Andy has a reputation for being too serious, and never smiling. As a dedicated sportsman it's understandable that he has to focus, so he can't be expected to be cracking jokes. John McEnroe has changed from someone who argued furiously over every point with the line judges and the chair umpire, to sharing a great sense of humour as a commentator. It has to be easier to be funny when the pressure to win is removed.
As it's unlikely that you're living with the pressure of being a world class sports person, I hope you look for every opportunity to laugh, because it's an excellent way to release stress. When you see the 2 kittens above, are you the serious one, or the one who is laughing?
Everything you do seems twice as difficult, and takes twice as long if you put unnecessary pressure on yourself. Do you remember the last time you really let go, and laughed without reservation? It's true that time flies when you're having fun, and it makes life far more enjoyable - which it is meant to be ...
If you find it hard to laugh because you feel weighed down by a stressful issue, then I recommend that you try the ZPoint Process. It may seem impossible to imagine, because every issue is serious, but I've taken people from tears to laughter. No matter how bad you feel at the beginning of the session, you will always feel lighter and happier afterwards, and you might even experience giggles erupting as the original upset loses any hold over you.
If you want to know what the relief of saying goodbye to your stress feels like - Please get in touch. You can try a free ZPoint session recording with the short and simple Kindle guide - Click the picture of the Kindle on the right.
Knowing how good ZPoint makes you feel confirms for me that this is the perfect solution for any situation. I always choose to laugh over being serious - and there really is a choice!
