"How hard it is, sometimes, to trust the evidence of one's senses! How reluctantly the mind consents to reality."

Are You Sweating The Small Stuff?
The things you stress about seem important at the time, but later you may realize you've wasted a lot of energy over nothing at all. Keep your perspective!
Even the most daunting dune on the pathway of life is made up of nothing more than grains of sand.
Today's Idea For Action is from the TQ Energy Color: Immediately Stop Worry from Dragging Your Performance Down.

Now, ask yourself the following three questions:
- Are the things you're stressed about right now "big stuff" or "small stuff?" Says who?
- How much of what was so crucial a moment ago will even matter next week?
- Which potentially stressful tasks on tomorrow's schedule will get better if you alter your perspective?
So, Just How Committed to High Achievement Are You?
Think about it. How well and how often do you actually do Energy Factor 1F? (Immediately Stop Worry from Dragging Your Performance Down.) No question, this is a major driver of personal and professional success.
A high commitment (1F rated 8 or better) suggests you never play the victim to your worries. By focusing on the actions you can take, rather than the negative conditions of the problem, you maintain your momentum even when besieged with negative situations. Everyone has reasons to worry, but you're able to work through your concerns without wasting precious energy before correcting or improving the situation. Once resolved, your energy level actually increases due to positive feelings that come from correcting a bad situation.
A lack of commitment suggests you're often a victim of your worries. You can burn a lot of energy as you sit and picture the most unfavorable things that could happen -- thereby draining your energy level. As you focus on "worst case" scenarios, you rob yourself of the energy and motivation needed to take action. This leaves you with little energy to actually resolve the problem. What's more, these overriding concerns keep you from completing your other tasks. This leads to a negative spiral of additional stress stealing away more energy.
What happens when you do TQ Factor 1F more frequently?
You have more power. Worries never drain your positive energy for long.
You accumulate performance positives like "Revitalized, Enlivened and Proactive" -- immediately moving you towards the results you expect.
What happens when you fail to consistently do TQ Factor 1F?
You have less power. You do nothing but sit and worry and end up exhausted.
Negatives like "Stressed, Overwhelmed and Worried" start to take their toll on your performance -- quickly moving you away from the success you want.
