Stress Ball Dip

Stress Ball Dip

Posted by John in Articles

You will need:

One human brain

Harsh dose of reality

Unlimited drama

1000’s of Bills

Family issues

Career interferences

and whatever else you want to add in

Mix all of the above ingredients and combine that with an unpredictable income and your result, is an overwhelming life, with a ton curve balls.

Let’s face it, life is stressful.  We all have a million reasons, situations and excuses that stand in our way and truly test our ability to succeed.  It’s not a matter of ‘if’, but a matter of ‘when’.  So when life throws you a curve ball, what do you do?

I like to get lost in my job.  I’ve come to the realization that “I LOVE WHAT I DO” and Voicing is not only my job, but it’s one of my hobbies.  I am able to truly express through my characters all life’s stresses.  A form of “Multiple Personality” but I’m in full control.  If I’m in a bad mood, going into my studio and creating an adlib character who is angry, or sad or whatever I’m going through, is a great way for me to relieve stress.  I record them and the it allows me to a. Hear how messed up I am when I’m stressed out.  B. To create future characters that will make me money and get me work!

This doesn’t work for everyone – you have to recognize who you are and what can help you get your stress out.  Perhaps you’re a very physically angry or stressed person when you get stressed – YOUR BODY IS CRYING OUT TO YOU to get into a gym and/or kick boxing or some kind of high impact sport – so that you can truly deal and accept your stresses.

Then your goal is to take the time out you need for you to release, and now look for the light at the end of the tunnel.  I’ve been doing a lot of life coaching lately, and it’s important that we know how to keep sane, in a rather chaotic world.

Happy to be a lending ear

Until next time

All my best
