Getting this overwhelming feeling in business is not unusual. But if you’re experiencing stress all the time, it’s just not sustainable. Fortunately, there’s a simple way to reduce your stress and I’m going to share it with you in this video.
Stress happens all the time in business. It happens when you overcommit to a project, get a new customer, or open up a new location. Sometimes this stress can be fun. It’s exciting to see parts of your business develop.
But it’s not fun when there’s no end in sight — when you’re constantly being interrupted, or when there’s no time to breathe or think. When you’re experiencing stress all the time, you start feeling overworked, irritable, and drained. You need a pause button from all the overwhelming feelings.
Well, here’s a pause button for you. Stop saying “should”, or stop “should-ing” yourself. What I mean is, stop comparing yourself to where you think you SHOULD be.
The key thing that people often miss is how far they’ve come. We forget to look back on our accomplishments. Just look at the past year. Have you grown as a business owner? Have you grown personally? Have you learned? Have your skills gotten better? Has your leadership improved?
The answer to that is probably “yes”. When you look back with gratitude and appreciation, it will build you up. Those areas that you’ve improved in are proof that you’re getting better — even when it doesn’t seem like it.
Don’t let the things in front of you make you lose sight of what you’ve done. When you’re getting an overwhelming feeling in your business and experiencing stress that doesn’t go away, just look back and remember how much you’ve grown and how far you’ve come.
