Stress Is Everywhere
Stress abounds in the modern time-poor drama-filled world. Those that aren’t feeling stressed are either lying to themselves or have managed to find a happy workstudylife balance that few people have the ability to create for themselves if they want to get good grades or pay their bills on time. So if you are feeling stressed – I say join the club!
However, the way in which each individual reacts to the stress they feel can be very different. Let’s face it, we can all be impatient, get frustrated or cause needless conflict with others based purely on how stressed we are feeling.
When in a state of “stress” our judgement and temperament is often impaired which leads to a negatively skewed opinion of the activities and world around us and typically the mistreatment of those around us – predominately the ones closest to us such as friends and family but also strangers in many circumstances.
The major challenge with stress is preventing the behaviors it creates from becoming habits. Habits occur when we consistently engage in certain actions or behaviors over a certain amount of time. Therefore, if the feeling of “being stressed” becomes a regular feeling it may actually become the norm feeling. When that happens the individual spends their entire life feeling miserable but they aren’t even aware it’s because they have formed a detrimental habit.
Therefore, this is a habit that needs to be reversed. Why? Well those with high stress levels creating high amounts of conflict in their life will find it very difficult to reach high achievement levels at either school or in life.
The Problem: Mini-Me Is Saying Negative Things Again!
Negative self-dialogue is a consistent reaction to stressful situations. Responses such as “I can’t do this” Keith Yandle Authentic Jersey
, “I am going to fail”, or “I don’t know what I’m doing” only add further stress to the stress that is being experienced! It is a downward spiral. Unfortunately, this type of dialogue is also our most powerful dialogue and controls our responses to stressful situations.
Negative self-dialogue creates a negative self-fulfilling prophecy. What this means is that the negative self-dialogue creates an outlook that “everything is negative” and “everything that happens is negative” thereby resulting in a completely miserable life experience. However, this is just a result of a negative perception – it’s not “the truth”. In other words, if someone believes their life is stressful, then it’s stressful! If they don’t believe it’s stressful then it’s not stressful! See how perception creates reality?
This can be potentially very serious – it may also lead to being quite lonely (or grouped with other negative self-talkers – yikes there’s a bunch of them – run!) The negativity tends to hang over this person like a dark cloud. However Mats Zuccarello Authentic Jersey
, the good news is that it can be overcome by making positive self-talk a habit.
The Solution: Be A Positive Pete
When controlled and executed properly, positive self-dialogue can truly change your life. A constant state of positivism breeds positive experiences and connections with other positive people. The other major benefit of positive self-dialogue is that your outlook on your life will improve even if nothing about your life is actually different. However, the fact you feel better about yourself and your life means that you are far more open to the actions that are required to get you the results you want.
Keep in mind that a negative attitude breeds more negativity. So the opposite is also true. Improved relationships, improved health and improved grades are all results of simply changing your self-dialogue. Don’t believe me? Try it! Use words such as “I can do this”, “I will do this”, “I can do anything I put my mind too” Henrik Lundqvist Authentic Jersey
, “Life has a way of working out for me”, “Things always happen for a reason”, “I am not discouraged”. This requires no effort other than constantly being positive about yourself, your situation and everyone around you. Do this for at least one week and your outlook will have changed dramatically. Not only that, but those around you will appear to change as well. Why? Well you be treating them differently which will cause more of the same.
