Pressure Pressure comes from without; a challenge in the form of a project or a situation It stimulates so that we can accomplish more than what at first seems possible. Stress Stress comes from within; it is the pressure that we put on ourselves. This leads to frustration or even a sense of hopelessness. Pressure motivates, stress drains and smothers.
