There has probably been a time where your back was against the wall and you had to react to a situation that involved dealing with lots of pressure. This might of gone something like this. You were put in a do or die situation that forced you to become more creative than you’ve ever been in your life. Therefore, you figured out how to overcome the situation. The opposite thing that would’ve happened would’ve been you absolutely crumbling under the pressure.
I’m not going to lie; I’ve been in both of these situations. Maybe you have pressure right now in your life. This may be financial pressure, maybe pressure with friends or family. Whatever it might be, it might not be as bad as you think. Something I really like to do when I’m experiencing pressure is asking myself okay, “What is the worst case scenario in this situation.” Nine times out of then, I realize that what I’m going through is not that bad. We live in a modern world where we take everything for granted. Most people need to toughen up. The world doesn’t owe you shit. So whatever you want, you have to go out and earn it.
I often hear people complain that they hate their job, their boss treats them unfairly, that they grew up struggling, or that their life isn’t fair, etc. Well, guess what, LIFE ISN’T FAIR. Innocent people are starving every day, innocent people being killed, babies are being born with life-threatening birth defects. That’s not fair.
So if you’re one of those people that are so entitled to think that it’s the end of the world just because you ran into a little road bump, you will crumble in this world. TOUGHEN UP. Now back to dealing with pressure, the first step is asking that question. Secondly, you need to practice putting yourself in uncomfortable situations. The goal is to get you to stay calm and collected whenever you experience stressful situations. If you can do this, you will be extremely successful.
So what are some examples of this? Some examples are taking cold showers, talking to strangers, asking out the girl/boy you like, putting all your money in a sacred account that you can’t touch when you know bills are due soon, etc. Pretty much anything that makes YOU uncomfortable.
In conclusion, if there are 2 things I want you to take away from this. Number 1, whatever your situation is, 9/10 it isn’t that bad so toughen up. Be grateful for what you already have. Number 2, start putting yourself in uncomfortable situations daily. This will force you to grow and eventually succeed.
