Great Quotes About Stress 3

For my third and final helping of great stress quotes this week, I’ve decided to feature a series of eight quotes all from the same author and all once again courtesy of http://www.brainyquote.com .

The author of these powerful thoughts is Andrew Bernstein, and he’s one of the few experts on stress whom I completely agree with.

In case you missed the first two helpings of stress quotes this week, here are the links:

Andrew Bernstein On Stress

We need to distinguish between stress and stimulation. Having deadlines, setting goals, and pushing yourself to perform at capacity are stimulating. Stress is when you’re anxious, upset, or frustrated, which dramatically reduce your ability to perform.

****

If you’re successful and stressed out, you’re succeeding in spite of your stress, not because of it.

****

The truth is that stress doesn’t come from your boss, your kids, your spouse, traffic jams, health challenges, or other circumstances. It comes from your thoughts about these circumstances.

****

The less you think counterfactually, the less you experience stress. Stress, in this light, isn’t a bad thing. It’s simply a warning system telling you that your mind has lost touch with what’s real.

****

It’s time we learned the truth about stress. It’s time we identified the thoughts that actually create our stress and learned to dismantle them one by one.

****

You can’t tell yourself that your stress is produced in your head and feel better. You still need to learn how to create a change.

****

Look closer at the stress in your own life and you can identify that negative emotions are always built on counterfactual statements.

****

Stress is a byproduct of subconscious beliefs you have about the world. You can’t choose not to believe something. You believe it because you think it’s true. To eliminate stress, you must learn to challenge these beliefs so that you see them differently.
