One of the definitions of overwhelm is being buried or drowned beneath a huge mass.
My particular brand of overwhelm is more like … suffocating skin crawling madness. I used to be the mistress of overwhelm. The discomfort was intense and yet there was a rush involved with pulling off what felt impossible. It took years to get acquainted with the damage ripple caused by all of the needless stress.
The good news is you can learn to minimize this paralyzing feeling by facing what’s going on and taking action; like a gymnast on a balance beam, taking one step sure step after the other.
Sure steps with a Go … Be … Flow … attitude.
Most of the solopreneurs and entrepreneurs I play with are passionate, talented and risk averse people who are really good at what I like to call, connecting the dots. Their ability to coordinate ideas, people, places, projects and synergistic energy is astounding. Their keen sense of knowing combined with pure unbridled feeling manifests great opportunities.
These fine characteristics and what seem like unlimited opportunities can be distracting.
Because people of this caliber can do ANYTHING.
