Did you know that there are seven words that can eradicate stress immediately?
I was under a huge amount of pressure back in 2003 to 2015. It was the second Gulf War. I was a lieutenant commander in the Australian navy, and I was in charge of the operational section that helped ships go into the middle-east. There were really stressful situations, and I almost burn’t myself out. I had one of my troops say to me “Sir, you know what, you’re just way too stressed”. It was then that I learned ‘seven words’ that changed my life.
Then moving into becoming an entrepreneur, I realised the stress doesn’t end. There are just so many things that can make you stressed and overwhelmed. Then on top of this you have to juggle home life too!
As an entrepreneur, it is unbelievably important that you’re not reacting with a ‘knee-jerk’ reaction. That’s when we really make mistakes.
There are ‘seven words’ that have helped me gain a huge amount of perspective in stressful situations. They have helped me take my business from being a startup business to a very solid seven figure business.
Whenever you’re in a stressful situation, ask yourself this question; “will this matter in five years time?”
