Stress and anxiety are part of the majority of our daily lives. The constant “rollercoaster” of life is increasing in speed and some times it all becomes impossible to CONTROL.
However, the issue of control is probably causing the stress and anxiety.
Learning that there is very little in life that we can control is possibly the most important lesson I constantly need to lean and re-learn. If we look at our lives from “above” it becomes evident that the only thing we have real control over is our mind and it is up to us to guard it wisely.
“I’ve had a lot of worries in my life, most of which never happened.”
There is no doubt that it is important to have a philosophy to live and work from. The development of this can only come from reflection and hard work. However, this hard work will help you to have a solid foundation to all that you do.
People and clients need to know what you stand for and what is it about you that sets you apart from others. Not what makes you better than others but what is your Trademark or what I prefer your philosophy.
I always say that mine is based on maximising the potential of people I come in contact with be it students or athletes. However, this may sound a trifle superficial so it needs to be developed further. What I believe is that we are all here for a reason, we all have great potential BUT sometimes we need help in unleashing that potential. I know I have had people that have helped me in my life do this and therefore it is my mission to do that for others.
What is your philosophy?
