What do you do when the tears and fears arrive, when overwhelm hits you and whilst you’re certain of what you’re doing and why, you’re just not seeing or hearing the engagement you crave ?
Let’s look at your options:
1. Pretend everything is OK and Keep Going
You continue on but have suppressed and not managed the triggers
How does this help ?
It doesn’t: ignoring, deflecting, distorting, generalising never helps long term
2. Fall to pieces: let overwhelm take you on the road of misery and sit in it.
You remain where you are & nothing happens
How does this serve you ?
3. See the overwhelm as Opportunity for Growth
You use this time to become aware of what the trigger was, where you would like to be, how you would like to use this challenge
You realign to your foundations: what is important & matters to you, your values, beliefs & goals
How does this Serve You ?
Self regulation is the ultimate strength when it comes to identity, benchmarking, goal setting, momentum and forward achievement
In all cases, the choice is ours alone
“Wherever you go, there you are”
We may fall into one of four categories:
Reliance (comfort & discomfort)
Rebellion (blame & shame)
Results (self regulation)
Realisation (achievement through adversity)
Where do you sit ?
