Forget everything you know about stress
If you're like most people, you probably think stress is an inevitable part of life. The truth is: It's not. In a groundbreaking 30-year study, Dr. Derek Roger has discovered that everything we think we know about stress—and how we should "manage" it—is just plain wrong.
Stress is a choice
It is not a natural response to the pressures of work. It's a choice you make, consciously or not, to worry and fret and agonize over the work you need to do—instead of just doing it.
Work doesn't have to be stressful for you to be successful
This book offers a radically different approach to stress. It's about being resilient. Flexible. Mentally awake and in the moment. It's about changing your mind-set to keep things in perspective instead of adding fuel to the fire with negative thoughts. The techniques you'll find in this book are powerful, practical, and proven to work—without stress.
A revolutionary approach to preventing stress that is evidence based, life changing, and scientifically proven to work
Why do some people get stressed while others stay calm, cool, and collected under pressure? According to renowned stress researcher Dr. Derek Roger, the answer lies in resilience—your ability to cope with challenges and thrive under adversity rather than ruminating and obsessing over them. In lab-controlled studies, he discovered that the key to "managing" stress is to stop it before it starts. To be resilient, flexible, and ready for anything.
The culmination of three decades of research, this book presents a practical and proven program of simple step-by-step techniques that you can use to:
Adjust your mind-set and work more efficientlyControl your response to any kind of pressureDetach and let go of negative thoughtsPut things in perspective and focus on what mattersDevelop a stress-free leadership styleBuild more resilient teams and organizationsGive constructive feedback and communicate effectivelyDifferentiate between caring (useful) and worrying (useless)Open your mind to new approaches and ideasReach higher levels of success—without all the stress
Warning: This is not another stress management book. It's not about finding time to relax. It's about cultivating resilience—the ability to negotiate the rapids of life without being swept away. It's about reprogramming your emotional responses to high-pressure situations and breaking the self-defeating habits that do nothing but increase your levels of stress. In this book you'll find case studies and day-to-day techniques to help you readjust your attitude from the moment you wake up. You are not genetically programmed to experience stress. You have a choice. You can make your success the hard way—or you can Work Without Stress.
