Time stress is also forced on us because we have more tasks imposed by others. This “Monkey on shoulder” syndrome can be resisted by increasing your firmness.Anticipatory stressThis is anxiety about upcoming events.Many of us will experience a situation where we are worried that “something” will be wrong before the assignment or event or that someone will not like us or that there must be a better candidate for a job.So why not attract success in your life instead? In “The Secret”, Dr. Denis Waitley described the following strong visualization studies:”I took the visualization process of the Apollo program, and institutionalized it during the 1980s and 90s into the Olympic program. It was called visual motor training.When you visualize you come true.Meditation is an extraordinary way to restore the level of calm in your mind and body. Sandra and I am currently participating in the daily meditation program from Deepak Chopra and Oprah Winfrey which has a big impact on the way we face challenges and pressures in our busy lives.vincent Lombardi concluded it perfectly: “Not whether you were torn down but did you wake up.”Situational stressThis type of stress, according to Albrecht, is when we really lose control over a situation. Redundancy, sadness, and personal conflict all tend to fall into this type of stress.Just like King Canute who is trying to stop the sea, we can not always prevent the situation from happening. But what we can control is the way we respond to the situation.If you remember the definition of Richard Lazarus’s stress, it is when we don’t control a situation.
