How To Stay Calm Under Pressure

Calmness always wins the day.

Being calm doesn’t mean that we can’t be passionate and express ourselves to others, it's just the style in which we do it.

I have always admired people for their calmness. These are people who focus on what they control and block all the other distractions from their mind. Like everything, it takes practice.

Calm people normally have great self-awareness of their abilities and confidence in their own competence to make the right decisions. Medical professionals are great examples of this. When faced with decisions and choices to be made along with prioritising where their time is best spent.

Remember it takes practice.

For me the art of calmness is knowing that you have to take responsibility and you are prepared to make decisions and be accountable for them.

There is no ‘them’ and ‘they’ to blame. So where do we start?

  • Practice not making judgements and assumptions too quickly. Take time to establish and weigh up the facts.

  • Know your own abilities and develop your self-esteem and confidence.

  • Always be prepared to reflect and learn from your experiences.

  • Relish pressure in the knowledge this is going to make you better at what you do.

Calmness is an essential ingredient, as who knows what is coming next.
