91/365 – ” Have you increased you capacity to handle stress? ”
As we become older and more skilled, our ability to influence the world generally increases.
We go from doing the grunt work – to managing teams and individuals – making decisions that affect many instead of one. Similarly, both the positive and negative impact we can have on the world and the community around us increase.
Influence and responsibility always go hand in hand – and with that – the number of situations to potentially stress about also increases.
As a result, it’s also critical for us to invest in our capacity to handle stress. Otherwise, we may just become overwhelmed by our own success.
