Stress can be seen as either a continual erosion of our personal power – an increased inability to adjust and cope with our constantly changing enviroment.
Or it can be the stimulating growth we go through as we move from one level of self mastery to the next.
Which one is it predominantly for you?
Stress has a mental, emotional and physical effect on us and will result in one of the two above outcomes depending on our coping mechanisms and our attitude. In short it is a measure of our Mental Toughness.
From a constructive point of view, stress should raise our level of awareness and compel us into productive action.
Most often times it inhibits us, by clouding our thinking, emotionally numbing and disabling us from fully engaging in life.
This in turn may lead to many emotional, mental and physical difficulties.
We do have control over stress aiding or hindering us, by raising our ability to manage our REACTIONS.
It is therefore critically important to know what our own balanced optimal levels are, resulting in motivating rather than overwhelming us.
Self Mastery and Stress
