Welcome to my e-book/blog, How is Stress Sabotaging Your Success? This has been an 8-month process to conceptualize, develop and finally publish my first writings on this topic. What brought me to this point is interesting.
I spent about 10 years working in the financial trading industry. I was first a trader myself and then became a trainer/coach to other financial traders. The time as a trainer/coach gave me a great insight into the mind of traders. I saw firsthand what were their challenges, how they coped with those challenges and helped them create solutions for those challenges.
Encyclopedia of Stress
My work with traders has allowed me to acquire an encyclopedia of knowledge on how stress effects people’s decisions. When I decided to expand my coaching practice to include more than traders, this knowledge has become invaluable. Entrepreneurs, business owners, and executives are no more immune from stressful decisions than are traders. The time frame may be longer for these individuals, but assuredly no less impactful.
So this e-book/blog is going to be a compendium of videos, articles, blog postings, and case studies all related to how stress effects a person’s thought process. Ultimately, the goal is to learn how to engage more fully in our lives, both personally and professionally.
In the coming weeks, we’ll be covering topics like leadership, performance, relationships, technology, and money just to name a few. We’ll identify the stress points in these areas and make suggestions as to how to make better, more conscious choices.
Information Is Not a Solution
I would like to point out that the information that is going to be presented here is just that, information. Information is unfortunately not a solution. My hope is that this information will be a path of self-discovery and better ways to deal with stress in your life.
In addition to the blog, I’ll also be publishing a newsletter. It will have the latest blog posting as well as articles and videos from the web. If you’d like to receive the newsletter, sign up here.
I’d love to hear what you think so please post your thoughts in the comment section. If you have any questions, feel free to forward those to firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you for reading.
