Stress Is Holding On For Dear Life

Sometimes life’s stresses hit so hard it can blast you out of the water – but only if you let it. Usually we see that truth in others easier than we do in our own lives.

“He was afraid to move. I could not tell if he was still alive. He held on for dear life.”

Have you ever felt so overwhelmed that you were afraid to let go of whatever dream or fantasy you held close to your heart?

Were you ever too afraid to let go lest it slip away forever?

“The wind blew furiously, as it usually does when you live on a ridge. On the rail of my deck a squirrel lay motionless. I hoped I would not have to deal with yet another dead animal on my property, especially on my deck. And I knew there would be no clear answer until the wind stopped or at least died down – which did not happen that night.

Much to my relief the squirrel no longer perched on the deck rail the next morning. No bodies in the yard. Just the usual scamper of little squirrel feet over my roof.

He had something to hold on to. That something got him through the stormy weather – the high winds, the thunder and lightning. He knew not to move. Frankly I am certain he would have been blown clear off the deck had to tried to scamper off.

As it was, he lay there absolutely still, hunkered down to allow the storm to blow literally over him.”

Sometimes you give up on your dreams. When the going gets tough and obstacles present themselves most people turn away from their dreams. The suppress them so deeply – eventually they completely give up on ever even attempting to fulfill on what may have been a lifelong desire or unfathomable urge to live or do something important.

Stress takes it toll – but only when you allow it to take over your life.

No one can take away your dreams. No one can force you to struggle through each day or keep you awake at night worrying and anxious about…

About what?

What prevents you from falling asleep at night? What theme occupies most of your daytime and definitely bedtime thoughts?

Do you feel adrift at sea in desperate need of a lifesaver? Only there is no one to throw it to you. In fact, as far as you can tell, there are no life savers out there – at least not for you.

If you decided to you could tread water until you make it safely ashore. Heck, when you decide you can make it through the blocks and forge onward to your dreams then you will hold tight. You will grab on to the log floating by. You will float down stream easily in the direction of your dreams.

Your tenacious grasp, your never giving in or giving up allows you to weather the storm.

You know, even in the darkest storm, the sun shines. All you have to do is rise above the clouds to see it!

Stress Relief: #1 Stress Relief Tip

There is a single priority stress relief tip. Without this one, nothing else will work permanently or completely.

Stress relief is a do-it-yourself job. You can glean tips from other people but you alone carry through on what you know you can and will do.

The way to relieve stress is to love yourself first. It is not selfish. It is mandatory.

What do I mean by mandatory?

Can you ever give away something that you do not have yourself? Can you possibly horn and respect anyone you do not love?

Until you love, honor and respect yourself you will continue to please others. You will do everything in your power to make them happy. In fact you will neglect your own needs for rest and nourishment (physical, emotional and spiritual) to place the needs of others ahead of your own.

Each of those habits creates tremendous stress for you in all those three areas: physical, emotional and spiritual. So long as you take on being responsible for how others live their lives and whether or not they are happy you cannot possibly reduce your stress level, let alone eliminate it.

Realize that no matter how hard you work you cannot please others enough. Besides, that is their job not yours.

Your job is to please you. Theirs is to please themselves. If anyone tells you differently see their falsehood for the lie it is. When someone expects you to put their needs ahead of yours they are acting in a very selfish manner.

In the words of Oliver Wendell Holmes, “Selfishness is not doing what you want to do. Selfishness is expecting others to do what you want them to do.”

See the difference in how you taking care of your own needs (not telling others what to do for you) is no way, no how selfish?

Until you take care of your own needs and leave taking care of the needs of others to others you will not love yourself. Until you love yourself you will not live stress-free.

Unless you live stress-free you will never know happiness – let alone joy and wealth.

You need to live your life for you.

What do you love to do? You need to create psychic income not just money. You came here to fulfill on a purpose.

If you spend your life making others happy can you do what you feel driven to do? Can you do what you desire, more than anything, to accomplish?

Remember, this is your life. You can only live it when you eliminate the stress that holds you back.

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.
