If you are one of the fortunate working individuals among us, congratulations; but all may not be well. Stress may be affecting your performance. However, the stress may not have anything to do with your career. Everything in the workplace may be a refuge. But if outside influences are beginning to encroach on your performance, it may be time to take some serious steps to handle personal issues before the career is in danger of being derailed. There is one situation that does not affect everyone. It is possible that others would consider themselves fortunate to share the circumstances you have, if not for the burden of stress. If you are burdened by difficulties with a structured settlement that is not contributing a sufficient amount, even when combined with your salary, to meet monthly obligations, nothing will affect work performance and personal well-being like a financial pinch. Fortunately, there are ways to confront and overcome the stress.
