Overcome Anxiety and Overwhelm with this One Rule
Have you ever caught yourself thinking about how “lucky” some of the world’s most successful people are? I’m sure you have. We all do it from time to time.
And why wouldn’t we? I mean, the world’s billionaires who seem to be doing what they love and achieving the ultimate levels of success are lucky, aren’t they?
The short answer is no, they aren’t.
Don’t get me wrong. They are lucky in the sense that they were born in a time and place where the technology and infrastructure exists for them to do what they do.
And they are also lucky that they were born during a time when their particular skills were of immense value to the rest of the world.
Heck, when you calculate the odds of any one of us existing at all, they are lucky to have even been born in the first place. (Seriously, if you aren’t aware of how tiny the chances are of you or I existing, you can read about it here.)
But, you are also lucky in each of these exact ways.
So why does success seem to come to these people so much easier than it does to you or me?
It must be that they’re just “lucky”.
And we know this because we have tried to mimic their success only to be met with hurdles that were insurmountable which left us little choice but to give up and find another path.
This is proof that the only way the world’s elite got to where they are is by getting lucky and not being met with the same challenges we were.
At least that’s the lie we tell ourselves to justify quitting when we did.
But here is the reality; the world’s most successful people didn’t get to where they are because they avoided the challenges and hurdles that stand in the way of success. They got to where they are because they approached these roadblocks in a way that allowed them to go over, under, or around them.
Successful people don’t achieve what they do because they have never experienced adversity. They simply refuse to be stopped no matter how big the challenge and so when they were met with the exact same problems that forced you to quit, they took a second, took a breath, and figured out a solution so that they could keep moving forward.
But here’s the thing, they weren’t able to push through these challenges with sheer will or drive. That’s the mistake that many make when trying to reach a goal. They think if they just put their head down and run as hard and as far as they can they can just “muscle through” any issues that arise along the way.
And this mentality does seem to get results, at first.
But before long, it becomes pretty clear that trying to force your way into success is unsustainable. If you are always running in fifth gear you will burn out before long and lose your drive entirely.
In order to achieve mastery in any aspect of life, a balance must be struck. This is especially true in business.
You must have drive in order to keep you going when the chips are down, but you must also know when to take a step back, clear your head, and recharge so that you can keep your tank full and approach each inevitable barrier from a place of calm and stillness.
And this is what really separates the world’s most successful people from the rest. They know when it is time to push, and they know when it is time to reflect so that they can have the energy needed to find solutions when the next problem arises.
And the good news is, in this week’s Monday Mastery Minute I am going to teach you the simple technique that will allow you to do the same thing.
So, if you are ready to learn how to avoid anxiety, overwhelm, and burnout while confronting the challenges that you face in your business, then click here now and take a few minutes to watch this week’s episode.
I’ll see you on the other side, my friend.
