Dealing with Struggle and Overwhelm in Your Life

worry1 So many directions, so many decisions, so little time…

Does this sound like you?

  • a constant weight on your shoulders
  • lost in the crowd
  • avoid making decisions when you’re not sure of what to do
  • protect yourself so others won’t take advantage of or run over you
  • it seems that if you don’t fight for yourself, you won’t get what you want or need

You are not alone.  It seems that life these days is more chaotic than ever!  You are overloaded with information, “helpful” advice and a plethora of choices.  And to make things more interesting, just when you get used to something – it changes!

You’re distracted and pulled in so many directions.  You have to think quickly and make fast decisions. You have difficulty balancing work, life, family, friends and personal enjoyment.  You are constantly on the run, feeling pressure from every angle.

When you put all of those factors together it’s only a matter of time before opportunities pass you by, you start to believe that you’re not living up to your fullest potential or, worse, you feel trapped by your circumstances.  No wonder you are constantly irritated and in conflict with others – and yourself!

Like so many others, are you simply wanting to….

  • have a fun and vibrant life
  • improve and enhance your important connections
  • live with a greater sense of personal fulfillment

If you are struggling with stringing coherent thoughts together, it may be time to look into getting some support.  The support you seek can be your significant other, a trusted friend or even a personal life coach.

A wise first action to take is to admit to yourself that you would benefit from releasing the burdens that you are carrying.  You wouldn’t be barking at your kids, the love of your life wouldn’t be so wary in approaching you and you’d feel happier inside.  These are all good indicators that you’d benefit from support.

A wise second action step is to start talking it out in your head.  Think about what you want to avoid or accomplish.  How you would like it to go?  See in your mind’s eye what the ideal final outcome would look, sound and even feel like.  Give yourself some devoted time to really think it out.

After you’ve taken these action steps, your thoughts have become more settled and more coherent.  Now make a choice as to whom else to talk to.  You may start with your significant other, move onto a trusted friend and then seek the guidance of a personal life coach.  There’s no need to rush.  Simply start going in the direction you wish to go.

Your loved one knows you and wants you to be happy.  Advice received will be supportive and loving.  Your trusted friend cares about you and wants to see you succeed.  Advice received will be fairly straightforward and as helpful as he or she can be.  Personal life coaches are objective and understanding.   They’ve helped others in similar situations achieve successful and satisfying outcomes and are prepared to do the same for you.  Make a choice.  Ideally, choose all three.

Get it sorted out in your head first and then check that against what others share with you.  Keep your end goal in mind and sense in your gut the next right action step to take.

You can do it.

I believe in you.

Cheers to your success.
