Busting Through Overwhelm


Do You Find Yourself In A Constant State Of Overwhelm?


Almost every person on this great earth at this time is sensing some kind of overwhelming feeling in their live about to much to get done and no time to do it.

Can you relate?

How has that been treating you? Helping you along on your journey towards your dreams and desires in your business and life?

What if… “It didn’t need to be that way?”

What if… “Overwhelm was not even about getting things done or not?”

What if… “It was more about how you be, than what you do?”

Busting through your overwhelm can be done with just a few simple things that you can fit right into your day.

Here are 5 simple tips for busting the overwhelm in your life today:

  1. Breath… Most people these days are in a state of constant anxiety and fear. This is one of the factors that can lead you to a state of overwhelm. The fact that this happens is due to our lack of truly breathing. Yes, we do breath. We have to to survive… but these quick short breaths that we take do not do well for us in a state of overwhelm. Take time out of your day for even just a few minutes to breath deeply and feed your body and brain the oxygen that it is craving for.
  2. Talk… We live in a time where we have never been so connected to people through technology but at the same time, never been so disconnected from each other. When you get into this state of overwhelm sometimes you just need to talk with someone about it. Now don’t use this time to dump on people about your woe is me story like I explained in this post on Telling A New Story, go to them with some concrete things that you are struggling with and feeling and be open to the solutions they may tell you. Ideally this should be a mentor or coach that you speak with.
  3. Dump… If you are like most people these days, you have a lot of stuff floating around in your head. This can be a major factor in being in overwhelm. The next time you feel your head filling up with information and ideas, grab a note book and pen and write them down. Do a brain dump of your ideas and then let your head rest and be relieved of having to constantly think about them. This really helps to bust through overwhelm when you do it on a consistent basis.
  4. Play… When was the last time you just put all of the junk and stuff that we get mixed up in our adult lives aside and just played. Went to the park, grabbed a board game, played basketball in the driveway? Try it, it works! Most people have gotten so serious these days that they have forgotten how to play. Want to really kick this up a notch. Find yourself a young kid to play with. Feed of their imagination and just let it flow. Go with it. Busting through overwhelm will be yours!
  5. Move… How long do you think the average person spends sitting down in a day? Well according to this research in Briton, more than 14 hours!!! Can you believe it? No wonder so many people are feeling overwhelmed, they are just sitting their life away. Take some time, get up and move your body, dance, jump, get the energy flowing. If you have a job that requires you to sit for long hours take breaks and move yourself around. This is an amazing way to bust through your overwhelm.

There you have it, the Breath, Talk, Dump, Play, and Move combination that will leave your overwhelm in the dust and you moving forward on the journey towards the life of your dreams.

Telling A New Story


How Do You Tell Your Story?


We all have stories in our life about the journeys that we have been on in the past.

Have you ever thought about how you tell those stories to other people?

The impact that may have on their journey?

The stories in our lives come in many different shapes, types and sizes.

There are stories of Success, Heartbreak, Tragedy, Glory, and more…

all around the events that have happened in our past.

So I was talking with a friend a while back who shared a story with me about a tragic event that happened in their life.

It was one of those types of stories where while you are listening to it and at the end of it you are feeling sad for your friend.

Can you relate? It’s one of those stories that is filled with drama and trauma.

Anyway, after listening to this story from my friend. I was feeling really down and was like wow, that was some really terrible stuff that happened to you.

It got me to thinking, if this is how I feel about the story my friend is telling me, I wonder how other people are feeling after they hear it.

Even more curious was I about what my friend must be feeling reliving this story of their past over and over again.

There must be something better…

So I asked my friend… What if you stopped telling that version of your story and made a choice to tell something new?

What if inside your story was a gift that you could share with other people that would inspire them, lift them up, and encourage some of them that maybe listening to it that went through the same circumstances that they have hope for the future. They can overcome it.

Every story has two sides.

The story we tell is just the choice that we make.

For today, take a look at one of your stories that you’ve been telling other people about your tragedies that make people feel sorry for you…

and decide to change it and tell a new story of yourself to the world.

Bring out the gift that is inside that tragedy and hard times and tell a new story today.

You’ll be glad you did.

The Fallacy Of Patience


Is Patience Interrupting your Success?


How many times have you heard someone tell you…

“Just be patient.”

“Good things come to those who wait.”

What if those statements were just lies that feed into your ego designed to keep you stuck right where you are in your business and life?

Most people sit around waiting for life to happen to them and they tell themselves that its ok to do this because they are just being patient.

