The type of person that would benefit fromthis kind of stress would have a competitive and ambitious personality, thestress acts as a trigger like a rush of adrenaline leading to increased energyand can be deemed as a positive experience.

 

A working professional should use stressfullperiods as a challenge, Certain challenges that we face in the work environmentcan be deemed stressful however without these challenges there is the risk ofboredom which in turn will lead to lower productivity.

 

Stress can cause us to think differently (outsideof the box), where we can come up creative solutions to problems and accomplishtasks more efficiently.

 

The key is to try and change the perception ofstress and adjust to it. Stress moves us forward. The more our mind can handlethe more we can become capable of handling which can assist with personalgrowth.
