How to Deal with Overwhelm in Business
Question: I have too many ideas and feel like I am overloaded. Should I be taking action and implementing all that comes to my mind?
Lira: When you feel like you have too much to do and not enough time, ask yourself, what is the pay off of my overwhelm. The answer would be something like, "if I can't do all of it, I won't do any of it." Distractions are doing only one thing for you, keeping you stuck in where you are now. And, by now you would know about the fear of success. It is also called the fear of unknown. So when you start having too many ideas while working on one particular project, explain yourself, that you can handle the success that would follow the completion of your project. It's like you are healing your mind, telling it, it's ok to grow, to be bigger, to step into the unknown.
You are in charge of your mind. So use soothing and then commanding to get what you need out of it. Focus is essential for your success. So don't deviate, have faith in yourself.
