We all know stress is not good for you or anyone else for that matter. But what if you could use it for your benefit? What if stress were your friend? If you could harness the energy that comes from the nervous knot in your stomach, you might be able to use it to your advantage when the competition heats up and you need that extra push towards achieving your goal. It’s not enough to look your best on an interview but being on your toes with a little self-directed stress might just do the trick. When you are fighting your best battle to compete in this job market, using stress may actually help you push towards your goals a bit faster.
Here are a few tips on how to use stress for success:
- Biting Your Nails is a Good Thing? Worry for the sake of worry really is a waste of your time. Whether you bite your nails, pull your hair or have developed any other weird habits, make sure you use your worry in a productive way. Worry can be used to calculate your next move so when you do find yourself worrying, have an end result that is productive other than stubby finger nails.
