Three Guides to Reduce Stress and Anxiety

"In the EXCHANGE Mode,
The Ticking Clock
is a pressure cooker
of added stress and
burdensome anxiety!"
~Phillip A. Lopez

Throughout the days of our lives, we find ourselves in the mode of continuous Exchange ~ Activity for Time. In the pursuit to deliver our Highest Human Potential we should find this exchange without stress and anxiety. But, what about deadlines of priority, external and internal distractions, limitations of resource, time, working capital, manpower? These are the ingredients found in the recipe to cook-up a batch of stress and anxiety.  

Today, Your only job is to learn HOW to control the flame and reduce the heat…

But, HOW?!?

To do so let us embrace Three Guides to Reduce Stress and Anxiety;

~Don’t Sweat the Small Things…
Activity for Time… The enemy we all face in the Exchange mode is the onslaught of negative emotion. These emotions can range from;

 -- Shame; for stepping into the sh!t of life,
 -- Embarrassment; other's can see the goo on your shoe,
 -- Loss of Confidence; How could I be this ...

The added stress of choosing a directed starting point, soon becomes compounded by the anxiety of making the correct choice, multiplied by urgency and then complicated by the sudden unavailability of time. This undesirable paradox can easily become overwhelming to the point of choice paralysis; and may rapidly advance even to the point of  psychological depression. Please, do not fear... there is a direction out and this direction assures that there must be a starting point.

The most significant point for you to remember is this...
  ~  You are not alone!  ~  Your quest is to assist the Universe, to provide improvement to the human condition; You have heard a Universal cry for help, You have responded to the Universe, I Can Do That, The Universe has accepted your response, and now the Universe is looking to spiritually ally with you to deliver the abundance of solution. Rejuvenate your spirit in stillness; raise yourself, emotionally and physically to absorb the words and voice of Universal awareness.

History is filled with all sorts of wonderful recoveries by even the most adored public successes:
 --Henry Ford - BROKE! In the early development of the internal combustion engine, He had to get the permission of Mrs. Ford in order to borrow some money from their savings so that he could have a few parts made. Together, they convert their kitchen into a testing lab… looking to ignite a metal piston through a steel cylinder.
 --Thomas Edison - BOUNCED out of school due to the lack of his ability to comprehend an education. We know the legend of his inventive mind. A legend of solutions which have and continue to impact the improvement of the human condition.
 -- What about Albert Edison, Abraham Lincoln, Walt Disney, the late great, Steve Jobs, and Kailash Satyarthi, and Malala Yousafzai; in common, each of these individuals was blessed with the opportunity to sharpen their Exchange skills. That's right, you are not the first to venture down this path, nor will you be the last.

So, are You ready?

~All Things are Small...

Years ago I read an interview of Wally "Famous" Amos. What many have always found interesting about Wally is that he virtually started with nothing! Of course we all know that he Exchanged a life of poverty and at one point he built a global enterprise around 'chocolate-chip cookies'.

In the interview Wally was asked, "HOW did you know where to get started?" At the time, Wally's reply caught me off guard. I figured he would weave a response filled with the requirements of great entrepreneurial skills, or the necessity to plan every detail, or the requirement to entice venture capital. But he didn't. In summary, his reply was, 'I started with me! I came, one day, to the realization that I was responsible for the outcome of my life. That my achievements in life would not come from the things that I Did Have; But rather, my achievements in life would have to come from the things that I Did Not Have. That if I really wanted to do something with my life, I was going to have to be responsible to make sure that I obtained these things.'

I am convinced that the point Wally was attempting to make was this; Exchange is 'an inside job'. That the starting point of all achievement begins with the person that stares back at you in the mirror! You know, the bloke you brush your teeth with every morning... Yeah, that guy!

Before we get along too far...
  let me ask you a very important question  --
Are you confident enough to stare into the eyes of your friend in
the mirror? You will need to be! After all, the person in the mirror
cannot survive without you. And you cannot survive without the
person in the mirror.

So take a minute, go to the mirror... introduce yourself to that person (shoe goo and all). Take a good look at this person. Come on, take a good look! You are staring at the person who holds the keys to your share of the claim of achievement. Do you feel comfortable with what you see? What if you discover that, this is the person who keeps imposing false self-limitations?

You need to understand, from day one, that there are no elevators to the delivery of your highest potential. That's right - You, like those who have Exchanged before you, are gonna have to take the stairs. So, go ahead - Ask that person - "If they are willing to travel down the pathway of Obtainment with you." Come on, you're traveling partners... ask if that person is tough enough to carry you through the ups and downs, through the sleepless nights, to stand with you through the early snow of Fall, through the bitter cold of Winter, through the blistering heat of Summer. Ask that person… "So, how GOOD can you stand it?" -- This is the starting point!

~Can’t flee?  FLOW…

Regardless, of your Purpose, you will deliver it through AMBITION - Not Anxiety, Not by Inducing Stress, Not Panic, Not Sympathy, Not Self Pity!  Only in the FLOW of Universal harmony will You find the abundance of solution to deliver. Imagine for one minute that you have No Limitations on what you can Be, Do, or Give... only the FLOW of AMBITION will take you there!!

Recognize that the Universe is so vested in your OneGR8Life that it moves with singular objective; to raise you to it’s level of consciousness. You are invited to: hear a Universal cry for help, to respond to that cry; I Can Do That. To move forward in courage and confidence; The Universe has accepted Your response. It now looks to create a spiritual alliance, to deliver the abundance of solution.

Rejuvenate your spirit in stillness; raise yourself, emotionally and physically to absorb the words and voice of Universal awareness. Find your FLOW, Dream it, Create it, Live it.

YES, There is something extraordinary about the feeling received as we Exchange in the direction of fulfilling our purpose; while maintaining an Ambitious thought as simple as - I Can, I Will!

Until you prove to me otherwise, I WILL remain confident in your abilities and your desire to Exchange.
