Thoughts from Worry Free Island: There is a very famous saying that 90% of success, comes from just showing up. I tend to agree, because so many people think that they can get someone to do the hard work for them. It is only when YOU actually turn up that you can get things underway. More so than ever now we are looking for solutions to situations that we may never have encountered before, and there is a sense of urgency in all the things we do. We are trying to achieve results by half doing things, and when we get no result, it makes us feel further away from any solution.
Having the ability to RELAX and take a look at ourselves is one of the best ways to regroup. Rushing at things and doing a bit here, and a bit there, when we are stressed, is rather like a man trying to get out of a hole by scraping at the sides, and the sides keep falling in. At the end of the day we feel we have done all we can and we are exhausted, but we are actually worse off than when we started. We would be much better off conserving our strength and working out a solution. At the end of the day then we could feel satisfied, and even if we have not solved the problem we would feel more in control because we would have eliminated a lot of ways that would not work, without expending excessive effort for no gain.
TIP: Make sure that your actions are always efficient and effective, that way you will reach the end of the day feeling satisfied, that all that could be done , has been done. This is a great way to help get rid of anxiety and stress.
