How would it feel to achieve success and remain stress-free?

Does the pursuit of success leave you feeling stressed?

Does chasing success cause you stressful days and sleepless nights?

I’ll be successful when…

Success can be elusive. It seems as if it is just beyond your grasp. One more product to launch. One more big customer to land. A little more income.

You have a picture of the success you’re striving for, but it keeps morphing. You keep thinking you should feel successful by now, but you don’t, not yet.

My stress will ease when…

Whilst success can seem elusive, stress seems so easy to find. You have lots on your plate. people are demanding more time and energy of you than you can spare. You want people to step up and help but you don’t know how to ask, or you’re not sure if they can. People around you don’t seem to understand what you need them to do. You feel responsible for everything and it’s not working as smoothly as you want.

How to find your Stress-free Success

Stress and lack of success are intertwined. I don’t think you can feel success if you are stressed out. I don’t know of any role models that are stressed out to the max all the time.

There is a path to stress-free success, but it involves some work. There is no magic wand, or quick acting pill that brings a sustainable feeling of success. Each person has different things that cause them stress, just as each person has a different model of success. The work need not be difficult though if you find the right help and learn the right tools.

The path involves understanding which personal values you hold strongly and figuring out which are in conflict rather than alignment. There is a similar process for getting clear on your own definition of success, stripping away any external pressures. Coupling this new clearer understanding with self-care and personal effectiveness (like personal productivity but more rounded) tools you can start your journey to stress-free success.
