How Successful People Deal with Stress Differently, Part 2:

Latest From Randi Glazer

Let’s continue with tips from successful entrepreneurs.

  1. Sevetri Wilson, CEO of Solid Ground Innovations says “Plan out your motivation so it’s there when you need it.”

Sevetri comments on the fact that she is single and thus finds that a source of daily inspiration is critical. She creates 30-90 day inspirational themes to help her through any day. She prefers to have a fixed, known, daily source of inspiration.

Sevetri recommends Strength for Every Moment by T.D. Jake, inspirational social media @drtiffanybrown and @joelosten, and participating in community projects.

  1. Jason Duff, founder and CEO of COMSTOR Outdoor, says, “Smile to boost your energy. It’s easy.”

Duff talks about a year of his life where he felt a loss of opportunities or reasons to smile. He lost a key mentor and his family members were dealing with health issues. After that year or personal experience with a lack of smiles, he firmly believes that smiling is the easiest, helpful thing anyone can do when life presents challenges.

Smiling has a positive effect on both the person smiling and those who see the smile. Smiles can even predict longevity! Smiles can also be a great indicator of how things are going. If you find yourself not smiling with others, it’s a reminder to check your gut or find ways to light that fire again.

  1. Aaron Steed, CEO of Meathead Movers agrees with Duff and advises, “Smile at the beginning of meetings.”

Aaron also believes that smiling is the simplest, easiest, and fastest way to deal with stress. He has actually asked his employees to hold him accountable for smiling. They are encouraged to call him out if they don’t see him smiling.  One study concluded that more than half the time, people smile back at a smile, spreading the wealth! When you’re in a meeting with a lot of people, your smile can be the catalyst for a positive feedback cycle because you will receive the smile when you see others smiling too.

These are definitely a few interesting tips to try.
