Getting stressed out is easy. All you need is a sly comment from a colleague, too many things on your to-do list, a smooth scroll through social media to remind you that you “aren’t where you want to be.”As we go through life, many people consider being stressed as the norm. They think that it's something inevitable that we can’t avoid... it's what has to happen if we want success, right?
How often do you long for something new or something different than what you’ve been used to but your not willing to do what scares you? We're conditioned to believe that everything that has happened to us in the past, has to be the norm in our everyday lives. But what if you started saying yes more to the things that terrify you?
