Number two is the meaning we place on the things we focus on.
The world is meaningless until we place meaning on it. We create the meaning we experience over and over again. It's always fascinating when I'm running a virtual training for hundreds of people and I ask one question, 'What does love mean to you?'
Almost everyone has a different answer. For some, love is everything, or it's challenging, or it's something held within your heart, or it's scary or something you experience with your family.
So is love universal or is it the meaning we place on it that comes from us? We're in control of the meaning we place on everything. It's in our hands, and we get to choose if it's positive or negative.
The third way to manage yourself under pressure is to take action.
The biggest mistake people make is they are wishing and hoping for something in their life to change. They're not willing to do something about it.
One thing I live by is that you don't alway have to take massive action. There's a time and a place for that, but it can freak a lot of people out and that leads to a whole bunch of anxiety.
Her's how to handle that: say you have a goal of experiencing more peace. Ask yourself, 'What's one thing I can do today?' Just one. Work it out and do it.
So everyone is in control of their stuff. That includes you. In changing times and when you're under pressure, take internal responsibility.
Control your focus. Control your meaning. Control your actions.
If this is something that interests you, I'd love you to join me at TCI's global coaching summit 'How To Become A Relationship Coach' on August 1.
It could be the ultimate journey towards your heart and the heart of others.
