Is overwhelm inevitable?

NO! (It sure seems like it though!!!)

Overwhelm is an emotion created by our thoughts.

There are some really common ones that we are believing are true. 


  • I don’t have enough time
  • I don’t know how
  • There’s too much to do
  • I’m not good enough

We wear ourselves out with these thoughts. Because FEELING overwhelmed is really tiring. It isn’t productive. It can kill our motivation.

Spending a lot of time in overwhelm is a dream killer, goal buster and self-care saboteur. Believe me I know!!!

When we keep believing those (see above) types of thoughts, this happens:

  • We don’t spend time where it is important to our goals
  • We spin in confusion
  • We start with the easy tasks instead of the important knees
  • THEN we start believing that our goals are not possible.

There is only one way to solve this problem.

Managing your mind at a level that is so powerful that you learn to call your mind’s bluff every time you hear that crappy voice:

  • You’ll never get there
  • That will take to long
  • You need to pull back 

You’ll start saying things like:

  • I am taking these 3 steps this months towards this goal NO MATTER WHAT
  • I am committed.
  • I’m learning how to grow my business.
  • I have everything I need.
  • My business is working.

This is the best news ever. NOTHING has to change, except your mind. 


1. Watch for the crappy/innocent thinking that makes you feel overwhelmed. 

2. Take a breath and shift to a better thought. 

3. Start watching your energy change.

4. Rinse and repeat.

Overwhelm is normal, but it is just a set of emotions. Our thoughts create those emotions. You’re in control EVERY SINGLE TIME.
