How To Keep A Stress Free Environment For Personal Success

stressfreestudent How To Keep A Stress Free Environment For Personal Success
We all realize that stress is affecting everyone at all ages and stages of their lives. It is a known fact that a growing child, even in his mother's womb, can start getting affected by the stress his mother carries.

Then onwards, once the baby takes birth, the influx of his environment and all the messages he seems to get from around him,  the vibration and the energies that he is facing,  they all have an extreme influence on his personal stress levels. 

I have noticed that in a students life, peer pressure and environmental social structure, are the main determining factors in his personality development. 

So it is important that a student as he is growing, becomes aware on how to keep his environment stress free,  so that he can be able to perform at his ultimate levels, and can be heading towards a successful career option.

It is imperative for a student to have a stress free life. The youth of every country is responsible for the future of that nation,  which of course has a further global impact. Indirectly we can say that, the youth makes up for the fabric of the planet.

Career vs. Life Purpose

Jasmina-Desai-career-vs-life-purpose

After the yoga class during our sharing a few days ago, one of my friends said, “I am 55 years old and I am still not clear what my life purpose is? I know some people have a clear life purpose, but I am just not sure”. My two teenagers will be going off to the college in next few years, so I wanted to explore this topic myself.


I attended my daughter’s band concert last week. Listening to the music, I felt every instrument and every person in the band had a very important role to play, in making this beautiful music. In the same manner, I feel everyone has a purpose to their lives. We are parts of a whole. All beings on planet Earth have an important role to play, to make life on this planet beautiful and harmonious for all of us.   From my life experiences, I can differentiate a career and a life purpose as follows:


Career

  • Usually involves having a goal and the steps to reach this goal, such as getting good grades, getting a college education, a job and then climbing the corporate ladder.
  • Comes from your ego or personality and is rooted in “separation”. Usually, the person thinks only about their own advancement. There is competition with others. There is also a hierarchy with a few having power over others.
  • Is outwardly focused on materialistic success and can become a never ending thirst with no satisfaction.
  • One person gains at another’s expense such as getting a promotion.
  • The person’s actions are based on personal gain such as more money, fame or power.
  • Is sometimes not decided by you, but it may be in some instances decided by your family or the need to make money and provide for your family.
  • Most careers are stress producing. Working a job can feel very restrictive and not joyful at times. At times, it is not aligned with the person’s talents or strengths. Therefore, success in a career usually comes at a cost, such as physical or mental health challenges and/or tensions in relationships.
  • Is fear based and there is a fear of failure or losing the job or promotion.
  • Usually happens earlier in life and usually is person’s single focus.
  • Has an end. For example, when the person retires or gets fired.
