ABSTRACT
The article presents the author's opinion on how people can avoid burnouts. Burnouts are rarely the result of some catastrophic event. They are rather cumulative, with just another small, harmless thing finally draining the last drop of energy and life out of a person, producing debilitating symptoms. People have a choice on how they respond to situations. Psychological stress in itself has no power over a person. It is not life's events, but how they react that determines if an event will have a positive or negative affect on their lives.
