This week I gave two seminars to different corporations. At Halliburton, I gave on talk on $O$ for Stress: How to stop worrying about the economy and everything else. About 85 employes attended. Basically, the message was to develop life balance, reduce negative self-talk, exercise, communicate with family and friends to keep manage stress. Did you know that 80% of all visits to family doctors are for stress related disorders and problems? Reducing worry requires diligence in focusing on what you can control and letting go of thoughts and worries that never come true anyway. The other talk was for Aetna Insurance on Change Mastery. This talk had to do with overcoming fear of change, procrastination and perfectionism. Looking at your denial about change, expectations and acceptance helps you understand your resistance or ability to adapt. In essence, the more you embrace change, remain optimistic, and work proactively, the more “psychologically hardy” you become.
