Feeling Overwhelmed with Life

How many of you feel as though life is just one long roller coaster ride?

It may seem like a never-ending journey leaving you feeling unfulfilled, fustrated, angry, depressed, and discouraged, but I assure you that you can bring your life into balance by learning how to react to things better: Once you do the results you achieve will be so much better.

The important word here is “learning.” Like anything worth doing, achieving life balance will take practice, but you’ll also start feeling improvements almost straight away. You have the ability to change and evolve, at any age. So, no matter how long you’ve felt overwhelmed or out-of-sync with life, today you can take the first step to getting off the emotional rollercoaster.

Has a crisis sent you into a nose-dive? You have the power within you to overcome life’s challenges. For a period of my life, some time back, things were bad, real bad. Many of the circumstances I faced, I have little doubt would have crushed many. I don’t say this to boast, but to demonstrate that we each do have within us Deep within me I found the tools to take back control, focus my power, overcome life’s challenges in times of trouble, and celebrate every day in order to get the life that I wanted.

Through tragedy and failure I found transformation. If I can be of inspiration through my blogging and by providing encouragement to others from the lessons I’ve learnt then the journey I have experienced makes everything worthwhile. That has been my attitude, always believing in the big picture, always knowing there is something better waiting around the corner for me. Knowing whatever challenge I face, that’s not the end, I will get through and life will work out to the design I want.

We all face tough and difficult challenges in life. Some are difficult to overcome, especially when the odds are stacked against us. Going against the odds, is something we’re capable of doing. To overcome challenges you need to have that “never quit” “never give up” attitude in life. If you learn it, you’ll overcome most of what life throws at you.

You need to focus on how a positive mind-set can help you overcome life’s challenges. Don’t be one of those people in the world who cannot look past all the negative shit in their lives. If you cannot get past the negative and start looking at the positive than let me tell you that you will never be able to achieve your life dreams.

My secret weapon throughout my life, I have no doubts about, its my self confidence, my belief in myself and my capabilities. To have a positive outlook on life you have to have a healthy self-esteem and self confidence. So maybe it is time to work on that self-esteem of yours.

Writing this blog helps me everyday as much as it helps my readers. Positive mind-sets help you as a individual grow. That is why I bang on so much about the importance of developing your mindset. Because it totally directs how we feel, see and react to any given situation. It is these responses which control whether our life moves forward or goes back.

A positive mind-set will teach you to control your emotions and keep you focused on your path. You will learn to approve of yourself and begin to see the happiness of life.

Belief in yourself and having a positive mind-sets can give you the power to turn your failures and your challenges in life into success. You push that success to a whole new level and accomplish things you have never dreamed of. Those people with the positive attitudes can look at their obstacles and find the way to work through them.

If things at this moment in time are getting out of hand I would suggest you read this article by a sensational blogger, Leo Babauta of Zenhabits – A Guide to Cutting Back When You Feel Overwhelmed. Definetely worth a read

Many of my friends and colleagues are showing concern for me. They know the business has reached a very exciting stage, and we are succeeding on a variety of different fronts, but each of course are adding to the pressures let alone our workload. But right now circumstances with a family issue are taking centre stage for me, and my friends are worried whether I can handle everything coming my way.

When this morning a great friend lent his support and asked if I was alright, my reply was “you know when you have arrived when the problems come, but you face them with certainty of success.”

Very often, external factors send our minds reeling seeing our lives spiraling out of control. We tell ourselves “I’ll never get through this” “Life will always be one disaster after another” “This is going to be bad”. This internal chatter can be paralyzing.

That’s not the way it is for me. I will always tell myself that I will get through everything that comes my way, that either it will work out the best way for me, or ultimately I will come to realise that even defeat led me to find a better way.

So never let life’s struggles overwhelm you. Never forget the things that truly matter in this world right now and make sure you make the most of them.

Fight on always!
