Personal Enemy #1 - Burnout

On Monday I was wrestling with the onset of burnout. The feelings of overwhelm almost took me out!  From calendar and volunteer commitments to client deadlines, unanswered text messages, and emails...it was a lot. I was losing my mojo. Burnout stirs thoughts that can either crush us forever or inspire us to make big changes. Thoughts like:
  • I’m soooooooooooo tired.
  • What if I can’t do this any longer? 
  • If I keep on like this, what will happen to me inside? Can I bear it?
Last week I sent invitations to beta test our new 28 Day Reinvention Road Trip cohort. Obviously, I read ALL the applications, and one woman specifically mentioned BURNOUT! Instantly, I said out loud, “I totally get this! I can’t wait to work with her!” I wanted to jump through my laptop and give her a big hug.

Why?

Because burnout is real, folks and it takes real courage to admit feeling burned out. It takes even more guts to look it in the eye and say, "Hell, no! I’m taking my life back!"
 
Burnout is enemy number one because the world needs you. We need the unique, valuable things you and only you have to offer! If you burn out, not only do you die inside. The world is a lesser place.

Today, I ask you to make a commitment to yourself. Say out loud:
  • I have agency over my life. I can design it accordingly.
  • I will do what I need to so I can recharge.
  • I will actively seek out and embrace change so I don’t get bored.
  • I will enjoy the thrill of growth! 

If you are interested in stoking the fires of your motivation and digging deeper, join me to test out our 28 Days of Reinvention Road Trip. It's a unique opportunity to personally advise me on what works and what doesn't for the next set of travelers. We're selecting a small group so we can bond, learn and have FUN!
