Are you Overreacting to Circumstances?
his is a continuation of our series on achieving success. Many of us are plagued with habits that keep us from being the best that we can be in our job, our career, or in life. Say Hello,Wave Goodbye!™ is an innovative coaching approach that removes those destructive habits and allows you to move forward and gain success. This series of blogs addresses the 12 most common habits that hold you back. They are called Core Dynamics of Common Problems™, which are excerpted from my chapter in the book, Coaching for Success (2008). You’ll learn why you are stuck and how the removal of these dynamics will set you free to pursue your goals. Last time we covered Biasing Reality. This issue will cover Overreacting to Circumstances.
12. Overreacting to Circumstances
When this is present, we become overly disturbed or distressed by what happens to others or ourselves. It interferes with our ability to maintain a strong sense of who we are under extreme conditions. This limits our ability to see things clearly and make informed decisions. We jump to conclusions by making erroneous assumptions.
When this dynamic is removed, we feel a sense of balance or calmness, whether we are experiencing a joyful or painful event. This balance allows us to maintain perspective and not take things personally when business crises occur, allowing us to lead with resolve.
