feel. The thing is, most of the things that are stressing us out only exist in our minds. Our stressors stem from our own insecurities, and we are much more capable than we give ourselves credit for.
It is also important to remind yourself about what makes you feel happy and successful. We are harder on ourselves than others and negative self-talk only perpetuates the problem. We have to change the way that we speak to ourselves so that we can be our most confident, courageous, and productive selves.
My style of coaching, High Performance Coaching, is an influence process that leads to discovery, decisions making, performance improvement, and better living so we can life a Limitless Life. This is not possible if your stressors are controlling you and the way that you show up in your daily life.
