Not all stress is bad. There is positive stress, and there is negative stress. You want to minimize the negative stress, while increasing appropriate positive stress. You can do this in a number of ways. One such method is as follows and has much to do with good motivation. * Develop the will to change circumstances. Every one has the ability to change, but not all are willing to (for a variety of reasons). * Develop a vision which is a clearly articulated picture of the future you intend to create for yourself. In other words, it's a dream. However, if the dream does not have direction, it will always be nothing more than a dream and will never become a reality. Thus, the following. * Once you establish the vision (dream), you must create a road-map with short-term goals and objectives that will indicate you are moving in the right direction (toward the overall goal, the vision) and will give you incentive to keep going. * To achieve successful outcomes you will have to be 100% committed, and must hold on even in the face of some obstacles without discouragement, without letting go until your vision becomes a reality. The reason why some individuals succeed, while others fail, lies in their ability to not get discouraged. It's all about attitude. Attitude is everything! The old saying goes, "10% aptitude, 90% attitude." Just make sure you look at your dream in SMART fashion. In other words, * Make sure your dream is Specific. * Make sure it is Measurable (how will you know you're moving in the right direction?) * Make Sure it is Attainable. * Make sure it is Realistic. * Make sure it is Tangible. What exactly will be the end result?

Lastly remember this; the true measure of a man (meaning mankind, male and female) is not based on the cloths they wear, not on how much money they have, not their position in life, and not the mark they leave on the world. The true measure of a man is based on what it takes to discourage him.

Never let go of the dream! The only way someone can take away that dream, is if you let them. Hold on until it becomes a reality. Work out of passion, a love for what you do, and the benefit it brings others as well as yourself.

Best wishes!!
