Diamonds are rare stones made from tremendous amount of pressure. People might mistake pressure with stress. Pressure will make us grow. Stress can make us ill and damage our health massively.
Stress creates fear and hesitation, putting you in the cage of normality and toxic routines. Facing challenges helps you become more creative by looking into solutions and expanding your knowledge.
Be wise in dealing with pressure to stop it from turning into stress and making it overwhelming. How do you do that?
- Set yourself up for success daily. You control your mind and thoughts, not the other way around. Be observant of your recurring thoughts; if you find them negative and fearful, change them to be more positive and peaceful. If you found it really challenging, turn your worries to God, he has the ultimate power, seek his strength and protection over your mind and thoughts.
- Prioritize your missions and expect the unexpected. Plan ahead and be flexible when schedules change, as they will always do. Urgent things happen, delays happen and it is absolutely normal to keep changing your approach and optimizing your tools and systems. Decide your majors and focus on them, without neglecting the minor missions of course. Be happy and salute yourself when you achieve your goals by the end of the day.
- Reach out to family, friends and professionals for support. As you succeed and grow as a leader, you will need further and deeper connections and help from your closest circles. What you face as a professional key player is not ordinary and those around you must understand that. Having a personal coach for your business, public speaking skills or personal development is not a luxury; it is a NECESSITY.
Find what works best for you; no one knows you better than YOU. Use these strategies above and once they become second nature, they will become your successful subconscious habits. Aim to be excited and enjoy the process of creating your legacy as an influencer and achiever every day.
