Imagine this!

Let’s make-believe that you have a person who works for you (you’re very rich!!!) and who follows you everywhere that you go. And let’s say that that person is like your ‘human wallet’ (they hold your money). Pretend for a second that you walk into a store, picked up some items that you like, took them to the checkout register and placed them on the counter. The cashier turns to you and tells you, “that will be $12,467…will that be cash or credit?”

You quickly say, “Cash!” Then you turn to your ‘ human wallet’ and put your hand out and he hands you the money to pay for your items. Oh what a great life!

Most often when we hear the word stress we automatically think that it’s a negative thing. But it’s not!

First of all, stress should be used interchangeably with energy because that’s all that it is. We are the ones who commonly label it as a negative thing when we feel it.

Suppose you have a major paper to write but you have no idea how to start it so you keep putting it off. Every day you feel the stress of having to accomplish and the due date is approaching soon. What do we normally say. “Man I’m stressed out…I don’t feel good about this at all.”Or maybe you have a major game to play and you feel what you can only call high stress.

Stress

What your body is doing is exactly what the ‘human wallet’ was doing for the rich imaginary you – it’s giving you what you need. Based on how you perceive your situation (the price) your body gives you the energy to do something about it (the payment).

Your body is trying to help you but the only thing it has to give is energy/stress. You have decide what to do with it.

Your stress isn’t firstly fear nor is it worry, it is first merely the energy you need to take care of the situation. You can use the energy to figure out what to do but if you don’t decide on what you want to do, it will overwhelm your senses.

How do you naturally deal with the early feeling of stress? What do you normally think is happening?

Mile 137: Who am I to say THIS about Cancel Culture! iS IT TRUE?

This new space in our culture called “cancel culture” where any person who disagrees with the growing popular perspective or have made a misstep verbally or behaviorally, whether in the present or in the past, can be cancelled (i.e. have economic means negatively impacted) is the epitome of a self-defeating movement. But…. This is not […]

Mile 137: (Question 3) Dealing with the rising emotions from the murder of George Floyd: a performance psychology strategy perspective.

I never thought that this process would have opened up the amount of deep conversations I’ve had with friends and colleagues because of what they’ve read in these posts. I appreciated every connection. Before I get into answering my final question in my process, I want to mention how inadequate what I’ve said and am […]

Mile 137: (Question 2) Dealing with the rising emotions from the murder of George Floyd: a performance psychology strategy perspective.

I have meditated on part 1 of my performance psychology strategy of analyzing my internal world because of our current cultural climate for a few days now. I’ve gotten to speak with some friends, pastors and business folk about their pov and listened to some podcasts. I’m trying to get different vantage points so I […]
