Stressful situations are common

They are most often triggered by threat situations.

If you perceive no threats to your continued prosperity and health: you feel no stress.
If you perceive there are threats to your continued prosperity and health, then you DO feel stress.

You cannot wish the threat away, so instead you should:

  1. Deal with your emotional reaction: the internal situation.
  2. Deal with the facts of the case: the external situation.

How should you deal with the feeling of being stressed?

Follow these steps

Guard your thinking

Keep your imagination under control and stop it from dreaming up multiple scary scenarios that have not yet happened (and probably never will) but have the capacity to smash your confidence and keep you awake at night.

Guard your language

Don't talk yourself out of all your confidence
Don't say things destructive to your confidence.

Instead, Say things that imply you are on the verge of a breakthrough.
Find reasons to be optimistic and talk about those to everyone you can find.

This will tend to take the mental pressure off a little. (Though it is not enough, in itself, to cure the situation).

Guard your habits

Don't let the stress situation be the trigger for destructive habits such as:

  • Excessive alcohol
  • Bad temper tantrums
  • Poor diet
  • Arguments with important people in your life.

Reverse this list and instead

  • Drink plenty of water
  • Stop complaining
  • Eat well
  • Be kind to your family.

How should you deal with the situation

Follow these steps:

  1. Sit down with a note book and pencils and a few well chosen, positive and well motivated
  2. people
  3. List all the facts of the stress situation.
  4. List all the things you can do about it.
  5. Strike out all the things you could do, but are not really a very good idea.
  6. You are left then with a shorter list of all the things you could do and are good ideas.
  7. Put this list into order and call that your "plan of action".
  8. Start immediately to implement your "plan of action"
  9. Repeat the above steps every day until you either:
  10. WIN
  11. or Die trying

Memorise these words of Winston Churchill

"This is the lesson:

Never give in. Never give in. Never, never, never, never--in nothing, great or small, large or petty--never give in, except to convictions of honour and good sense. Never yield to force. Never yield to the apparently overwhelming might of the enemy."
