- Acceptance. Don’t resist being or feeling tired. This might be your body’s way of telling you that you need to recharge. There are times when I have clearly been rowing up stream and didn’t even realize it until my arms literally could not paddle anymore. I had to stop resisting… throw the oars out of the boat and allow myself to go with the flow of my life instead of trying to control every damn thing! And it’s ok to rest. I have to be reminded on a consistent basis that “PACE” is important and that it is necessary to rest.
- Honesty. Take a long look in the mirror and ask yourself if what you are “overwhelmed” by is really that overwhelming or if you are making it up that it has to be that way. So many times in my life the things that were “burning me out” were things I did have control over. For example, I was saying yes to things out of guilt, shame, or obligation rather than just trusting myself and saying no and not worrying about what everyone would think of me.
- End Goal. Evaluate what the purpose or destination point for you and your business looks like. When I revisit my goals and my purpose I am often reminded where I am headed and how I can get back on track if I am in fact off course. I get clear about where I need to invest my time and energy and focus on the things that will support moving toward that end goal or destination. If you don’t know where you are going things will be very fuzzy along the way and it will be easy to get overwhelmed and stay stuck.
When I am feeling a lack of motivation it is generally because of one of these three things… I am resisting… I am not being honest with myself… or I am unclear as to where I am headed. Fix these things… and you should feel your motivation and drive start to recover and improve. If you need help with these things let’s hop on a call and drill them out.
