Why Stress Isn’t Necessary

From Above the Law authored by Kara Loewentheil:

“Have you ever said or thought any of the following:

  • If I’m not stressed-out about failing, I won’t do a good job.
  • I work best under pressure.
  • If I didn’t have stressful deadlines I’d never get anything done.

If you have, you’re not alone. One of the most pernicious myths that lawyers believe about themselves is that they “work best under pressure.” All my clients sign-up with me because they want to be less stressed, but when it comes down to it, and we start looking at their thoughts, it turns out they subconsciously think stress is serving them – and is actually necessary for them to achieve their goals.

You can see how this creates a problem. You feel stressed. You want to feel less stressed. But if your brain subconsciously believes the stress is necessary, it’s not going to give it up. The good news is that your brain is wrong. Stress actually isn’t necessary, and I’m going to show you why.”
