Do you ever feel completely overwhelmed like you’re in quicksand and can’t get out? I know this happens to me every now and then. It can be so difficult to pull yourself out but you have to find your way back to level ground. When I’m at that point, I have a way of giving into that sinking feeling and thinking things are worse than they are. I have to remind myself not to evaluate my life when I’m at this point because I can’t see things clearly when I’m sinking. I’ve found key things and people to be my lifeline so I can pull myself back out.
Over the past few weeks, I’ve felt a little discouraged that my business isn’t growing as quickly as I anticipated. I’ve also felt overwhelmed with all of the work I’m putting in with lackluster results. It’s caused me to evaluate what I’m doing, identify what’s not working, and finding better ways to reap the results I want. A sponsored post popped up on my feed for a webinar and I signed up. It turned out to be just what I needed to pull me out of that sandy pit I was sinking into. While I didn’t get incredible results from one day to the next, I was able to come up with a plan and was flooded with inspiration. If the plan doesn’t work, I’ll be more mindful to evaluate the results going forward before I let myself get back to the point I found myself in.
Each time I get out of that pit of overwhelm, I realize how far I’ve come, how many times I’ve fallen into quicksand and gotten out, and how resilient I’ve become. Today I just wanted to remind you that if you’re stuck in the sand, you’ll find a way out like you always do! Don’t let the current situation sink you. Don’t trick yourself into thinking there’s no way out or that you’ll be stuck there forever. This isn’t the first time you’ve been in a sandpit (probably won’t be the last) but you can find the way to get out!
In the comments, share something you do to help get out of the sinking feeling of overwhelm. You just might inspire someone to find a way to get out of the pit themselves! ❤
