Working from home is sort of like Charles Dickens’ A Tale of Two Cities – it can be the best of times, and it can be the worst of times. At the best of times, being a work-at-home professional is empowering, liberating, profitable, and stressful. At the worst of times, working at home is anxiety-ridden, stifling, and stressful. Notice a common denominator?
Recently I discussed the foundation of all stress, mood and attitude issues is your “Internal Critic,” that little voice in your head that you listen to hundreds of times each day. Sadly, most of us allow negative, self-defeating, distorted thoughts to interfere with our work every day—unless we become aware of our thinking habits and take charge of them.
The negative messages that pass through your mind immediately lead to muscle tightening, rapid breathing, and perspiring. These physiological responses are perceived as “stress,” so the more we allow these self-limiting thoughts to continue unabated, the more stress we suffer.
Like NFL quarterbacks, all financial advisors face challenges, adversities and setbacks during their careers.
For advisors, the “Super Bowl” of challenges is dealing with your clients during turbulent markets and dramatic financial crises and maintaining an optimistic, positive mindset, throughout.
