Stress, Death And David Key…

Stress, Death And David Key…

The statistics don’t lie.

Stress, and the illnesses it contributes to, is one of the biggest killers in the world today.

Lives are cut shorter than they should be…

Families robbed of loves ones far earlier than necessary…

Grave visits more painful than if someone had died at a ripe old age…

The saddest part?

It’s avoidable.

We live a world of high pressure and high stakes.

Pressure to be the best employee or business…

…the best parent…

…the best partner…

Pressure around deadlines…

Multi tasking…

Not letting others down…

For many of us, it feels like we’re on a stress rollercoaster.

One day things are OK…

The next…

We’re dipping at a rapid pace and trying to hold things together.

And it’s this consistent, low level stress we experience in todays society that’s killing us.

Why?

Because we’re not wired to handle this kind of stress.

When you really think about it, stress is the “Fight Or Flight” response being triggered.

It is an evolutionary response from caveman times designed to get you to run away, or fight, the immediate danger before you.

Your body would release adrenalin and cortisol into your blood stream designed to make you momentarily faster and stronger in order to escape or fight the immediate danger.

And it was during this fight or flight that the adrenalin and cortisol would get used up.

Which is a very good thing, because having excess adrenalin and cortisol in your blood stream is detrimental to the human body.

It kind of cannibalises it.

Eats away at the organs and tissues and other areas important to it.

And this is where the problem is…

Stress is designed to get used up.

It’s not supposed to remain present in the body.

It should appear, because of a genuine threat to life…

…and then be eliminated during the running away or battle with that threat.

These days, thankfully, we don’t have genuine threats to life like sabre toothed tigers or an enemy tribe.

In some ways, what we have, is worse.

We have a constant dripping tap of stress due to the high pressure society we live in.

That adrenalin and cortisol – it’s not getting used up.

Instead, it accumulates.

One days stress rolls into the next…

…and the next…

…and the next.

And because it’s often low level stress, like traffic jams or anger at your partner for leaving the toilet seat up, we often don’t realise it’s accumulating.

Sure, we’d know about stress if we lost a job or a loved one.

But, this low level background stress, we almost just see it as “how things are”.

Not realising that our reactions to our environment, through accumulation, are slowly cannibalising our bodies and can lead us to that early grave so many of us fear.

We wake up in the morning and then…

We’re late out the door to work because the kids are struggling to motivate themselves.

Drip…

We arrive at work and see a demanding email from a colleague who has pushed a deadline forward, trying to make their life easier but making ours a nightmare.

Drip…

At lunchtime someone barges into us without saying sorry…

The queue at the coffee shop takes forever…
A text from an elderly parent winds us up…

Drip…

Drip…

Drip…

Throughout the day, if we’re not careful, we can be victims to these little bumps of adrenalin and cortisol and other neurochemical nasties that aren’t doing us any good.

And certainly won’t do our families good if we’re robbed from them too early due to the one of the many common stress related illnesses.

It’s scary.

And if you’re not scared, without putting too blunt a point on it, you should be.

Because the statistics don’t lie.

So…

What do you do about it?

This is part of a series of emails I’m sending out about how to live longer.

After all – you can’t live life once the lights go out.

So who wants them going out early!

In two days time I’ll send you two ways you can handle stress that don’t cost a penny and are easy to do.

I dearly want to help you get a handle on this because not doing so can make everyday life a chore and, longer term, the consequences can be fatal.

The information I’ll share with you can be easily passed on to your loved ones so you can help them, for the rest of their life, too.

Let’s stop being victims to our evolutionary wiring and instead take back control so that we don’t have to experience the pain and suffering that so many do when this slow drip of energy sapping chemicals eats away at us.

Between now and then, start to notice how easily you can be triggered to feel stress in every day situations.

Anger…

Anxiety…

Fear…

Guilt…

Pressure…

They’re all triggering that drip into your system.

I’m going to help you get a handle on it.

It’s time to take control of your future back!

