Reduce Stress By Working in Your Area of Expertise

When you work in alignment with your talents and skills, doing something you love and truly value, then and only then will you eliminate stress and find the success you desire. And that success will  improve your life as well as benefit all people and the planet itself.

Everybody is an expert at something. When you stop to really look you will discover there is something that you do better than most people.

It may be something very simple like smiling just the right way to bring a smile to the face of someone too shy to look others in the eye. Or maybe you prepare the most amazing cranberry buckwheat bread on the planet.

Whether you are a business mogul or a stay-at-home parent you are an expert in some aspect. That is fact. Every person has a gift they came here to share.

Okay. The thing is no one is an instant expert at everything.

I have a tad of difficulty writing that sentence. While I am not the best at everything I am really good at very many things and an expert in many fields.

People born with multiple gifts, like Leonardo Davinci, were not limited to the Renaissance, you know. Many exist today. You likely know at least one person to whom you go for advice on very many different topics, right?

Fine. Some people have many areas of expertise.

However, I want to through a caution your way… many people pretend to be gurus because they see a new business opportunity. So they jump on the bandwagon. They really have no expertise but they say they do!

So how do you know who to follow?

You certainly cannot choose a guru by the letters after their names. The most gifted healers I know are not the ones with college degrees and fancy letters (no one can decipher) awarded by smart business people who decided to open a school and accredit people with letters after their name because they paid the smart person money to do so! (Lots of that going on these days!)

You decide on whose advice to take by following their specific advice in one incident and noting the results. If you got your desired results then the teacher knows what they are doing. If you failed to reach your desired and intended goal, and you did what the so-called guru said, they are not the right person – at least not for you.

Remember the college professor teaching business out of books in a classroom with no business experience will not make you a successful person out in the real business world.

In the world of entrepreneurs there is a standing joke that you just gotta forgive the poor guy (literally after paying for the degree in time and money) with the MBA.

When you choose your area of expertise really do what you know and not what you think will make you money. Doing work you love will reduce your stress. In fact, you will not work at all. When you love what you do you do not have a vocation but rather an avocation.

Stress Comes in Some Formidable Forms

Sometimes stress appears seemingly out of the blue in forms so violent you are taken aback and temporarily at a loss as to how to respond. Well, hopefully you are looking for the response and did not simply react and feed a fire possibly blowing it up into an uncontainable wildfire.

You see that kind of thing in politics and business, usually perpetrated by someone in a feeble attempt to eliminate tough competition.

The world of competition will always produce stress without benefiting anyone – not in the big picture. Greedy people eventually get back the poison they put out. Fact: you get what you give in this energy Universe where we are all connected as One.

Well, if someone attacks you platitudes will not resolve the issue. SO what will?

If someone says something in a public forum, unfortunately, the attacked person it put in place of defending and proving themselves innocent. Makes no sense, does it? Somehow most people believe what they see in the media.

Most people fail to stop and think about the fact that the media only sells bad news. When did you last buy a paper or tune into a radio or television station to listen to the happy news?

So how can you turn a stressful, probably untruthful attack, around and go on with your life?

Maybe you do not need to turn it around. May be the act of acknowledging the untruth feeds it energy to help it stay in the forefront of the public eye.

What you do not feed withers away and dies.

What if you send love to whoever started the rumor? What if you sent love to that person every time you think of it all day long?

Could a person who loves, honors and respects himself deliberately lash out with the sole intention of hurting another person?

People who hurt others and judge others lack love. They lack good feelings about themselves. They tend to have poor self images (even if they seem to be successful) they can have pitifully poor self images and extremely low self esteem and self confidence.

People who know how great they are never need to tell others that fact. They go about their lives without any need to pit down another person or brag about their own accomplishments.

People always turn up in your world as you expect to see them and also in the form, presenting the behaviors you accept as being their way. When you take them out of the box into which you placed them they will become the person who behaves the way you wish them to be.

Do you really want to get back at someone who hurt you or would rather turn them into an ally?

Stress: 5 Biggest Reasons People Experience Stress

Nobody wants to live under stressful conditions. Then why don’t people take the actions they know to take to eliminate the stress in their lives?

These five biggest reasons people stay stuck in stress.

1.  People become addicted to their emotions. In fact they identify with their stress-filled lives. Often they wear that overwhelm like a badge on their sleeve!

For those people feeling like a hero becomes a powerful motivating factor in continuing to keep high pressure circumstances in their world. Their family and friends tend to feed their illusion (or maybe it is more properly a delusion) of being such a great person, a true martyr sacrificing their possibly comfortable life to provide more for their family.

2. They see the stress looming as an unconquerable giant before their eyes. By focusing on their problems they make them so big that they no longer see anything in their world beyond that painful circumstance.

You cannot focus on both something good and something bad at the same time. Most people grab hold of the bad view that fits into their comfort zone.

Of course everything is just an interpretation of a meaningless event so nothing is inherently good or bad.
.
3. Most people buy into the huge energy thought form that states stress is not only an inevitable part of life but also a necessary part. Those people explain that good stress (as they call it) acts as a great motivator to get things done in life.

There is no such thing as good stress. All stress damages your physical, mental and spiritual health and well being.

4. People fear the unknown. Living with stress may feel awful. However, it is a way of life they find familiar. Taking a new action, stepping outside the box they call home, appears terribly scary for them.

For most people stretching their comfort zone by taking on new behaviors and beliefs threatens them to their core. Staying in their current life seems reasonable and safe.

