In Times Of Crisis Know Your Strengths
Everyone has a different level of tolerance for stressful situations. You might find that what is stressful of you might be a mild inconvenience for another person. Understanding that variation in temperament can make or break the way we handle the situations we find ourselves in. You are the only person who is control of your circumstances because only you control your actions. With noise and additional stressors focused around you, it will complicate matters.
The first thing you need to do is observe the actors in the matter at hand. For the most part, that will include you, those involved in decision making, and anything that creates the tension you are experiencing. Humans are challenging creatures and we are often the source of most conflicts. It is just in our nature to be problematic at times. This in no way excuses unreasonable behavior, but it should put into perspective that you can also be a stressor without realizing it. Be mindful of your actions and how they affect others: this will help you in navigating a sticky situation.
Knowing who is involved is just the first step: you also need to determine who and what is affected by the current “crisis”. Those affected will have routine actions hampered as a consequence of the tension created. There will be persons who are directly affected and indirectly affected. You need to understand that each action will have a consequence and how you resolve the situation, should benefit all parties involved.
Stress is a vital part of life and there’s no going around that. The only way to combat stress is to build your mental resilience. While some persons handle stress better than others, it is a trait that can be developed. Don’t think that it is just a gift that you inherit by being lucky. Chances are that if you can manage high-stress, high-tension situation is because you have has experience in circumstances with high demands.
What really makes stress detrimental is its mismanagement. When handled properly, it’s a character-building tool and has positive effects on professional and personal development.