Speak to you on (Two days time)

  • Having attended David's course and then had some one to one sessions with him my approach to my life has changed dramatically and improved. David has a very gentle and empathic way about him, yet managed to challenge my habitual way of being and thinking. As a result of our time together I now practice his "way of being" and I truly find that I am getting far better results in all of the relationships that I encounter. My inner chatter is under control, most of the time, and I am learning to pause and push away harmful thinking . It's surprising how habitual thinking can do so much damage and how, once you really focus on what comes into your mind you start to realise that you can be bigger than your random thoughts. So David thank you for putting me on a better pathway. Looking forward to sharing another journey with the Auspicium family!

  • The course I attended with David Key was marvellous, every moment being filled with joy and laughter. David has a unique talent to teach, unlocking the full potential of every person he encounters. His course opened up an infinite number of ways for me to get the life I want, right now, today, and in the future. It made me realise that thought is fluid and that I can mould it the way I want to suit my day. I would highly recommend this course to anyone in search of a new professional career or for those who simply want a happier life. Thank You!

  • It took me about 5 years of 'dithering' before committing, and in that time I attended several introductory days from various training providers. David's accessible style and the unforced flow of the day is what persuaded me to choose his company. David provides a training model that helps you become your best self - as a student, as a practitioner, as a person. By 'best', I mean more open, less fearful, more confident, less judgemental - whether you attend the course to make a change personally or professionally, to build on existing success, or with no idea where it might go, simply because you are interested (that was me!) you will be impressed at what you are able to achieve with David's expert guidance showing you how to use your curiosity as a pathway to growth. In the first week following the course, I dealt with several potentially difficult situations both at work and home, coming from a changed perspective - resulting in no conflict, calmer colleagues, less stressed family. And this without actively using any techniques; the biggest change has been inside my own headspace. I can't wait to do the next course. Now that I know, unequivocally, the benefits to be had, I wish I had come down off the fence years ago! Added bonus, a bunch of fabulous new friends. And a final thought about cost; some of you reading this will be struggling to justify spending a chunk of hard earned money "just" for yourself. Well, I will be using these tools every day for the rest of my life - pennies a day investment! I am SO worth it. And so are you!

  • I first met David at an evening business club a couple of years ago. During his presentation something “clicked” with me and I felt compelled to further my understanding of NLP. I attended the Auspicium free trial day. My earlier feelings were confirmed. This guy knows what he’s talking about and has a passion for helping people. I duly signed up for the NLP and Hypnotherapy practitioner course. What a week. All in the class left in such high spirits with a very different outlook on life. Following on I have attended the NLP and Hypnotherapy Master Practitioner course. Again excellent. There was something about the Hypnotherapy element of the course that I loved so on to the Hypnotherapy Trainers Training (another absolutely brilliant week). All the courses that I have attended have been very well organised, have a great team of trainers and support volunteers. The documentation is well put together and the exercises are all structured to push yourself to show you have a grasp of the given subject. I now have a fantastic group of new friends who I have a deep link with. We still meet up when we can to catch up on what we are all doing. As of March this year I have been participating in the Auspicium Freedom Project. This is a yearlong “conversation” about the 3 Principles – Mind, Thought and Consciousness. It took me a while to “get” it but now just by “doing nothing” I find myself doing more with better results and no stress. There are no models or techniques to learn. We all have the Principles inside us. We just need to be woken up to how to use them. It’s a great journey that will take the rest of my life. David is a superb trainer and fully deserves all the praise he receives.

  • Before going on David’s Practitioner course, I thought I knew what I wanted, where I was headed and how I was going to get it. All I wanted an additional skill to add to my portfolio. I thought my life was in reasonably good order, nothing that needed fixing. I can sum up my experience of working with David in two words: life-changing. Instead of just learning a new skill, David encouraged us to apply his teaching, our learning, to ourselves. In a very safe environment, I gradually dropped the barriers I had painstakingly built up over a long time. This change happened very quickly and I continued growing as a person, studying 2 more courses with David and joining him on the Freedom project. Why David? He is disarmingly honest, genuine and engaging. He has a very broad knowledge of human behaviour and passes his knowledge on with grace. As a result of working with David, I have changed, and my life has changed. In myself I am very happy and contented person. My marriage is better and stronger. My business plans have taken a different route - one that is exciting and feels very right for me.
