Does the Overwhelm sometimes make you feel like giving up?
How do you know when you are thinking too big? Sometimes I feel like I want to change the world but find it difficult to sometimes change my own world! I get so overwhelmed about what I must achieve that I forget to just CHILL OUT or alternatively give up completely! so I go through periods of huge overwhelm! Can anyone relate?
I must say I have got a HELL of a lot better this year and just wanted to share what I found helped. So here goes…
The problem isn’t that people think too big; it’s that they fail to plan big. Dream as big as you want but don’t fail to create a plan to get there. If you don’t have action steps and deadlines in your calendar, you’re just wishing and dreaming and not doing. Strategize, structure, work, plan your goals and dreams. No goals, no growth.
Know the Worst Case Scenario isn’t Likely.
No great plan ever gets accomplished without a good amount of struggle. But people often think the struggle will be worse than it will be. So, if you fail, what’s the worst that can happen? You will be judged? They already do that. You’ll be broke? You’ve been there before. You’ll be sad? You’ve felt that before and moved through, too. Get over your fears and continue moving forward because life is also full of second chances. If obstacles come along, you will figure out a way to overcome them – you always have. You’re always stronger than you think when you’re fighting for a purpose.
Don’t let your current circumstances or competencies limit your vision for the future. Other people can help you grow and progress. They can strengthen your weaknesses. Always think TEAM! You need support to achieve anything significant in life. Your dream is only too big if you haven’t enrolled anyone else in achieving it.
Develop your skill set.
If you want to move forward with your dream, you must schedule your learning and growth. What is required to succeed at the next level? What do you need to know? Start learning. What do you need to be able to do? Start training. Create your own curriculum for learning and get it on the calendar.
It seriously takes constant self-development to achieve dreams If you’re not developing yourself to achieve your dream, then I guess you are… just a dreamer.
OH and watch this too!
