Dealing with issues

30 Oct

We can never have enough tips on how to deal with stress, brought about by some of those issues we have to deal with. It’s important to find and understand what works for us and stick with the winning formula.

I use the following to reduce stressful issues:

Stand back: so that you’re looking at the whole picture. When we stand back we allow ourselves to think about the whole issue instead of panicking, making the wrong decisions, or making no decisions …

Creating success

29 Oct

People don’t always consciously think about success, but will often look for ways to be successful. If we were to think about success in this way, we will have already failed through the pressures of thinking we need to succeed and being worried that we wouldn’t.

How we choose to deal with our issues is the key to success, but to do that we need to maintain a positive mental attitude, be willing to work hard and not let any form of discouragement stop us from …

Because of those things, we will have very limited understanding and without understanding we will find those things difficult to accept. Perhaps if we begin to look at things differently, we will understand more than we think.

If we understand that there will always be certain things happen that we will never come to understand, we’re more likely to find acceptance on those things, like why good people die early and the …
