As of today, the ability to manage stress is one of the most important qualities that a person has to possess in order to become successful. Why is it so? About 20 years ago the situation was completely different – people lad settled and deliberate lives, and were happy with that state. But what do we have now?
The world changed drastically within this period. There arose many opportunities, people understood that in order to reach their goals it was necessary to have fast reactions, clear plans and many other constituents. Of course, in this situation stress is inevitable. That is why psychologists invented various techniques of how to cope with stress and succeed out of its overcoming. As for me, I also have a recipe, which I successfully follow whenever there stressful situations occur.
To my mind, the main thing in stress management is the very perception of this state. If you consider it to be an obstacle in your life and you begin to panic whenever fast reactions are required from you, you will have many problems in this state. But if you perceive it as a catalyst of your reactions, will learn how to behave in calm and concentrated way in stressful situations, you are doomed to success and are sure to become a precious element of society and especially of your working environment. In this way, you will receive many additional opportunities instead of problems, which is great, isn’t it?
Of course, there are situations when you just can’t force yourself to action and are at a standstill. As for me, in such situations I try to relax for about 5 minutes, think about some pleasant things and return to my urgent assignment when the thoughts in my head become balanced and I am able to make reasonable decisions. In my case, the above mentioned methods work 100% and I really recommend trying them in your practice.
