Wylie McGraw is here to teach us what unresolved chronic stress is, how it impacts our performance, and what we can do about it. Who you are and how you operate in your life directly affect those around you. When you are optimized and operating at a high level, your life is better, and so are theirs.
Chronic stresses are those unresolved things that you have carried your entire life from your life experiences. They create undetectable patterns of doubt, fear, and cautiousness that impact your ability to perform and hold back your actual potential.
When something is continuously reoccurring repeatedly, that means you have unresolved chronic stresses. They have not been addressed or eradicated. Until you get to the core of why those things are happening, you will continue to experience them.
When we start going into the self-awareness aspect and digging deep into finding out that what we carry around, we see that what we carry creates the situations and scenarios around us. When you focus your attention on work, you’ll be surprised at how much chronic stress impacts the world around us and creates all the problems we face.
You can have all the strategies you want, but you are still trying to control the unknown. You have to surrender and yield to the unknown. Learn how to create from ambiguity and white space, not from stress and chaos.
When you optimize every aspect of who you are in your relationship with yourself, you know how to utilize and manage the everyday stresses of life, running businesses, and dealing with other dynamics.
Leadership is how you show up.
