Under Pressure? Diamonds Are Formed Under Pressure.Jun 13, 2019
How do you handle yourself Under Pressure? The whole world is under pressure. Global economies are taking strain and markets are changing. Pressure situations always have one of two outcomes: you either succumb to it or you rise above it.
Rising above it requires more effort. It means that you need to apply yourself and your resources towards finding a way to win.
Some of the greatest inventions came from pressure situations where something just had to change. The same applies in your personal and business life. Pressure sets up an opportunity for something to change and, with the right attention, to change for the better.
Here are some tips that can help overcome pressure situations:
Decide what outcome is ideal for you. Know what it is you want to achieve. Know where you want to be and get clear on what that looks like.
The Bible says that “Faith is being sure of what we hope for, and certain of what we do not see.” Often we can’t see solutions clearly and we need to have faith and trust that we will weather the storm and overcome whatever we’re facing.
Take the first step! Take actions that move you towards your ideal outcome. Even small, positive, proactive actions, like a phone call or a conversation, can set off a wheel in motion that can assist you in getting to your ideal outcome.
Persevere to breakthrough. Once you generate momentum, it’s vital to keep at it until you cross the finish line.
Ultimately, pressure will make you stronger and more beautiful. Diamonds are formed from coal under pressure. Your pressure situation is a diamond in the making!
