It’s not the Stress that’s hurting you, that’s just the symptom

It’s not the Stress that’s hurting you, that’s just the symptom

Whether it’s the get-it-over-elections, the stock market, rising prices, job worries, or a host of other reasons, more people than ever need assistance managing their stress levels.

The challenge comes in when you want to change the stress that’s hurting you without changing the cause

What happens when you become stressed, how do you manage its symptoms? Do you take a pill, zone out in front of the TV, stuff it away with your favorite snack? When the pill wears off, the TV is finally turned off and the snack bag is empty, you are still going to be faced with the cause.

What to do next…

It has been found that it is not the amount of stress that we are under than leads to long-term detrimental health conditions

Instead it is how we perceive the stress and just as important, feeling as if we have any control over it.

Look at the 4 steps below and see which one you can work with right now to start dealing with the source of your stress instead of just treating the symptoms

1. Accept what is. Yes, you are stressed right now.

Quit denying it, stop trying to cover it up or rationalize it by saying, “but others have it worse that me.” Just admit that things are really as bad as they are. No amount of positive thinking, right actions, affirmations or the like is going to change the fact that you are human and sometimes things are going to be great and others times it will be absolutely awful. Admit you are human so you can move on.

2. Do you set yourself up to fail?

There was a gentleman who needed medical care immediately. He set himself up for failure though, by insisting that he could only seek this care if there was no copay involved, nothing was to be spent out of his pocket (this was not how his insurance was set up). For a few dollars, he would have received the care he needed without having to wait. Instead he chose self sabotage by make impossible demands that could not be met. What impossible demands are you making that keep you in a state of stress?

3. Is there a lesson to be learned that you are refusing to accept?

Maybe you need to; find a different job, take on an additional job for needed income, leave that toxic relationship, start exercising… Begin to see the world for the way it really is instead of the way you would wish it to be.

4. What needs are you ignoring?

We all have needs that, for whatever reason, we have pushed aside. Yet we will subconsciously draw in people, places and situations that point to this unmet need time and time again. Nothing will fill this void for you, not your significant other, your job, your bank account balance…nothing but you. What need is calling out for your attention?

Your mind has been programmed to stop when you try to take care of yourself!

You’ve been conditioned to take care of others; at the expense of yourself. It’s not doing Success when it’s easy; it’s continuing to implement when it’s hard. And that’s the challenge, Success was there but you stopped. Fear will shut you down.

Once your subconscious mind learns how to stop you

Once your subconscious mind learns how to stop you, it will repeat that habit and pattern, stopping you faster each time you go for yor goals. And now you have 2 problems; you’ve been programmed to take care of others and you have the habit of hurting yourself when seeking your own Success!

80% of who you are as an adult was programmed into your mind by age 8

Take a moment and think of this; 80% of who you are as an adult was programmed into your mind by age 8. This conditioning was not based on your brilliance, but instead it was the what and who others needed you to be for their lives to be OK.

It’s Not Too Late for the New Year’s Goals

Well, it’s September.  How are you doing on those New Year’s goals?

How many have you met?  How many have you set?  Have you set any?  I know it seems like every year we start out with the greatest intentions, but somehow something (read “everything”) comes up and we just don’t get there do we?

It is NOT too late.  It’s only September, we have 3 whole months yet.  So what realistic goals can we set and meet before we have to think about next year’s goals.  I know that right about now some of you are wandering over to the couch now thinking that this year’s goals will work very well as next year’s goals.  Procrastinators!  “Procrastination today insures a busier tomorrow”.  Just think, though, four whole months remain in this year.  What could I achieve, in my relationships, in my career, in my self-care, how about my finances?  These four areas can be improved with a little effort.  You could do one a month, hmmmmm.

Be realistic!  You may even start out with a small, easy to make goal in each area.  Then as the achievement becomes a repeatable pattern it will become easier to “raise the bar” for greater results.  We call it the Pyramid Method.  The first level is the largest, it has the biggest footprint.  The next level is slightly smaller so it takes less effort to build, and the next is even smaller.  Get the picture?  You reach greater heights with less effort until it seems effortless to you.  This is a pattern of behavior that can, and will, work for you.

Be specific!  Assign a specific time and date to your goal.  Spell it out so that someone could call you on that date and time to check on how you did.

Pick an accountability partner to help hold you to your goal.  Choose someone who you trust to act in your best interests.  One who will encourage you, but not enable you.

Remember to reward yourself along the way.  The new wardrobe should not be the only reward for the weight reduction goal you set.  Our mind needs encouragement and rewards along the way, so look to do something nice for you every two to three weeks.  A facial, new nails, that new tool you have been looking at, anything that would make you feel good about your progress along the way will help keep you on target to the goal.  Remember, it is a reward, so make it something outside the normal things you do, or buy anyway.

Write your goals down.  A twenty year study of Ivy League College graduates showed that those who wrote out their goals, only 3%, had achieved not only their goals, but as much as the 97% who did not write out their goals, combined.  What about the 97% of graduates who did not write out their goals?  They achieved only as much as the average business person.

So, what would happen to your life if, POOF, a miracle happened and all your goals were met?  All of a sudden you have that “love of your life” in your life.  You are working in your dream job.  Your hobbies are satisfying.  Money is no longer a concern; you have all that you need.  Think about it; are any of these goals your goals?  Are all of these goals your goals?  Would you like them to be?  Start small and build a Pyramid, and look, just around the corner, a whole new set of goals to grow to.

You’re Halfway Through the Year (and your goals?)

Your halfway through the year. Are you halfway through your goals?

Have you realized you are halfway through the year?!

What a great time to pause, reflect on all that you have achieved, and decide what the rest of the year will bring you.

BUT, let me caution you… Most people will focus on what they have not received, the goals that have not been realized, the end results that were less than satisfying. This is not the way that your mind operates at its very best.

Where attention goes, energy flows

You may have heard the saying: where attention goes, energy flows, and your focus grows! Now let’s break down into actual mind science. Your subconscious mind is like a computer. It does not care what program you run, whether that program is healthy or will hold you back, it’s only job is to run the program and to bring about the desired end results of that program.

If you are focusing on lack, what you don’t have, what’s missing, (in other words poverty consciousness), then your subconscious mind will do its best to bring more of that into your life.

It is time to break the back of lack in your life, celebrate what you have already succeeded at, and move forward with confidence and power!

So, here are your Goal Getting Success Steps:

1. Review your last six months for success. Write down at least six things that you felt great about during the first half of the year.

2. Now that you have your successes, write down the strongest emotion that was invoked from each success. You may find that there are repeating emotions, or you may find they are all different.

3. Pick one emotion out of your list and write it down where you can see it daily for the next month. Take a few minutes every day and program your mind for success by telling your subconscious that you want it to automatically find all the ways to experience this wonderful, life-giving emotion in your actions and your results.

4. Repeat this exercise for each of the remaining months of the year.

Your mind has been programmed to stop when you try to take care of yourself!

You’ve been conditioned to take care of others; at the expense of yourself. It’s not doing Success when it’s easy; it’s continuing to implement when it’s hard. And that’s the challenge, Success was there but you stopped. Fear will shut you down.
