An Effective Action Plan for When You Feel Overwhelmed

You probably can’t find anyone over the age of 10 that hasn’t felt overwhelmed at some point. It takes more to overwhelm some people than others, but the feeling and the impact are the same.

It can be very challenging to focus on solutions and take the necessary steps to resolve the situation. However, focus and action can ultimately solve most negative situations in your life. Many of us are prone to worrying and then doing silly things to make ourselves feel better. This doesn’t solve the issue. It just avoids it temporarily.

 Take these steps to create a plan and go from feeling overwhelmed to feeling peaceful again:

 

  1. Identify what is under your control. There’s little point to worrying about those things outside your locus of control. Determine what you can control and place your attention there.

  2. Focus on solutions. Now that you know what you can and can’t change, keep your attention on finding a solution. Obsessing over the problem...

Manifesting Wealth and Abundance

Manifesting wealth and abundance begins from within. You have to appreciate what you have in your life already – your family, friends, and job – instead of focusing on what you wish you had.


Often people waste precious time thinking about what they don’t have. They start to believe their lives will improve if only they had more money, or more friends, or more gadgets. They think about what’s lacking instead of the abundance that is already overflowing into their life.

 

Positive Thinking Invites Abundance

 

If you appreciate what you have, you’ll be inspired to take the necessary actions to bring more of what you want into your life. From a practical point of view, this all starts with living happily with what you have.

 

Now at first, this may sound rather counterproductive, but living happily with what you have doesn’t mean you’re completely satisfied and fulfilled. It simply means that you appreciate all the good parts of...

Take Advantage of Your Imagination and Boost Your Creativity

creativity imagination Sep 12, 2021

You are creative, even if you’ve failed to realize it. In fact, you can’t fail to create. You created the life you’re living right now, even if you don’t appreciate it very much!


 However, unless you’ve tried to maximize your creativity, you’ve only been operating at half-throttle. It’s possible to be much more creative than you have been in the past. Being able to access your imagination and then use it to find creative solutions will make life easier, more enjoyable, and bring you greater fulfillment.

 

Enhance your ability to access your imagination with these strategies:

 

  1. Practice without distractions. Turn off the TV and dim the lights. Have a seat and close your eyes. Allow your mind to wander, but don’t fall asleep. Instead of trying to steer your thoughts, let them run wild. Practice being an observer instead of a director. Do this daily for 15-20 minutes.

    • Use all of your senses. You can do more than just...

The Bullet Journal: Your Secret Weapon for Excellent Time Management

goals journal lists Sep 08, 2021

 There are plenty of time-management and organization systems. But right now, there’s one organizational tool that’s very much “in vogue” and doing the rounds on Instagram and across productivity/self-improvement blogs. That tool is the bullet journal.

 The bullet journal is ideal for business professionals or anyone who just wants to make the most of their time.

 

What is a Bullet Journal?

 

A bullet journal is essentially a journal that you use to organize your to-do lists, as well as to keep other notes and a log of things that you’ve already done. You do this by using bulleted items, which is where the name comes from.

 

So, it’s just a book of lists then?

 

Well kind of, but it’s also a fair bit more attractive and useful than a book of lists. To better understand, consider the components of a typical bullet journal and how you might go about setting one up for yourself.

Why Taking Action is the Thing That Matters

action behavior beliefs values Sep 07, 2021

Do you spend all of your free time reading and gathering information? Are you a self-help junkie that never seems to make any meaningful progress in your life? Are you trying to take your life to the next level by using the power of your mind alone?

 

How is that working for you?

 

Nothing changes until your behavior changes. Sure, you might feel better about your life after all of your mental gymnastics, but is anything actually happening in your life from all of these intellectual efforts?

 

Take action and watch your life change before your eyes!

 

Consider these ideas:

 

  1. You have to do something for something to happen. Nothing happens until you act. You can’t wish or visualize your way to a plate of food, a fancy car, the partner or your dreams, or a successful business. Those things might make it easier for you to act, but you must still take action of some kind.

  •  Unless you’re telekinetic, you can’t even make a paperclip...

How to Double Your Creativity

 Who wouldn’t like to be more creative? You might think you have no creativity at all, but that’s untrue. You’re incredibly creative! You created the life you have, even if it was unintentional. Being creative in a more intentional manner is something that most would find beneficial.

 Learn these strategies to release and enhance your creativity:

  1.  Try new things. Our thoughts and decisions are largely based on our experiences. Start trying new things.
  • For example, if you go skydiving or take a nude painting class for the first time, you’re bound to have a new perspective on the world.
  1. Look to your past. When have you had your best ideas? John Denver stated that he wrote his best songs after performing a stimulating outdoor activity, such as downhill skiing or flying his airplane.
  • It’s common to experience high levels of creativity when the mind is partially engaged, but still free to roam. Situations like mowing the grass or taking...

Essential Strategies to Overcome Your 3-Day Monk Challenges

Essential Strategies to Overcome Your 3-Day Monk Challenges

 

The term ‘3-day monk’ has come to mean someone that gets obsessed with something in the short-term, but quickly loses interest. The object of our high-level of interest might be our new blog, learning an instrument or language, or some new hobby.

 

We genuinely have a lot of interest out of the gate, but yet get little accomplished. You can’t get in great shape by exercising for 5 days. You also can’t write a book or learn to speak Russian in a similar amount of time.

 

If you want to make meaningful progress with something, it’s important to show up every day. You don’t have to spend hours each day, but you need to put forth some effort on a consistent basis.

 

These ideas will make it easier to beat the 3-day monk challenge:

 

  1. Start with something you genuinely enjoy. These are voluntary activities, so choose something that you love to do. It’s far...

Bedtime Habits of High Achievers

high achievers resilience Mar 30, 2021

There’s no doubt that your habits are excellent predictors of your current and future circumstances. The things you do each day matter in a big way. Slightly overeating each day is vastly different from slightly undereating each day when you consider the results months down the road. Save a little each day or spend a little more each day. Consider the difference.

 Most people have a morning routine, but fewer have an evening routine. You’re not in a rush at night, so use the time to the best of your ability. A few effective evening habits can pay off in a big way in the future.

 Develop a nighttime routine that enhances your life:

 

  1. Plan the following day. Avoid going to bed without a concrete idea of how you’ll spend the next day. Just a list of three things you’d like to accomplish the next day can be a good start. When you wake up in the morning, you won’t have to think about what you should do first. You’ll already have a...

Retake the lead character in your life

rewrite your story Mar 28, 2021

Are you playing an EXTRA or the MAIN CHARACTER in YOUR LIFE? 

What do I mean by that? 

YOU write your story. You choose what role you play in that story. Everyone is born with a divine birthright, and so many people forget, deny, or give away their birthright. When this happens you step out the main character role in your life and settle to be a side character or an extra. I’m calling you to reclaim your divine birthright and stake your claim as firstborn of the universe. 

Do these sound like you: 

  1. You don’t believe that “happily ever after…” is in the cards for you. 
  2. It’s only a matter of time before everything blows up in your life. 
  3. Things happen TO you instead of FOR you. 
  4. Some people seem like they are born to shine. Other people. You are not so lucky. 
  5. You try to form a “bubble” around yourself keeping out the bad and keeping in the good. 
  6. You feel like you have no control over how...