Why do people do this?

Don’t they realize that this could be the death of their business and what is keeping them stuck right where they are at.

Patience can hold you back from achieving your dreams and desires.

Now don’t get me wrong here… there are times when you certainly need to be patient, but that is not the point here.

The fact is that the universe doesn’t work that way. When you ask for something and truly believe it for yourself it is given to you instantly. The only thing that may take time is the time it takes for the universe to align itself to make it appear in your life.

“Ask and it will be given to you.”

“Everything you have ever desired is already inside you.”

I know, you think that it is things shouldn’t be that simple.

Well why does it need to be complicated?

If it’s so simple, why don’t very many people live in the joy and abundance of who they truly be in their business and life?

Here’s the secret tip that most people miss out on that is hidden within the space of time it takes to realize your every dream.

That is Desire, Belief, and Conviction.

Desire… is what you need to keep yourself motivated. To make things manefest faster in your life, increase your desire. Napolean Hill says that you need to have a Burning Desire in order to achieve all that you were born to be.

Belief… is what you need to keep yourself on track. There are many roads that can take you to where you want to go. Your belief will allow you to know if the road you are travelling is the one that will take you there. When the possibility of choosing a particular path or lane in your journey comes up, use your belief to measure whether to move down it or not.

Conviction… is that you will do what ever it takes to make your dreams, desires, and vision for your business and life come to be. I mean Do WHATEVER IT TAKES! Nothing will stop you from achieving what you have in your head to bring it into reality. Success is virtually guaranteed!

Desire, Belief, and Conviction…

The secret to overcoming your patience that is keeping you stuck in a rut and not moving forward towards your dreams.

So the next time some tells you to be patient, ask yourself…

“Is patience going to interrupt my success?”

Then choose the path, take action and move forward.

Your dreams are waiting for you.

Which will you choose?

Keep your dreams alive!

The Art Of Promotion


Do You Tell People About What You Do?


How many people have you met that struggle with telling you about what they do and what they have to offer?

Most people fail in their business because they don’t tell anyone about what they have for sale and why other people should purchase it from them.

It maybe because they think it makes them a pushy sales person or something like that…

Your Own Worst Critic


Do You Know Who Your Own Worst Critic Is?


Can you guess who that may be?

It’s a person that you look at every day in the mirror.

Yep, you guessed it.

It’s YOU!

You are your own worst critic.

Have you ever noticed how easy it is to be hard on yourself and tell yourself that you aren’t doing a good enough job in your business or that you should be further along that you are towards your dreams, goals, and desires?

How is that working for you?

Is it making your life full of ease, joy, and abundance?


Do you feel that it is holding you back from everything you have ever dreamed of?

For most people, this crap in their mind that they critisize themselves about totally holds them back from achieving everything they want in their business and in life.

It causes procrastination, stagnation, and lack of taking the required action on the things that they know will lead them to the success they deserve!

This kind of crap talk that you say to yourself does absolutely nothing towards achieving what you desire for your business.

But guess what?

No matter what you do in your business and life, from time to time this kind of thoughts are going to come up.

It is a matter of what you do with them rather than what they are that determines the next path on your journey to your success in your business.

You see, most people try to eliminate these thoughts completely from their life, but that usually just leads to more and more frustration and dissatisfaction that ends up having even more of your own worst critic come through your mind.

But, with each thought that you think, you have a choice to either believe it to be true for you or not.

As you move through the journey of your business towards your vision you have for yourself, these thoughts will come up.

And when they do…

STOP for a moment and ask yourself…

Is this truth for me?

If not… let it go!

and if it is truth in your business, then choose according what the next best action is to take and then go and do it.

You are in control of everything that happens in your life. It’s all a choice.

The next time you become your own worst critic, what will you choose?

Focus on the truth and it will set you free.

Be in allowance of where you are at this moment, and then choose for your future.

Pick A Lane


Which Lane Do You Pick?


One of the biggest problems that I see in most people on their journey with their business or life is them being so worried about the competition and what other people are doing.

Most people waste hours, days, weeks, months, and even years on not taking action because of fear of what other people are or are not doing.

I like to compare this to horses that are racing at the track.

When they are getting ready to race and go out to the starting line, their trainer and rider put the blinders on.

If they didn’t, they would be so distracted by the other people around them that they would not be able to stay in their own lane.

The blinders allow them to keep their head down and focus on the lane they are in, what is in front of them, and where they are going to.

So many people in business and life are distracted by the shiny objects of something better or the grass is greener syndrome.

