How Successful People Stay Calm - #Leadership

How Successful People Stay Calm - #Leadership | Leadership Advice & Tips | Scoop.it

The ability to manage your emotions and remain calm under pressure has a direct link to your performance. TalentSmart has conducted research with more than a million people, and we’ve found that 90% of top performers are skilled at managing their emotions in times of stress in order to remain calm and in control.


The tricky thing about stress (and the anxiety that comes with it) is that it’s an absolutely necessary emotion. Our brains are wired such that it’s difficult to take action until we feel at least some level of this emotional state. In fact, performance peaks under the heightened activation that comes with moderate levels of stress. As long as the stress isn’t prolonged, it’s harmless.

This is simply not rocket science, but something that we have always known about, and perhaps forgotten down the road. Stress management has been the key to the success of everyone living in a society bordering on chaos. The successful mother, the mature director, the 'Mr Cool Dude' are all metaphors of successful people who manage their stress levels to remain calm even in the most challenging of situations. True, some might have an innate capability for remaining calm, but then others can train themselves too!

just imagine some professions like Armed Forces, Medicine, Airline Pilots, shipping, police where stress levels are very high, yet many of them remain so calm and composed.  Its comes through extensive training. I guess we all have the potential to control our stress levels and be happy. Good reading

Very interesting article!

 

In this article they refer to different leaders in varied industries to make a point.  Leaders get better....not necessarily because of practice; however, due to the strong working relationships they have built.

 

"You’d think that doing thousands of heart surgeries would make you better at them.  Not necessarily.Surgeons only got better at their home hospital: the one where they knew the team best and developed strong working relationships."

After looking at the lives of certain great men, I was able to come up 13 rules that high achievers never break. If you obey these rules, you will become a high achiever too.

1. Don’t compare your life to others and don’t judge them; you have no idea what their journey is all about.

Stop trying to be someone else. We all have our own distinct purposes in life. Be yourself always and become the best version of you. You are original, not a counterfeit.

Some great advice for life!
