Overwhelmed? What?

Lately, I've been hearing a lot of consultants say they are "overwhelmed" with all that is going on for them. After all, there are Christmas specials to offer, incentives to to finish up, a new year to get ready for, and that's just business! Then there's the holiday shopping, baking, decorating, parties, and on and on.

Wait a minute! Let's see, in May we have graduations, receptions, summer vacations to plan for, and so on. In August it's time to get ready for back to school, last minute vacations, product sales before the holiday products are introduced and more.

Every month could be hectic. It's all about how you look at it and how you think about it!! Drop the word "overwhelmed" from your vocabulary and use something more positive. How about "I'm keeping it all together" or "Life is full but fun!" or "I'm keeping up." Give yourself credit for what you can do and what you are doing and stop thinking in terms of "overwhelmed" because you're not. If you really were, you'd be at the funny farm and not reading this!

Smile, what you focus on you get. One day at a time, one event after another, one foot in front of the other. All is fine, full, fun, and crazy maybe, but all is well!