5. The brain and mind serve to discourage people from taking new actions. The job of the mind and brain is to keep people safe. How do they accomplish that end? They send messages that tell you not to take risks. In fact, you hear those messages pretty much all the time in the persona of a Little Voice that lives in your head.

Right now that Little Voice is telling you to stop reading because I must be nuts if I have a Little Voice that talks to me.

Hear it?

Those messages applied, perhaps, when you were a child or in some truly dangerous situation. However, they no longer serve you – except to keep you inside your limiting box that defines your life by holding stress over you as a threat that must surely come with a life style change.

So what are you going to eliminate stress from your world? Are you willing to step out of your comfort zone right now before you change your mind?

How to Stop Junk E-Mail and Other Annoyances

The man that sent this information is a computer tech. He spends a lot of
time clearing the junk off computers for people and listens to complaints about speed. All forwards are not bad, just some. Be sure you read the
very last paragraph.
He wrote:

By now, I suspect everyone is familiar with snopes.com and/or truthorfiction.com for determining whether
information received via email is just that: true/false or
fact/fiction. Both are excellent sites.

Advice
from snopes.com VERY
IMPORTANT!!

1) Any time
you see an email that says “forward this on to ’10’ (or however many) of
your friends”, “sign this petition”, or “you’ll get bad
luck” or “you’ll get good luck” or “you’ll see something
funny on your screen after you send it” or whatever — it almost always
has an email tracker program attached that tracks the cookies and emails of
those folks you forward to. The host sender is getting a copy each time
it gets forwarded and then is able to get lists of ‘active’ email addresses to
use in SPAM emails or sell to other spammers. Even when you get emails
that demand you send the email on if you’re not ashamed of God/Jesus
— that is email tracking, and they are playing on our conscience. These people
don’t care how they get your email addresses – just as long as they get them.
Also, emails that talk about a missing child or a child with an incurable
disease “how would you feel if that was your child” — email
tracking. Ignore them and don’t participate!

2) Almost all emails that ask you to add your name and forward on to others are similar to
that mass letter years ago that asked people to send business cards to the
little kid in Florida who wanted to break the Guinness Book of Records for the
most cards. All it was, and all any of this type of email is, is a way to
get names and ‘cookie’ tracking information for telemarketers and spammers —
to validate active email accounts for their own profitable purposes.

You can do your Friends and Family members a GREAT favor by sending this information to
them. You will be providing a service to your friends. And you will
be rewarded by not getting thousands of spam emails in the future!

Do yourself a favor and STOP adding your name(s) to those types of listing regardless how inviting they might
sound! Or make you feel guilty if you don’t! It’s all about getting email
addresses and nothing more.

You may think you are supporting a GREAT cause, but you are NOT!

Instead, you will be getting tons of junk mail later and very possibly a virus
attached! Plus, we are helping the spammers get rich! Let’s not
make it easy for them!

ALSO: Email petitions are NOT acceptable to Congress or any
other organization – i.e. social security, etc. To be acceptable,
petitions must have a “signed signature” and full address of
the person signing the petition, so this is a waste of time and you are just
helping the email trackers.

Tips for Handling Telemarketers

Three Little Words That Work!!

(1)The three little words are: ‘Hold On, Please…’

Saying this, while putting down your phone and walking off (instead of hanging-up immediately) would make each telemarketing call so much more time-consuming that boiler room sales would grind to a halt.

Then when you eventually hear the phone company’s ‘beep-beep-beep’ tone, you know it’s time to go back and hang up your handset, which has efficiently completed its task.

These three little words will help eliminate telephone soliciting..

(2) Do you ever get those annoying phone calls with no one on the other end?

This is a telemarketing technique where a machine makes phone calls and records the time of day when a person answers the phone.

This technique is used to determine the best time of day for a ‘real’ sales person to call back and get someone at home.

What you can do after answering, if you notice there is no one there, is to immediately start hitting your # button on the phone, 6 or 7 times as quickly as possible. This confuses the machine that dialed the call, and it kicks your number out of their system. Gosh, what a shame not to have your name in their
system any longer!!!

(3) Junk Mail Help:

When you get ‘ads’ enclosed with your phone or utility bill, return these ‘ads’ with your payment. Let the sending companies throw their own junk mail away.

When you get those ‘pre-approved’ letters in the mail for everything from credit cards to 2nd mortgages and similar type junk, do not throw away the return envelope.

Most of these come with postage-paid return envelopes, right? It costs them more than the regular 44 cents postage, ‘IF’ and when they receive them back.

It costs them nothing if you throw them away! The postage was around 50 cents before the last increase and it is according to the weight. In that case, why not get rid of some of your other junk mail and put it in these cool little, postage-paid
return envelopes.

One of Andy Rooney ‘s (60 minutes) ideas.

Send an ad for your local chimney cleaner to American Express. Send a pizza
coupon to Citibank.
If you didn’t get anything else that day, then just send them their
blank application back!

If you want to remain anonymous, just make sure your name isn’t on anything you send them.

You can even send the envelope back empty if you want to just to keep them
guessing! It still costs them 44 cents.

The banks and credit card companies are currently getting a lot of their own junk back in the mail, but folks, we need to OVERWHELM them. Let’s let them know what it’s like to get lots of junk mail, and best of all they’re paying for it…Twice!

Let’s help keep our postal service busy since they are saying that e-mail is cutting into their business profits, and that’s why they need to increase postage costs again. You get the idea!

If enough people follow these tips, it will work —- I have been doing this for years, and I get very little junk mail anymore.
