You may be thinking, "Are you sure that stress helps? It seems to me that stress just hurts!" 

Do you find it confusing when I say that stress helps?

Keep reading to learn how stress helps and to find out how I can help you tap into the benefits of stress.

Everyone knows stress hurts.

Stress causes or contributes to all kinds of problems. It makes your life miserable.

It is common knowledge that stress also harms.

  • Mentally—stress makes it hard to think. You find it difficult to focus when you are stressed-out.
  • Physically—stress can make you sick and, if you are already sick, it can keep you from getting well.
  • Spiritually—stress makes you think you are bad and God is mad at you.
  • Socially—stress makes you irritable, less tolerant, and more likely to get involved in a conflict.

Here's how stress helps.

What you may not know is that stress helps.

Stress can be defined as all the energy generating processes that happen in your body when you have a task to complete, a challenge to reach, or a need to meet.

Stress has many benefits including…

  • Producing energy
  •  Increasing strength
  • Enhancing performance
  • Intensifying enjoyment
  • Escalating growth

When you are stressed, you are in touch with an unmet need. You may not consciously know what the unmet need is, but at some level, your brain knows. It is the presence of an unmet need that triggers the stress response.

When you are stressed, you are motivated to change. Stress makes you feel intense desire either to experience pleasure (Example: I want to do well on this project so I will get a promotion) or to avoid pain (Example: I want to get rid of this neck pain and headache).

When you are stressed, you are empowered to flourish. You have the desire to change for the better and you have the energy and strength to do so. You are primed for success.

All you have to do is tap into all that potential.

But how?

That's where I come in.
