This is the first of three blog posts dealing with some stress! There are three types of stress in life: Emotional, Chemical, and Physical.
Most of the population is a victim of stress. Everyone has troubles, day to day worries and concerns no matter what they do. Everyone has had one of those days when things just don’t go right, and it seems the stress will keep piling on. When dealing with stressful problems, I want you to follow the 80-10-10 principle. 80% of the time things you do will work out, 10% work out fair, and only 10% of the things will never, ever work out.So work, relationships, family/friends, no matter what, 80% of the time people will approve, 10% basically won’t care, and the other 10% will disapprove. Hopefully this will help reduce some stress if we realize this. Nobody is right all the time (except maybe the wife) and all we can do is take a deep breath and try our best.
We also place high value on negative experiences. We can have one hundred good things happen to us, but when one bad thing happens, that’s all we can think about. It’s easier to get fixated on these negative experiences, but we have to try not to. A positive mindset can help even on the most stressful of days. Don’t let the negative outweigh the good!
Hopefully this helps!
