10 Ways successful people stay calm




Last week I wrote the post „10 Things genuinely confident people do differently” (here) based on Dr. Travis Bradley’s article. This post was very popular so I thought that you might like another article of his.



Dr. Travis Bradberry is the award-winning co-author of the #1 bestselling book, Emotional Intelligence 2.0, and the cofounder of Talent Smart, the world’s leading provider of emotional intelligence tests and training, serving more than 75% of Fortune 500 companies. His bestselling books have been translated into 25 languages and are available in more than 150 countries. Dr. Bradberry has written for, or been covered by, Newsweek, BusinessWeek, Fortune, Forbes, Fast Company, Inc., USA Today, The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post, and The Harvard Business Review.


Below is the list of things successful people do to stay calm, and the original article you can read here:




As usual I am leaving it to your consideration.

Dr Travis Bradley wrote:

“While I’ve run across numerous effective strategies that successful people employ when faced with stress, what follows are ten of the best. Some of these strategies may seem obvious, but the real challenge lies in recognizing when you need to use them and having the wherewithal to actually do so in spite of your stress.”





  1. They appreciate what they have
  2. They avoid asking “What if?”
  3. They stay positive
  4. They disconnect
  5. They limit their caffeine intake
  6. They sleep
  7. They squash negative self-talk
  8. They reframe their perspective
  9. They breathe
  10. They use their support system
