Sumner DavenportHi, my name is Sumner, one of the authors in this timely book.Don’t let the smile on my face fool you –
I am just like you – attempting to figure out how to balance all of my obligations, deal with frustrations and setbacks, health worries, bills to pay, relationships, and all the other everyday stresses …… and desiring to be happy at the same time.

Stress is a constant in our lives, such a constant that we actually don’t realize we are under stress, we think it’s “just part of life.”

Traffic jams, deadlines, eating on the run, we stress when we have bills to pay, job changes, endless chores and too many errands. Our job has stress, not having a job has stress, it’s stressful maintaining your weight, having a relationship is stressful, not being in a relationship is stressful, family responsibilities are stress, and all those other demands on you can be huge amounts of stress. Not to mention those people who really get on your nerves. Our energy is drained, and we feel helpless. Health surveys report that over 70% of people feel stress everyday. You are not alone.

But is there anything that can be done? YES, there is!!!

Just in time for your everyday Stress!

Just like you, I needed answers. I certainly didn’t have them all, in fact, on some days I didn’t think I had even one. I searched…. listened to experts, created polls and surveys, talked to strangers – people like you and me. This book is more than just my words or experience, it is a joint effort of several authors who share their expert advice and experience PLUS stories and testimonials from individuals interviewed during my extensive search for solutions to teach stress who’s the boss.

#1 – Find ONE person that you are totally safe with and can vent to.
This person is to LISTEN only and not tell you how to fix it (until you ask) and not judge you, and not throw your words back at you, and not join in on the complaining.

Select this person carefully. The purpose is to get it out of your system with someone who will HEAR you so you can have a more clear space to see a solution. Sometimes you can find this supportive person in a close friend, and sometimes you need a coach or counselor to be that impartial listener.

#2 – Surround yourself with loving and supportive friends.

“Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions.
Small people always do that,
but the really great people make you feel that you too can become great.”
~ Mark Twain ~

One day while having coffee with a young lady she was talking about what she desired to have in her life. She went on to say, that she was telling her friends what was on her List and how she was following The Plan, “because they were 100% supportive in her having what she desired.” Just then two of her well-meaning friends happened by the table. The young lady I was talking with spoke to her friends and asked them to tell me how they were 100% supportive of her desires. They both said “Yes, of course.” Then one friend went on to say, “Well, in order for her to reallyhave what she desires, she has to do this and that…” and then the other friend chimed in and said “And she needs to change this and that or what she wants will never happen”. So her 100% supportive friends actually believed that she could only have her desires if she changed according to the way they believed. (This and that were specific examples relating to the young lady’s desires.)

Walt Disney wasn’t the typical Hollywood mogul. Instead of socializing with the “who’s who” of the Hollywood entertainment industry, he would stay home and have dinner with his wife, Lillian, and his daughters, Diane and Sharon. In fact, socializing was a bit boring to Walt Disney. The people that were close to Walt were those who lived with him and his ideas, or both.
