Stress is a mindset more than circumstances – Dailyleader

When I moved to New Orleans in 1998 to begin my seminary studies, new students were required to undergo a written psychological test and stress assessment. If your score was mid-range, that was considered normal, and a good thing. Score too high, you’d have to talk to a counselor prior to attending any classes. Score too low, you’d have to talk to a counselor because you were probably not telling the whole truth.

Key Takeaways:

  • The test required you to rate yourself by answering “yes” or “no” to situations that were ranked according to perceived stress
  • Why stress when you know everything is going to be fine?
  • If your score was mid-range, that was considered normal, and a good thing

“Sure, I had been through all those events in life, and events can cause stress, but how you deal with stress is very important.”
