Stress permeates all of our lives and has an affect on everything we do; from our daily jobs and personal relationships to our ability to concentrate.
A long time ago I came across a list of the Top 5 Most Stressful Life Events and committed them to memory. Here they are in no particular order:
- Job Change
- Personal Injury
Why am I writing about life events, being a marketing and idea guy?
Well, quite simply the more we can personally reduce or understand the stresses in our life, in theory, the better we can perform and enjoy life. More importantly, by understanding that anyone who we may be talking to, emailing, communicating or writing for may possibly be experiencing one of life’s most stressful events, it just might change how we approach people or communicate. I’m not saying we go around assuming that everyone we speak with just had a family member pass away, but odds are if you communicate with a large amount of people on a regular basis, then you will be touching a few stressed out folks that are currently going though one of life’s most stressful events.
I know awareness is sometimes not the only answer.
A few years back I went through a program from Tony Robbins & I think many of the TOOLS he teaches you might find very useful. No matter how tough the times are… I know most people can help themselves get though almost anything. You can find Tony’s Website here: http://www.tonyrobbins.com/
