Are you feeling overwhelmed? It’s time to flip the script and change your mindset. Here’s how.

Feeling Overwhelmed? Think About This!

I want to talk with you about something that’s come up a lot as I work with leaders…

The thing that I hear again and again and again from so many people is the feeling of overwhelm at work and in life. I believe there is something you can do about it.

Now… I’m about to make a BIG sweeping statement, but it’s one that I’ve put my stake in the ground on and believe to my core. That statement is — OVERWHELM IS A CHOICE.

The fact of the matter is that you have the sole power to make choices that help you or hurt you. I talk about this concept in-depth in my book LEVEL UP (Available on Amazon—shameless plug because it’s a great tool for leaders.)


You can make the choice to think about everything going on in your life from a negative perspective -OR- you can make the choice to think about everything going on in your life from a positive perspective.

Your choice in the midst of chaos largely determines your overall success and happiness.

I challenge you today to look at your life right now and say “everything I have going on right now is shaping me to become the person I need to be in order to crush my goals as life moves forward.”

At the end of the day, the choice is yours.

Are you going to make a choice FOR yourself, or AGAINST yourself?

Instead of choosing to be “overwhelmed” ?right now, choose to step?up?and take?on?the?work?…all with a positive outlook because you will become BETTER BECAUSE OF IT!
