Ever considered how stress can be a good thing?
Rather than trying to avoid, run away from, moan, whine or get overwhelmed by stress why not consider another option?
Check this out:
“There are four types of stress, and only one leads to toughening. Excessive stress and insufficient stress actually decrease toughness, while maintenance stress freezes it at current levels... only adaptive stress toughens.
“We get tougher by progressively challenging ourselves beyond our normal limits.” (Loehr)
Next time you find yourself in a situation you perceive to be stressful…
Ask yourself …how can I use this challenge as an opportunity to actively grow beyond my ‘current limits’?
