Stress and Scares

ImageA friend just called me the eye of the hurricane. He meant that despite the chaos all around I am usually calm and cheerful. Of course this is most of the time. 

I make an effort to redirect my negative thoughts. I tell my clients one trick is to mentally say STOP. Check yourself. Don’t allow the negative stream to continue. 

On occasion there are a lot of stops. I am sure my mind would look like a lurching car. Stop -Go-Stop-Go…and so on.  But in the end using this technique and others – I am able to maintain an aura of calm and patience.  I breathe, smile and move forward in a way that others remark on. 

The thing is this isn’t a feat unique to me. It is something that you can do to! Many of my clients ask for tools that fit their individual lives. I find that once they begin to practice these – they work! 

It is when the stress and scary thoughts are laid to rest that you find the ability to grow, to enjoy and to allow joy in.  It is amazing how the empty cracks are filled with happiness and self esteem. It is what I love about coaching! Watching this shift.

  1. I love the visual. And it is so true: you do stay very calm in the midst of chaos. I also love the idea of watching empty cracks filling with happiness and self esteem.
