How to Reduce Stress – Flow Like Water

Today’s advice is very “Bruce Lee-like”, so be ready for some Taoist material.

As you can tell from the name of the video, it is about how to reduce stress. And, what I found in my personal life and really, where I drew this from, is that the most helpful way, the easiest and simplest way I have been able to deal with stress is to behave like water

You need to constantly FLOW.

How to Reduce Stress? – Flow Around Obstacles

Think about water flowing down the stream. Now imagine this huge rock in the middle of the stream. The water doesn’t stop in front of the rock asking: “Hey rock, why are you bothering me? Ok then, I’ll wait until you move rock.”

Does the water have any REACTION to the rock? No, it just flows around. That is what YOU need to do in life.

Every obstacle innately is an opportunity for you to GROW. That is what that rock is doing. It is allowing the stream to grow in the diversity of where it is flowing because it has to flow around the rock.

Similar to your life, if a rock comes in the middle of YOUR stream, it is going to challenge you to find those NEW paths, which are going to EXPAND you as a person.

It is going to grow your awareness and it will most likely make you discover new things. Those things will take you to even greater heights than you thought your first path was going to take you.

So, it’s a very quick hitting advice. I am just encouraging you to flow when obstacles come into your awareness because one thing you can be sure of is that you’ll ALWAYS have obstacles.

Another thing you can be sure of is that when you flow around these obstacles as your DEFAULT reaction to them, your life is going to get just easier and easier.

Don’t confront those obstacles with ego reaction, anger, resentment or any of those things. It would be equivalent to the water standing there, tapping its foot waiting for the rock to move, which it is NOT going to do!

The less time you spend in that state and the quicker you take evasive maneuvers, the quicker you can make that transition, the more effortless your life is, the happier and more joyous your life is, and the more you can achieve in a shorter amount of time.
