Know something any great leader in history never did? They never complained about being overwhelmed. Somehow we have allowed this to be acceptable in society and so this post will help you with being overwhelmed but also with how to stop using language that doesn’t serve you.
Why You Should Never Complain About Being Overwhelmed
Telling people you are overwhelmed does not serve you, so why say it? Here is the reality. Most people just sit and stare at their results in life and complain and say they need more money, etc., when it is really your habits that have caused the results in your life. However, do you know what caused your habits? Your mindset. And do you know what caused your mindset? Your VOCABULARY.
So you see, complaining about being overwhelmed will set your mindset in a certain way that will dictate your habits and then your results to justify the fact that indeed you ARE overwhelmed and overwhelmed people are unable to get good results. How many just thought of other areas in life where you might use non-serving language? Watch that language and what comes out of your mouth, it literally is forming your experience and your results!
Changing ALL of your results…. by using your tongue
I believe that it is NOT the actual being overwhelmed that is the worst, it’s the constant SAYING that you are that is. STOP SAYING NON-SERVING STATEMENTS and declarations!
Understand that you never hear a great leader moan and whine about being overwhelmed so WHY SHOULD YOU? This may sound a little harsh but jeez louise, someone has to say it.
So the very, very first step in no longer being overwhelmed is to STOP saying it. Do you know what overwhelmed really comes from? It comes from the competitive mindset. When you are on the creative plane you don’t need to think this way.
“When you get out of the competitive mind you will understand that you never need to act hastily. No one else is going to beat you to the thing you want to do; there is enough for all. If one space is taken, another and a better one will be opened for you a little farther on; there is plenty of time.”
So, the fact that you missed one email or webinar is NOT A BIG DEAL.
OK, so you stopped saying it, How to be more productive
I am going to take your word that you are vowing never to use such weak, non-serving words and discuss you being overwhelmed so now I can offer you the ultimate solution to stop the overwhelm and start moving into super production. The key is one word, ROUTINE. Your daily routine will crush any overwhelm and can make or break all of your results.
Here’s to YOU using only POWERFUL, SERVING vocabulary from here on out!
