In a survey conducted by Glamour Magazine, 64% of women said they feel pressured to be successful and that getting there is stressful. What a crazy way to live, don’t you think? Looking outside ourselves places undue pressure to keep up with the Joneses. By staying centered and present on your values and desires will help keep the stress at bay.
Maggie Doyne of BlinkNow talks about stress like this: “stressing about a problem is different from solving one.” For this reason, I created the Emotional Intelligence tool, Confidence in a Can, (and no…it’s not a bottle of beer). Confidence in a Can helps you to notice how you deal with stress and to define and deliver new ways to overcome it.

Blake Mycoskie and CEO of Tom’s Shoes talks about stress, becoming a Dad, being an executive and how he decided to de-stress during this immense transition. The lessons that he learned can help guide you to enjoy a stress free Holiday season.
Lesson 1: Truly dedicate to unplug, even if for a day
Learn to be present. Your smartphone and email is not what validates you as being important. It’s your actions, your self-awareness and confidence that validates your importance in the world.
Lesson 2: Gratitude is a miracle tool
When thrown into new experiences or situations learn to notice the little blessings along the way. There must be something nice you can say or notice about your in-laws, isn’t there?
Lesson 3: You get to choose to see the best in people
“Sometimes the best defense is no defense at all.” Put aside the blame, the judgment, the finger pointing. You never know what the other person is going through.
Lesson 4: Take good care of others, but first take good care of yourself
In order to serve others, we must first serve ourselves. Just like on an airplane when the oxygen mask deploys, your oxygen gets put on first before helping others. The same holds true in life.
Lesson 5: Fall in love
Love brings about a feeling of being grounded and confident. Love offers a kind of euphoria where everything seems right with the world.
Confidence in a Can helps jump start that feeling of connectedness, by requiring you to be present in your daily actions. Through learning new ways of viewing the same old things (two sides to every coin), you learn how to be self-assured with a renewed sense of how to serve yourself and others.
