Are you feeling overwhelmed? Do you have too many things to do and you feel tired? Feeling Overwhelmed slows down your business progress and prevent you from reaching your goal.
People who start a business usually get overwhelmed quickly. There are many things to learn and many things to do to make the business work. I am not writing here only about the Entrepreneurs who create a business from scratch. Internet marketers, network marketers and anybody else who constantly learns and works on growing the business gets overwhelmed quickly.
I used to feel overwhelmed all the time. I thought that I have so many things to do so I felt tired before I even started to do anything. When I was feeling overwhelmed the only thing I wanted to think about is rests and relax. It just feels so good to stop thinking about business and life, stop worrying about the problems and for a while run away with the thoughts to a YouTube Video or PC Game. This is how I felt and this is exactly what I used to do when I was feeling overwhelmed. The result was that I got more problems, less money and the worse thing I felt even more overwhelmed! As you can imagine I got into “Escape Pattern“. The only thing that made me feel good was to turn on YouTube and to stop worrying about the future.
Just to let you know, this is the stupidest idea ever. If you got into the “Escape Pattern” I know it’s not easy to get out from it, but it’s possible.
Let’s say that you are a network marketer. You constantly learn new strategies and technics to grow your business. Then suddenly you are starting feeling overwhelmed. You might feel tired and overwhelmed not because you have a lot of tasks to do, but because you didn’t take action with the knowledge you learned. Many network marketers constantly learn new things about the business but they don’t use this knowledge. They don’t take action and this is the reason why they feel overwhelmed. Imagine a box where you put a lot of important notes. If you don’t take those notes to review them again and you don’t segregate those notes the box will get overloaded quickly.
My habit was to say “Later” to almost everything. When I felt tired or when I wanted to do a different thing than online promotion I used to say “Later”. As you can imagine, all the necessary work I supposed do never happen. When I realized that I have to finish previous 4 tasks to start a new one it was already too late because I felt overwhelmed when I started to think how much work need to be done. Well, this is one of the symptoms of the Loser Mentality. The word “Later” doesn’t bring you anything than feeling overwhelmed. It feels good and it’s easy to say “Later” but the consequences are terrible. The way to grow your business and to stop feeling overwhelmed while working on your business is to stop saying “Later”.
Another thing is to stop focusing on all the things you need to do. When we look at or hold a bad of sand it feels heavy, but when we hold 1 small piece of sand it’s weight is like nothing. Try to close your tasks one by one. Make a list of all the tasks and cover it my a paper or note. Then reveal tasks 1 by one so you won’t get overwhelmed by a number of tasks. If constantly look at all the tasks you will feel that you have too many things to do. Reveal your tasks one by one and you will see how fast you can finish it all.
One task doesn’t make you feel overwhelmed or even tired. If you finish the things you need to do one by one I promise that you can finish the whole list fast and you will feel amazing after you finish those tasks. The heavy stone will be gone from your shoulders and you will have more energy to do amazing things with your life or business.
Stop saying “Later”. Take Action and work on the tasks one by one.
This is how you can stop Feeling Overwhelmed right away.