Can you relate?

Do you know people who have lived their life this way?

Maybe you have experienced this in your past or are even experiencing it now.

Either way, there is a solution to this problem.

3 Steps to Pick a lane for your business and life:

  1. Decide what you truly desire to have for your business and live.
  2. Visualize the experience of already having everything you have desired. Feel that feeling.
  3. Get in your lane, put the blinders on, have your vision of the future in front of you, and just start moving forward.

It’s that simple.

From time to time you may get off track, but don’t worry, just re-focus yourself back into your lane and move ahead to the next step on your journey.

All great things that have been created in the reality of this world have come from people who pick a lane and go for it.

What lane are you running in today?

Is there more than one?

What would it take for you to pick just one and run with it for the next 30 days?

How would your life and business transform into something that you have always dreamed of?

The choice is yours.

Pick a lane and get started today.

Change Your Mind Change Your Life


Do You Know How Your Mind Controls Your Life?


Have you heard this expression before:

“The mind is a terrible thing… waste it!”

Do you agree?

Where you agree or not, when it comes to achieving all that you desire to have in your business and life… there are many reasons why you need to give up on the ‘terribleness’ of your mind and just dump your thinking into the garbage. Get rid of your stinking thinking and let your true self shine through.

It is this stinking thinking that can keep most people stuck in the rut of their mind and never realize their dreams and desires on this planet that have been given to them as gifts to pursue.

So where does this kind of mind that we should so gratefully waste come from?

There are 3 places that are key to creating our mind and thinking in that way which keeps us stuck:

  1. Environment – The place in which we hang out and spend most of our time.
  2. Information – The media that we feed our mind with on a daily basis.
  3. Relationships – The people that we spend most of our time with.

What are you feeding your mind these days?

Is it creating the live that you truly desire?

Here are 3 things you can do to change your mind and your life:

  1. Change your environment. This works best if you work at home. Change your location. Get out of your office. Work outside. Go to the library. Get out of the same old place in which you always work.
  2. Change your input. Make a conscious decision to put aside the newspaper, television news, radio, and other negative info channels that you have pumping into your mind. Add in some motivational audios, watch some inspiring movies, listen to meditative music. When you are on budget, go for one of the best studio headphones under 200. This one thing alone can totally transform your life.
  3. Change who you spend most of your time with. I’ve mentioned this before and you can find evidence of it in your life and the life of others around you… you are the average of the 5 people that you spend the most time with. If your are stuck in a rut and looking to get out, consider the people that you are spending most of your time with and make a change.

Those are some simple steps you can do to change your mind and not have so much of it to waste.

Change your mind, change your life.

It’s up to you.

What will you choose?

How To Decide


Do You Let Decisions In Your Life Stop You From Taking Action?


Most people let the decisions about whether to do something or not do it consume them and stop them from taking action.

Can you relate?

What they really need to do is as soon as something that requires a decision shows up. take action!

Everyone has had great ideas at one time in their lives and if you are reading this post, they you most likely have had many.

You know the kind I am talking about, big visions for your family, your future, your legacy. Your dreams and desires for something greater than your current situation and circumstances.

The kind of things that can drive you forward to take action and do whatever it takes to make it happen!

So they why instead of doing something with the ideas that show up in peoples lives, do most people do nothing at all?

Even worse, they let this lack of decision making totally consume them and lead them to a life filled with regret!

Maybe they have had experience where they have taken action and nothing changed in their life.

That can be the case as all actions are not always the right actions.

They way to get what you want in your life is to choose the actions that support your dreams, desires, goals, and intentions.

The Simple Formula For Living The Life Of Your Dreams!

Here is is:

  1. Have Faith
  2. Trust In Your Knowing
  3. Get Comfortable with Un-Comfortable
  4. Stretch Yourself Beyond Your Comfortzone
  5. Don’t Be Attached To The Outcome

With this simple 5 step formula, why is it so hard for most people to get out of their own way and do the things that they know will move them towards the life of their dreams?

A mentor of mine used to always say…

“You don’t have to get it right, you just have to get it going.”

It is the perfectionist attitude that we must know exactly what to do before we do it that keeps most people from moving forward towards their dream life.

What if you gave that all up?

Even just for 1 day?

How would your life and business transform?

Is it worth taking a chance on it?

How to decide is a choice to take action on that which you know you need to do.

What will do today to take action on something that you know will move you closer to your dreams and desires in your life and business?

Just Frikin’ Getter Done!
