Pressure can be a negative or positive experience. It can serve as your motivation for success or it could be the genesis of your failure. How you handle the pressures of life will determine your character.
The element of surprise is not only a characteristic of memorable birthday parties. It is also one of the most underrated agents of living. Pressure takes on an element of surprise whenever you happen to be having an unplanned ordeal. You must adjust and strive toward becoming and remaining stress-free. Pressure has its way of unraveling the fabric of your tranquility.
Here are some steps to maintaining your harmony and peace of mind. First, realize that you can't control everything. Second, realize that you can control your responses to everything...no matter how chaotic it may seem. Third, understand that everything happens for a reason...even when you can't understand the reason(s). Fourth, make a conscious effort to see at least one good thing in whatever comes your way. Finally, no matter how many times you have to adjust and re-adjust your actions and responses...never quit.
Life, at times, can be as unstable as the earth's core. Be still and let the pressure push you to the top with the dazzling brilliance of a diamond...and shine!
It's beautiful to be you...simply beautiful!
