Success Without Stress?

What if stress, pressure and overwhelm are not required for a successful life?

In our society we have come to believe that stress, pressure, overwhelm, etc. come with life, especially if you want to be successful.  Virtually every waking moment of life we are in survival mode, (also known as “Flight or Fight” mode), rushing, worrying, stressed, trying to keep everyone happy or avoiding disappointing anyone in hopes that someday we’ll get our shit together and it will be better.

In the meantime, days, weeks, months even years go by without any relief because someday never comes. You look around and see everyone seems to be in the same situation so it becomes normalized and accepted as just the way it is. We look for strategies to cope with stress, pressure and overwhelm as if they are reality.

Life doesn’t have to be this way. In fact it is possible to eliminate stress, pressure, frustration, overwhelm, etc. as a problem.  When you understand that stress, pressure, overwhelm and similar emotions are created in our imagination, or better said are the result of our thinking rather than a RESULT of events or situations.

Think about it, you can’t point to stress as a “thing” in the world.  It’s a concept not a thing. Any event you believe to be the cause of your stress can be experienced a different way.  For example, a job promotion may be experienced as exciting or stressful. Same event; different experiences. What’s the common denominator? Thinking! We feel/experience our thinking 100% of the time. 

This is extremely good news because thinking changes moment to moment like a cloud on a windy day and you don’t have to do anything. Trying to think positively is not required; trying to alter your experience or feeling is not required.  All that’s needed is an understanding that thoughts are NOT reality. Thoughts are merely energy passing through your brain and when left alone they will pass through and new thoughts will arise.

Our natural state is well-being – peace, joy and freedom. The “you” that came before thinking is within you.  You were born with it – innate well-being.  When you don’t get caught up in believing your thinking and you remember that thoughts are not reality – you have instant access to peace, joy and freedom.

That beats stress, pressure and overwhelm any day.
