Do you feel pressure to get it “right?”

Recently, I was at a keynote event in Canada to share trauma-informed parenting techniques so that foster parents learned new ways to create a stable home environment and plant seeds for hopeful futures.

Even though I’ve given my “From Mad2Glad” presentation hundreds of times I felt pressure to get it right — as always, it felt like so much was at stake and I didn’t want to blow my chance at making a meaningful difference. So, I rehearsed every single line of my 60-minute talk in my hotel room and missed a chance to explore the beautiful mountains.

And I wondered, “Is this level of stress even helpful?”
“I’m doing this to myself…where does this pressure come from?”

But there is a level of pressure that just isn’t helpful. That makes us lose our Presence, waste Connection opportunities, and steals our Joy.

Fortunately, there is help.  Coaches and mentors who devote their careers to helping us complicated humans think about life more simply….
