Ways to Reduce Stress and Create Amazing Success

by Drs. Phillip and Jane Mountrose

In today’s fast-changing world, chronic stress is so common that people actually think it’s normal! If you listen to the news, this isn’t too surprising. It almost always sounds like things are getting worse and that there’s nothing you can do about it.

Most people believe that forces larger than themselves are preventing them from getting what they really want in life. It’s easy to fall into thinking that the world is working against you and there’s nothing you can do about it. Many people feel this way.

The effects of stress are an unfortunate consequence of this kind of thinking. The statistics are staggering. More than 70% of the population suffers regularly from psychological and/or physical symptoms of stress. It’s not just unpleasant. It destroys your opportunities to create the life you deeply desire.

Ready to take control of your stress and your life

WE HOPE SO! We did this and you can do it, too. When you set your mind to it, everything in your life can start to change, but you’re the only one who can do it. You alone generate your responses to the world around you. As John Milton stated so eloquently, “The mind is in its own place, and in itself can make a heaven of hell, a hell of heaven.”

Though it may not seem this way at first glance, situations are generally neutral. Our interpretations of them can make us feel happy or make us miserable. We realized that our responses to the world were dragging us down and decided to change.

Imagine that you are walking home and it starts to drizzle. Do you think, “What bad luck that it would start to rain right now” or might you think “We could really use some rain right now and a little drizzle never hurt anyone.” One response increases stress while the other makes you feel good. You might even decide to enjoy walking in the rain.

Here’s another example. Imagine someone you don’t know well approaches you and says “I heard you decided to join an optimists club. What were you thinking?” Would you be more likely to think the person is judging you or would you think the other person might be interested in learning more about what you’re doing?

In both cases, your response can create more or less stress. And as you may be seeing, prolonged stress can be devastating. The big picture is not a pretty one. Some estimate that around 90% of all illness is stress related. This includes heart disease, asthma, obesity, diabetes, headaches, depression, gastrointestinal problems, accelerated aging, and even premature death.

How to Turn Stress Into Happiness and Success

The first step in turning stress into happiness and success is simple. You CAN perceive and respond to situations differently. Then you can take positive steps to create the life you truly desire.

Taking control of your thinking is the first step in making any kind of positive change. Have you noticed how things always seem to work out for some people? Many say they are just lucky. You could also say that they create their own luck.

Wouldn’t be wonderful to be one of the luckiest people in the world and have more and more good things happening to you? You can! Milton’s thought that you alone make your life a heaven or hell is now a scientific fact. Your mind is powerful beyond belief and you have abilities that you haven’t even imagined.

The problem is that just about everyone has poor mental habits. When we think the same negative thoughts over and over, they become beliefs, our default ways of viewing the world. Our beliefs translate into well-traveled pathways in the brain that keep us stuck. Once they are established, we tend to travel on these same pathways again and again. Our beliefs also translate into genetic patterns that touch every cell of the body.

Contrary to popular opinion, your DNA is not fixed any more than your beliefs. You have the power to change the direction of your life on a DNA level! Isn’t that an amazing thought?

A Challenge for You

On this website, we suggest a variety of life-changing 30-day challenges. This is a coaching tool we use with our clients and students to help them to build new pathways in their brains and create positive mental habits, which transform stress into happiness and amazing success.

Here’s your challenge for the next 30 days. Starting NOW and as soon as you get up each morning, start repeating the following three statements to yourself throughout the day:

  • The world is on my side and anything is possible.
  • Things always work out miraculously well for me.
  • I am becoming one of the luckiest people in the world.

How do these thoughts compare with your habitual ways of viewing the world?

Would your life be less stressful if they were true for you?

If so, write them on sticky notes and post them everywhere. The more you say them and start to genuinely believe them, the closer you’ll get to creating heaven on earth. Stress will diminish and a new sense of well-being will start to emerge.

A key here is that you have to feel good when you say them. If you don’t feel good, it means you don’t believe them. If you are thinking “I can’t” or “I can,” either way you’re right.

When you feel good, you produce more thoughts that make you feel good (thinking “I can”), and spiral upward into greater levels of success. The opposite is also true. When you feel bad (thinking “I can’t”), you produce more thoughts that make you feel bad and spiral downward into more stress and ultimately you’ll fail to create the life you want.

Dealing with Negativity

If these positive statements make you feel angry or negative in any way, you simply don’t believe them. Don’t worry, that’s normal and we have a short cut to success. It’s unconventional, but it works! We use EFT (the Emotional Freedom Techniques) to turn ourselves around. You can learn more about EFT on our website at EFTMagicinMinutes.com.

