Matti was a highly regarded managing director
of this large financial company; he was now
preparing for his speech in front of all the 600
people who were waiting in anticipation.
He had already started feeling the pressure
accumulating but kept on working hard to
present his best self ever.
On the day he was feeling very stressed and
at times panicky; but again he was determined
to give the perfect speech.
After the whole thing was finished he met with
his colleague who had given a similar speech
some time ago, and told him nervously.
“ I bet you felt similar tension during your
lecture and you were very pleased when it was
all over “.
” I didn’t actually. I always prepare myself
well in advance and I’ve learnt to keep my
thoughts under tight control “ he replied smiling.
Matti just realised that all the stress he was
feeling was only a repeated habitual mode his
subconscious mind was turning on automatically.
He then decided that from that moment on
he would be collected and calm and do his job
in a relaxed and efficient way.
