Are you feeling pressure in your everyday life?  On the job. . .in your finances. . .at home either in your role as a spouse or a parent?

You want to get ahead but sometimes the pressure is almost overbearing.

Peter Marshal, a former Chaplain of the United States Senate, once told the Lord:

“When we long for life without difficulties, remind us that oaks grow strong in contrary winds and diamonds are made under pressure.”

Perhaps, we need to catch a visual of ourselves becoming like the Hope diamond. . .the most famous of all precious stones.

There seems to be four main causes of pressure. . .whether generated externally or internally.

First, we get overloaded with more to do than the hours of the day will allow us to complete.

Second, we allow our emotions to create worry, anxiety and frustration. . .which drains us emotionally and physically as well.

Third, we begin to play worst case scenarios in our minds . . . imaging the worst things that could possible happen. . .if something is not completed or doesn’t happen.

If you have never dialed into our daily Rich Thoughts For Breakfast 13 minute conference call. . . today you can. We are playing the #1 listened-to-program each week.

If it isn’t obvious that we’re living in the end-times. . .just read the headlines in your local newspaper or listen to your favorite broadcast, cable or internet news source.

There’s an old Ray Charles song entitled “Born to Lose.”  One refrain of the song says:  Born to lose, I've lived my life in vain; every dream has only brought me pain.”

The news media has adopted that philosophy and terminology that bad news sells a lot more than good news. The worse the news … the better in their opinion.  They produce a constant stream of bad news for you to wallow in.

We’re not minimizing the troubles in the world. . .they are plentiful. . .but we don’t need to get caught in despair over what’s happening around us and to us.

There’s still a lot to be thankful for … and a lot of very good people doing miraculous things to change people’s lives for the better.

Here are seven ways to overcome troubled times.