These tips and the other information on this website should get you started. Once you do, be sure to stay on track. As Earl Nightingale once said, “You get what you think about most of the time.” It takes about 30 days to change a habitual thought. If you program yourself with these three positive thoughts for 30 days, you can start to reduce stress and create amazing success in miraculous ways.

 Wouldn’t just about everyone want to know the most essential secret for creating success in business and in life?

 There are a lot of possible answers:

  • You need to know what you want.
  • You have  to “think success.”
  • You probably need to know specific skills and strategies.

All of these are true and the first key is in your thinking. If your thinking is wrong, the skills and strategies won’t create success. Success guru Tony Robbins suggests that success is 90% thinking and 10% action and most highly successful people would agree.

This is the reason we focus so much on thinking on this blog. In this article, you are going to learn the most critical element of your thinking. It’s NOT focusing on thinking about what you want to have or what you can do. None of your dreams of what you want can come true without this single, critical element.

So what IS the bottom line?

It’s what you think ABOUT YOURSELF! You could also include what you BELIEVE about yourself and how you FEEL about yourself in your heart.

If you believe that you are inadequate or flawed or not good enough or not the right gender or too short or too young or too old, your limiting beliefs about yourself will drag you down.

The Real Truth of Who You Are

The truth, which has been proved in quantum physics, is that you have access to an infinite intelligence that runs through everything in the universe. You have power beyond your imagination. You are magnificent!

You may be thinking that this is easy to say, but hard to believe, and this is true. As with everything of value (and there is nothing more valuable than this), changing your belief takes consistent focus. With belief in yourself, you could view it as a lifelong journey of expansion and growth.

Some Keys to Success with Confidence and Self-Esteem

Over many years of working on ourselves and helping thousands of others to make positive changes in their lives, we have found three techniques to be particularly helpful.

1. Start to act more like the amazing person you are.

Here are a couple of simple suggestions:

(1.) Sit and stand up straight. You can do this now. Hold your head high and push your shoulders back. It’s amazing how this can change the way you feel. You can even add saying ” I am magnificent” like you mean it.

(2.) Dress and groom yourself like the successful person you want to become. When you feel good about the way you look, you feel better about yourself.

(3.) When you look at yourself in the mirror, say “I am magnificent!” to yourself or if possible, aloud, with feeling. If you do this every day, your belief in yourself will grow.

These things are external, but these habits will pay off if you follow them every day.

2. Build confidence and self esteem by reading and applying the techniques in two classic books.

(1.) How to Have Confidence and Power in Dealing with People by Les Giblin

(2.) How to Win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie

The main focus in these books is on valuing and paying positive attention to other people. When you do this, you also feel better about yourself. The key is to read a bit from one of them every day and apply what you learn.

3. Clear blocks with a quick and easy energy healing technique like EFT.  If you don’t know about EFT, you should. It’s a simple technique that seems very strange at first, but it’s amazingly effective. You just tap on specific points on the body to release blockages, which can include things like feeling inadequate for any reason, not believing you deserve the best things in life, and more.

As mentioned, raising your belief in yourself and what is possible for you is a lifelong journey and it’s one that is well worth your attention every day.

This Month’s 30-day Challenge

We hope you won’t just go from here to the next article on how to succeed in business and in life. Opportunity is knocking and you could completely transform your life if you follow the three suggestions above. You WILL, however, need to focus on this every day.

Your thirty day challenge, then, is to apply the suggestions in Item 1 above every day.

Here they are again:

1. Sit and stand up straight.

2. Dress and groom yourself like the successful person you want to become.

3. Every time you see yourself in the mirror, say “I am magnificent!”

When you look at yourself in the mirror dressed and groomed like the successful person you want to become, stand up straight, and say “I am magnificent!”, you’ll feel amazing. Try it today, you’ll see.

The Key to Success with the 30 Day Challenge

The key is in the follow through and this is where most people fall short. It has to be important to you or you won’t do it. Think about it for a moment so it’s clear in your mind.

Look at it this way. None of these things will take much time, but you’ll need to put reminders on sticky notes everywhere so you will see them throughout the day. If you do this and focus on all three of these suggestions, you will notice a BIG shift.

We also highly recommend the books and EFT clearing. All of these activities will contribute to creating awesome success.

Here’s a final reminder that applies to everything in life.

There’s no time like the present.

Don’t think for a moment that this is trite. If you don’t take action today, when will it happen? Most people put off living for their entire lives and this is probably not what you want. This is why taking simple steps starting today is so important. It’s your way of telling yourself that your life is important, that you are important, with NO EXCUSES!
