Interested in living a stress free life?

“It’s not stress that kills us; it is our reaction to it.” – Hans Selye

In today’s world people are drowning in stress. While some stress, like the stress of a deadline can motivate you to get a project done on time, all this stress can add up and after a while even what seems to be a small amount of stress can adversely affect your ability to perform adequately.

A research study entitled, “Cognitive Emotion Regulation Fails the Stress Test,” found that even a small amount of stress directly and negatively impacts a person’s ability to keep their emotions in check. ( The Proceedings for the National Academy of Sciences of the United States, vol. 110 no. 37, Candace M. Raio,  15139–15144) Continue reading

The Top 4 Morning Habits of Highly Successful People

Adapt these morning habits of highly successful people

“The real secret of success is enthusiasm.”Walter Chrysler

Sometimes is just hard to get enthused to go to work in the morning. Your eyes open but the long list of things to do overwhelm you before your feet hit the floor. When it comes right down to it there are tons of things you’d rather do than go to work today!

Job stress can dampen your enthusiasm and deplete your motivation. If you go to work in this state you won’t perform as well as you can and might not even perform up to expectations. After a while your boss may start to notice your lack of motivation.

But since your work is how you make your living it’s important to be able to overcome these feelings. You need to be able to knock down those obstacles while they are small before they begin to block your success.

One of the habits of highly successful people is to be able to build their enthusiasm each morning each morning before they even think about work. Think of this as a professional development plan, a stepping stone between where you are now and what you want to accomplish.

The following is a 4-step approach used by highly successful people to get every day started right: Continue reading


Learn How to Motivate Yourself to Accomplish Anything, Anytime, Anyplace

how to motivate yourself

Demotivated? here’s how to motivate yourself!

“And will you succeed? Yes indeed, yes indeed! Ninety-eight and three-quarters percent guaranteed!” – Dr. Seuss

Everyone can get motivated about some things, like brushing their teeth or paying their rent. The reason people are motivated to do these things is because there are immediate negative consequences, from being shunned by your friends to being kicked out into the street by not doing them.

This type of motivation is known as negative motivation.  The great thing about negative motivation is that for most people it works. However, negative motivation usually won’t work when there isn’t an immediate negative consequence.  It also doesn’t get people to take the action necessary to help them succeed.

Most people will do anything in their power to take action once they have a problem but they will do very little to avoid having the problem. They do very little to help themselves succeed.

For example, if a person has a heart attack they are compelled to change their lifestyle, changing their diet and exercise program. Now this same person’s doctor has been telling them for the last 10 years that they could have a problem if they kept going down the same path but did this get them off the couch?

Of course not, that’s why they had the heart attack! Continue reading

How to Stop Anxiety Without Drugs

Stop Anxiety Without Drugs

“Neither comprehension nor learning can take place in an atmosphere of anxiety.”Rose Kennedy

According to the Anxiety and Depression Association of America, “Anxiety disorders are the most common mental illness in the U.S., affecting 40 million adults in the United States age 18 and older.” The cost of this is enormous with more than $42 billion being spent every year to help people cope with anxiety disorders.

Today, people are finding it harder and harder to relax. The pace of life today is breathtaking. We are constantly connected to information flies flying at us at high speed making it difficult to impossible for many people to just let go and truly relax.
