How To Be Adaptable - Rule4

Category:  Deepak Quotes

When old stresses are triggered, walk away.
How To Be Adaptable - Rule4

Top comments

  • I have found that living in the moment, and in the power of NOW keeps old stresses from coming into my life. And my reason for that is: I do not live in the past, nor do I live in the future. I live only in the moment. The past is dead to me, and I care not to predict the future. After meeting Dr. Chopra and Dr. David Simon several years ago (by CD, by the computer and by tapes), my life was changed forever. The rigid ways I learned to know from childhood were replaced by living in the moment, and my ego no longer rules my life. I totally walk away from negative energy that may come into my life. And living this way has kept my cancer in remission for ten years! Thank you, Dr. Chopra for changing my life! You and Dr. Simon (bless his soul) are my inspiration!

    Mariana Casillas Zuluaga // 2013-03-26 02:14:17 // //
  • Two words that always seems to be missing in recovery TALK is "self -regulation" Teaching this to yourself and owning it is what "walking the walk" is all about. 30 years in recovery.

    Doug Bartake // 2013-03-26 01:46:44 // //
  • Sounds relieving enough!

    Scott Mitchell // 2013-03-25 12:01:09 // //
  • A source of stress may trigger a bad response pattern. Walking away will allow time to properly handle any situation, as opposed to allowing old possibly, harmful behaviors to control you in the moment. Walk away, breathe, reconnect and think, then act.

    Sheila Lafleur // 2013-03-25 11:14:15 // //
  • thx for reminder

  • But what if you can't walk away?

    Rebecca K Clougher // 2013-03-24 21:16:55 // //
  • Hastly considered advises rarely become slogans rather than platitudes. It's always easier to walk away than look it in the eye, whatever "it" is, so that hardly is the most creative way to get away with stress.. Besides, in a moment of stress, you're not always in a position to walk away. Sometimes you're back against the wall, and then what you do? Most walk-aways lead to dead ends, which lead right back to the problem.

    Jyrki Mattila Heyer // 2013-03-24 19:36:05 // //
  • This is nonsense? Stress is generally triggered by a problem. Solve it - don't walk away

  • Love it

    Judy Mills // 2013-03-24 15:42:29 // //
  • When the stress is triggered by the ill health of your dear ones ( cancer keeps taking turns in your family_-how do you walk away? Yes, if the stress is triggered by external means, by all means walk away!

    Jyoti Marwah // 2013-03-24 15:12:14 // //
  • Depending on what the stressor may be, I will either confront it and deal with it or just let it go.

    Lorie Ann Stoker // 2013-03-24 14:43:59 // //
  • Amitabh, Walking away is first recognizing the source of stress and then making an aware choice to act & feel in a different manner. It will seem strange to behave differently at first, but you will see the benefit of that choice. All is well. Love, Barbara

    Barbara Sackter // 2013-03-24 14:22:54 // //

  • building a rocket ship,LOL. my worst habit when overstressed is biting and picking at my nails. it started early in life so it's been hard to undo. taking note that when I feel compaelled to do this, its usually because I am in company of my enemies or someone who demands power over me. have tried to learn to love my enemies. it's best to avoid them . I'll just sit back passively and watch them abuse everyone else.

  • “I defined half-cannibals those who are eating meat” Adrian Ferent The top clerics, politicians… are half-cannibals. If you eat meat you are inferior! People who eat animals do not have compassion, love... All religions say fasting is good but I do not know any book to 'say' eating meat make you superior... Only animals eat other animals. High IQ link to being vegetarian Save the lambs! Each year before Easter Day are slaughter millions lambs around the world. Saving a number of lambs can stop some catastrophes around the world. For the majority love is only a feedback. On Easter Day the greed of half-cannibals Christians exceed the compassion and the love towards the innocent lambs(they will eat the lambs).Another proof that 98%(I calculated) of people are at animal level. http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/health/6180753.stm

    Jackie Mulligan // 2013-03-24 12:23:58 // //
  • Sometimes I cant walk away- work in a call center, stressors all around me. First i breathe, then recognize & acknowledge the stress I am feeling, making sure im not in danger. Then I try to m Notice the things/ factors- all of them. Sometimes this takes extra time because stress can cause shutdown, so I say " breathe, peace, open." As I run thru the factors I'm learning new things about my world, identifying reactions, taking note if there are things i need to do mow & later, & noticing regularly whatever comes up- while I notice & pay attention to what I CAN do- breathe, focus on my customer & how I can enhance their experience of the call. Gratefulness for the moment with all that is I realize Deepak thats a lot more complicated than your suggestion, but this has been a process that I have developed that works for me

    Jewelley Lumnz // 2013-03-24 12:23:04 // //

Rude people trigger me, one incident this week with a co worker, cannot walk away, and my male manager supported this rude male behavior. I am British, good manners were pounded into us kids and I like it and I think it goes far, but this society now endorses rudeness of all kinds.

And realized I've had PTSD since childhood.

  • The difficulty in following through on this suggestion is having an adequate alertness. Triggers are thoughts that have been coming around for a long ("old") thus it is difficult to recognize when they pop in for a visit. One of the best techniques I have heard of--and try to practice--is to recognize as soon as possible the negative feeling arising and tell myself, "I`m thinking."

  • Yep, don't give them your energy. If its a boss, however, you would be better off reconciling their bad behavior. If that doesn't work, stab them in the back or wrap them up in red tape, or leave for a better job and use someone else for a reference. Unfortunately, sometimes Axis of Weasel is the only thing we have to lean on because of how mean people can be.
